Certified Bookkeepers

Providing setup and operation of LEAP Accounting with
Xero or MYOB.

Certified Bookkeepers know LEAP and Xero or MYOB. They provide assistance with the setup and operation of their office accounting in Xero or MYOB and the general ledger relationship between LEAP and Xero or MYOB, as well as ongoing support once the installation is complete.

Some of the Consultants also have special skills at helping clients with the implications of migrating from one of the old bookkeeping systems to LEAP.

You have the peace of mind of knowing that your consultant is completely familiar with all aspects of your legal and office accounting systems. LEAP Certified Bookkeepers are independent contractors who have been certified by LEAP but are not employed by or contracted by LEAP.
