As a CPA, you know the true value of a Balance Sheet.
It's everything in Small Business Accounting.


Without it, the books are worthless, although most don't realize that.
With it, and suspended accounts in the mix, the books are still mostly worthless.
It is THE reason you will NOT touch the books done by others without charging hefty fees, if at all.
The Intuit Balance Sheet process can be nearly impossible to reconcile at times. Even for Pros.

As a CPA, have you ever seen a Spreadsheet Template for Bookkeeping with a fully functional Balance Sheet?

As a CPA, have you ever seen a Spreadsheet Template with a General Ledger that manifests directly from Journal Data without anywhere for errors to hide?

As a CPA, are you up to speed on what can be done with Google's Cloud based Spreadsheets for Bullet Proof Accounting?

Built for Transparency.
Digital Accounting now has a 6th Account Type to make sure nothing ever gets buried w/o notice.

As a CPA you know a few more secrets too....

1) As a CPA, you know that Intuit's Bookkeeping offerings for Small Business people are grossly lacking .

  • You know the Quickbooks Cloud Solution is so cumbersome that few small business people could ever handle it properly. It's so bad, many of you will not even use it.

  • You know the Quickbooks Desktop Solution is Archaic and binds people to stand alone Computers , Backup Routines and Forced Upgrades that should have been obsolete many years ago.

  • You know there is no logical reason why Intuit should still control 85% of this marketplace with these types of offerings.

2) As a CPA, you know a "competitive marketplace" would not result in the capture of your Small Business Clients in Intuit's ecosystem in such a binding way.

  • You know the Software market for Small Business Accounting is a Monopoly controlled by Intuit

  • You know the Software market for Small Business Accounting is lacking healthy competition which should have forced Intuit to create better products decades ago.

  • You know that having your client's data in Quickbooks Cloud Solution provides Intuit and those they sell analytics to with insight into the private business of Small Business People in ways no clients or Small Business industries should be subjected to.

  • You know that having your customers data in Quickbooks Desktop solution is an odd constraint and a technical burden on Small Business people given Intuit's stock price has increased by 300% since 2008.

3) As a CPA, you know, down deep, that a portion of your income and the opportunity to charge high hourly wages has resulted from abominable basic accounting education, impaired software, and procedural complexity that has been contrived by Intuit in a way that is not in the best interest of your clients.

  • You know this to be true.

  • You may not be happy about it or you may not care, but you know in your Heart of Hearts, this is true.

  • Intentionally or otherwise, you have prospered from your clients capture handsomely. Oh the burdens some might bear.

While others are brighter for sure!!

1) As a CPA, you know bookkeeping for Tax Accounting is best done arrears with transactions manually downloaded from a Bank.

  • You know cash flow management and outstanding checks are better tracked outside of a Bookkeeping Module as the post dates are the most relevant thing in bookkeeping not the transaction dates. A simple spreadsheet is actually best for tracking outstanding checks.

  • You also know the best Bookkeeping module is NOT connected to any other Accounting Modules, because anything else only over complicates the process.

  • You know that all the hype related to tying everything together is far more about binding people to products than binding them to best practices that are in their own best interest.

2) As a CPA, you know transactions downloaded from a bank in csv or spreadsheet format can be categorized directly in a Spreadsheet for Tax Accounting Purposes. Such a "trick" eliminates the need for Intuit or any Bookkeeping software at all if you are willing to forgo a Balance Sheet or do one manually.

  • You also know just how easy it is to create an income statement in a spreadsheet given a transaction list. It's only a few array formulas or cell level equations dragged down a column, if you prefer that. It only takes 5-10 minutes to build that template one time.

3) As a CPA, you know the Balance Sheet is the most misunderstood report in all of Accounting, and you know it is the most powerful for finding transaction categorization errors.

  • You know that a set of books without a Balance Sheet is totally and completely worthless

  • You also know that a set of books with a Balance Sheet that requires suspended accounts for reconciliation is equally worthless.

4) As a CPA, you know that Journal Data stored in a Spreadsheet that directly fed a General Ledger and Balance Sheet would be far superior to all of Intuit's offerings as well as any others who offer structured Database Driven solutions.

  • You also know the only way you'd ever sign off on that is if you could see all the mechanations with your own eyes.

  • We get that, because Personal Experience is the only real Teacher.

All this you know to be true too, along with the idea that we know some secrets too...

Could now be your Time to Shine ?

If you discovered a Google Spreadsheet Template that provided unlimited Asset and Liability Journals, a General Journal, a General Ledger and a Balance Sheet created with spreadsheet formulas only, to ensure nothing gets lost in the sauce, would you tell your clients they could depart the Intuit ecosystem for Life?

Yes or No?

What if the Google Templates are FREE?

What if downloading them without a user account provides a Lifetime of Privacy?

What if we provide other modules that help them with their other Accounting needs currently filled by Intuit?

Would you tell them then?

Yes or No?

The Game of Commerce is tough.
Intuit has been playing rough for over 30 years.
Right or Wrong, many CPA's have benefited from their Monopoly.
Are You now willing to help your Clients in a very cool way most beneficial to them now?

We provide a stand alone, data independent, open source, Cloud Based, Double Entry Bookkeeping Module that offers far greater Privacy, Security, Simplicity and Customization than anything ever fathomed by most, and we provide unlimited copies for FREE, for LIFE.

Will you be the bearer of Good News?

Yes, No or Maybe?

If "Yes, conditionally", that's a great way to be right now !!

Asking for anything more at this point would be inappropriate. Thank you! Please jump to the next section below!

If "Maybe", that's a good way to be at this point too!!

Maybe is fine for starters!!! Please jump to the next section below!

If "No", why Not?

If you feel a little uncomfortable being asked to consider a software solution that you may not feel is in your own best financial interest, hopefully that wouldn't stop you? Intuit's customers have felt gouged for decades and turn about now is very fair play. The internet is a great place for sharing news and differing perspectives so do tell us why please so we can log that in our records now too!!

If still pondering a "no", might you lose credibility when they find out later you knew about all of this yesterday but chose not to share with them then so they could be elsewhere today?
But how would they know?
Ah yes. How would they know.
Well, that's what this website is all About!!

If still pondering a "no", please remember one final interesting and important detail !!!

The files we are offering for free are "just spreadsheet templates". The Google Cloud Spreadsheet system makes them sexier, but a spreadsheet template alone is in fact all they will ever be.

Everything we are offering today, as non CPAs, with our own trades to ply, should have been created by CPAs or others comparably situated in the earliest days of the personal computer and spreadsheets, and most certainly in more recent times too.

A standalone Excel Template that does what this does could have been created 25 years ago. It would have been comparable to Quickbooks Desktop functionality both then and today with a transparent and manageable Balance Sheet and not a suspended expense account in sight.

With that understanding the question is clear. What exactly has been going on around here? With over 650,000 CPAs in the country today, can anyone explain why this was not done by a CPA?

As CPA hourly rates have skyrocketed have you proactively lobbied the IRS to un-complicate things at all for your clients? Have you assisted your clients with simplifying their confusion or simply allowed them to be fed to the Silicon Valley wolves?

And as for "how would they know"? This website has valuable education for everyone, not just you. It was in fact the first place we posted our ZAP Bookkeeping Module vs Quickbooks comparison chart. So, when they saw that, conveniently, they saw all this too!!


Small Business Owners have been fed to the Intuit Machine for decades. It has been like taxation without representation, and CPAs have been one of the primary conduits through which the Octopus has made its way...

The hourly fees for some CPA's have skyrocketed to $300 and $400/hour while the Intuit Stock Price has skyrocketed too? To be clear, few will tell you directly that is their fees, but that in fact is what flat rate pricing for services in the digital age has done for many.

During the same time, the task of being a SMALL BUSINESS DOER has grown harder by the day with diminishing returns year after year.

In recent years other companies like and have come along. Now it's a never ending list of Silicon Valley, Seattle or Austin based Software as a Service (SaaS) vendors seeking more and more blood from our National and Global Small Business community, and they all rely on CPA's to push their way through?

We are now done with these shenanigans !!

As a fellow Small Business Person, you should be too.

With the alternative options we present, your business can still survive, and that's far better than can be said for many of your clients during this COVID-19 hit charade.
You may have to work a little harder for a little less, but we've been doing that for decades, so welcome to The Club!

Our Bookkeeping Module is but one of 18 templates currently available to Small Business People for FREE and more are on the way. This isn't going away and in fact, it's very clearly here to stay.

In the opening paragraph, we mentioned a 6 Box Model for Accounting Systems. This is the type of visual and mental aid Small Business People have needed for decades to be more discerning. This is a screen shot from our Website.

We have Templates for most of these at some level or another, plus a mountain of education that is second to none....

It is our firm belief that EVERY small business person, no matter their size should use a CPA to file their Taxes. That always makes sense when the entire eco-system is taken into account. More Financially literate people mean more Small Business People.

ZAP Software User's that can present an organized and logical Tax Preparation Packet to a ZAP friendly CPA should get fare rates and great service for their annual fees.

Great Promotion is a Two Way Street!

When you see what we're doing to balance our Play, hopefully you too will be itching to stay!!

Those that join in become the Healers you've dreamed of being, and that's what makes this a very great day.

What's the next step for those with interest?

We tried to guess what you might want to know next. We prefer text to videos for purpose of prose.

1) You want to know exactly how the Journals, General Ledger and Balance sheet are created. If you can follow that logic easily, with the ability to check under the hood in a bit, that would be a great first step. The ZAP vs Quickbooks page is designed for a quick overview geared just for you. It starts with a startling comparison and then details exactly what you'll want to know next.

2) The next thing you should want to know is how we present bookkeeping to the masses, with proper importance on the Balance Sheet, and assurances that what has been elusive in the past is Child's Play today. The 5 Step Bookkeeping page leads the way. Or of course you could dive deeper into our Bookkeeping ABCs website for that and a whole lot more.

3) Beyond that? You should want to know what the other features and benefits of our offerings are along with a very clear outline of the drawbacks and limitations so you don't encourage a departure from Quickbooks for someone who really has a reason to stay, for the few that may. See our "Bookkeeping Module Tech Support Site" for this and a tad bit more.

NOTE: All the links for the other websites can also be found on the "Where to Next" page, so no need to go there now or remember these links here.

We came to Play and We're here to stay!

Actually, we've been here all along just futzing with Gongs.

Do join us.

It'll make your world and ours Fantastic and a lot more Gay.
