Does Your Accountant "Get" the Painting Business?
I am a former painting business owner and military officer, and current bookkeeper and tax accountant. With my painting and accounting experience, I'm uniquely positioned to help painting contractors save time, money, and resources.
For years I worked in the residential and commercial painting industry. I did everything from prep work and painting to managing crews and completing estimates with clients.
After my stint in the painting industry, I pursued an education in business and accounting and served as a military officer in the intelligence field. I have a Bachelors in Accounting, an MBA, and have the Enrolled Agent designation allowing me to represent and practice before the IRS.
During my time in the intelligence field, I learned the value of being proactive and staying ahead of the enemy. I apply this mentality to my accounting practice through forward-looking advice to my clients. I don't just report; I analyze and forecast. This provides immense value to the clients I serve and builds trust.
I am passionate about sharing my knowledge of taxes and business to help painting contractors grow their company.
I only work with a select few painting contractors and provide professional, prompt service to ensure their success.
"I have been using Dan and Online Bookkeep for over six months now and wish you started sooner. The technology and the expertise has saved me thousands and thousand of dollars on end of year taxes as well as now realizing what jobs are making me money with the job costing he provides. Two thumbs up or in Google talk he definitely gets 5 stars."
"Daniel was able to save me a lot on taxes. He pointed out a lot of things to save on taxes that my previous accountant never mentioned."

"Before hiring BookkeepingForPainters, our books were a mess. I was constantly trying to make sense of a whirlwind of numbers and terminology that I just didn't quite understand. I knew enough to get myself into trouble, basically. Daniel has taken us step by step and created an easy to follow and understand bookkeeping process as well as explained what is happening very well along the way.
I chose BookkeepingForPainters because I wanted help with my books from someone who knew and understood the painting business. While I could have chosen "any" bookkeeper, Daniel was much less expensive than hiring part-time help and specialized in my industry. It was a big WIN!
Daniel has helped me see where my money is actually going and provided a path toward success. Now that I know what jobs are profitable, I know where to put my marketing dollars and which types of jobs to get out of. As a fairly new business, it has been a huge blessing to have Daniel and Melissa help us along the way."
"I like how Daniel compares my business financials to the benchmark groups. This helps me understand where I am in my business, and what direction I need to go. Before I would just check my bank account to know if I had money. Now I know what my profit margins are and the health of my business."
"What I really like about what Daniel does is tracking key performance indicators. Being able to know what my marketing sources are the best, so I can adjust accordingly. Daniel also cleaned up my financial statements and chart of accounts so I can easily understand where I'm at financially, where before it was a mess."
"Daniel has been my accountant as my painting business has experienced explosive growth this last year. As you know, when you are in a growth cycle, you become vulnerable to all sorts of issues, from tax planning to job overspending to cash flow problems. Daniel has been instrumental in setting up our finances to protect cash flow, provide for growth expenses, and make sure we don't get a nasty surprise come tax time! If your painting business needs someone to help you protect your profits and guard your financial future, then Daniel can do all of this while providing you with the peace of mind that comes with an expert watching out for you. Thanks so much being in our corner!"
"It's great to understand where I stand financially at any point in the year instead of solely relying on my bank balance. Plus, being able to proactively react to lowering my tax liability through tax planning has saved me thousands of dollars this year."
