As a small business ourselves, we at Keeping the Balance love to work with small business clients! We understand the uniquely exciting opportunities and difficult challenges that small businesses face as they work to compete and grow.

The majority of our clients have fewer than 20 employees. Many employ sub-contractors and part time help as well as salaried employees, and we provide payroll, accounting and bookkeeping services that accommodate each of these employment categories.

Our client roster ranges from doctors to restaurants, retailers to professional service providers. Keeping the Balance is also qualified to handle the specific needs of law firms as well as the often complicated requirements for construction companies’ bookkeeping needs.

This is what just a few of our clients have to say about Keeping the Balance:


Eyewear Designs by Frances

I took over an existing business which I’ve had 31 years experience in, and I can perform those duties with my eyes shut…but I’ve never had my own business. I am so thankful that I was introduced to Cindy (and am proud to say that I was her first client and still an existing client). Keeping the balance has not only helped me keep a balance but has treated me with such respect, care and fairness! Cindy has a knack for numbers and computers as well as a teaching presence that is calming and reassuring. I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone for business or personal use…she is a one of a kind find!

As a startup entrepreneur, I have found Cindy’s services to be invaluable. She is helpful, timely, thorough, and even sets her own reminders to tell me it is time to do my corporate returns. If you are considering hiring Cindy MacRitchie and her accounting services, consider this a positive testimonial, from a three year client.

US Card Corporation

Cindy MacRitchie is a life saver. After starting a new business and not being too comfortable with accounting, she has been extremely helpful with insights and training to help the finanical side of my business run smoothly. Her friendly nature, unending patience, and hands-on experience has removed the stress I had dealing with the accounting side of business. I can recommend her services without hesitation. She has been wonderful.

Thank you so much for doing all that you do for our business. Your service and and knowledge and professionalism has been invaluable to Jeff and I, in helping us grow, and become profitable! Most importantly, you have kept us informed on important tax information, and how to avoid paying them unnecessarily.

Your expert knowledge in QuickBooks, and in accounting has enabled us to be organized and profitable, and kept us on track with our budget and projections. You have also been wonderful by giving me some great advice, when it comes to knowing how to approach the “artist” with “business matters”! You have allowed a very small business, with limited resources, to operate as if we had an entire staff. I truly feel as if you were a blessing, the day you walked into our Studio! We value your service and friendship very much, and look forward to growing and prospering with you!

Hancock & Hancock, PA

Cindy MacRitchie is wonderful!  As a partner in our law firm, I have worked directly with Cindy every week for over three years.  Professionally, she is timely, focused on the details, eager to teach, patient and accurate.  She is superb at detecting errors and reconciling our operating and trust accounts.  Because of the nature of our business, there are times when I have asked her to also help with my personal accounting, which she does so without hesitation.  Personally, she is a breath of fresh air, always arriving at our office with an uplifting attitude and a welcoming smile.  Cindy is an asset to my business.  I would highly recommend her to anyone for business or personal accounting services.
