When It Comes To Bookkeeping, Do You Say,
"Please Don’t Make Me Do It!"

I know I’ve done my job when the
lines of worry leave your face.

We can do it faster than you can worry about it.
You can keep up to date and on top of your business by having your bookkeeping done weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually at your place or ours.

This is what we do.  We are fast and accurate.  We provide you with the information you need to run your business profitably and more efficiently.  We understand small business so we know what you need.

If you prefer, we will bill you a set monthly rate that covers all your work.  No more bills when you call for information.  We meet you on a regular basis to review your financial statements and see how you are doing.

You Can Do It.  And we'll help.
We can help train you or your staff (wife/husband) do your bookkeeping accurately and efficiently.

Individualized training is at your place or ours.  You learn the specifics of the program that apply to you as you work on your bookkeeping.  I am a Certified Quick Books ProAdvisor and I can show you tips and shortcuts to cut your bookkeeping time.

We can set up your books properly with accurate initial entries that reflect the start of your business.  We will set up your forms such as invoices and receipts the way you want them to look using the customizable templates to maximize your ability to take advantage of the marketing opportunities.  We will design the procedures to be streamlined and to give you the information you need to manage your business.

We will design a paper procedure that is easy to use and stops leaks of information.  We will design forms and procedures everyone can use to ensure all the information you need is available.  I will outline a framework to help you make decisions in the future.

We will discuss your goals and the benchmarks you will use to monitor your progress towards them.

Call Us Crazy, But We Think It’s Fun!
You can drop off your boxes and bags of receipts and we’ll bring you up to date.

Bags and boxes of receipts are just big puzzles for us.  With decades of experience we are able to organize your information, find the gaps and often we can fill them in or let you know what other information is required.  We can find money owed to you and let you know where you stand with your business. 

As we fast forward through your business we see trends and opportunities unfold.

    "We are new clients and have found working with Frances for the first time, that she very professionally handles issues and follows up and follows through.  Frances turned our tax nightmare into a "clear" and understandable outcome being able to communicate easily with her related to questions and answers with quick responses. We look forward to doing business next tax year!" - Heather Diane Parrish and Eric R. Parrish, The Wylde Heather Bed & Breakfast and Pride & Joy Lawn and Garden Care

    "We totally believe in doing what you do well and hiring professionals to cover the areas of your business that they do well.  Fran Schagen of Crystal Clear Bookkeeping is the professional we trust for all our bookkeeping needs. Leaving this part of our business to her gives us the time to focus on what we do well - helping people and organizations maximize their life potential.  We highly recommend this company for efficiency, dedication and trust. Thanks Fran, you're the best!!" - Ronda Degaust and Bob Clarke, Life Potential Developments

    "I am pleased to have been asked to write a letter of reference for Frances Schagen. She has been our bookkeeper for our cattle business for a few years now. Frances has many qualities we require in our business; she is honest, a self-starter, able to deal with company personnel in an efficient manner, and is capable of organizing and managing our almost unmanageable paper trail. She has an extensive business background so has been a real asset in handling our GST returns, payroll account, income tax files, banking business, etc. Additionally, Frances has a pleasing manner and can easily handle the frustrating bureaucratic requirements necessary in doing business these days. Frances is computer literate; she is very familiar with the internet and can get any information needed quickly.  In closing, we can highly recommend Frances as an asset to any enterprise needing a qualified person who can work independently and bring a positive atmosphere to your business. Sincerely," Mrs. Dianne Oulton, Charvale Charolais Ranch
