"I just have to tell you how great it was to go into my office yesterday and have space on my desk to work! Nancy has done a fantastic job so far of sorting my mountain of paperwork into something more then manageable. The instant stress relief just seeing the progress has reinforced the fact that I made the right decision to ask Cheques and Balances to help me with my books. You've also been a great motivator and supporter of me as a business owner, even going as far to purchase me a book to help me build my business. Thanks again!" Jaime Pachal

"In my former life as a banker I learned the value of having a good accountant. Small business has a very high failure rate and I have seen many businesses fail because of under capitalization and improper bookkeeping practices. Bill has all of the credentials, and more importantly the knowledge you need to keep your business running. If you want straight answers about your business, and to keep out of trouble with the government, I would recommend Bill Stafford and Cheques and Balances Bookkeeping for guidance and advice."
