Siegel & Associates, provides both onsite and remote bookkeeping services utilizing QuickBooks software.
For onsite services we provide a bookkeeper to go onsite on a regular basis to perform bookkeeping tasks that have been agreed upon. This bookkeeper will remain the same. The scheduled visits can range from once a month to once a week depending on the needs of the client.
In a remote model, source documents such as vendor bills, bank statements, credit card statements, invoices, deposit slips are emailed or faxed to the office to be processed remotely. We can either send back financial statements and a list of open bills, or utilizing our Bill.com service we can make the payable function truly remote with online authorization for payment of vendor bills.

understand how to interpret and utilize the financial
information we provide. Our consultations are already included
in our price, so feel free to call us whenever you have a
question or concern.
