Bookkeeping services use a combination of factors to estimate the time and complexity your books will take to maintain, which is reflected in their pricing packages. When searching for bookkeeping packages, there are three primary factors that impact pricing:

1. Number of Accounts

How many bank accounts and credit cards do you use? This also includes payment processing accounts like Stripe or Square.

2. Number of Transactions

How many bank and credit card transactions does your business usually have in a given month?

3. Monthly Expenses

What are your average monthly expenses? How much does your business usually spend on inventory, services, and payments?

Every business requires some form of bookkeeping to keep track of transactions and safeguard cash flow. Accurate bookkeeping is critical to monitor your business expenses and streamline taxes. No matter your budget, you can find a bookkeeping pricing package that works for your business.
