What Services Leanne Ballard Offers?


We provide FINANCIAL WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT Services.  This means that keeping your books organized and in compliance is just a small part of the big picture.  Unlike traditional bookkeeping firms that focus only on government compliance, we focus on the whole picture so that you can make educated decisions on the future of your business.  By definition, bookkeeping is recording past data, but how can you make proper decisions for the future without knowing the full picture with includes both past and present data to properly forecast the future?  This is where we come in.  We have a vast array of solutions at our fingertips to solve any business pain point.

Welcome to the word of Cloud Accounting.  We are able to provide training or assistance with your books and share a screen with you as though we were side by side.  With today's technology, and how most smaller bookkeeping firms operate, this allows you to save money as you aren't paying for things like travel time, or for a bookkeeping firm that is paying commercial rent.  But just because we don't charge like the big firms, doesn't mean your value is any less.  We still have the education, training, certifications, knowledge and resources to take care of you with a more personal approach.

We offer CUSTOMIZED fixed monthly plans based on your business needs, wants and budget.

No additional software purchases required.  Your personalized plan will include the cost of all software used.

No unexpected bills.  If you require additional work beyond the scope of your plan, we will agree on a fixed price in advance.

As both professional Bookkeeper and Tax Preparer with over a decade of experience, no deductions will be missed.

Tanya is a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor for BOTH QuickBooks Desktop and Online products, and since 2011, has been an active Beta tester for QuickBooks products so you know you are using someone with an in-depth technical knowledge of the program as well as bookkeeping knowledge.
