Thankfully, we found Marcia who helped us "clean up" our current QuickBooks® Premier file and start a new QuickBooks® file that suites exactly how we run our business. Marcia listened to our very complex needs that includes retail (QuickBooks® POS), Wholesale, Festivals and the extremely difficult world of online sales. She helped us create all
new account categorizes and classes that have made our QuickBooks® data much more useful to us and to our bankers when obtaining financing. Marcia has continued to help guide and train us on both QuickBooks® and the art of bookkeeping, helping us to keep our books organized, efficient, and professional at an affordable cost. read lessMichael P.

She has straightened out bank statements, vendor statements, sales tax, payroll information, and other accounting errors for us. She has always explained what went wrong and how we could avoid having it happen again. She has guided us with QuickBooks® from initial purchase through each update over the years. Our business is unique and doesn’t fit into a “mold”, so her input has truly been invaluable. Whenever we have needed help, she has answered the call promptly. In business, it is nice (and refreshing) to be able to count on someone to call you back and help you through something as soon as possible. Marcia will do that for you. Many times, Marcia has suggested a better way to do things and it has always been helpful. Her suggestions have saved us time and money, exactly what you would like a good bookkeeper to do. She takes her bookkeeping to the next level. You could get a bookkeeper to just do your books for you, or you could get Marcia and have an advocate for your business, helping it to grow and succeed. read lessNancy R.

Although we had Quickbooks, we really did not know how to use it efficiently. Marcia help us upgrade to QB's 2013 (and got us a great deal on the software, too). She trained us on all aspects of QB's, very patiently, I might add. She cleaned up our accounts, straightened out item lists and merged customer and vendor accounts for us, then taught us how to do it ourselves. We now have a much greater understanding of not only Quickbooks, but our own company. Most importantly, Marcia is accessible. She will be there when you need her. She returns calls promptly and resolves problems quickly. She really inherited a mess from us. She had to reconcile months of bank statements and credit card statements. We could never have done what she did, and she did it quickly. We highly recommend Marcia for your bookkeeping and Quickbooks needs. read less

Not only did she answer the phone, but without even being in front of her computer could navigate me around Quickbooks and successfully help me to create the report necessary for our Church. Some of the short cuts she taught me via the phone conversation, will save me so much time. I'm so grateful for not only her knowledge, but her willingness to assist me in my hour of need. I fully intend to continue this business relationship and will recommend her services to anyone who I come in contact with that utilizes Quickbooks, or has accounting needs. read less

I have been thrilled with the fantastic support that Marcia has provided each and every time I contact her! I originally contacted her for advice on how to revise our invoicing process and by the time we ended our first session she had completely re-created our accounting system in QB. Her vast accounting knowledge allows her to quickly assess the most effective way to set up QB. Most importantly, she has the patience to fully explain every thing that she does. read less

After being placed in an uncomfortable predicament, I was faced with the problems of relearning the QuickBooks program and having to trust someone again. Marcia made me feel comfortable and went above and beyond anything I expected her to help me with. She helped me reorganize my format so that it was more understandable, not only for me but for our bonding company as well. She was able to explain why something was not balancing correctly, rather than simply doing it for me. After encountering harmful files on my computer, Marcia went out of her way to connect with the QuickBooks Technical Department. After a short time, the files were found and removed. This helped me avoid missed time without my QuickBooks file as well as avoiding a great financial cost. Marcia gives me the confidence I need to do this on my own. I have slowly begun to master certain aspects of the program, yet she is patient enough to go over the same section as many times as I need. She is literally just a phone call away! I can honestly say that Marcia has made an enormous difference for our company over the last two months and I highly recommend her to everyone and anyone in need of a QuickBooks-Pro. No matter how big or small your situation is Cornerstone Bookkeeping and Accounting is more than qualified to help you learn and succeed. read less

I never fully understood all of the features and benefits, of Quick Books, until Marcia tutored me. I am still, extremely impressed on her knowledge and understanding, of not only Quick Books, but also her Bookkeeping and Accounting Knowledge as well. My old version of Quick Books was very out of hand, and when I contacted Marcia, we agreed that I needed to upgrade to the new version, and reconstruct my Quick Books. Marcia started at the beginning, by giving me a quick class on the fundamentals of accounting, which made everything more clear and easier to understand. Once we had everything setup and in place, I found the convenience of having Marcia connect to my Quick Books through Remote Access invaluable in her assisting me with any hurdles I encountered. In summary, Marcia Cardone is very thorough, patient, and understanding. I do highly recommend Marcia for any services when it comes to Bookkeeping, Accounting, or Quick Books. And her awesome personality makes her perfect for the job. read less

At the time, we were living in... read moreWe found Marcia in 2013 through the QuickBooks® ProAdvisor site on Intuit®'s website. At the time, we were living in Pennsylvania. Due to our circumstances from living abroad, we needed to back-file taxes from 2005 through 2010 for our corporation. There were only three ProAdvisor in the area where we lived. Marcia was the first to respond of the two that were contacted. I had read the comments on the ProAdvisor site that were available and Marcia's were very positive; the others didn't seem to have any comments nor feedback that I recall from that time period.
The challenge was this: Because we had lived abroad and had a foreign corporation because of self-employment, foreign taxes, foreign accounting records to be adjusted for US tax purposes, along with exchange rates, and foreign software to maintain those records, it leaves one to ask: Who's going to work with us?
Well, the answer to that question above was Marcia Cardone. Marcia worked with our QuickBooks® Canadian Edition and also worked in conjunction with the accounting firm we had contracted with to help with our foreign taxes for US reporting purposes. Marcia met that challenge head-on, especially with working with Canadian Edition of QuickBooks®. She worked to adjust our records based on the recommendations provided by the CPA firm to have our records adjusted and cleaned up.
To this day, even though we no longer live abroad and do have an S-Corp, Marcia continues to do our QuickBooks® work once a year. For the outstanding knowledge, service, and years of experience Marcia has, there is no reason to go find anyone else.
We are so thankful that Marcia was willing to take on what needed to be done three years ago. She brought much order and sanity to an otherwise insane, unpredictable, and worrisome time period. read lessSteve T.

After doing our own bookkeeping and taxes many times over, it was evident we were in need of someone to perform a review of our books and do adjustments so that our entries properly conformed for presentation and GAAP. Marcia is quick, accurate, and very competent. She was the first one to respond out of the three inquiries that were put out and on a Sunday no less. She's done work for us on a couple of occasions with QuickBooks. I would HIGHLY recommend Marcia to anyone who needs QuickBooks or accounting assistance. read less
