My Testimonials & Reviews

Take a look at what people are saying about us.

Relocation Accounting

My company is a third party relocation management provider and about 3 years ago we were in need of a bookkeeper who understood and was comfortable working within QuickBooks Online. We also wanted someone who was truly interested in our company’s success and who would take time to “catch on” to relocation lingo and allow me to “catch on” to accounting terminology, so that together we could effectively communicate. John not only filled the bill, he also has shown me the true value of keeping our books up to date.

I know that when I reach out to John for assistance, his response time is quick and he always takes time to research and resolve my accounting needs. I trust John with our business and enjoy working with him.

Highly Recommend

John has been “keeping my books” for over 3 years. He comes to my office, reconciles my bank accounts, Quickbooks, and payroll. He is reliable, on-time, and very efficient. I highly recommend Forbes Bookkeeping for anyone looking for bookkeeping assistance.

Dennis Backer, CEO

Valued Member of our Team

I am no bookkeeper, but my job as office manager involves a fair amount of bookkeeping tasks such as creating invoices, paying bills, and preparing payroll, which are all mostly simple data tasks.  I know QuickBooks just well enough to enter the information in the right place.

John Forbes comes in every month to reconcile my bank account which involves going over every transaction to make sure it is correct.  Sometimes I make an error, and that is where John really helps me, as usually fixing the error is far more complicated than doing it correctly in the first place. Occasionally something will get overlooked, and then it shows up on the bank statement and John notices it and is able to fix it as well.

John patiently instructs me on what I did wrong and how it should be done correctly and my errors have decreased greatly.  Typos still happen and he catches those as well, as everything must balance down to the penny.  When he leaves my office after our monthly appointments, balancing the books has been achieved.

I consider John a valued member of my team here at display art inc.
