Let us know what you’re looking for.

The time it takes depends on the state of your books and the volume of transactions. If you’re only a few months behind and have few transactions it can be done very quickly. Contact us for a custom quote to match you needs.

When you sign up to do a bookkeeping clean up with us, you are in good hands. We will update your books back to the agreed upon date and make sure that all your transactions are properly recorded, your accounts reconciled, and everything is correctly balanced. You will have accurate financial reports to file taxes and have a better idea of the financial health of your business. 

We can provide you with the information that would be necessary for us to perform expert bookkeeping clean up services for your business. 

In order to determine the scope of a bookkeeping clean up engagement, we will have a review meeting to determine what your goals are, what you will be using the information for, and any deadlines that you may have to meet. This will help determine which accounts to include, how much detail to include, and what process to use for you. 

Every company has unique needs that we base our pricing on. While we try to give a set fee in the beginning, sometimes due to the complexity of the job, we must charge by the hour. We give an estimate before the work begins and keep you informed as the work progresses so you’ll know how much you’ll be charged in the end.

Our bookkeeping clean up fees are set for the work that we do for you. The only extra charge you would have is for an online accounting system, such as Quickbooks Online if you choose to do so.
