Stanberry, MO – Kelly Ann Wilmes is opening a new business in Stanberry, MO called “W5 Accounting, LLC.” She says, “The two main reasons for wanting to start my own business is to provide a wide array of accounting services at reasonable rates, while still having the flexibility I need for my family.”  Kelly has 23 years of public accounting experience.  Some of the services Kelly will provide are Business and Individual Taxes, Monthly Accounting Services, Payroll, and QuickBooks Consulting.

Kelly is excited about the software she is using.  “About my QuickBooks ProAdvisor,” she says, “QuickBooks is a streamlined accounting software.  By being a ProAdvisor, I have the tools and training needed to get the most out of the software.  I am able to help in all areas including setup, training, payroll and consulting.  If QB is being used correctly, it is definitely a great asset to your business.”

What does she like most about accounting? “I would have to say problem solving.”  She adds, “I also love the way it all ties together from checks and balances, to reconciling, to summarizing it all in to comprehensive reporting.  The fundamentals of the way it all flows together and balances is pretty intriguing.”

Another aspect of her business is helping those in the rural community.  Kelly says, “I definitely enjoy working with small businesses as well as getting small businesses up and going.  This includes filing the appropriate state forms, filing for an LLC or preparing and S Election, setting up payroll, setting up and an accounting system correctly that will prepare accurate financial reports.” 

Kelly used the services of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation’s Keli Morris to get ideas on how to proceed with advertising and building her client base. She was connected to this great resource through Tara Wilmes.
