“KYB is the single most essential element of my operation. They handle my books, credit card processing, collections, and even my personal banking.”
There are many costs involved with hiring, training, and retaining a permanent in-house staff person. You must consider the overall cost of employing a bookkeeper, including overhead costs, vacation time, insurance, equipment, training, and the risk of supervising a function you are not an expert in. Bookkeeping is our only business and our staff are supervised by our managers. We assign duties to the staff best skilled to accomplish each task. We have developed systems and procedures that work which we customize and document for each client. Our team approach of training multiple staff on each client will make you less vulnerable to turnover than with an in-house bookkeeper.
Absolutely! Our clients love us and have offered on several occasions to rave about us to other potential clients. Just ask for the type of client you wish to speak to and we will find the right ones to connect you with.
Our ideal clients are those that see the value in outsourcing their accounting functions. We provide more than just simple transaction processing; we partner with our clients to make them look good.
Technology has evolved so much over the years and Keeping Your Balance uses it to make outsourcing a reality for small businesses. We add value by adding the professional aspect of an accounting department available to our clients without the cost of an in-house team. Keeping Your Balance are members of The Sleeter Group, a national organization of bookkeeping consultants, which keeps our finger on the pulse on what's new and exciting.
Keeping Your Balance will assign you an account manager as well as a bookkeeper so you have a main as well as a backup point of contact. We want to ensure that you have timely responses to emails and requests so we make sure each client has at least 2 internal points of contact.
Keeping Your Balance tries to keep it as transparent as possible. We can have dedicated email addresses, fax numbers and even phone numbers; we work hard to give the feel of an in-house accounting department.
Keeping Your Balance offers offsite, outsourced solutions and do not work onsite at our clients offices. We are happy to accommodate special requests from time to time to attend a board meeting or satisfy other one-off needs but we do not come on a regular basis.
Data protection is the most important aspect of our business. We have implemented very high levels of security to protect the confidentiality of your data. All financial documents are stored on our secure server and we keep very little paper in our office (we love shredding!). At Keeping Your Balance we take great care not to email attachments containing confidential information and strongly encourage our clients not to do so as well. We provide the necessary tools to interact with our office in a secure environment. Our clients can rest assured that their sensitive financial information is kept under lock and key and completely confidential.
If your books aren't being done accurately, you are not in control of them. With Keeping Your Balance you can feel comfortable because we can work with you to put controls in place to reduce your stress.

A: Easy! There are actually several options.
Some of our clients are able to use our services exclusively and for others we recommend they have an outside CPA. If you need one, we can connect you to a few that we love to work with.
