Why Nonprofits Love Books Time
The average rating clients give their BooksTime bookkeepers is 4.7 out of 5 stars. BooksTime even has a Satisfaction Guarantee. Below are some of the reasons why clients love BooksTime.
BooksTime bookkeepers typically have between 15 and 30 years of experience. They generally are CPAs with MBAs or advanced degrees in Accounting. Most of our nonprofit specialists have served as CFOs or treasurers for nonprofits, or have worked with many nonprofit clients in a public accounting context. We screen candidates extremely carefully (rejecting over 97% of all applicants) to ensure they are knowledgeable, detail-oriented, tech-savvy, and reliable.
Every organization is unique. We adapt to meet your specific needs and preferences. We can follow your processes and use your software, or recommend alternatives – it’s totally up to you.
We provide the bookkeeper all the software and equipment they need. Plus, by working with a firm instead of an individual, you don’t have to worry about payroll taxes, benefits and insurance – which leads to significant cost savings. Most importantly, we supervise your bookkeeper and support them with technical experts, saving management time for your staff.
Simple flat rates
With straightforward flat monthly rates, it’s easy to budget for bookkeeping.
I'm not sure where to even begin with how great working with BooksTime has been. But it certainly ranks in one of the best business decisions we've made to date. We worked primarily with their accounting / bookkeeping guru, Sonya, who is extremely detail oriented, organized, and thorough with all of her work.
When we worked together to do an initial cleanup of several years of our books, she not only provided the actionable intelligence to put our books in order but she found every single item that didn't add up perfectly and worked directly with me to properly account for them. On a personal level, I love working with Sonya. Her swift responses, top notch work, and sense of humor on occasion when she figures out you are trying to "invent" new GAAP principles to suit your needs, makes Bookeeping a breeze.
I tried out multiple bookkeepers before finding BooksTime with little success in regards to setting up the Quickbooks platform so that it integrates with my Ecommerce site, Amazon and manages my inventory all at the same time. BooksTime took their time to set it up properly, was always extremely communicative, and very thorough in cleaning up the mess I had made along the way. I highly recommend them for your bookkeeping needs and especially for those who have had trouble managing multiple channels and inventory through Ecommerce, retail, direct, etc.
Our company came out of the dark ages finding BooksTime. The everyday service demands of our small family plumbing and heating business gave us little time to look at the numbers and make sense out of them. We were lucky to even have a handle on how much money was really coming in and out, let alone how much was really in the bank. Four months in, we now know immediately where our accounts stand and can begin to plan ahead financially. BooksTime staff have tutored us through the entire process and every month our confidence in understanding the systems increases. BooksTime has helped us get a new grip on our business and organizing us for expansion down the road, as well as streamlined the time we spent laboring through numbers.
After working with BooksTime for more than a year, I highly recommend them. They helped us improve our bookkeeping processes and implement accounting best practices. Their service is very personalized and they customize their processes to meet my business's needs. They are always willing to adapt the service plan to make it work better for me. The bookkeepers are skilled, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Their team approach works really well. In addition to having a dedicated bookkeeper, it's great to have access to the high level expertise and oversight from the Senior Accountant.
I strongly recommend BooksTime. The team at BooksTime provides us with the highest level of service imaginable. Since we signed up in 2015, all our finances have been managed perfectly. They take care of any requests we have very quickly and always make themselves available for us. They go above and beyond to meet any need we have! I can't recommend them highly enough -- BooksTime is by far the best option out there. I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
