I am Sarah Bourne. I have been a full time bookkeeper since 2014, offering medium sized businesses a varied level of bookkeeping services and guidance, depending on the owner’s needs, their capabilities and their time constraints. The one thing I know is that all of my clients are grateful for having me help them; giving them the time, tools and the peace of mind to run their businesses more efficiently.
A client recently told me that I was worth my weight in gold. That’ll be about $3.5m!
I spent 17 years in Whistler before moving to the Kootenays in 2017. Most of my clients didn’t want to lose me so we worked out ways for them to have their bookkeeping done remotely. I’ve since taken on new clients on this remote basis, some of whom I still haven’t met! For local clients I either collect their paperwork from them or for a couple, I work at their offices. To be honest, it’s more efficient for me to collect paperwork and do their bookkeeping in my home office.
The types of businesses I do the bookkeeping for includes:
- Construction and related services
- Retail – physical and on-line
- Tourism service operators
- Business and commerce
Having this wide range helps me come up with bookkeeping procedures that best fit your business type.
