About Us

 

How it all started…

Reconciled bookkeeping company was founded as “Reconciled It” by Michael Ly & Bonnie Reese, both experienced entrepreneurs and business consultants. They wanted to provide a service for the growing demand for high-quality, online bookkeeping and accounting services they heard from their clients.  

Reconciled is a full-service virtual bookkeeping firm. We provide consistent, accurate online bookkeeping and accounting services, while removing the burden of having to manage a part-time bookkeeper. We hire only US-based accounting professionals who possess (at minimum) an accounting certificate from an accredited institution and/or equivalent bookkeeping experience.  

Our Controllers and CFOs are knowledgeable accounting professionals with proven industry experience outside of public accounting.

Awards and Recognition

The demand for reliable bookkeeping and accounting from a trusted partner like Reconciled, has allowed us to grow at a remarkable pace. We put a huge emphasis on building the right team, and being an innovator when it comes to service, technology, and scalability. Reconciled is proud to have won prestigious industry awards, including Intuit Quickbooks Firm of the Future, Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work For, and Vermont Minority Owned Small Business of the Year.
