What size companies do you serve?
Do you work with PayPal?
Yes, we work with PayPal but recommend Stripe.
How Small is a Small Business?
We consider a small business or small nonprofit to be no more than 5 employees. We also provide bookkeeping services that are for mid-size organizations, up to 50 employees.
Can I cancel at any time?
Sure thing. We never lock you in, and we make sure it’s easy to get your data out. Unlike other bookkeeping services, all of our services are fully transferable to another manager. To cancel any service, we require 30 days notice so that we have time to move around the monkeys.
Oh and guess what? We have never lost a client. Those who join, love us. Why you say? Maybe because we love them and treat them that way.
If I leave the service, how do I export my data?
Quickbooks online data will be stored in your account. You have the ability to remove our access at anytime and then reassign access to another person of your choosing.
We haven’t done our books for a long time. Do you provide catch-up services?
Yes. We can do historical updates at a discounted rate for our new clients.
How do I import my existing books into Quickbooks?
Send us your most up-to-date Balance Sheet and Income Statement, and you’re done. If you don’t know where to find those, we can help. We also handle migrations from Desktop QuickBooks, Quicken, Peachtree and other accounting suites.
We currently use QuickBooks on our computer (or server), can you manage our QuickBooks file?
We can, but we won’t. We are 100% cloud based. If you want to drop that expensive server we can surely help you.
How much are your fees?
Our fees are strictly based on your needs. Our fees range from a LITTLE each month and go up from there. So you can say we charge a LITTLE or a LOT just depends.
What locations do you serve?
Do you offer on-site help?
“You can’t get there from here.” – unknown
Well yes, we provide on-site training and support at a premium, though. Just ask.
Can you help us with our Budget?
We LOVE budgets, making them and balancing them. Quickbooks Online has a budget feature that we can set up for you. We also utilize other software outside of Quickbooks to create and manage budgets. If your organization needs a budget – we can help.
What does JRK mean?
Those are my initials. I tried to come up with a fancier name for our business like “Awesome Quickbooks Bookkeeping, Payroll, Budgeting, eCommerce Business” but that seemed a bit long. My dad told me once that your name will never change so if you use that you won’t have to redo business cards every time you decide to make a name change. Figures that works for me. Notice there is no E before the R.
What are the benefits of Cloud Accounting?
Cloud accounting solutions are often subscription based, and customers can upgrade their monthly or annual plans to meet the growing needs of a business. This pricing model is similar to popular consumer SaaS providers such as Netflix, Google Apps, and Dropbox. Not requiring a long term commitment is another strong reason to consider cloud solutions. There are no contracts to lock you in with a specific vendor or cloud accounting technology.
Here are the top benefits to consider when researching cloud accounting solutions:
1. Safe storage of financial data
Cloud accounting technology can provide a more secure method of storing financial information than desktop based software. Data is routinely backed up to servers in multiple locations by the SaaS provider, and there are no physical hard drives or computers containing sensitive data that can be stolen. Since financial information isn’t kept on-premise, the risks of fires and natural disasters are also mitigated.
2. Sync data automatically
Cloud accounting software does the heavy lifting so you can spend your time on other important business tasks. Automatically sync your bank accounts so you don’t have to manually import transactions or verify expenses. If 84 percent of businesses using cloud software are cutting their application costs — it’s a good indicator that with the adoption of online accounting, you can too.
3. Pay as you grow
Small businesses often experience growing pains, which makes choosing software with future growth in mind a priority for many. Cloud accounting software allows businesses to purchase what they need and increase their spend as they grow. This includes adding more storage space, users, and more advanced features.
4. Multi user access
Once you reach a point where your business is looking to outsource specific tasks, using cloud accounting can help scale in a cost-effective and controlled manner. The multiuser feature of cloud accounting means you can give different people access to your financial records and bookkeeping process, which they can access remotely. This streamlines workflow, and allows you to ask your advisor or accountant questions directly, all based on the most up-to-date versions of documents. The multiuser feature makes for quick communication, team collaboration and less back and forth.
5. Data accuracy
Cloud accounting programs promote accuracy by streamlining the data-importing process and eliminating double-entry mistakes or other human errors that might occur. TechRepublic praises Saas-based accounting systems citing the “built-in controls that automate identification of duplicate entries, and prevent other errors.”
6. Prevent unauthorized access
The same way you don’t want strangers accessing your pictures or your Google documents, unauthorized users in your accounting software is even more disheartening, and even dangerous. Login credentials for your cloud accounting software enable only designated people to view and access your financial information. Data is completely private and protected.
7. Minimal downtime
As with any online or desktop software, periodic security upgrades and software updates are essential to keep programs running smoothly. Cloud accounting software is no different. You will experience some — though minimal — downtime for such updates, but will be alerted ahead of time.
