What Clients Say
Read what clients who have worked with OSYB say about our services.
I would highly recommend OSYB to other companies
My business, The Internet Antique Shop, is an online antique mall. We currently have about 400 merchants and list about 650,000 pieces.
For many years, we had an in-house person doing our bookkeeping. But we wanted more. That’s when we turned to Outsource Your Books.
“OSYB has gone above and beyond to help us get everything done on time and on budget.”
Primarily it was the cost issue of having somebody full-time on our system versus taking it to Outsource Your Books. They are incredibly efficient and we deal with them in person, on occasion, but primarily via the web and telephone.
They have access to our files online so they can download whatever they need from us. If they have any questions, they contact us directly. Working with OSYB has been very, very efficient and I can’t say enough about them. They have really worked with us and, in many cases, OSYB has gone above and beyond to help us get everything done on time and on budget.
OSYB is very efficient in getting us the monthly profit and loss statements we need. They assist us with our taxes and work very well with our tax accountant. All in all, it has been a great experience for us.
“The cost efficiencies of working with OSYB have been fantastic.”
The cost efficiencies of working with OSYB have been fantastic. In fact, as we become more efficient and use up less of their time, they come back to us and actually lower their fees. This is something that people don’t see in today’s world.
I would highly recommend OSYB to other companies. The relationship I have with them is great. I can contact them when I need a check cut, and they respond very quickly. There have been numerous occasions where Ed Becker has been out of town, but he still gets back to me within minutes of me e-mailing him. He is incredibly, incredibly on the ball and goes above and beyond what I would expect from normal accounting firms to do.
We have a good relationship with them over the years and we hope to keep on expanding on this as our company grows.

OSYB keeps us organized and saves our company time
The Great American Photo Contest invites people to upload their favorite photo of their child or their pet. The photo that gets the most votes in a month wins $2,500 dollars. Since we started, we’ve had over 10 million people come to our website and we’ve given away over $200,000 dollars in prizes.
“I think any company our size that doesn’t need a full-time bookkeeper but do enough business that they need bookkeeping assistance, tracking and accounting, should definitely talk to OSYB.”
I used to do the bookkeeping myself. But because we deal with hundreds of publishers and advertising clients every month, I couldn’t keep up. As soon as I admitted to myself that I needed help, I contacted Ed Becker at Outsource Your Books.
Today, I send the information to Ed. He does all the tracking. Plus, he schedules payments and cuts all the checks for us. OSYB also reviews my accounts receivable, reconciles our bank statements, and reconciles our credit card statements. OSYB saves me a ton of time.
After three years of working with OSYB, the biggest impacts on our company are organization and time saving. I think any company our size that doesn’t need a full-time bookkeeper but does enough business that they need bookkeeping assistance, should definitely talk to OSYB.

Most knowledgeable bookkeeper I’ve ever worked with
Ed Becker and his bookkeeping service, Outsource Your Books, brought order to my bookkeeping chaos.
Some of my past bookkeepers required extensive training. Not Ed. In the 11 years I’ve run my small business, Ed is the most knowledgeable bookkeeper I’ve ever worked with, which isn’t surprising given he is a CPA. Ed also knows QuickBooks software better than anyone I know and if there’s something he doesn’t know, he gets the answer immediately.
“Brought order to my bookkeeping chaos. I give Ed my highest recommendation.”
As other reviewers have commented, Ed is super responsive. When I send him an email or give him a call, I get an answer almost immediately. Last week, I received an error in QuickBooks. I thought it was a sticky problem that might take days to figure out. Ed got the answer to me in 30 minutes.
Ed has saved me a ton of time, made financial reporting easier for our business, and made my tax preparer’s job easier too. I give Ed my highest recommendation!

OSYB makes sure that everything is done right
Our company provides testing and diagnostics for physicians across the United States.
“If we had to hire someone to do our bookkeeping instead of OSYB, we’d probably be spending twice as much and not getting the quality or the value.”
Early on, our founder and CEO did the bookkeeping himself. As the company grew, he realized he needed help. There really was no one on staff at that time that had the experience or time. So we looked for someone to outsource to.
That’s when I found Outsource Your Books. OSYB makes sure that everything is done right. They have the experience to deliver tremendous quality when it comes to bookkeeping and accounting. If we had to hire someone to do our bookkeeping, we’d probably be spending twice as much and not getting the quality or the value. I think choosing OSYB is one of the best decisions our company ever made.
