Adele Gruber

Meet Adele

I LOVE accounting so you don’t have to!

After running my own small business for 15 years, I have returned to my first “passion” – for accounts that balance and numbers that make sense. I have graduated in Accounting and become Certified as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor in both Desktop and QuickBooks Online. I love the way the new tech is changing the way we work and exploring the apps that will make your work life more streamlined fascinates and challenges. Past knowing the software, you need to know the meaning of the debits and credits so that you have books that are both useful to running your business and current. I do know and love the debits and the credits! Whether you are a small business or nonprofit, I would love to help your accounting make sense, whether it is explaining and training, troubleshooting and fixing, setting-up, cleaning-up or doing your regular periodic best-practice accounting. Let me be of service!

Testimonials

“Found Adele via QBO profinder when I was panicked with frustration levels with cleaning up QBO for a year end review and audit. Adele responded quickly with and made time to help me. She located the problem rather quickly and gave me a tutorial to ensure that I was using QBO to the fullest extent. I will keep Adele on speed dial for future endeavors and bookkeeping needs. Thanks, Adele!”
Crisis averted! Adele to the rescue!, ED, July 25, 2018
“I run a small business. I use QBO. My previous bookkeeper left a year ago and my books were a mess. Within a month Adele has cleaned up three years of problems. She has been prompt, polite, professional, and done a great job. She has coordinated well with my Tax Accountant and together they’ve cleaned up those issues too! It is a tremendous relief to have this part of my business in order and I have Adele to thank for that. Her knowledge of QBO and teaching me how to do basic stuff in it is also a plus — I can do the basics and have her double check my work on a monthly basis.”
I'd still be in a bookkeeping mess without Adele!, Annette, June 9, 2018
“Man, where do I start? Adele has been so amazing in helping me get my books in order. I have run my own business since 2015 and have used quickbooks the entire time, poorly…… She was able to do a deep dive and get me sorted out and now my 2017 tax filing is a breeze due to how my quickbooks are finally correct. She did such a great job we decided to continue having her update and reconcile my accounts each month. I cannot recommend Adele enough! A pleasure to do business with and she knows her stuff.”
What a great help!, scotelkins, April 3, 2018
“From the moment I met Adele, I knew she was more than capable—she’s a powerhouse. My small business was in desperate need of accounting help as I was several years behind in my taxes. Every other accountant I had approached had scolded me for being so irresponsible with my finances. But Adele was different. From the get go, she took a proactive approach and involved me in the process, so I could learn financial skills I previously believed I had lacked. Adele’s attention to detail is superb. She sent consolidated emails asking precise questions, showing a respect for my time. She was good at nudging me when I was being lax about submitting documents. Her problem solving skills put Sherlock Holmes to shame—she can quickly reconcile discrepancies in the books with her careful sleuthing. Her rates were affordable and fair. In fact, many times she offered advice that saved me money in the long run. On a personal note, Adele is an fascinating individual with many intriguing life stories. My experience with her was less cold-accountant-in-a-cubicle and more real human being who understands the ins and outs of being an entrepreneur.”

“I own a small business and needed a new bookkeeper in a pinch to help us through a difficult transition. Adele was exactly what we needed and more. She immediately became a trusted partner who straightened out our books, setup QBO, and provided valuable insights as to the path forward. What’s more, she is professional, prompt, accessible and a joy to work with. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for accounting/bookkeeping help!”

“I have two businesses in transition with books that had been neglected, one of which was impacting our ability to file taxes. Adele was very efficient in bringing them up to date. She was able to make complicated adjustments to Balance Sheet items including equity and loans, which needed to be cleaned up before the next tranche of development. Adele was thoroughly engaged in understanding future strategies of my companies. Her understanding of QuickBooks and accounting took care of our immediate needs and put us on the right track moving forward. I highly recommend her”

My bookkeeper decided to retire and I was stuck with an outdated 2006 version of QuickBooks. Adele really understood my bookkeeping needs based on her eclectic background. She very capably converted my files to the 2017 desktop version and electronic bank feeds to make updates more efficient. All the work was completed in time for me to file my tax returns.

Adele has been instrumental in helping us tackle this beast called Quickbooks. Now, QBO is a much friendlier ally for our business. And thanks to Adele’s mentorship we’re beginning to enjoy discovering the possibilities of this “new” tool for the future. We look forward to working with her in the future.

5 Stars, April 06, 2017

Adele helped set up QBO and chart of accounts. She is an expert in QB and receptive of client requirements and circumstances. I enjoyed working with her.

I inherited a new bookkeeping and tax account, with 7 bank accounts both personal and business in QuickBooks. Thanks to Adele, they were untangled so as to make the P & L work.

5 Stars December 26, 2016

Adele is a highly skilled bookkeeper with certified Quickbooks skills, an ability to automate repetitive tasks, and more importantly someone who is responsive, responsible as well as very diligent. I would highly recommend her for any kind of consulting business accounting.

5 Stars December 22, 2016

I called Adele in to trouble-shoot the QuickBooks accounting system of my company, which was a mess. I was impressed with her ability to untangle the issues and how she related with my CPA in getting everything in order. I highly recommend her!

5 Stars December 13, 2016

Adele really helped us to establish the Chart of Accounts for our new business, which as a startup, changed quite regularly in the beginning.

After taking the time to understand our business and our goals, she was very proficient in advising us on the use of the software and she has excellent accounting knowledge. She was proactive in helping us think about how to account for some business activities which helped us address business processes that we had not yet considered.
