Jane was most helpful when I met with her in preparation of year end taxes as well as entering purchase of equipment into my QB software. She also suggested exemption assistance for State taxes and gave me important links to follow up with application of the exemption. I feel comfortable with having her process my personal year-end taxes for the first time after having done it myself using Turbo Tax. I want to get out of doing this myself and leave it to a professional such as Jane.

Jane’s qualifications, certifications, and expertise makes her a wonder to the Intuit world. She is very helpful and does not forget any steps in providing the help you need to grasp a better understanding (or familiarize yourself with, or even become an expert yourself) with QuickBooks. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and I would deem you very fortunate to have her wealth of knowledge and experience to assist you. Her QuickBooks seminar for beginners helped me have a much better understanding of the way QB works. I look forward to the difference she can make in future seminars, one-on-one, and especially, MY future. Thank You so much Jane!

I’ve been using QuickBooks nearly everyday for about three years, and it was nice to get some better insights into the “bigger picture” of being more accurate with how we post expenses, for example. Although I knew most of the things Jane went over, the most invaluable part of the seminar was the section going over Chart of Accounts, and how to make a new expense account and then being able to generate a detailed report. I’d definitely like to see Jane do a seminar on QuickBooks with a particular focus on advanced accounting in the future.

I am a Notary Public and will soon be doing Live Scan Fingerprints as well. I met Jane through a friend. She is the most patient and wonderful person as well as being very knowledgeable about QuickBooks Products. She took the time with me to discuss my small business and what I need then recommended the QuickBooks On-Line Essentials. My business is service driven and I was surprised when setting up my books that they even had “Notary” as a business type when setting up my chart of accounts. Jane offered help at any point and she is very approachable.

Julie M.

Accounting Manager, Manufacturing Company
June, 23 2015

Absolutely – the best!! I was very reluctant to change payroll services, however, Jane helped me weigh out the pros and cons, and discussed the excellent reporting capabilities that Intuit Payroll has. I work at a small business and Intuit Payroll fit our needs perfectly while saving a significant amount of money per month with service fee. Jane’s said, “I really want to help save companies money and that gives me satisfaction.” She has earned the title of, “Pro-Advisor” and I would highly recommend her.

Our Company and QuickBooks File were born in a Garage. After the Company grew into a real business and moved from the Driveway into a real Brick and Mortar building with 17 employees, we realized that we knew a lot about Industrial Contracting but not much about how to set up an efficient and proper accounting system. Money was falling out of the holes in our collection bucket and what we created turned cumbersome and ripe for loss. We cried out for help, and along came Jane. Jane straightened out our books and procedures and and we have never been more profitable. Jane worked with our Staff in implementation of Proper Accounting Practices and training in QuickBooks processes to help make us all the efficient team we need to be and the productive company we should have been a few years ago. Thank you Jane!

I recently completed a business acquisition for a local franchise, American Leak Detection of Central California. I was hit with an eleventh hour issue that the Seller of the business was planning to take the QuickBooks Program and I needed to set up my own Accounting Program. I was referred to Jane at Accounting America. In a panic, I met with Jane to determine how I was suppose to set up our accounting program prior to the open of my newly acquired business the following week. Jane shared the options and offered to assist with the set up process prior to the upcoming opening of my business. Immediately I realized Jane was so knowledgeable of the process, products and her confidence to deliver that I started to feel better about the process. Jane completed the set up via her system late Friday and on Saturday. She met me at my office on Sunday at 5:00pm, completed the Quickbooks set up and my Bookkeeper didn’t skip a beat come Monday morning. I am forever grateful to Jane and Accounting America for this unbelievable act of kindness and commitment under this unique situation.

As a beginner, I have never really had much hands on experience with QuickBooks. She made me feel secure because it was very easy to transition from her on screen demonstrations to QuickBooks entries and reports on my laptop. Her instruction on generating reports made it quick and easy for me to see the potential to track my future business as well as find opportunities to create revenue within the future growth of my business. I appreciated her willingness to address questions related to my personal future business, even though, we were in a group setting. I would definitely take another learning course with her as she made QuickBooks easy to follow and understand.

I have been using Quickbooks for about 10 years now, so I am not a beginner in using the program. I have tried several times to meet with quickbooks advisors only to find out that they didn’t know a whole lot more than I do. Jane was very helpful in re-structuring some of my accounts and setting up some rules to help us do job costing better. There are other advisors that are less expensive than Jane, but you get what you pay for, and she is worth it.

I found Jane and Lorena while looking for someone to assist me with setting up QuickBooks. They are both wonderful! Jane is smart, kind and listened carefully. In just a few minutes she knew exactly how to tackle the issues I needed assistance with, and had me set up and rolling to get my job completed. She understood the urgency and they both helped me get the job done right away. I will be bringing all my accounting and tax issues to them! Jane worked with my schedule, and I was amazed to find they both answer questions on the weekend! I feel like I am finally at the right place, with an expert who can help me with all our small business accounting AND tax needs!

Jane Faulks did an excellent job of setting up QuickBooks as our new accounting system for our business. She is highly knowledgeable of QuickBooks and her professional background in accounting and as a CPA are an additional asset and a great resource. Jane reviewed our current accounting procedures and helped us incorporate them as she trained our staff how to work with QB; this helped us make a smooth transition from the old acct system to QB. Her understanding of the various accounting methods used and what information a business needs for accounting, tax, and lending purposes was key in setting up reports and making them relevant to who or what department would use them. Jane has continued to be available for questions or issues regarding QB even though it has been 2 1/2 years since we installed it. We are very pleased with how QuickBooks is working in our business and we believe that a big part of this is the personal attention Jane gave to training and teaching each staff member and owner how to use QB for our specific needs. We highly recommend Jane and her services as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.

Jane Faulks and her team have provided excellent service for our bookkeeping needs. Her Quickbooks knowledge is vast and she has shown me many ways to streamline our bookkeeping processes, saving me both time and headaches of learning the program on my own. We had a issue with our merchant services payments and deposits and Jane was able to dissect the problem and correct it better than our own CPA. I highly recommend her as a Quickbooks ProAdvisor.

We use Premier Contractors Edition. We had another person come to set up or program and he didn’t understand what we needed for our company. One of our Subcontracts referred us to Jane because she had set his system up and he was very please with her. Jane is a very friendly and out out going person. Jane was able to set up our system to the needs of our company. We learned a lot from her. I would highly recommend her to any company who is considering buying Quick books. If you have question she is always willing to help with.

I was not entirely new to QuickBooks. But the company I was hired for over a year ago does use QuickBooks Enterprise extensively. There are so many things about QuickBooks that I didn’t know, such as payroll and job costing. Jane was the one who trained me from the Basic to the more Advance Functions.
We worked together quite extensively. Jane is definitely a “pro” with Quickbooks. She has taught me to be comfortable with the program. She has shown that Quickbooks can benefit a company in many ways from accounts receivable, to accounts payable, to payroll, to inventory. Her insight into Quickbooks gives a novice the confidence to keep trying. Thank you Jane.

Our business started in a garage but has grown up into a 7 figure machine that needs a lot of oiling. I was finally relieved to find a QuickBooks Pro that lived up to the title that others had fallen short of. Besides her mastering of Accountancy, Jane has the best overall experience of anyone that I have used in the Construction field. What makes her even better, is that she has a great ability to explain and teach. Knowing that I can learn from her and not be so dependant on another gives me a good feeling of security. Thanks Jane for giving my company back to me!

There are a lot accountants who consider themselves to be QuickBooks Experts and Pros, but I have not come across one who is a real expert in QuickBooks and has a thorough understanding of Construction. Jane Faulk truly is an expert in both. Jane is a very knowledgeable CPA and offers great customer service and support. I would highly recommend Jane to anyone who is in need of a true QuickBooks Pro. I’m so glad we found her!
