Monthly Bookkeeping

Our number one goal for each client is to provide up-to-date and accurate financials at the end of each month.  We know how important it is to stay on top of your numbers so you can quickly make adjustments if needed or simply stay on top of trends.  And as we approach the end of the calendar year (or fiscal year), knowing your numbers for tax planning purposes is imperative so you can limit any surprises on  April 15th.

Organize Your Financials

At Bloom Bookkeeping, we understand just how easy it is to keep your financials organized, and we’re here to help. Whether that involves a QuickBooks review, cleanup or catch up, we can assure you that your financials will be in good hands. 

Quickbooks 101

When starting a business, it is essential to build a solid accounting foundation to stay organized, increase efficiency, obtain financing, control expenses and know your bottom line so you can quickly make adjustments if needed.  Sometime though, hiring a bookkeeper isn’t in your budget when you are starting up, and that’s ok! We’ll work with you to setup your accounting systems and customize your chart of accounts, then train you how to do it yourself. 

What Our Clients Say

At Bloom Bookkeeping, we have had the privilege to work with amazing clients throughout Columbia. Here’s what a few had to say about our service:

“I have been delighted with Lara’s management of our books: for the first time since we opened our doors, I finally have a really good idea of how we are doing financially (for a change).  My books are clean, neat, organized, and CORRECT. Lara is a pleasure to work with, and no matter what (random) question I may have for her, if she doesn’t know the answer she knows where to look. She is always 100% on top of the books. I’m very excited about our continued collaboration going forward.” 

-Matthew Concannon, Concannon Plastic Surgery

As a startup business, Lara has helped me tremendously.  I met her right around the time I was getting my numbers together to go to a bank…and I felt like I had no idea what I was doing!  She met with my husband and I, went over the projected numbers, found some expenses I needed to add, and then went to the bank with me.  I felt so much more comfortable with her there helping answer questions. Numbers are intimidating…Lara is not!” 

Amanda Quick, The Hatchery

“Before having Lara take over bookkeeping, financials were usurping a quarter of my time, preventing me from doing what I truly love which is to simply find and promote talented artists. Lara is smart, dependable, thorough, and offers seasoned counsel that has help keep all our books in order so that I’m able to focus on that wonderful discovery of new artists, their work, and their stories.”

-Joel Sager, Sager Braudis Gallery

“As an entrepreneur and business owner it’s easy to lose track of bookkeeping responsibilities. Lara makes the process and communication simple and stress free.  I know that Lara and her team will have everything taken care of for me when our business financials are needed.  Lara is reliable and I can always count on her to get back to me as soon as possible. She makes my life as a business owner so much easier, and there’s no one else I’d rather have in charge of my business financials!” 

-Mikel Fields, Cracked Up Mobile

“The “holy spirit” of accounting gods guided me to Lara Pieper of Bloom Bookkeeping. In less than two weeks Lara produced what my previous accountant couldn’t in four months. Lara’s turnaround, comptency, efficiency, knowledge and follow through reassured me that phenomenal bookkeepers do exist! Lara is quick to respond and communicates in a manner I understand. I high recommend Lara and feel blessed to have found her!” 

-Susan Lueders, Dermistique
