Bookkeeping & Accounting Solutions
In the Cloud
For Professionals, Start-ups, and Small to Mid-Size Businesses
Cloud Accounting experts by trade, humanitarians at heart; we understand the challenges of running a business while balancing a fulfilling life outside of work.  That’s why we created Leverage, a boutique full-service cloud accounting firm for professionals, startups, and small to mid-size businesses.  Our goal as a company is simple– to enrich your life with the financial understanding and extra peace of mind you need to live your life to the fullest.

Our virtual accounting and bookkeeping services are a reliable, high-quality alternative to in-house resources for bookkeeping, financial reporting, and business progress analysis. Our integrated accounting system is second to none, seamlessly weaving together multiple cloud-based technologies that save you time and money while providing the information you need to confidently manage your business.

As a small, boutique accounting firm, we take the time to get to know your business intimately so that we truly become a valuable and contributing part of your team.  For us, bookkeeping is more than just entering payments and bills into accounting software as our end goal– we view our work as a set of dynamic tools that can be leveraged to help your business succeed and to accomplish your long term goals.

When we started Leverage, our vision was to align our expertise in cloud accounting with our commitment to living a life of service.  The result has been inspiring, as we’ve not only developed into a respected accounting firm, but one that can also openly claim that we genuinely care about our clients.  The way we see it is if you are thriving and at peace with your business, this will be paid forward to the people around you. What better outcome is
there?

So, welcome to Leverage.  Large firm capability.  Boutique firm service.  In the cloud.

“Having Leverage Cloud Accounting on my team gives me huge peace of mind. They are incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, and responsive.”

“As an entrepreneur, there are lots of demands on my time; the last thing I need to do is worry about whether or not my books are in order. Working with Leverage has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my company. I am confident that they are on top of all of our accounting so I can focus on what I do best. I would happily recommend Leverage to anyone looking for accounting and bookkeeping services.”

Edward West, CEO

“Leverage reorganized our accounting system to better fit the needs of our manufacturing operations. They understood what we needed, figured out how to make it happen, and organized it perfectly. Despite large changes to our product lines and volumes since then, we have not had to make any significant changes to our accounting system. I was impressed with Leverage’s accounting knowledge, organizational skills, and meticulousness, and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs accounting assistance.”

FAQ
You might have questions before you switch your company over to our online bookkeeping services. Feel free to contact us and ask as many questions as you like.  We're happy to help.
Who do you work with?

The bulk of our clients are professionals, start-ups, and small to mid-sized businesses.

What software do you use?

We use QuickBooks as our primary financial platform as well as a host of other tools like bill.com, T-Sheets, and Gusto to automate your company.

How do we get our documents to Leverage?

There are several ways to get documentation to us.  We use Dropbox, Google Drive as well as Tallie to make things easy for you.

How long does it take to set up accounting services online?

Depending on the condition of your books, it could take as little as a few days to set up your bookkeeping services online. If your books are not current, then we will need to organize them before we can proceed with the day-to-day work.

Why should I use virtual bookkeeping services over an in-house accountant?

• We are usually at least 50% of the cost of in-house staff.
• We have up-to-date tools and software that make us more efficient.
• With the use of tools like Skype, you will feel like we're an intimate part of your team.

Is there a contract?

Most of our clients do not enter into a contract with us. If your books are behind, we may propose one to ensure that the relationship runs smoothly.  Almost all of our clients are on a month-to-month plan with us.

Are there setup fees?

If your books are current, there’s no fee. If they’re messy when you start with Leverage's online bookkeeping services, we can help you update them for a one-time fee. We’ve helped a lot of businesses clean up their books and will do the same for you.

How do I access my accounting software?

You will have access to your financial platform from the internet.
