Jessi's Bookkeeping & Financial Services, Inc.

I founded Jessi’s Bookkeeping & Financial Services to help owners of small and medium-sized businesses understand their finances and make better decisions for their future.

The financial decisions you make for your business directly affect your livelihood, so I am here to offer straightforward guidance and answer your questions about taxes, cash flow, accounting, and more. I provide virtual bookkeeping services based in South Dakota, so I can work with you regardless of physical location. In addition, all employees of Jessi’s Bookkeeping are located in the United States, so we can communicate with you promptly during business hours.

Sturgis Bookkeeping & Tax Service

I am a trained accountant in South Dakota providing full-service bookkeeping for businesses. I also offer personal finance advice in my one-on-one budgeting classes. Whether you are a solopreneur or the director of a large corporation, I offer high-quality financial services to fit your goals and budget. Here are a few of the services I offer:

Tax Support

Taxes can be daunting for any business owner, even if you’ve been in business for years. Tax codes continue to change and become more complex year after year. I can help you keep careful records to ensure you are prepared for tax season. I specialize in local sales taxes, payroll taxes, and audit preparation.

Cash Flow Management

Do you know where each dollar your business makes is going? Are your profit margins suffering, but you don’t know why? Cash flow management and cost accounting evaluate how much your company spends on goods and services. By developing a careful reporting system, we can identify cash flow issues and strategize ways to improve your profits.

Small Business Payroll

With payroll management services, I can advise you on choosing a payroll management software, onboard your employees, and take care of ongoing administration. Not only will this reduce your workload as a manager and business owner, but I will also keep you in compliance with local tax codes.

Financial Reporting

Financial reporting helps directors and business owners make informed decisions about their companies. Reporting includes information on revenue, expenses, debt, and profitability. Accurate reporting allows you to identify and solve financial problems before they become crises, as well as help you set long-term goals.

Money Management Classes

Are you looking for guidance on your personal finances? I offer one-on-one budgeting classes for teens and adults. So whether you want to improve your money management skills or set your children up for success, I’d love to work with you.

Financial Planning for Business

Do you have plans to expand your business to a new location or hire additional staff but aren’t sure if you can afford it? Through careful reporting and good financial strategy, we can evaluate your current situation and plan for the growth of your business.

bookkeeping FAQs

It depends. Bookkeeping software is becoming easier to use, so many business owners will conduct their own bookkeeping when their company is small. However, keeping accurate financial records takes time away from running your business, so you may want to consider hiring a professional.

Plus, a professional bookkeeper or accountant can offer insight into the financial health of your business and catch issues that may take you longer to notice on your own. You can also be confident that your records are accurate and organized, making it easier to file taxes or apply for a business loan.

Bookkeeping costs can vary widely depending on your business size and the services you are looking for. My services for small businesses start at around $350 per month, but rates for larger companies can range into the thousands. I enjoy working with businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to large corporations. Reach out for a free consultation to discuss your budget and business needs, and we’ll create a plan that works for you.

Businesses in every industry can benefit from bookkeeping services. Every business needs to be able to keep financial records, pay their employees, and understand their cash flow. Bookkeepers can work with restaurants, construction companies, healthcare providers, and more.

I can process your payroll taxes and provide audit support, but I currently do not file personal or business tax returns. I do partner with a licensed CPA, however, for tax preparation. Finding a trustworthy tax preparer can be stressful, so I’m happy to help you check that off of your list. I will also provide your tax professional with the necessary financial records to help streamline the process. No more sifting through folders of invoices and receipts!
Yes! The first step toward increasing profits is understanding your current financial situation. I can provide accurate financial reporting to help you set goals for the future. Careful cost accounting can help you identify discrepancies and create a new strategy for maximizing your profits.

My clients range from sole proprietors to multi-million dollar companies. I also offer budgeting classes for individuals who want to improve their personal finances. No project is too big or too small. I am committed to providing honest, attentive, and transparent financial services to every client I work with. I work with many South Dakota businesses, but can provide remote services anywhere in the U.S.
