Choose BASS For Your Accounting

BASS Accounting creates easy-to-understand reports that are available to you via remote access anytime you want. These reports are simple, effective and provide your business with all the info you need to plan and budget for growth.


Focused on growth for your businesses

Because of our knowledge, understanding, and experience with remote accounting, we produce a simple and effective approach that allows you to maintain control and have full access to our system.

As much as fifteen years ago, outsourced accounting was still a relatively new idea, and it may have truly concerned some if not most people then. But with so many advances in secure technology over the years, the remote management of matters as confidential and important as your business’s finances are all but completely free of any concern.

Keeping you in the loop.

Complete Access

With full and complete access to files, you can jump on the server at any time to see reports, invoices, or anything else you care to check in on.

Easy to Use

In fact, our software and remote management is so user friendly that some of our clients use our services to do a portion of the work themselves, while leaving the remainder of it for us.
