Q: What is virtual bookkeeping?
Simply put, virtual bookkeeping offers all the same services as a conventional in-house
bookkeeper, except that the work is performed off-site at my office instead of at yours.

Q: What are the benefits of virtual bookkeeping?
  • Save up to 75% over the cost of hiring an employee or CPA
  • No employee turnover
  • No paying for down-time, vacation time, or sick time
  • No additional overhead costs
  • No HR, benefits, hiring or training hassles
  • Access to years of bookkeeping experience and advice
  • On-demand expertise is just a phone call or email away
  • Access your financial information anytime, anywhere
  • Higher security for your financial information and documents
  • Peace of mind knowing that the bookkeeping is accurate and taken care of
Q: How does the process work?
I will handle all your bookkeeping needs remotely from my office. You send your financial
documents to me at your scheduled time(s), and I process the information into your

Q: How do I get the information to you?
You can mail, fax, scan/email, or scan/upload your documents directly to your virtual
desktop. I highly recommend the scan/upload method as it is quick and easy to do and
enables me to update your bookkeeping in real-time, even on a daily basis if you need. But
I'm flexible and will work with you to develop a process and schedule that is easy for you to

Q: How do I know my financial information is secure?
The virtual desktop solution that I utilize offers state-of-the-art security, including firewalls,
anti-virus, anti-spyware, and other intrusion prevention measures. In addition, the system is
backed up multiple times daily and all connections are fully encrypted. In fact, the virtual
desktop system offers greater security for your financial information than you probably have
in-house right now. For more information on the features of our virtual desktop,

Q: Won't I lose control if my bookkeeping is done by an outside service?
Absolutely not. You always maintain 100% control of your finances and the
decision-making. I never process any transaction (such as writing checks, paying bills, or
invoicing customers) without your written consent or paper documentation provided and
approved by you or another authorized individual. In addition, you are given access to your
company's financial file so that you can review it and print reports at any time.

Q: Do I have to leave my current CPA?
No. I highly recommend that you do have a CPA that works with you and your business. I
do not do income tax work or offer tax or business planning advice, so having and
maintaining a good relationship with your CPA is important. In addition, I am a firm believer in
having more than one set of eyes reviewing your financials - this maintains a system of
checks and balances.

Q: Is there a long-term commitment with your services?
No, with my services there are no long-term contracts. Services are provided and billed
on a month-to-month basis. Should you ever wish to terminate service, I ask only that you
provide a 30-day notice of cancellation.

Q: Will virtual bookkeeping work for me?
Most likely yes! The processes and systems I have in place makes it possible for me to
serve all of your bookkeeping and QuickBooks support needs remotely. I designed my
system to be as easy as possible for you, which means you can spend more time working
on your business - not in it!
