From time to time our clients and people ask us for the names of professionals in Arizona who we recommend for business and personal services.  If you need a professional of a type listed here, please contact the professional and tell him or her that Richard Keyt recommended you.  I encourage you to interview several professionals and select the person who you feel best suits your needs.  I have listed people in no particular order.  The fact that somebody is listed ahead of somebody else does not mean that I prefer the higher listed person over somebody lower on the list.

KEYTLaw, LLC, has used CPA for Hire since early 2007 to keep our QuickBooks in order.  Although Joy is a CPA,  she and her company do not provide CPA or tax preparation services.  CPA for Hire is a QuickBooks consulting firm.  They can do some or all of your actual QuickBooks data entry either remotely over the internet or by sending a bookkeeper to your office.  Once a month a CPA for Hire bookkeeper comes to our office and reviews our data entry for the prior month and corrects any data entry errors we have made.  If we are not sure how to handle a bookkeeping item we call our CPA for Hire bookkeeper for the answer.  Once a year in January Joy Hollenberg Jaske, CPA reviews our QuickBooks accounts for the year that just ended.  Joy makes any necessary adjustments to our QuickBooks accounts (debits & credits & CPA stuff) and gets our accounts ready to give to our CPA.  We then email the accountant’s file to our CPA who prepares our tax return.  I highly recommend QuickBooks for small business accounting and CPA for Hire as your part-time professional bookkeeper.
