Why us?

Not all bookkeepers are equal. Be careful of these common pitfalls when looking to hire a professional bookkeeper in San Diego, Los Angeles or any other major city throughout USA…

f  Don’t hire an individual.

They are typically not as reliable or accountable. We’ve had too many business owners come to us saying their last bookkeeper hasn’t sent them anything in months, or that they took another job all of a sudden. Instead, hire a dedicated bookkeeping company for outsourcing your bookkeeping so you don’t have to worry or constantly be following up, especially if you are a small business.

#  Don’t hire a bookkeeper that bills hourly.

After all, how do you really know how much time they are spending on your account? To avoid bogus inflation, hire a company that bills based on a verifiable measurement. We charge our clients based on the number of transactions they have. Simple, predictable, and transparent.

d  Don’t hire a bookkeeping service that requires you to scan, mail, or take pictures of receipts.

You are busy enough running your business without needing more work to do. We don’t require you to send us receipts, since all of your transactions will be recorded on your bank and credit card statements.

r  Don’t hire a bookkeeper that doesn’t file your 1099s for you. 

This is the one tax filing that all professional bookkeepers should help you with, as it requires special reports directly from your books. Nobody, not even your CPA, can file your 1099s without those reports. We file 1099s for all our clients throughout the nation including San Diego and Los Angeles, CA.

w  Don’t hire a bookkeeper that requires you to be accessing QuickBooks (or any other software).

It’s the bookkeepers job, not yours, to learn, understand, and manage the software. In addition, you don’t want to have to pay for your own copy of the software. We keep our client’s files in QuickBooks, but when we send them their reports, they are in easy-to-read and familiar PDF and spreadsheet formats.

u  Don’t hire a bookkeeper that doesn’t even use QuickBooks.

It’s by far the industry standard bookkeeping software. So if you ever leave that bookkeeper, you want to make sure your data is in QuickBooks so that you have many more options when looking for a new bookkeeper. You guessed it… we keep our clients data in a QuickBooks file that is their property.

“Despite what Quickbooks wants you to believe, bookkeeping is not easy. It’s a burden every small business owner has to bear. We want to help them carry that burden.

– Jordan Merritt, Owner of  Merritt Bookkeeping

About Us

Merritt Bookkeeping was founded in 2009. Jordan Merritt was working as an accountant when his mom asked him for help with the bookkeeping for her small business. In helping her out he realized that most small business owners are going to be completely lost when it comes to doing their own bookkeeping. And they are not going to have the budget to hire someone full time.

That's when he decided to leave his job and focus on building a bookkeeping company that would offer an easy, affordable, and professional remote bookkeeping service to small businesses nationwide. Our current headquarters is San Diego, CA, although we work with small businesses all over the nation.
