Bookkeeping has become a huge source of income for our family over the last couple of years through offering record keeping and Quickbooks services in an accounting format suitable for tax purposes.
Cannon Bookkeeping started out as a small side hustle meant to supplement our income for more travels, dreams and our growing family over the last few years.
We saw a need in our community for small business support through bookkeeping and Quickbooks services which were offered at local community college night classes.
This was something we knew we had a strong passion and skill set for that we thought might be useful to businesses around us.
Next thing we knew we were expanding!
Never would we have ever guessed this would grow into such a great need for small businesses!
When we first began offering bookkeeping, we truly wanted to help small businesses save time and build their businesses without having to worry about what the accountant and the payroll powers that be were constantly hounding them about.
In a nutshell, we wanted to save time and stress for our clients using the skills we gained while working for an amazing accounting firm owned by the best boss in the entire world.
Seriously, we will never find another like him!
He taught us all of his accounting ways and wanted us to make clients feel like family because they were. They were there for him as much as he was there for them through grief, growing families, hospital visits and milestones in their businesses as well as their family.
He was more than an accountant and we too wanted to become more than bookkeepers to our clients which is why we offer many services for a minimal fee.
Clients appreciated this family dynamic beyond measure and we enjoy getting to grow our family through bookkeeping clients who mesh into our family which shows as our bookkeeping business grows and grows.
We too are small business owners who happen to have a skill set that drives home the idea of saving your accountant and your business time through continuous organized record keeping.
Our clients trust us to help them save money by providing outsourced bookkeeping instead of hiring in house bookkeeping staff. Hiring outsourced bookkeepers, such as Cannon Bookkeping, saves the business owner time via using our remote access services, By logging into our client’s computers safely (with their permission of course and not interrupting regular business hours), we save them time and money not needing to cover someone who isn’t present or worrying about what has to be done bookkeeping wise. Think of us as the fairy godmother to your business!
We take care of the headache of paperwork while you direct attention to things that help your business grow and make more money as you save it!
If you factor paying someone $15 an hour to spend 8 hours a day managing the day in and day out of your bookkeeping needs (i.e. payroll, Quickbooks inputting, reconciling accounts, invoicing, etc.) it may seem like a minuscule amount because your focus is on that $15 an hour versus the price your bookkeeper gave you for a month of work.
Let’s say your bookkeeper quotes you around $500-$1500 per month-which sounds like a lot-but what if it was less than your employee cost you?
What happens when you spend $15 an hour on your employee? You add up to about $2400 a month paid to that employee.
The buck doesn’t stop there though!
Now, you have to factor unemployment rates, benefits like insurance and paid time off, sick leave, appointments for kids, paid training, and field trips, etc.
Essentially, you’re throwing money at this person to be at a desk in your office day in and out doing the same if not less than the amount of work an outsourced bookkeeper could do without interruption in less time.
This saves your business time, money and effort in the long run!
Now, your in house staff can focus on the phone calls, greeting customers and providing the best customer care while your bookkeeper keeps the hive running behind the scenes and you…well…you get to do what you do best.
Hiring an outsourced bookkeeping service helps you to eliminate the need of having someone in office requiring much more attention and time at the expense of your business.

Bookkeeping software and bookkeeping paperwork does not have to be trivial nor does it have to take you away from what you’re passionate about…making money!
We’ve enjoyed helping many small business owners make sense of the tax prep world through our bookkeeping services. Doing so helps our family of small businesses grow their money making businesses into much more and allows them more time with their own families.
We can offer all services remotely via securely logging into your system through ours to keep track of all business activity on a monthly, weekly and daily basis. If this is not a suitable option for you, services can be offered in house as well.
