Accountants by Day

Well, to be honest, we’re accountants (with superpowers) by night, too, but we’re more than your standard yearly tax preparation checkup. At McNeely & McNeely CPA’s we’re a business owner’s utility belt; from payroll solutions to budgeting, strategic planning to leadership and management training, we have customizable solutions to fulfill your business needs. And, yes, we’ll even fight the occasional IRS fire for you.

We understand the importance of small businesses to the American economy. We also understand how difficult it is to run one, because, hey, we’ve been there: you’re the janitor, the manager, the cashier, and the CEO, but you don’t have to be your own accountant; that’s why we’re here. McNeely and McNeely has scalable solutions, no matter what size your company or your company’s wallet.

Client Portal

Offsite Access

  • We will host your QuickBooks company file on a secure, reliable server.
  • You will have 24/7 access to your data using a Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection.
  • It’s your file. Should you ever, for whatever reason (no good ones we can think of), need to move your accounting in-house or elsewhere, you can take your file and go. It is your world, we are just playing in it.
  • Shared workload. We can do as much or as little of your work as you want and you can do the rest. Every solution is different based on what you need.

Contact us for a free analysis and proposal.


We will work to craft a custom solution that is just right for your business.
  • Just need payroll services? Great.
  • Need help with tracking and paying your bills? We can do that.
  • Need your customers to be billed on a consistent, timely, accurate basis? Fine.
  • How about periodic coaching sessions with expert advice on reading your financials, looking for trends, growing your business, planning for the future, and minimizing taxes?
    You got it.
  • Want someone to do everything but take care of inventory accounting? That’s not a problem.
  • Want us to bring a baseball bat and ride with a guy name Guido to help you collect past due accounts receivable?
    …that sounds like a problem.

The point is you need a unique solution for your one-of-a-kind business. I don’t know about you, but I hate going to sites where you find nothing about pricing. The following table can give you a general idea. We will work together to agree on a fair monthly fee based on the size of your business and whether you just want the chocolate cream pie or want a side of okra, too.


OUR “NO METRONOME” POLICY. We build unlimited e-mail support into our Premium and Full Service proposals. We want to help you be successful. Most people hesitate to contact professionals for fear of the metronome in the background clicking off expensive billable minutes. Not here. With our set monthly pricing you get no surprises.
