Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say

Our company has been using My Seattle Bookkeeper for several years and have been extremely pleased with the professionalism and thoroughness that Vanessa and ‘the crew’ provide. Taxes, quarterly reports, and the like are filed on time and are invariably accurate and correct. Payroll and invoicing have also been dealt with in an efficient and expedient manner, making my job of helping to run my company a lot easier.

~ Glenn Withey, Owner Withey Price Landscaping and Design

My Seattle Bookkeeper took the time to carefully review and understand our art consulting company’s unique needs in terms of financial reporting and did an outstanding job setting up payroll and tax payments. Senior staff anticipated potential federal, state and city reporting needs before we knew they existed. For nearly a decade, we have had complete confidence in the accuracy and reliability of Vanessa and her team!

~ Erin Weible & Rina Luzius, Managing Principals, The Lumiere Group

We have used Vanessa and her firm My Seattle Bookkeeper for many years and have greatly valued their service over this time. They have saved us a great deal of time and stress in taking over handling our books, accomplishing all our needed tasks from balancing the accounts to payroll. They have been immensely helpful in taking on extra assignments such as handling paperwork for our PPP loan, assistance with our yearly TPA 401k filing, unclaimed property, etc. I highly recommend this firm to anyone looking to have their bookkeeping needs handled accurately and promptly.

~ Ben Fisher, Owner NE Vet
