Why Lifeboat Accounting, PLLC?

We help small businesses and nonprofits stay afloat by offering accounting and Virtual CFO services so that they can wear less hats and focus on their businesses and missions. Whether our clients need just a lifesaver (a spare hand), a raft (cleanup, new systems, or training), or the whole boat (outsourced Virtual CFO services), we are here. We utilize technology to streamline your accounting while building the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients. 

"I need your help" or "we're drowning" were common SOS calls. Hearing the need for a more catered accounting service experience, Lifeboat Accounting launched in 2019 as a boutique accounting firm.

We offer everything from modern bookkeeping to virtual CFO services. Our Captain/CPA loves working with not-for-profits, startups, and small businesses. We enjoy writing policies, procedures, presentations, and providing education and training for groups and boards. We are both QuickBooks and Xero certified. Analysis, budgeting, and process improvement are some of our favorite specialties. 

We are not your grandparents' accounting firm. We are not your old school bookkeeping service.
  • Lifeboat is not brick and mortar. This allows us to be mobile and at the helm and ready for clients. We can come to you, meet in flex spaces, or work together remotely via Zoom. 
  • Our auto-scheduling means you don't have to wait for us, just select a time that works best for you and our CPA will be there. 
  • Consulting is on a flat hourly rate. Our nerdy tech skills afford us the ability to reduce time on accounting for our clients. That savings goes directly back into your pocket.
