Our Clients


This is a private matter. We are in a unique position and revealing our client names would violate our rules and ethics, and is in direct opposition to our philosophy.  However, our client retention rate is significant - we believe it to be over 90% - unheard of in our industry.  When you take care of your clients, they take care of you.  Many have become good friends. We can only provide you with quotes and first names, with one exception.

“I have the highest regard for the professionalism of Gail and all of the staff at Payroll and Bookkeeping. I have been associated with them for three years, and in that time, they have always been punctual and professional with all payroll, bookkeeping, and other services. I feel that they make processes run extremely efficiently because they have truly partnered with businesses in order to keep us on track all the time. The personal and courteous service, the prompt answers to any and all questions, careful attention to detail, up-to-the-minute knowledge of current tax laws, and wonderful advice have all been factors which have contributed to the continued success. I highly recommend Payroll and Bookkeeping. - Angel Whitehead, President/CEO - Centergy, Inc. - Friend and client - 5 years.

"You have a very profitable business model right now… I think the decision revolves around:  1) you and Gail wanting to be in Rapids and how does that all work .. 2) the balance between ending your career inside a firm vs simply milking the cash out of your profitable business for as many years as you wish given you intend to work until you are 80 anyway.  Its that simple really.  Great options for you and Gail personally ..You two have already ran your race and succeeded professionally." - Morgan, Partner at large CPA firm - Friend and Advisor - 8 years.
