Announcement: Certified Bookkeeper

Jill Flint earned her designation as a Certified Bookkeeper from the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers in October of 2012.

Founded in 1987 and with a current membership of 30,000, the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) certifies bookkeepers who meet high, national standards.

In order to become certified, she was required to have 3,000 hours of experience in performing bookkeeping services, to pass a four-part national examination which included testing in the areas of depreciation, payroll, inventory, internal controls, error correction and adjusting entries and to sign a Code of Professional Ethics.

Jill has been employed by New Business Directions since December of 2006. She completed the QuickBooks® Certified User program in May of 2008 and has been helping small businesses with their bookkeeping needs since 1980. Over these many years she has worked with many area CPA’s and is presently an active Board Member and former Treasurer of the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust and now serves as Treasurer of the Pequawket Foundation.

“Most bookkeepers learn on the job” says Rhonda Rosand, CPA and owner of New Business Directions. “They are self-taught and have no formal training. This certification demonstrates a proven knowledge of accounting concepts and a higher level of competence. We are proud to have Jill as part of our team.”
