Outsourced bookkeeping – We prepare a monthly income statement and balance sheet at a fraction of the cost of what your own bookkeeper would charge. Also, we do day-to-day bookkeeping tasks, like categorizing transactions, reconciling accounts against bank statements.

Outsourced accounting – But we don’t stop there. We also take a high-level look at your business to identify any opportunities to reduce your tax liabilities.

It’s just like texting a friend—a friend dedicated to saving you money.

Great. I noticed that 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?

Pass it all off to us.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is forward-thinking bookkeeping and taxes?

Traditionally, outsourced bookkeeping services have only looked backwards at what has happened in the past. Our approach breaks that tradition.

As we handle your bookkeeping and taxes, we proactively contact you with recommendations to save you money or grow your business. With our focus on accounting, we get really good at knowing what businesses need from their team of outsourced accountant experts.

We continue to build features into our accounting software that make bookkeeping tasks like categorization and bank statement reconciliation easier with each passing month. You benefit from these efficiencies because it helps keep our outsourced accounting services lower than the competition.

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 whole 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 heavy lifting to get everything transitioned! Our outsourced accounting and bookkeeping professionals can act like a member of your own team, catch your business up on a backlog of work, and move your data from other professionals, services or software.
