“I took over a failing family business after my husband sought employment in a different field, but the original accountant made the process impossible and charged a high rate.
Bland & Associates came highly recommended. Ali and Star are smart, forthright professionals who understand what I need and deliver prompt, efficient service that is on-point. They cut through all the unnecessary red tape, saving valuable time. Joining forces with Bland was the best thing that happened in trying to run a small business post-recession.”
– Nancy Sibbernsen, Owner, Malibu Galleries
“I’m a CPA but my expertise is management consulting. I was spending at least six hours a month keeping up with bank accounts and figuring out my income and spending in QuickBooks; it was stressful and a distraction. Having turned my accounting over to Bland & Associates gives me more time to serve clients, and I have peace of mind that I’m tracking income and expenses appropriately.”
– Dan Gaffney, Founder/CEO, VouchedIn, Inc.
“I was always happy with the services provided by Bland & Associates. We were a small non-profit with an unusual structure that required specialized skills and attention and we were never disappointed, Ali knew just how to help us. She was great with our staff and worked hard to make sure we were in compliance and using best practices. I not only recommend her services. I wouldn’t want anyone else.”
– Crystal Rhoades, Juvenile Detention Alternatives Coordinator, Douglas County, Nebraska
“Our family has been in the grocery wholesale distribution business for 22 years, selling in a three-state area.
Five years ago, our company faced adversity and extreme hardship, which included embezzlement. At the time, a business associate referred us to Bland & Associates. Jeremy Vokt, along with the rest of the Bland team, helped us through a very tough situation. This assistance was instrumental in the recovery of our business and the success we enjoy today.
The relationship with our previous accounting firm was very difficult. Bland, on the other hand, is a trusted, loyal partner in our business. They gained our trust with work ethic, expertise, and honesty in all the situations we encountered on our journey. Their expertise and willingness to go the extra step, and the trust we have in their ability is beyond compare. They are reliable and always available for consultation or advice.
Bland & Associates has been a blessing to our family.”
– Jenise Brown, President/Owner, JVB Consulting and Sales
“Angels Among Us has used Bland CPA for a variety of services for over six years with great satisfaction.
They provide us with general accounting, tax, and payroll services, which is very cost effective given our small staff structure. They are highly knowledgeable about non-profit accounting and I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a good accounting firm.”
– Susie Nelson, Executive Director, Angels Among Us

How much would it cost for Bland & Associates to handle my bookkeeping, payroll and/or sales tax?
We’ll work with you to arrive at a monthly fixed price to deliver the services you want us to handle. The monthly fixed price will depend on several factors, including (but not limited to) the number of bank and credit card accounts we’ll need to track for you, the number of transactions running through those accounts, the number of employees you have on payroll, etc.
Will I pay the same monthly fixed price forever?
Each year, we’ll revisit the monthly fixed pricing with you and adjust it based on the changes we’ve seen in your business as it grows. Examples of factors that could result in a monthly fixed fee increase would be an increase in the number of bank accounts and/or the average number of monthly transactions hitting your accounts, an increase in the number of employees you have on staff, expansion of sales into new states, etc.
Who services my account?
You will have one bookkeeper assigned to your account. This person will work on your account, master your unique processes, and be responsible for the day to day servicing of your account.
What is cloud accounting and why should I use it?
Cloud accounting is when the accounting software is hosted on remote servers. By using the cloud, your business is free from having to install and maintain software on individual desktop computers. It also adds flexibility by allowing remote access to the same data in the same version of the software, so you and your employees can work from anywhere.
What small business cloud tools do you work with?
We work with QuickBooks, Gusto, Bill.com, ADP, Receipt Bank, and more!
Shouldn’t my bookkeeper be local?
With the internet and cloud accounting, you are no longer hindered by time and distance. We can securely access your books anytime, anywhere.
How do I get my information to you?
We have a secure portal for you to upload your documents.
