I needed a bookkeeper this spring to help me get my business in order. I had tons of papers and receipts everywhere and didn't even know where to begin! Kathleen helped me step by step in my home to start organizing and getting things put into QuickBooks. She taught me how to enter and use the program. She also helped me prep everything for my accountant so it was extremely easy and efficient giving him all the paperwork he needed to do my yearly taxes. Now I'm able to do most everything on my own and Kathleen will come out to help me tidy up the edges and keep me on track. She's also really easy to get ahold of between appointments for quick questions. That's nice if I'm working and I have a question, I'm not stuck for hours or days, I can keep on going. If you're a small business (I'm a one person show), I highly recommend Kathleen to help with your bookkeeping needs!

Doing business with Larry was a GREAT experience. He helped me with financial planning for my business and personal taxes during the year so I got back money or didn't have to pay any extra tax at year end. Smart guy!!! Plan on telling all my friends to give Larry a go for Tax planning and tax returns for now and forever. Great job Larry as always. Hope to be associated with you for a long time to come. Thanks for all your help! i will be talking to you during the year with question regarding tax planning and the sort and see you next year for tax returns. Everyone should give Larry a try to see what he can do for you. He's helped me so much. Keep up the good work!

I can do all aspects of accounting on QuickBooks. I've been doing this for over 20 years. I can also audit books. I recently found that someone embezzled almost $200,000 from a company, and that person is going to court on a felony with a possible 4 to 15 years.
