With more than 35 years' experience in bookkeeping, income tax preparation and trust accounting, X’Lance Bookkeeping Ltd is well qualified to assist small business owners as well as individuals with their bookkeeping, planning and income tax needs.

From our head office in Penticton, B.C., we serve all communities from the U.S. border at Osoyoos to the north side of Kelowna. In these difficult times, small businesses and individuals need to carefully plan their finances to ensure that both their business and personal endeavors remain viable.

When dealing with finances, stress is a huge factor. By engaging professional help, our clients can relax in the knowledge that they know exactly where they stand and where they are going. When it comes to bookkeeping and taxes, we provide the resources for a broad range of services.

Our Office or Yours

Sometimes, our clients want us to do some of the bookkeeping functions in their offices.  In those cases, our staff will work on site to either work on the books or assist your staff when they encounter difficulties.  Experienced in both QuickBooks® and Sage 50 Accounting, we are able to provide any support needed.

Our pricing is based on the complexity and amount of time required.  Normally, we project the time and expertise required and quote on a flat rate basis.  Using this method, our clients know exactly how much their bookkeeping costs will be for the next year.



We specialize in serving small business owners with offsite bookkeeping services.  Using the latest technology, we are able to fill owners' needs for bookkeeping at a reasonable price.


Our technological advances will enable you to have the advantage of immediate bookkeeping services, without the employee payroll and associated costs.    A monthly contract fee keeps your bookkeeping costs constant regardless of the hours required by staff.


Business owners/managers need to spend time in making decisions and ensuring their staffs are producing profit earning products or services.  That’s why the daily bookkeeping needs of the company should not be taking up valuable leadership or production time.  Power in the business world is knowledge, especially financial knowledge!


Good bookkeeping practices keep you up to date and on track, enabling the decision-making process.  Our systems will make you aware of your profitability or identify those warning signs of potential financial problems ahead.
