Hi, I’m Julie Longwell, the Alternative Accountant.
I have a passion for helping small business owner’s start-up or clean-up their accounting systems. As the Alternative Accountant, I bridge the gap between the bookkeeper and the CPA.
My interest in Accounting began when I was 9 years old. I helped my Aunt, an accountant, with filing and processing canceled checks during my summer vacations. Around age 12, I was helping my parents, who were entrepreneurs, with their administrative and accounting work. As a freshman in High School, I took my first Accounting class and the rest is history.
I have been blessed with a 25+ year career in Accounting. I have set-up many QuickBooks accounting systems, cleaned-up many accounting messes, trained many bookkeepers and advised many business owners and worked under numerous CPA’s. The various industries I have serviced include: Tool and Die, Automotive, Golf Courses, Restaurants, Retail, Salons, Non-Profit, Home Building, Farming, Commercial Real Estate, Property Management, Tech Services, Medical, Screen Printing, Photography, Real Estate, Community Associations, Insurance and Auditing.
In addition to start-up and clean-up accounting services, I can provide monthly outsourced bookkeeping and/or Controller support, month end close and financial reports, year-end catch up and CPA reporting, QuickBooks training, job cost/cash flow management and various other accounting projects.
Supporting, training and encouraging you and your staff is why I love what I do! I am a QuickBooks ProAdvisor for Desktop and the new QuickBooks Online platforms respectively. I offer reasonable rates and I work directly with your CPA to provide the most complete and accurate accounting reports.
I look forward to helping you with your accounting needs. Please contact me by phone or email to set up your free, 1 hour consultation.
