Next: Choose a Package
This package is for you if you say... "I have no payroll (or is handled by a service) and my business is doing well. I don't have time to deal with the bookkeeping myself, or train someone in house, but I don't want to fall behind and I'm tired of surprises at the end of the year."
Basic Bookkeeping -$300 and up monthly
Coach Me Bookkeeping Package -$250 and up monthly
This is the package for you if you say... "I am very computer literate, and software savvy. I'm familiar with debits and credits and I know how I want to handle my business. I don't have payroll (or I use a payroll service) I can handle all the data-entry, I just need a little support to make sure I don't make any mistakes."
Payroll Services are available
as a standalone service that can be added to any package.
Prices start at $125 for a basic one to four employee package (including owner payroll) and go up based on the number of employees and benefits provided.
