In July of 2011, I decided to Upgrade our bookkeeping system and utilized the services of Kimberly Applewhite. For years, we had been keeping our books the old fashioned way. Checks were written by hand by an assistant which would take about four to six hours every week. A ledger was kept to keep track of money coming in and out. And an old fashioned bookkeeper was paid to come every week to record all distributions and payments received. Although this system worked, it was time consuming and inefficient.
In a short time, Kimberly was able to get me fully automated. Now, bills are entered into the software and computer checks are produced. As a result, creating a weeks worth of checks now takes about twenty minutes instead of half a day and does not require the use of an assistant. Checks received are also entered into the program and at any given time I can see the corporate account balance.
Another area that was addresses was payroll. For years, we did payroll in house. Once again, this was a time consuming process and quite frustrating. Now, I merely email the employee hours on Friday and payroll checks are received on the following Tuesday. Also, instead of going to the bank and transferring funds from our regular account into the payroll account every pay period. Kimberly is able to do it for me from her office and forward the information to me.
Applewhite Accounting Inc. has been a great help over the last year in getting me organized and more efficient. Also, My bookkeeping fees are considerably less than I was paying.
I have been a customer of Applewhite Accounting Inc. for over 5 years now. Since day 1, I’ve been very impressed with the services. Kimberly possesses strong accounting & bookkeeping skills, honest coaching and an incredible ability to execute and get the job done. I would “highly recommend” Kimberly for all your business, accounting and tax needs.

Tax time is a breeze with Applewhite Accounting Inc. I’ve worked with Kim for five consecutive years (through years of starting a freelance business and also working as a full-time employee). She is very thorough and clear in how she communicates. She also cares about you and your personal finances, giving great advice each step of the way. This year, I bought a home and will get married, and I trust my husband and I will be looking to Kim for business services for many years to come.
