Tremendous service and a great business. They were able to take on a new client during their busy season for a book clean-up for two businesses. The work was done immediately and the office stayed in contact with me constantly while the project was being completed. I highly recommend Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates.


I really appreciate the personal service and care that Tampa Bay Accounting did for me and my corporations. I really feel like Monica took the time to evaluate our situation to make sure that our returns were done right.


TBA has helped me with my business more than I could ever imagine. These ladies are amazing! They have helped me with my taxes, payroll, insurance, and even advertising!


Greetings! Kudos to Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates. Our association has been working with Michelle and Monica on monthly reconciliations and setting up of QuickBooks On-Line. They are knowledgeable, professional and personable and a pleasure to work with. Like any small business we need accounting advice from time to time and have been pleased with our relationship with Tampa Bay Accounting.


These ladies are awesome! If you need help organizing your books, accounting help, anything with Quickbooks — call them. They will get you straightened out!


Michelle is excellent and always answers my questions. We have used Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates for tax work for about 5 years and are very happy with her services. I would recommend Michelle and her staff to any business needing tax work. She offers an array of services and is very knowledgeable in helping small businesses.!


We have a small pool business and was frustrated with our CPA. We went to Tampa Bay Accounting and Associate for help and to solve all our problems that was left for us. Monica, Michelle and Kathy called the IRS and spend hours on the phone and got results. If you get notices from the IRS and have no idea what to do, we advise you call a small firm who is compassionate and cares about small business and not a CPA that your too small to matter.


Provided assistance with QuickBooks making sure that our organization is entering deposits and completing banking tasks that are in compliance with typical accounting best practices Michelle Velez and her team from Tampa Bay Accounting & Associates came to our office and met with our Executive Director (ED). She and her staff were courteous, professional and very helpful. They answered all of our questions and we feel reassured that our accounts are in good hands. Typically, their company helps us submit our monthly sales tax to the Department of Revenue but since today was the first day of our new fiscal year, we thought it would be a good idea to ensure that we were abiding by accounting best practices for our non-profit organization. Thankfully, Michelle’s team was there to make sure that everything went smoothly and noted recommendations for change where applicable. We’re grateful for our relationship with Tampa Bay Accounting & Associates!

Michelle and her staff are amazing. I had no idea what to do with my bookkeeping. Let’s say I didn’t even try to organize anything.

Michelle & her team are saving my small business! She took over my accounts from a bookkeeper that I assumed had everything in order. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

She has made it easier for me to sleep at night knowing that I do not have to handle tax stuff any more! Her personalized attention is very much appreciated because I know that she actually cares about the success of my business.

I do not give my tax responsibilities, paperwork and filings and thought any longer. Thank you Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates!!


I am a local Acupuncture Physician who has been using QuickBooks bookkeeping software for 6 years. I never took a class in how to use it properly. I just muddled through, figuring things out as I went, and making a mess of some others things. This year I finally decided it would be good to have it all cleaned up and perfect. So, I hired Katie. What she was able to do in the span of 5 hours (3 on one day and 2 on another) was amazing and wonderful.
I have a friend who went through this process several years ago with a different QuickBooks specialist who didn’t do the work herself. She only gave instructions to my friend on how to make all the necessary changes and charged for the instruction time. So the work took many, many hours longer, was more expensive, and caused my friend countless hours of frustration and time away from her family. This is one of the reasons I put the process off for so long. But Katie was very helpful, knowledgeable and thorough, and I am delighted! She came to my office, did the work herself, and asked me questions when things needed to be clarified. She also answered any questions I had about using QuickBooks. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for some QuickBooks clean up!


Outstanding service! Always respond to questions someone may have.  They get the job done as quickly as possible. They treat every client with respect and with a unique way. At their office, they maintain a very friendly atmosphere. They go out of their way and do above and beyond things to please the client.  Very knowledgeable regarding all aspect of accounting. Overall AMAZING!!!

This company is like my American Express…. I don’t leave home without it! Thanks guys!!


I have utilized the services of Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates and have been extremely satisfied with their professional approach to problem solving and their ability to deliver a quality job on time and within budget. I will definitely use them again in the future.


Michelle goes above and beyond to service their clients. Both are active in the community, making a difference in the lives of so many local business owners. Michelle is a very active member of the Clearwater Regional Chamber volunteering in all areas of the Chamber committees.


As a customer, I highly recommend the quality and affordable service offered by Michelle Velez. I was very satisfied with my experience and will use them again.


Our business is helping other businesses add sales, profits and value to their companies by helping them establish, develop and manage export operations, but we cannot recommend Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates.. because we would like to keep them all to ourselves. We have used Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates for our company, and our growing list of clients, for accounting, bookkeeping, taxation and payroll advice and services and we are continually delighted not only with their accuracy and attention to detail, but also the speed and value for money they provide.

If you want an accounting firm with fancy offices with a big reception area and conference rooms, then maybe Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates is not for you. If, like our company, you want top quality at a fair price, look no further than Michelle Vélez and her team. I am confident they save us (and our clients) more money than we spend with them.


We are extremely impressed by the customer service and knowledge that Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates has to offer.  As a growing business our needs are evolving and we have been able to get accurate information and guidance from Michelle which is hard to find. They always have a quick response to all of our questions and are extremely fair priced for their services. Will recommend to all that need a great accounting team!


As a small budget, non-profit, literacy organization, It is important for our Coalition to maintain financial responsibility and accountability. Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates provides us quality accounting services to ensure that we uphold our financial commitment to our stakeholders, supporters, and donors.


Professional and affordable for my business. Let’s me not worry about spending money or about tracking my money.


I have been working with Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates for over a year and their level of courtesy and general knowledge of business accounting, tax preparation and general financial solutions exceeds my expectations daily. I have complete confidence in Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates.


Excellent quick work. Love doing business with you.


Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates without question are the accountants who put their customers first. They are very professional and thorough and came through for me when I was under a great deal of pressure and a very limited time frame. They were presented with a neglected pile of papers and were able to identify, collate and turn them into cohesive easily read documentation as required. They completed the task required in far less time than I had expected and at less cost than some accounting firms charge for a consultation. I highly recommend this company for all accounting needs, they are Honest, Diligent, Fast, and are very fair with their costs and accurate with their time. I will be dealing with them for all accounting requirements and suggest that anyone reading this does the same. I am not in the habit of writing endorsements but feel that these people deserve great success, they will come through for you when you need it, and treat you more than fairly. How refreshing to find people that do what they say and deliver. If you need an accountant for anything big or small, don’t waste time or money anywhere else. Having been self-employed for over thirty years, Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates should be your go to accountant. I am happy to verify this statement should there be a need.


For the past three years, Tampa Bay Accounting and Associates has handled all of our tax needs. They are professional, reliable, and very knowledgeable. I would never trust anyone else with my tax needs.
