An Extension of Your Team

Sometimes small business owners try to handle every aspect of their business, from operations to accounting, bookkeeping, and everything in between. It’s not the easiest, fastest, or best way to manage a growing business. But you already know that, which is probably why you’re here.

The bottom line: You don’t have to do it all yourself and you shouldn’t do it all yourself. Trying to do it all just leads to slower growth and burnout.

Upper Left Accounting operates as an extension of your team. You focus on running your business and we’ll focus on providing you with the best accounting services available to small businesses on the plateau.

What People Say

Jonathan Robinson

Upper Left Accounting has made my life so much easier as a general contractor on so many occasions. They are easy to work with, have great attention to detail and daily followup when they're solving problems. They're very communicative and its very easy to get ahold of anyone to ask questions.

Jesse Shaw

I had an employee hurt on the job. I have never been more grateful to have a professional that I can trust to take care of my business and the odds and ends I do not understand (or really want to). Upper Left had everything in order and made sure I was following protocol. They took care of everything with L&I and made sure my employee was taken care of as well.

Travis A. Smith

Upper Left Accounting is a great team--very responsive and their attention to detail is extremely high. I would recommend this team to any small business for their accounting needs. I am glad to have their support for my business and hope it continues for a very long time.
