is raising their prices!

by | Feb 20, 2019 | Blog | 0 comments

’s arch nemesis, , is raising prices across the board. That isn’t even the worst part, as will be offering “live” bookkeeping as an add-on service for their QBO subscribers. That announcement means that will now be competing directly with a large part of their reseller network, also known as “Pro-Advisors”. Life is going to be getting real tough for the “Pro-Advisors” when they have to distinguish themselves from the sponsored robots and live chat bookkeeping. However, if ’s live bookkeepers are anything like their customer support, the future looks good for the rest of us! Xero to the rescue, once again…

If you are a QBO hostage user or worse – QuickBooks Desktop – and have ever wondered if there is a better way forward, the answer is a resounding yes! Xero is the complete opposite of QBO, competent, easy to use, connected, and a true cloud platform. There was never a “ desktop” program that had to be adapted into the cloud, which explains why is a much better native cloud experience. Below are some links about ’s announcement, for casual reading or if you are looking for a sleep aid with virtually no side effects.

This firm is absolutely the best that I've dealt with when it comes to CPAs and financial advice. I'd gone to another CPA in the area for help with my small business during tax time, they stopped communicating and I was left with important documentation not filed and a lot of anxiety around what to do. My appointment with Justin was set up quickly and I was in within a couple days to sit down with him. When you first meet him, you get the impression that he's incredibly intelligent and knows what he's talking about. He took the time to guide me through each and every step that I needed to take to move forward and actually ended up saving me money. I am so grateful to him for his knowledge and professionalism. Total life saver! If you're a small business owner, you should not be taking your time, money or business anywhere else but GP CPA and their crew 🙂read more

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
