Frequently Asked Questions

If I’m struggling to make ends meet each month, how can I afford this?

We are not an income generating center, but we are a cost saving center. The initial investment will more than pay off and in the long run you will end up saving money and time with professional oversight and having clean books to rely on to guide your business.

I’m so far behind I need this done right away, how fast will all this happen?

We understand that accounting is a moving target and getting started as soon as possible is paramount to relieving your immediate pain.  In order to get started we need your assistance so the sooner you make a decision to work with us, the sooner we can get started.

I need to get my taxes filed and am running my business with no idea what’s going on, can you fix this fast?

Again, we depend on your help in providing us what we need.  If we get everything requested in a timely manner, we will move as quickly as we can through Phase I.  The time will also depend on the amount of work required.  We will do our best to give you a reasonable time frame.  Also, if we feel it would be beneficial, we may start Phase II (monthly service) before we complete all of Phase I.

I’m so excited to get this moving forward but I need to offload all this on someone else, can you “do it all”?

Generally we can take over most of the accounting to free you up to do everything else involved in running your business.  However, once in a while, we need you to handle certain parts that only you can.  We’ll work with you to figure out what will be easiest for you.

I’ve been on QuickBooks desktop forever and am afraid to move to the cloud version,  plus why should I?

We hear this a lot, and we understand, if it ain’t broke, why fix it?  Well, the truth is that QuickBooks Online is a fantastic program that is easier to use once you get used to the different interface.  The functionality is virtually the same and it is constantly improving. 

Also, having software on your desktop means you have to update the software periodically, deal with crashes and other IT issues; on QBO, all that is handled for you. It’s also safer!  Intuit uses bank level security and everything is backed up keeping your data safer than having it on your desktop. 

Plus, QuickBooks online offers us the ability to efficiently work on your accounting file at any time from any location without interruptions to your daily business activities.

We’ve heard nightmare stories about other companies not being reliable or trustworthy, how do we know you’re not like them?  Also, ______________ (insert option - my sister, wife, friend, etc.) has always done our books so why shouldn’t we just continue to have her do them?

First, you’re looking here because you have a problem.  We specialize in fixing problems so we’re a great option.  We know there are other companies out there that you could go to but we assess whether or not we can help you and don’t oversell our services if we aren’t a good fit for you.

Second, having professional oversight will provide the necessary expertise, keeping these and other problems from occurring. 

We pride ourselves on what we call the Sherrington Difference.  See our About Page for the details on why we are a better choice.

Hi! I'm Sherry Herrington,

Growing up in an area where the main industry was small business, I learned that most small business owners are good at whatever it is that they started their business to do, whether that’s selling a product or providing a service. But most of them are not prepared to handle the financial side of the business.

That’s where we come in. Specializing in helping small businesses with managing their finances and guiding them with solid business consulting allows them to do what they love to do and to succeed.
