We'll Handle Your Books, So You Can Get Back to Business

Our Certified Bookkeepers are a unique service in the industry and a protection to our clients

Three entrepreneurs in McLean, Virginia, have purchased Bookkeeping Express, a national provider of bookkeeping services, and plan a major expansion, which includes launching a national franchising system in June.

"Bookkeeping Express plans to revolutionize bookkeeping in America!" says CEO Greg Jones. "In a business world where payroll is dominated by national companies like Paychex and tax preparation is synonymous with H & R Block, we see our company becoming the recognized provider for business bookkeeping services. Our franchise will provide businesses throughout the U.S. a reliable, affordable source for excellent bookkeeping services. We will focus on in-house financials, operating as an authorized QuickBooks affiliate," says Jones. "We will charge by the transaction so that our customers can have a complete understanding of what work has been completed and at what price. "We truly strive to be 'The Growth Business Partner' of our clients by using genrally accepted bookkeeping standards, comprehensive reports and special products like easy-to-understand 'dashboards.'"    

Bookkeeping Express offers the following services for businesses:

  •     Setting up Chart of Accounts and General Ledger
  •     Monthly data entry
  •     Processing and managing Accounts Payable and Account Receivable
  •     Producing regular monthly reports
  •     Tax reporting

Bookkeeping Express employs the services of Certified Bookkeepers. "Our Certified Bookkeepers are a unique service in the industry and a protection to our clients," explains COO Robert Stocker. "Often when you hire a bookkeeper, you have no idea of their training, certification or integrity. Every Bookkeeping Express bookkeeper will undergo a thorough training program, will be certified, will be insured, and will have oversight of their bookkeeping activities through Bookkeeping Express."

The new owners of Bookkeeping Express include Jones, an entrepreneur in the franchising field, who also owns the development rights for Five Guys Burgers & Fries in central Florida; Merritt Green, the Founder and Managing Partner of General Counsel, P.C.; and Stocker, a management consultant. The group purchased the rights to Bookkeeping Express in 2007 and moved its headquarters to McLean. They expect to start selling franchises by June 1, 2008.

Currently, we is offering services through locations in McLean and Reston, Virginia. Additional locations in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. are planned to be opened soon.
