Are you wasting:

}

Time:

What could you do with an extra 10, 20, 40 or even more hours a month? Maybe find another contract or two…cha ching!

Cash:

How much are you losing each month not knowing the true cost of your projects? It would be nice to pocket an extra 5, 10, 20 percent or more. Wouldn’t it?

Energy:

How does it sound to stop stressing about the state of your books? Like a sigh of relief…every month…every tax season.

That’s Tough

Ask Us How We Know…

2012 – we were down to the last few bucks in the bank and needed a hail Mary. So, we opened our first business selling books on Amazon.  We were rockin’ and rollin’ for 2 years until…

We were forced to actually look at what we were spending. And guess what? It was more than we were making. It doesn’t take a genius to know that isn’t good business. So, we had to close the doors – and that stunk.

The Good News…

Now we help contractors make sure this doesn’t happen to them! Our Clean-up, Catch-up, Monthly & Upgrade services will take your bookkeeping to the next level so that you can make wise financial decisions in your business.

CAUGHT UP.

KEPT UP.

That’s our motto! We know how to whip your books into shape and keep’em that way. Wouldn’t it be great to let us do the heavy lifting so that you can focus on your projects? Yep!

Working With Us

who’s behind the curtain?

That’s a great question! At Abundant Life Bookkeeping we believe in working closely with our clients; and you should know what that looks like.

9

Professional:

Rude folks sorta rub us the wrong way, so we treat our clients the way we want to be treated; with respect and courtesy.

9

Skilled:

Learning is a hobby with us. We believe in delivering contractors the best industry know-how; it’s our responsibility and we take it seriously.

9

Friendly:

Cheesy? Maybe. But we enjoy the relationships we have with our clients and want to do the same with you. So, hopefully, you like a little laughter with your business!

Why A Virtual Bookkeeper?

“You’re…virtual? What does that even mean?” It means that we’re not tied down to a location or a set number of hours. Which is a great thing for you. And here’s why:

Low Overhead:

We’re a contractor, like you. So we cover the expenses for our own:

  • Supplies
  • Training
  • Software
  • Insurance
  • Vacation/PTO 

Think how much that will save you each year in employee expenses…a bucket load!

Affordable:

$44,767 – that’s the national average salary of a bookkeeper as of August 2021 according to salary.com. Add in benefits and that number goes up to $67,533!

The starting price for our monthly bookkeeping packages are a fraction of that. PLUS we work on a contract basis so there’s no long term commitments!

Owner - Bookkeeper & Tech Guy

I too am a born again believer and am thankful to live out my life with Amanda and our kiddos. I love tinkering with graphic design (like the website?). I’m a self-published author – you can see my book here. I also enjoy woodworking and ice cream floats (a lot!)

What Clients Are Saying

Professional, friendly, and very helpful!

Amanda is my best partner in helping keep my books current! I highly recommend her services! She is professional and always ready to help. When I have trouble, she finds a solution, fixes the problem, and gives expert advice to better my book keeping. You’ll not be disappointed by Amanda!

Jethro B.

Best decision I ever made!

I have been so happy with the service Amanda provides! She takes a lot of stress off of my shoulders and allows me to focus on my business. What a value and asset she is to our team. We have used a lot of bookkeepers in the past and she by far surpasses all of them! It is a pleasure working with her!

Amy B.

Capable, nice, and trustworthy.

I have been very happy with the work Amanda has given our company. My favorite part of working with her is her sweet personality. She has also helped move our bookkeeping into the 21st century by helping us migrate our work to the cloud. Her accuracy and mindfulness to the details are excellent. We have been working together for over a year now and we are happy we engaged her. You will be too.

Brent B.

So thankful for her expertise!

After a disastrous relationship with my last CPA and thousands of dollars worth of mistakes I wanted someone who would listen to me and know how to fix the issue. Amanda worked tirelessly to not only fix an entire year’s worth of mistakes on QB’s but set up a totally new system to start the year off right. So thankful for her expertise.

Jill R.

Life saver for my small business!

Amanda was a bookkeeping life saver for my small business! She was extremely helpful even teaching me some basic bookkeeping matters that I didn’t know. She used different platforms, created videos, and did everything necessary to go above and beyond to help me. I’m very thankful for her expertise.

F.A.Q.

How do I know I'm ready for Abundant Life Bookkeeping?
  • If you’re spending more time and energy on bookkeeping than needed and your projects are suffering for it
  • If you’re not keeping up with your bookkeeping at all and putting your companies’ future at risk
  • If you’ve tried other bookkeepers and felt like they didn’t “get you”, or understand the needs of a contractor
  • If you or your office staff has not understood exactly how to use QuickBooks Online or haven’t been trained to accurately do bookkeeping
Can you file my taxes too?

No, we are professional bookkeepers, not accountants or CPA’s. We keep track and categorize your income and expenses and make sure that everything is accounted for (and nothing is duplicated) so that your CPA can give you tax advice and file your taxes more easily and quickly.

We CAN and will coordinate with your CPA at tax time to make getting your taxes done more seamless.

I use other apps for my business. Can I still use them?

Of course! There are many apps that integrate with QuickBooks Online such as Buildertrend, Knowify, Acculynx, Housecall Pro, and Service Mate just to name a few. If you need suggestions on apps to help your business we can discuss that as well!

What if I'm not a contractor, can you still help me?

We primarily work with contractors, but we’d be happy to see if we can help! Even if it’s to give a referral to a trusted coleague.

Do I have to send you statements every month?

We try to make this as smooth and simple as possible – because we all know that contractors don’t need any more stress! QuickBooks Online automatically pulls in business transactions from most banks.

We then categorize and reconcile those transactions. Any transactions we’re unclear about will go to your client portal to easily provide us with clarification. As we get more familiar with your business and your typical spending there are less questions each month.

We can help you keep track of your receipts as well!

Don’t let another month go by second guessing your profitability.
