About

We are a group of professionals that came together to fix a problem that many business people are aware of but don’t do much about. The fact that many business decisions are made without accurate information. Often books are updated once a month or not even then, and decisions need to be made on estimates and gut feel.

This is the WORST service. The work is all done in India. They held my invoices for two minths and I had to borrow money to pay my staff. They temporarily hurt my business. Get a kocal person. They have salespeople in L.A. but the work is done in India. I will be suing them soon, but I have hired a bookkeeper and new accountant to clean up the mess. Don't believe the other reviews. I have a small business with high profile clients. Unless, they happen to be great with balancing a checkbook for an individual, I would not recommend. Eventually, they returned all my money, but the damage was done. More...

Powered Books is the ultimate stress reliever! For less than the price of a part-time bookkeeper, they manage my accounts, make valuable suggestions, and keep everything up-to-date. I have a personal account rep who is always on top of things, her support staff is too, and they provide easy-to-use tools to make distance communication possible. I'm so happy with this choice! I wish we'd done it sooner. More...

Powered books is a life saver! I had to recreate my books due to a former book keeper not keeping track of things. Nova and her staff were wonderful, professional, and timely.It took some time on the start up with getting them the information they needed, but they were patient and wonderful and extremely helpful during the transition period. I refer them to EVERYONE! More...

I moved my bookkeeping from 1800accountant to PoweredBooks in early 2017. I am VERY happy with PoweredBooks, and have never had a bookkeeper this easy to work with. Jordan who handled the sales and contract phase was very pleasant and accommodating.But the real superstar is Rina. She has such a great attitude, explains things slowly and clearly (several times when I need it), and never balks at special requests. I sent her a humongous list of things I wanted to be changed / done a different way, and was worried she would object to some of the more minor nit-picks I had.......but instead, she wasn't even phased, said the list was nothing compared to some others she received, and said she would take care of it as quickly as possible (which they did). Rina is very understanding, and has a way of explaining things that really puts me at ease. The CPA who does my taxes had some change requests too for how to document assets VS expenses, and she had that done in no time.I strongly recommend poweredbooks, and especially Rina! A++ More...

The team jumped right-in and started generating results with almost no orientation. As a QuickBooks ProAdvisor, I feel like I have a team of experts in my back office, allowing me to focus on client relations, while the team at PoweredBooks has my back!

Switched over to them after some difficulties with a prior bookkeeping firm. Has been a very positive change. The team is very professional, knowledgeable, efficient and easy to work with. The best part is how responsive and thorough the team has been. It is refreshing to not have to follow up multiple times to get a response from a professional service provider. Highly recommended.

After our long-term bookkeeper retired, I needed someone quickly to keep us up to speed with our accounting. Without question, Powered Books was outstanding. They responded to every question and took the time to explain how to make a seamless transition. We had been using a desktop version of QuickBooks, but they helped with the transition to the online version. When I emailed questions to them, they quickly responded, and they also promptly returned phone calls. I recommend Powered Books without reservation! They're great! More...

Every person I personally dealt with at this company is genuinely great to work with. My account manager, Rina is outstanding. Whenever I need something, it's never a no...it's almost always, "no problem". Financials are stressful enough and PowerBooks helps ease the pain.They really want to help. I intend to work with them in the future. More...

I did not know how to start up payroll and it was a mess because I tried to do it on my own. Raha and Rina are amazing! They took their time and walked me through it; they also made all the phone calls to Intuit and fixed all my mistakes. Lifesavers! They are also quite knowledgable with Quickbooks and bookkeeping in general. I recommend them to anyone! Super affordable too! More...

I've had a really positive experience with PoweredBooks. As my business has grown, bookkeeping has become increasingly important - and increasingly difficult to keep up-to-date. I looked around a a few different services and ended up going with PoweredBooks because they were responsive, well-priced, and flexible to adapt to the changing needs of my business. They have been thorough and communicative, and my books are actually up to date now. Highly recommend them to any other small business owners looking for bookkeeping assistance. More...

We are in the middle of transferring our books to them. Its been bumpy and their communication could be better at helping us go through a step-by-step explanation of the process. We have to initiate every conversation and we wish they would be more proactive in letting us know things that may need to be done. However, the staff has been very friendly and willing to take time to help us work through things when we do call with questions or problems. More...
