We understand the cost of bringing in an in-house bookkeeper to your company. The costs associated with this not only include salary but payroll taxes, medical insurance, pension plan contributions as well as vacation and sick time compensation.  By outsourcing your bookkeeping to Third Hand Bookkeeping Service, you are gaining the knowledge and experience of a certified bookkeeper and certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor as well as ensuring your accountant will receive your accounting files in compliance with IRS standards. We offer a fixed fee service, giving you predictability and consistency in your costs, rather than an unpredictable price based on an hourly charge.

In order to better understand what your bookkeeping needs are and determine what package is best suited for your company, we will need to evaluate your QuickBooks file.  The main objective of the Bookkeeping Evaluation is for me to gain a thorough understanding of the current status of your bookkeeping file.
