What People Are Saying About Solid Chops Accounting
I hired Brian nearly 10 years ago as a bookkeeper after several years of struggling to grow my business. Within the first year it became clear that Brian was the missing component. He had a tremendous impact on organizing the business and providing the structure I needed to handle the increased workflow.
Brian is fast, efficient, reliable, professional and most importantly trustworthy. I have found his skill level in QuickBooks and Excel to be beyond proficient. His ability to deal with frustrating government websites and the like is invaluable. Over the years Brian has handled things like quarterly tax payments, payroll taxes, insurance issues of all sorts and debt collection, not to mention regular day to day business operations, all with only part time hours. Any small business would be lucky to have him.

As a small non profit with a limited operating budget, Brian has helped us build our financial management capacity. He helped us streamline our financial management system by helping us transition from Quickbooks to Xero, which is allowing us to more efficiently and effectively produce financial reports. He is incredibly knowledgeable of new technology that we’ve adopted to improve efficiencies with our timesheets and expense reports. Brian is a joy to work with and we wholeheartedly recommend his services to nonprofits looking for sound accounting, bookkeeping and financial management.
I Challenge Myself
We’ve worked with Brian since 2013, and he’s always gone the extra mile. After years of working through a fiscal sponsor, Brian has supported us to grow as a small NGO into a new independent administrative structure. Brian has made the complex accessible to non-accountants, and despite the moving ‘goalposts’ of NGO reality, Brian always delivers with humor and grace. Brian has helped us get the systems and policies in place to enable us to diversify our donor base and to strengthen our NGO structure. Specifically, Brian has worked with detailed attention to develop an easy to use accounting system, chart of accounts, reporting system, and the requisite policies so that we are accountable to our donors and can put our time into the work we love.
I am co-founder of two tech startups and have had the pleasure to work with Brian since 2012. Brian’s work has always been top-notch. He’s been able to anticipate changes that need to be made as my companies grow, and he’s always been very responsive and knowledgeable when I have questions that come up. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
