No problem is too big or too messy. RMOHC cut its accounting teeth on “disaster” accounting situations. We also remove any shame and fear you might feel about the mess because getting it corrected will provide you peace of mind.

  • Are you behind in reconciling your bank statements by 6 months?  …4 years?
  • Did you have someone do 2+ years of bookkeeping only to realize they did not know what they were doing?
  • Do you know where you left your accounting system since the last time you used it?
  • Do you know your password?
  • Do you have a shoebox of receipts and check stubs?
  • You…
    • don’t know why they are a mess;
    • do know they are a mess;
    • don’t know how to fix them;
    • don’t want to do it, or can’t.
  • You are afraid to pay bills because you don’t how much money really have.

Let’s get your finances cleaned up, organized and get you empowered to focus on your business with the peace of mind that comes from what we have done for you! It always comes back to your peace of mind.

  • It is too much or too confusing for you.
  • Your time is better spent building your business.
  • You understand an outside accountant is cheaper than a full-time bookkeeper.
  • You understand that it is too expensive to have a CPA do accounting (secret: CPAs don’t want to do accounting, they like doing taxes).
Consider your time and the value of your time:

Real client:
You are doing your bookkeeping instead of removing tumors in the operating room.

Real client:
You are doing your bookkeeping instead of litigating in court.

Basically, it is when you are not carrying out the mission of your business because you are spending your time doing bookkeeping.

Question 1:
Could time be better spent with clients, building the company, etc.?

Question 2:
Are the hours spent doing your own bookkeeping costing you more money than simply hiring and outside accountant/CFO?

  • We send an Engagement Agreement that spells out the scope of services we will provide.
  • All services are prepaid in entirety, or by retainer if the scope is large.
  • All document exchange is done through DropBox. RMOHC creates a unique client folder through which it is safe to pass documents with personal and sensitive information on it.
  • We communicate with you on a regular basis to ensure we are providing what you need and want.

We train clients on subjects ranging from basic business, to basic accounting, to special government contracting issues. We are constantly updating, improving, and creating new presentations to support our clients. These are done on a one-on-one basis.

We have training classes to support small business. RMOHC trains using positive, supportive methods. We remove fear and shame and replace it with confidence and pride. We also teach you that a mistake can be funny and not a human failure. We all make mistakes. In Quickbooks, mistakes can be corrected and they can become learning opportunities instead of disasters. Our training is focused on learning to not make mistakes.

RMOHC has a policy of keeping itself trained through certifications class, and other classes germane to its services as well.

Our services are to serve you and keep you profitable, legal, and compliant.

The more you understand fundamental accounting (debits & credits, 5 account groups, 2 major statements), the better you will be at both using QB and understanding the reports. You can get this online, from books, take courses at your local community college, and from RMOHC courses that they customize to you.

Without seeing your books, there is no fair way to you or to RMOHC to say how much to charge.  It is not done on an hourly basis.

This is why meeting for an initial consultation is vital.

To use QuickBooks:
You need to let us train you in the basics of QuickBooks.  Basically, you will be making deposits, writing checks, and providing QuickBooks and RMOHC access to your financial information to do the work for you.

To understand the numbers:
You only need a willingness to be taught what the numbers mean.  RMOHC will walk you through the numbers and explain what they mean in a way that is easy to understand (in everyday English, not Accounting-ese).

If you don’t remember anything from one meeting to the next, we will gladly take you through everything again…and again…and again.  Teaching is part of our mission!


If you do not know what you are doing, please don’t try to do it on your own. 

The cost to clean up one client’s books from her guessing far exceeded the cost of 3-5 months of services.  It was costly, painful, and ugly!
