Organize

We help your business organize bookkeeping and administrative processes for an effortless back office, so you can spend more time providing what your customers want at the level of service they deserve.

Record

We provide customized accounting and tax preparation solutions, all tailored to your business needs. We offer full accounting services; we can train you to do it all; or you can choose something in-between.

Understand

We want you to make the best business decisions using the most current information possible. But if you don’t understand how the numbers on your Financial Statements or Income Tax Returns affect your business, you could be flying blind.

 Laura L Canales CPA MPA

Hello, my name is Laura L Canales, CPA MPA, and have worked as an accounting professional for over 25 years in financial accounting and tax preparation. I lead small, family-owned businesses from formation through profitability to succession planning and retirement. Utilizing my expertise and advice businesses can continually update their administrative systems, processes and technologies to improve their operating profitability and administrative efficiency.
Although I worked with the University of Florida’s Small Business Development Center early in her career, and more recently with the Boise Campus of the University of Phoenix, my heart is in Community Education. I am one of Boise’s recognized business instructors, teaching classes geared toward small businesses and start-ups. I also provides one-on-one and group training in various accounting and business software systems, like Quickbooks® and Microsoft® Office.
