Best Remote Bookkeeper Services for Philadelphia

You have a small business—but you hate accounting. However you’re dead without it—especially when it is time for taxes. You’re not big enough to hire a full-time bookkeeper or accounting department.

Bookkeeper Alternatives

Use Accounting Software.  If you do it yourself, without a bookkeeper, you are stuck learning complicated software (and accounting rules), and it can easily cost you $30 per month-but YOU still have to do the work, which is too time consuming and you’re always running behind.

Hire local bookkeeper. You alternatively could hire a local bookkeeper in Philadelphia, but many of them charge upwards of $300/month.

Online service. Or, consider an online bookkeeping service, but they still use your software (again at $30 per month).

There’s a new type of all-in-one bookkeeper / software services company—and their prices look great–but they’re not all the same.

Some bait you with a low sticker price—but charge per expense and you’re “just” over the limit. Or, they have a good initial setup—but the person they pass you over to isn’t as good and keeps requiring too much “help”—classifying accounts, explaining your business… (did they even pass over the notes?). You may as well do it yourself. Some have cool “mobile” options, but only if you’re into fruits (Androids are not wanted there).

The Big Question?

So, how can you get a bookkeeper to do your dreaded bookkeeping, where it also includes the bookkeeping software (which should be super easy to use (if needed)), that quickly learns your business so it frees you up to run it, that also has mobile access (on ALL devices), all at a MUCH lower cost than other bookkeeper alternatives (and much less than doing it yourself)?

Transaction Based. The price you are charged is not based on monthly expenses–unlike some services companies which force you into higher tiers if your monthly expenses increase (a double whammy).

Includes Budgets. Unlike other systems, you can enter custom budgets to help you stay on target for lower monthly expenses

Project Management. One of the few services that can even accommodate unlimited projects with budgets, trackable hours and project time by customer.

3) Most Mobile Bookkeeper Capabilities in Philadelphia

  • Mobile app for iOS and Android. You can access your books using a 100% native and 100% free app for Apple or Android—providing you the most flexible options (without having to change your phone type).

4) Best Bookkeeper Security in Philadelphia

  • Restricted Access Control. You can allow select employees and your CPA permission to access to your data, but only after having received permission directly from you. Just another safety precaution, so you never have to worry about your data, even with people inside your company.
  • No Keys. Bookkeeping Zoom is a remote service; there is no need to have another key to your office floating around with no way for you to keep track of it. You don’t have to deal with physical access security (no keys, no missing stuff)!
  • US Business. Bookkeeping Zoom is an American owned and operated company. Because of this, your data will always stay on American soil.
  • Professionally Screened. All bookkeepers have been screened with professional background checks. You can rest assured knowing that your data is safe with Bookkeeping Zoom.

5) Price Performance Leader in Philadelphia

  • Lowest Price. Lowest overall price for what you get when compared to similar local or national online bookkeeperservices, or even service/software companies. Period.
  • Saves you Money. The service typically saves from 6-12 hours each month. If your time is worth more than a minimum wage—it SAVES you money!
  • Saves Software Costs. Plus, you save an average of $30 per month for the software that is included!
  • Painless Accounting. And let’s not forget the relief—from the PAIN of dealing with “accounting” the very thought of it makes us quiver–and the lack of sleep (especially come tax time) as you desperately try to catch up (April 15th is always looming).
  • Pays for Itself. The tax savings alone (because you can now account and deduct for “every” expense) can usually pay for the service multiple times over!

What’s Holding You Back?

Now that you can see some of the advantages of Bookkeeping Zoom, what’s holding you back? Following are common questions for Philadelphia.

  • How secure is my data? Usually more secure than it is within the office. All data stays in the US, uses secure SSL Encryption, includes selective permissions (so you can limit access to select employees if desired), and it is backed up automatically—so there is much less risk you’ll ever lose your data.
  • Can you import my existing records? Yes, we can import data from most accounting programs including QuickBooks, NetSuite, Sage, and Xero, in addition to downloading current and past transactions directly from financial institutions.
  • Does the data export to other popular systems? You can easily extract the data from the software. Whether you can download into another accounting software depends on their technical capabilities.
