See what our clients are saying about working with us.
We feel lucky to have connected with so many amazing small business owners over the years.
Kara and her team have been a great asset to us as our business has grown over the last few years. Since we adopted Quickbooks, our bookkeeping requirements are getting larger and more complicated, Kara is a good source for information and a great backstop to help us tie up all the loose ends when we close our books at year end. I would highly recommend In The Books to any growing small businesses requiring additional assistance for their bookkeeping needs.Tony TomoryPEFFERLAW CREEK FARMS
Kara and her team have been supporting my business' bookkeeping, payroll, AP/AR and tax preparations for over 3 years. She supports the success of my business in so many ways, but most importantly, I trust her completely to take care of my accounting needs so I can focus on growing my business. ITB is competent, responsive, and reliable - bringing indispensable value to any organization.Biying MiaoHOT POP FACTORY
There are no words to accurately describe just how invaluable Kara and the team at In the Books has been to the success of our business. They help keep our business on track, seamlessly juggling bank reconciliations, source deductions, HST filings and payroll for our company, all the while keeping a keen eye on our finances and ensuring nothing falls through the cracks. We would be lost without them!Steff ConoverCORE EVENT STAFF
QBO is not intuitive to use if you don't have a bookkeeping or accounting background and I get flustered easily if I'm trying to use a system but don't understand how to do it. Without someone to guide you, it's really not clear what you should be doing. In the Books saved me from making mistakes and from many hours of frustration and confusion in switching from Freshbooks to QBO. Thanks to the training provided as part of the service, I learned how to update and maintain my bookkeeping (including how to let the system handle my USD transactions and convert them properly into CAD) and can now do my bookkeeping myself without much trouble at all. With every interaction we had, I felt In the Books had my best interests at heart and that I could trust them even though we're in different provinces and we've never been able to meet in person. I especially appreciated how patient and helpful they were when I had follow-up questions about how to handle different transactions that I don't deal with very much (e.g. giving or receiving refunds). I feel confident that things are handled properly as I wrap up the year's books and hand things over the accountant for tax time.Meg CumbyMEG CUMBY CONSULTING
Kara and her team at In the Books have done an excellent job managing my books each year since 2016. Kara ensures I clearly understand the process and is helpful when addressing my questions along the way. She sets clear expectations of the timelines and information needed to complete the work. She has strong expertise, is a pleasure to work with and works well with my accountant to ensure I am compliant with CRA requirements.Monette GreenwaySPIRENORTH CONSULTING
