About Us

Laura NelsonLaura Nelson is founder and owner of A-List Accounting which serves the accounting needs of micro-businesses, consultants, start-ups, entrepreneurs, condominium associations, non-profits, and Ecommence. She takes pride in creating a customized accounting solution for each client, based on their individual needs. Laura offers bookkeeping, payroll, tax return preparation services, QuickBooks consulting and training, advisory, and Xero consulting and training.

Some of the recent projects we have completed with clients include streamlining a pool service company’s invoicing process which boosted cash flow, saved one client $3,000 per month in telephone charges, transitioned a company from older accounting technologies to modern accounting systems where they saved thousands of dollars on paper costs alone, discovered $800,000 being embezzled by a manufacturing employee, worked with a construction company to capture job costs to help them better analyze their profitability, and re-structured QuickBooks and a rental company reservation system for better organization and pricing information.

Laura also taught QuickBooks classes for the local Small Business Development Center. She currently offers one on one or group classes for Xero, QuickBooks and accounting basics. She is a member of the Florida Institute of CPAs and the American Institute of CPAs (although not a CPA, she is qualified to sit the exam), the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers, and the National Association of Tax Professionals.
