WHAT WE DO

Full-Service Accounting, Tax Preparation, and CFO Services

We know this stuff is overwhelming, and that’s exactly why we’re here. You’ll have a single expert—a real person—managing your account from Day 1. Best of all, you can be as involved or hands-off as you’d like.

One Dedicated Accountant

Your expert accountant keeps an eagle eye on your books and is here for your questions. No extra charge for that phone call or email. Ever.

Your Tech Managed

Tech is key, and so is managing it well. We keep an eye on your integrations so you know they’re functioning exactly as they should.

Hands-Off or Hands-In

Some people just want the bigger picture, some people want the details. We adapt to you, letting you be as involved (or not) as you want.

WHO WE HELP

Supporting Small Businesses

Open Bookkeeping is a full-service accounting firm based in Austin, Texas. We found our footing here and have since expanded across the country. We love serving small businesses in any industry, whether it’s fine wine or mini golf. You do what you do best, we’ll take care of your books.

Small businesses are the heart and soul of a community. I love serving entrepreneurs because I know I’m helping the neighborhood stay vibrant.

FOUNDER, MARI RAMIREZ

Our Story

An Austin business grounded in community

Mari Ramirez is a staple in the Austin, TX business community. For over 17 years, she’s worked in public accounting, serving small and mid-sized businesses with financial metrics, budgeting, accounting, bookkeeping, tax planning, and achieving long-term growth.

Mari loves working with small businesses because of their impact on the community, something she’s invested in as well. In her own community, Mari is a frequent volunteer and has served on several nonprofit boards. She received the Humanitarian of The Year award from Texas A&M International University, served as Treasurer for both the Foundation for Learning and Youth Travel Education and the Gwenievere Mann Foundation, served as President of Georgetown Art Works, and has helped many organizations file for 501(c)3 status with the IRS.

Mari loves sharing her knowledge to empower business owners to succeed. She wrote a chapter on financial empowerment in “The Better Business Book, Volume 2,” and frequently speaks at events and panels for entrepreneurs. In addition to running Open Bookkeeping, Mari is mother of four with kids ranging from ages 20 to 2, and is one of the 10 founders of Lark & Owl Booksellers, the only indie bookstore in Williamson County.
