When a small business owner knows that they need to ‘keep the books’ but doesn’t know where to begin, Silicon Valley Accounting Solutions has the answers.

We will set up a QuickBooks (QB) file, either online or on their desktop, that serves as a central place to hold all of their transactions.  With the use of QuickBooks features and add-on tools, one of our QuickBooks ProAdvisors will automate the capture and classification of activity to simplify accounting and make it efficient.  We can aid in the catch-up and/or clean-up to bring the books current and then either train the client to keep up the books themselves or maintain it for them.
