Client Testimonials

Hear what our clients have to say about our virtual bookkeeping services!

Lana Taylor, CEO

ONTrack Media & Entertainment Inc.

"Carrie worked as my office assistant at ONTrack a few years back.  She worked primarily as a bookkeeper with her duties ranging from identifying and recording transactions to preparing month- and year-end reporting up to trial balance.   At the time, Carrie was friendly and professional in her demeanor, focused in her role and accurate in her work.   In short, I really believe that she loved what she was doing.

I am thrilled to learn that she has launched this service and I know she will become a highly valued asset to many businesses.  If you were to ask me to give a Carrie a rating from 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest rating, I would give her 5 stars without hesitation."

What other benefits do you get?

In addition to more time, peace of mind and the ability to plan your financial life, here are some other great benefits...

Privacy and Confidentiality

Privacy and confidentiality are of utmost concern for professionals in the financial world.  We know how to keep your information safe, but an internal employee may not have the same high ethical standards.

Red-Carpet Service

At tax time, those that are organized and ready to roll get the red-carpet treatment...while small businesses that are disorganized and unprepared get put on extension.

Lower Payroll Costs

Having an outsourced financial team lowers your payroll costs significantly because you won't have to hire for these positions, thus avoiding wages, payroll taxes and other fringe benefit costs.

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 & 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 and text 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 above.  However, additional services are available as an add-on to your Basic Bookkeeping Package.  These add-ons include: detailed financials showing class tracking or job profitability, invoicing, bill payment, payroll, sales tax filing and tax planning & preparation.  Monthly strategy sessions are also available for additional fees. 

How do I request additional services?

Once you have elected to enroll in the Basic Bookkeeping Package, you will have an opportunity to review additional services in more detail and select those that suit your business best. 

What qualifications does your team have?

Many of our team members are CPAs and Certified Pro-Advisors.  You can rest assured that you are working with the highest-quality professionals.  We all also belong to a large network of financial professionals so if there is a question we have not seen before, we have a lot of resources in our back pocket to find an answer for you fast. 

What happens after I sign up for the Basic Bookkeeping Package?

Once you enroll, you will be taken to a few subsequent screens that will allow you to add additional services if necessary.  Then you will be given access to the membership portal so you can watch a short series of onboarding videos.  Simply follow the directions in the videos and we will get to work ASAP.  The final step in the onboarding video series is to book a call with the CEO of our company for an introductory phone call.  We love the opportunity to chat with our new clients so we can serve you well!

What information do I need to share?

Ideally, our bookkeeping team will need access to your business bank and credit card accounts in order to efficiently complete your monthly financials.  Many banks allow for accountant (read-only) access to bank accounts.  This access helps us to keep our fees affordable and our efficiency high. 

If I have a question, how long does it take to get an email response?

We pride ourselves in being very responsive to our clients' important inquiries.  We strive to respond within 24 hours AT MOST (except over weekends and holidays).  If we are very busy, we will respond to let you know we've received your email and will address it shortly. 

What hours do the bookkeepers and other team members work?

Due to the flexible nature of bookkeeping work, many team members work various hours of the day and night. However, we use standard M-F 9-5 work hours to address emails and phone calls. 

Is Quickbooks Online required to sign up for the Basic Bookkeeping Package?

Yes.  Our team must use Quickbooks Online in order to handle the bookkeeping at the price list above.  Versions - EasyStart, Essentials or Plus are all acceptable.  Quickbooks Self-Employed is 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 onboarding videos will walk you through how to get that set up.  We are able to offer 50% off to our new clients for 12 months (20% off with EasyStart).  This is the best discount you can get with Quickbooks Online.  We highly recommend signing up for Essentials or Plus to start. 

Do you require a contract?

Nope!  No contract is required.  However, there are no partial-month refunds. 

Is an engagement letter required?

Yes, an engagement letter is required.  You can click that you accept the Terms and Conditions and that will act as our engagement letter.  It will be available for download from the membership site.

I am a wife and mother of 2 girls, residing near beautiful Elora, Ontario (recently named one of the 12 best small towns in Canada, according to Travel & Leisure magazine).  When I am away from my desk, you’ll most likely find me on an ice rink somewhere – either playing hockey or coaching my kids.  In between games and practices, I love to read, play board games or enjoy movie nights with my family.
