Rates and Contact

Working with each new client, the initial phase is always challenging -- for each client is different; i.e. they do things differently, they have different set-ups, they think differently. Our first task is to seek to understand their operations and their preferences. We adopt as much of their practices as possible. We try to support / collaborate with each client.

We have seen many errors on Quickbooks files – a high 80+ percent of Quickbooks files require some clean-up. Once we understand the operations and have the historical facts, we then fix the errors, clean up the book to arrive to a good starting point, which normally is based on the most recent tax returns. Then, we put the right set-up and workflow to ease ongoing regular bookkeeping tasks. Once we have it all figured out, we document the workflow so that it is easy to follow.

The initial phase is a one-time job and is challenging. Terry as the principal prefers to tackle the clean-up and set-up tasks herself. It can take 3 to 5 months. Once everything goes smoothly and the books are brought up-to-date, Terry transitions the job to one of her team, who from then on is dedicated to assist the client most of the times.

Rates for new clients:

  • Terry: $65/hour

  • Our team-member: $45/hour

(Please note: We DO NOT take consulting type of job for the result is not satisfactory. We only work with long-term, regular clients on ongoing basis. It could be one-full-day a month, twice a month, etc. We think clients' time is best spent on what they do best which yields the highest returns.)
