In the middle of an important business meeting where the financials of my business were being reviewed, I found out that the balance sheets were not matching the bank account. This not only created understandable worry for those involved, but was also embarrassing for me. I reached out to Steph's Bookkeeping Service and in less than 24 hours of my initial call, she had audited and corrected 10 months of business financials and produced a report for me to submit. She also completed this work on a weekend. All I have to say is WOW! I wish I had found Steph's Bookkeeping service sooner. Highly recommend!

I bought a business from its prior owners and needed help organizing our books going forward. Steph's Bookkeeping Service has been an excellent partner.
