Desert Accounting LLC was started in 2005 to address a need in the market for skilled, responsive and affordable services.  I spent many years as a manager in field service, on production lines, and in retail stores I owned.  My world was budgets, staff, direct sales and P&L responsibilities.  I know well the value of the numbers and running blind without them.  I am familiar with inaccessible staff accountants, CPA firms I could not afford, and bookkeepers who did not get the job done.  Determined to help small business owners and meet an opportunity I returned to college, gained a major in accounting, and started Desert Accounting LLC.  It was started to provide services that were earlier unavailable to me, and it was started to deliver first class service, response and value.

Today we have clients with interests across the range of business activities, and we provide the range of services:  Data entry through payroll to financial statements and everything between.  We work in our office, on site, or use up-to-date technology to work remotely.  We are expert QuickBooks practitioners and will help with set up of programs and training.  If you are starting up or an established operation we can help. 

Our job is to give you a clear picture of your financial position, keep you compliant with regulatory agencies, and do it at affordable rates.

About Us

On the West side of the building is the iconic El Camino Real, The Royal Road, the 300 year old route used by Spanish explorers on their way from Mexico to Santa Fe.  It was also part of Route 66, the Main Street of America.  Established in 1926 Route 66 was one of the original routes within the U.S. Highway System.  It became the most well-known, running from Chicago through Bernalillo, to Santa Monica a distance of 2,500 miles.

Stop by and visit us, we are 5 minutes from I25, parking is easy. Applebee's and The Range Cafe are close by.
