Paperbird Bookkeeping was started by a Chartered Professional Accountant with a single purpose in mind: to streamline the bookkeeping process for clients, offer quality bookkeeping services, and to make life simpler.
While working at a professional accounting firm in North Vancouver, Allison Feenstra noticed that high quality, experienced bookkeepers were in short supply.
Small businesses primarily had two options: pay for their accounting firm to do the bookkeeping (high quality but often highly expensive), or hire an inexperienced bookkeeper (which often caused messy results and therefore higher accounting fees anyway). Looking to offer a better experience for small businesses, Paperbird Bookkeping was created to fill the gap – a great bookkeeping service at a reasonable flat monthly cost that seamlessly integrates with the needs of your accounting and tax professional for an overall hassle-free experience.
We believe that technology-based bookkeeping systems are both more efficient and greener, and we strive to run our business as paperless as possible. We support Quickbooks Online, Xero, Hubdoc, and other cloud-based accounting software programs.
