About Us

Bookkeeping is really only asmall part of what we do

CFO consulting is actually the most impactful part of the services we provide to every client. Though we do daily accounting, our primary focus is on using financial data to transform your business. With a team of professionals like ours as a trusted partner, we’re able to guide you through the peaks and valleys of your business’s financials so you can build solid financial safeguards for the future.

So why are we called “The Bookkeeper”?

The inspiration for the company name came from one of our founder’s favorite films, “The Untouchables”. Craig decided to use the name The Bookkeeper because of the minor, yet significant character of George.

However, once he started working on client financials, he couldn’t help making plans and offering suggestions on how their businesses could improve. And thus, an unintended perk became one of the defining aspects of our company: that all monthly bookkeeping clients receive free CFO consulting from a former corporate CFO with over two decades of experience. By choosing The Bookkeeper, you will see opportunities for the future, have clarity about your business decisions and have a trusted team of financial experts walking alongside you.
