"After frustration trying to straighten out my QB's to generate accurate financial reports from QBO, I decided to seek out professional assistance from a CPA. During my search for an accountant on Intuit Proadvisor link, I was immediately drawn to Les's profile by his 5 star review. After reading his profile and many positive reviews, I felt confident that he would be able to help me get my QB's in order. He responded to my request for help very quickly. We scheduled a phone conversation to discuss specifics and from that point on, I knew Les was experienced and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated his written progress updates, which contained clear and precise explanations throughout his time spent completing the QBO clean up. In addition to cleaning up my QBO accounts, Les also provided me with beneficial tax advice. I recommend Les to anyone in need of an experienced accountant who is polite, understanding, knowledgeable, and professional." (Contractor using QuickBooks Online) November 2017

He set up an apointment for a saturday moring. we spent 6 hrs in my office that day geting my books inline and correct. Very helpfull and and he knows his line of work. This was the first time with Lester and now i will only use him, highly recomened and polite." (Construction contractor use QuickBooks Online) July 2017

"I reached out to Lester in the heart of the busiest time of the year for a CPA. His response was prompt. He was extremely knowledgable and had answers for all my question. Lester set up my quickbooks making many modifications to the accounting software to make it more efficient and accurate for my business. I am looking forward to a lasting business relationship." (Contractor using QuickBooks Online) March 2017

"Very good tax advisor. Handles issues with perfection. Has great knowledge regarding various aspects of quick books. Would highly recommend." July 2016

"Lester is a highly experienced professional. He met us at our home and was kind and patient with us every step of the way. His follow up is impeccable. Lester took a big burden off our shoulders so we could concentrate on other things that needed to be taken care of. We will be using him in the future. We highly recommend Lester to anyone needing QB setup or business tax advice."

"Les has been very careful and thorough in his work for us and has taught us how to, for example, restructure our Quickbook categories so that our Profit and Loss statement is easier to understand quickly. He has helped us, another example, manage our Accounts Receivable more accurately for tax optimization. He’s always there when we have questions, most recently, he responded immediately in some detail from another continent during his vacation. We feel like we’re in very good hands."

"Lester is a life saver. He was extremely quick to respond to our initial request for his assistance. His help has allowed me to focus more on my ACTUAL business and worry less about putting the right digit in the right box."

"Les has been nothing but a life saver. He has helped us through the past months to set up our quickbooks account, tutorials and guidance on how to use it, and has continued to support us with any questions or concerns that we may have. He has also been a joy to work with and is very professional. He definitely knows his tax laws and even takes the time to break things down for us so we understand our obligations as a company. We plan to continue this relationship with Les and will recommend him to others who are in need of a good CPA."

"Les has been a valuable resource for our business and for me personally. He responds quickly to any request for tax or accounting support and takes the time to explain concepts so that I can learn from his expertise. Over the years, he has offered me several useful QuickBooks tips and has provided exceptional advice on how to use QuickBooks reports to “explain” accounting to my employer. Les is both knowledgeable and professional; it’s been my pleasure to work with him."

"Les has just been fantastic to deal with over the years. And especially this year when I had MANY additional complications due to a residential move to another state while keeping my insurance business in Pennsylvania. There were many things to be ironed out with regard to payroll within QuickBooks. Les was patient, prompt, and always thinks outside the box to minimize taxes in a legal, legitimate and conservative fashion. Without his advice this year I would have paid MUCH MORE tax than necessary."

Lester Bahr has provided me with accurate tax filings along with helpful business advice for years. Lester is very knowledgeable and listens carefully to all my questions and always provides very clear answers. His extensive experience and patience has enabled me to feel confident in my record keeping skill in planning for my future. I am very pleased with his service and would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a CPA. Even though I moved to another state Lester has remained my CPA. He is the best!  (Lisa F.)

Thank you for your compassion, your honesty, wisdom and everything you helped us with." July 2010

"We needed to convert our accounting system from MAS90 to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. These conversions can be very complicated but Les made it seemless. He knows exactly what steps to take and in what order which is very important. He told me what information I needed to compile from MAS90 and helped me to set up the new system the right way from the start. Les is the only person I would use for software conversions. I couldn't have done it without him." D.G.

He has saved me from managing a ton of speadsheets and fiddling around with a paper checkbook. His knowledge is only trumped by his patience - I must have asked him a million questions!"

I recommend Lester to small and large business.” May 26, 2009 (S.C. Commercial business broker/realtor)

"I came to this Pro Advisor very confused about how to use Quick Books. I was using it for my business for ivoices and accounts receivable but learned from him that I was actually not using Quick Books in the way that I should for my business. He was extremely helpful by taking my computer data and input into the correct categories that were the most useful for my financial needs. He also sat down with me and took me through every step on how to bill my clients, accept payments, reconcile my checkbook, as well as other important information I needed to know. I left his office very confident knowing the correct way to use Quick Books for my business. He was so very professional and patient with me. I couldn't thank him enough for helping me to fully understand Quick Books."

"With Mr. Bahr's assistance, I was able to safely merge 18+ years of data (and the input of several other bookkeepers before me) into a more streamlined and efficient Chart of Accounts, Through his tutelage I have also learned many shortcuts in the program and better ways to use QB to make my work easier and to benefit my company. We have taken each aspect of QB and broken it down to see how we could best use it here. Soon, we will take on the budgeting process (this has always been done by a board member on spreadsheets and was seldom part of the fiscal year end data). I worked alone in QB for nine years before I came to this job and thanks to Mr. Bahr I feel my knowledge of the software (and basic accounting and bookkeeping practices in general) has increased exponentially in the last six months!"

" Les, I forgot to tell you how grateful I am to you. Thank you so much for your expertise. You have been very efficient and I certainly will be recommending your services" (Nancy K, Bushkill PA, office support services)
