FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you are online, how do I know you are actually working for me?
We deliver results. Period. If we do not deliver for you, you can stop working with us. You don’t pay us for the time it takes to stumble around the office and eat donuts/coffee all day (I mean we actually do drink a LOT of coffee…). You pay us to deliver you results.
What are the advantages of using online bookkeepers?
- It means its easier to get in touch with us! You can email us, call us, video call, phone call. You don’t have to drive to come see us (ever) and you don’t have to mail anything to us (ever).
- We also use a lot of SaaS tools and we are super tech friendly. We know there are a tonne of software that make your experience better with us. We believe we can provide a better service to you by use using these online tools. We believe you are online all the time, and that is where you expect us to be.
My business has a lot of paperwork, how do you convert that into a format that you can work with?
That’s our pixie dust! That’s what makes us special. We’ve seen it all! We breakdown every source of paper document you receive and send out. Then we work at how we can improve the process to have them all in digital format. It does not work for every type of business, but you can simply have a quick consultation with us to see how we can help your specific business.
What if an emergency comes up, are you always available?
We are constantly available 5 days per week(Common, we need a break over the weekends too!). If an emergency comes up over a weekend/evening you can always leave us a voicemail and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
If I work with a “virtual” accounting team, do I lose any of the benefits of face-to-face communication?
We think the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. It depends on your personality, and how you interact with people. If you need to give your accountant a hug when you meet them, maybe we’re not the right fit. By having video calls and screen sharing we’re able to see exactly what you see and provide guidance to you from the comfort of your own home or office.
So I always deal with the same people at Zenbooks?
We assign you a Zenbooks CFO, Zenbooks Controller and Zenbooks Accountant. We don’t have much staff turnover(knock on wood), and we write out our operational knowledge so we can share it amongst our team. So if ever the team changes, you don’t get impacted.
How fast can you get started?
We need to give our team a break. We can only take on 1 new client per month. Depending on our capacity, you may need to wait a few weeks before we can really jump in and start the onboarding process.
What kind of staff members join our team?
Proactive and Reactive services come with a Controller/Manager and accountant. At the Strategic level, you get a Virtual CFO on your side!
How do you connect with your clients?
Our HQ is in Ottawa, Ontario, and we work remotely with our clients. We often have video calls (through Zoom) to screen share and see each other and while emails are also often used. But you can also always give us a call!
