Balanced Books, LLP = Bookkeeping Perfection!

Balanced Books, LLP offers outstanding, top-notch bookkeeping services for small to medium size businesses. We offer unbeatable bang for your buck!

My name is Crystal Stapleton and I’d like to introduce my company – Balanced Books, LLP. We’ve been around since 2014 and have doubled in size (with raving reviews) every year! Here are a few things that make us different than our competition:

1. What we do: We are a one stop bookkeeping shop! We record transactions, reconcile accounts, process checks, invoice customers, prepare payroll and related quarterly reports, calculate and pay sales tax, assist with implementing best accounting practices and much, much more. For a full list of services, visit our website: www.getbalancedbooks.com/bookkeeping-services. We tailor our bookkeeping packages to fit the needs of our clients! Most importantly, we work with the small business owner to help them understand their financial statements – to understand where their company has been and where their company is going!

2. What we don’t do: I always struggling with saying that we ‘don’t do’ something, however it’s important for our clients to know our focus and what we are good at! That being said, we don’t do income taxes! As a matter of fact, I don’t enjoy taxes (not every accountant does!!) and I choose not to do them! We do, however, work with our clients’ tax accountants to ensure that their taxes are filed timely and accurately each year. This is actually one of the many perks of having us as your bookkeeper! If you hire Balanced Books, we work directly with your tax accountant, so you can continue with your business! Your tax accountant will love us too!!

3. Our knowledge: First, I want to praise my team. Every single Balanced Books employee is a go-getter with an amazing personality. They are experienced with bookkeeping tasks and everyone has a niche. I couldn’t run this business without them, nor could we have doubled in size every year without them! We work great as a team and are constantly sharing knowledge with each other. Second, I hate tooting my own horn, so I’ll make it short and sweet. I am a licensed CPA, an MBA graduate, and a QuickBooks ProAdvisor. I have worked in the accounting profession since 2000, in both public and private practice and have seen a lot of fun things in my career. Why is our knowledge important? Well, because we’re a COMPLETE, well balanced bookkeeping machine! That and you will rarely find a bookkeeping firm owned and operated by a licensed CPA.

4. Limited Competition: Yes, of course we have competition, who doesn’t? But there aren’t many companies in our area that do EXACTLY what we do. For instance, a large CPA firm offers bookkeeping, but typically at a much higher rate, so it is often not affordable for the small business owner. There are other bookkeeping companies in our area, but most are not owned and operated by a licensed CPA (Balanced Books is!). Both CPA firms and other local bookkeeping companies often offer tax services and as I mentioned above – we choose not to do taxes because our company is VERY FOCUSED on creating the best bookkeeping experience around. In other words, your bookkeeper will be on speed dial! There are a few other competitors, such as online bookkeeping companies who lack the ‘personal’ touch and let’s not forget the $20/hour bookkeeper that may or may not know all the ins and outs of bookkeeping. That being said, we are highly specialized in what we do and we do it well!

5. We’re Awesome: Let’s face it, bookkeeping can be intimidating, but we are not! Let us help you with all of your bookkeeping needs!
