Good Sense Accounting helps small businesses, individuals and nonprofits realize their vision with accounting, bookkeeping, tax preparation and business planning. Based in Issaquah, we’re close to Bellevue, Sammamish and Seattle.

It all starts with a vision–knowing what you hope to achieve with your life, business and finances. With your direction and purpose set, we help map out the quickest route that will get you where you want to go. We help you realize your vision!

Bookkeeping is the tool we use to manage your progress toward achieving your vision. We watch the books and keep you up-to-date with the information you need. That frees you up to do what you do best.

Managing your taxes can increase the speed at which you achieve your vision. Tax planning and proper application of the tax law will reduce the amount of taxes assessed. We help you pay as little tax as is legally required.

Nonprofits are more difficult to manage than businesses because they deal with the vision of many individuals: donors, volunteers, staff and the people you are serving. We help you manage your nonprofit to serve the goals of everyone involved.
