MacDonald Accounting Services


Accounting support for your business

We specialize in outsourced CFO, bookkeeping, accounting and QuickBooks consulting services for the small business and nonprofit community of Solano County and the San Francisco Bay Area.  We also offer personal and business financial coaching.  


Affordable outsourced CFO services

Many small businesses are in an early stage, with a limited budget, or just need one-time consultation services with a Chief Financial Officer (CFO).  We can assist you with your short or long-term needs.  

Financial statement preparation and tax planning

Even the brightest business owner may need assistance when asked to present financial reports to investors, banks, or to their internal staff.  MacDonald Accounting Services can help recommend and provide presentation strategies to meet your needs.

one-on-one financial coaching - for individuals and businesses

Even the best business owner may find himself neglecting his personal, household finances. So many are in debt and making only minimum monthly payments to credit cards, student loans, and car loans.

How can financial coaching help you?  A financial coach can help you walk through challenges, emergencies and goals by assessing your situation and offering you objective guidance toward building your financial plan or budget.  The types of situations we help with include: 

  • Getting out of debt

  • Creating your household budget

  • Working with collectors

  • Reviewing the basics of a strong financial foundation (including insurance and wills)

  • Planning for children's college

  • Making a plan to save for retirement

We do not sell any retirement, insurance or legal products and do not offer investment advice.  What we do is help you get on the right track.
