FAT CAT BOOKKEEPING!

About

Simple, straightforward virtual bookkeeping for your small business or personal finances. Based in San Diego, I work out of my home office with my cat supervising your books to ensure that they are both beautifully organized and accurate.

For many people, keeping the books up to date or even getting started with the process can be difficult. With all the different options and information out there, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. I decided to create a simple, professional, approachable environment where small business owners could feel comfortable tackling their bookkeeping projects.

Pricing

N

I like to keep my pricing simple and transparent. My fee is $65/hour, or fixed rates based on services selected. My fixed rates are just an estimate of my hourly fee, a projection of how long I think it’ll take me to do the books.

N

Pricing is based on things such as number of accounts and transactions, types of transactions, frequency of services, time needed, and complexity. Please note: all bookkeeping is completed in house. I do not outsource your bookkeeping to other companies. 

N

On average, my monthly clients typically see pricing in the $400 to $900 per month range. For books with a higher number of accounts or level of complexity, pricing may be in excess of this range. For simple books with few accounts, pricing may fall below this range. Please expect your monthly bookkeeping costs to be appx between 1 to 4% of gross income.

N

Catch up and clean up projects are charged by the hour and typically run several thousand dollars depending on the scope of work. Projects of any size are welcome, and small projects may be well under this range.

How it works

Your books are kept in QBO. You have access to them 24/7.

For those interested, I offer a free 20 minute introductory call  where we can talk about your business’s bookkeeping needs and see if we’re a good fit. Texting and emailing are also welcome.

I utilize a remote communication model. This means that I primarily use email to speak with clients, with phone calls being fairly rare. This increases my efficiency, as well as gives us a record of conversation to refer back to when referencing information.

Sign a simple, straightforward, one-page engagement letter, and upload your documents via secure link or to a private, password-protected client folder for safe handling.

Bank statements and documents are due each month. Monthly bookkeeping fees are due on the 1st of each month.
