I love working with Kerilyn at Derby Financial, she is very communicative, organized and she gives me peace of mind!  As a small business owner, to know that my accounts are organized and balanced correctly is the best feeling!  When it comes to tax time, she is extremely helpful in communicating with my CPA to make sure they have all the information needed, getting my employee’s W-2s and subcontractor 1099s out and more, allowing me to concentrate on what I do best!  I don’t ever want to go back to handling it all myself, my time is better served growing my business!

Kerilyn is a life saver! I am not a financially minded individual and I started to feel that I was in over my head with the accounting for my growing interior design business. She helped make sense of all the accounts and created an effective way to bill my clients and keep up to date on all my finances. She has been a dream to work with and I highly recommend her services.

Charlotte Business Owner

Every small business owner experiences the same moment when they realize that they are better utilized in focusing on the business of whatever it is they do. I celebrate the day I turned my financial day to day operations over to Derby Financial. Kerilyn keeps everything running smoothly, catches errors before they become issues, and makes preparing my end of year taxes seamless.

Charlotte Business Owner

I brought Kerilyn at Derby Financial Consulting on so I could take a three-month maternity leave with my third child. I’m a small business owner of 15+ employees. Kerilyn quickly learned the business-critical duties I requested her to perform; namely accounts payable and payroll. During my leave, if there was an error, she humbly admitted it and resolved it expediently. If there was missing data, she worked with the necessary personnel to obtain it. For the first time, I was able to be completely out of the business and gratefully I didn’t have to worry about whether something was missed or done incorrectly. After returning from maternity leave, she’s assisted in a consulting capacity and helped refine several processes. She has a strong work ethic. I highly recommend Derby Financial Consulting.
