Simply Bookkeeping

I take a friendly and flexible approach to supporting these organizations, providing cost effective, customer-focused financial management services including real-time bookkeeping (on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis), payroll and remittances, system setup (chart of accounts, custom invoices, software setup), and audit preparation.
