Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the Basic Bookkeeping package?

Every month we will categorize all business related income and expense transactions and issue you a monthly financial statement consisting of a Balance Sheet and a Profit and Loss. These reports will help you understand your business past to make decisions on your business future. They are required in order to do any tax planning or to fund your business with mid-year loans. Unlimited email support is also included.

What’s not included in the Basic Bookkeeping package?

Anything above and beyond basic tracking of income and expense items for the month is not included in the monthly price. However, additional services are available as an add-on to your basic bookkeeping package. These add-on's include: accrual basis accounting, detailed financials showing class tracking or job profitability, invoicing, bill payment, payroll, sales tax filing, tax planning and preparation and legal help. Monthly strategy sessions are also available for additional fees.

Yes. Our team must use Quickbooks Online in order to handle the bookkeeping. Versions - Simple Start, Essentials, Plus, or Advanced are all acceptable. Quickbooks Self Employed are not. If you have a current subscription, you are ahead of the game. No need to get another subscription. If you do not currently have a subscription, the on-boarding videos will walk you through how to get that setup. We are able to offer 30% off to our new clients for 12 months. This is the best discount you can get with Quickbooks Online. We highly recommend signing up for Essentials or Plus to start.

What is required of me?

We do not offer refunds but you can cancel anytime. We do want to provide world class service to you but we cannot do that without the proper documents and items requested during onboarding and in the future. We also cannot read minds so there will be various questions asked throughout the month to make sure we are categorizing things appropriately. Timely responses are appreciated.
