We make your business our business

Our number one priority is to choose what’s best for your business.

Not in an overbearing, ‘because-I-said-so’ kind of way.

We work with you on your growth journey with the respect, honesty and understanding you deserve.


We don’t do things the old way.

We believe you and your business deserve better.

You want change

  • You have the drive to improve your current situation
  • You want to know the truth about your business so that you can grow
  • You’re always learning and looking to grow through new ideas
  • You want strategic advice from your bookkeeper
Let’s figure out what’s best for you

Preparing for change and planning for a successful future requires you knowing the truth about how your business is doing right now, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to give you that clarity.

We know this because we’ve been sharing business truths for a long time, across multiple industries and technologies.

We were early adopters of QuickBooks and Xero. What you need depends on your business.

What we recommend to you is custom advice.

Who are we to give personal advice?

I started Beyond Balanced Books over thirty years ago. For the first twenty years of business, I was the business, which is why I’m so focused on making sure our clients get the support they need to be able to step out of the daily operations and look at the bigger picture. I have a personal understanding of the rollercoaster running a business means, which is why I still love being hands-on in the firm, giving strategic advice to our clients, and helping the team to grow.

When I’m not fixing a problem for a client, I’m fixing up some homemade jam, spending time with my family, or getting lost in the beauty of the great outdoors.

The Team

The Beyond team loves working with clients and getting to know them. From recording, reconciling, and reviewing, to helping a client get started with their books, to assisting with out of the ordinary transactions, we enjoy digging in and learning what’s important to make our clients’ lives easier. We are excellent listeners and love what we do!

I am a fourth-time entrepreneur and I know how critical the support I have received from Beyond has been to ensure that my finances stay in order. I have confidence in the validity of our numbers and trust the historical analysis as a basis for future planning. Beyond has kept me in ship shape since Day 1 of my business and I really appreciate their proactive prompts about items before they become an issue.
