How did you get started in this business?

Had an idea about providing businesses with an opportunity to outsource their accounting and bookkeeping work to a firm that will act as their accounting department at a fraction of the cost of an in-house accountant.

What types of customers have you worked with?

We work with individuals, corporations and all sorts of business activity including nonprofits,  Partnerships, S Corporations, and a lot more.
