Bookkeeping services by the hour at $30/hr
Frequently Asked Questions
can you give me an idea of what i'll end up paying each month?
Not until we get to know your business. Some of the total cost will depend on the systems you have in place to capture your data. For example, are you diligent about collecting and providing records in a timely manner, or will your bookkeeper need to take the time to track down the information themselves later? Additionally, every business has different needs which means that your total monthly cost will vary depending on what additional services you need (payroll, gst/pst, invoicing, etc.) and the level of reporting detail you'd like to see.
can't i just hire my friend's daughter for $15 per hour to do my bookkeeping?
Sure, but a cheaper hourly rate doesn't always mean a cheaper bookkeeper. Inexperienced bookkeepers can make costly errors that require your accountant's help to fix, and can make the total cost of bookkeeping significantly more expensive overall. Also, not all bookkeeping experience is equal: just because someone was trained to do bookkeeping for one company, doesn't mean they are a qualified bookkeeper - systems, software, and accounting needs can vary greatly across companies. Our bookkeepers are not only well trained, but also have access to an in-house CPA for accounting advice and support, so you'll always know you're getting quality bookkeeping results.
do you have any discounts for sole proprietors?
No. However, our bookkeeping systems for sole proprietors are designed by a CPA to provide your accountant with exactly what they need to report on your personal tax return each year. This means that you can generally expect to save more on accounting fees at tax time than if you hadn't hired a bookkeeper, or hired an inexperienced bookkeeper. Plus, you get the benefit of being able to track your progress during the year.
do you provide tax and accounting services too?
No. Even though we are CPA run, we specialize in bookkeeping only. If you need tax and accounting services we've partnered with Richmond + Feenstra Chartered Professional Accountants to maximize information sharing and efficiency and help keep costs low.
