Hi, I’m Jenny, your bookkeeper!
Let’s take a look at your expenses and see how we can help you.
OK, thanks. I just opened the income statement you prepared.






Great. I highlighted your fuel charge–your transportation expense is lower than your industry average. We may be missing a valuable tax deduction. Do you use your personal car for work?
Oh, all the time! Sometimes I feel I live in my car.






Well, when you can escape your car, record any mileage you drive for work. Send the mileage to me and I’ll make sure we claim your correct tax savings. I’ll let you know when I find other savings and drive safely!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is forward-thinking bookkeeping and taxes?

Traditionally, bookkeeping only looks backwards at what has happened within your business. Let’s break tradition. As we handle your bookkeeping and taxes, we reach out to you with recommendations to save you money or grow your business. With our focus on businesses like yours, we get really good at it. And with our accounting software, we get really efficient at it (which keeps your costs lower, too).

Do I get a dedicated representative?

Yes, our goal is to make things simple: you communicate with one ZIpBooks expert but get the expertise of a seasoned team. You and your team will interact with one dedicated ZipBooks expert who leverages our diverse team as opportunities, questions or exciting once-in-a-business-lifetime opportunities arise.

How long does it take to get started?

Fill out your contact information and a ZipBooks expert will reach out to you shortly. We’ll set up the first appointment where we will dive into your bookkeeping situation and answer any questions. We’ll kick off the plan that works best for you.

Can I upgrade (or cancel) later?

Yes, and at any time! We don’t believe in locking in ZipBookers (clients like you). Upgrade, downgrade, or cancel: we will change our services as your preferences or business needs change.

How does ZipBooks data protection compare to my local CPA?

We’re fanatical about keeping your information safe and secure. We safely and securely store all your business’s information. And using ZipBooks, you protect your accounting data from physical loss and theft. If your hard drive crashes or your laptop is stolen, your data remains safe online and it’s backed up in multiple locations.

Is it easy to migrate from another service?

No problem. Don’t wait until the end of the year; we will do the heaving lifting to get everything transitioned! We can catch your business up on a backlog of work and move your data from other professionals, services or software.
