What is an “Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor”?

Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors are typically CPAs, accountants, small business advisers or consultants who have been tested and certified on QuickBooks annually. ProAdvisors help businesses customize QuickBooks for their unique needs and help them get the most out of the software. The Advanced Certification is another step above the rest. This certification is more rigorous training and testing. It is designed to deepen the expertise of the ProAdvisor and distinguish them as “QuickBooks experts”. So rest assured, we are up to date with the QuickBooks products.

How does it work?

Every client’s needs are unique so we can discuss what works best for you. Rest assured that you will remain in complete control of your cash transactions, invoice approval and check writing, but your overall financials will be automated, updated and closely monitored by us. Say goodbye to the enormous burden doing everything yourself or of keeping a bookkeeper on staff.

Will I still need a CPA?

Yes! We advise that you use a CPA to prepare your income tax returns and we are happy to work closely with them. Your CPA is an expert in the ever changing tax laws and will help you develop a strategy to legally minimize the amount of taxes that are owed. If a business is about to conduct a major operation such as an expansion or acquisition, the CPA can inform its ownership of any possible tax ramifications. If you do not currently have a CPA we have a network of these tax professionals that we would be happy to share with you.

What do your services cost?

Every company is unique. We will determine your needs and give you a customized proposal and engagement letter that will detail your needs, our services and the associated fees.
