People and Numbers are Our Jam
Not all businesses need a full-time or even part-time staff hire to manage their books. However, they do need someone with experience to help them keep track of their bottom line; put together clear financials for tax or investment purposes; and perform historical clean up when being busy has taken a toll on keeping clean books.
We rather enjoy turning what you may feel is a financial mess into financial clarity.

Meet Cat Arnaez, Head Bookkeeper in Charge
I’m probably everything not typical about who you’d picture a bookkeeper to be, but I might be exactly who your business needs.
Before starting Business to Business Bookkeeping, I had a hand in company finances across many career roles. While I’ve always had a natural knack for analyzing numbers, I’m also an artist and storyteller at heart who sings, writes songs, and creates poetry. As a result, I see the financials of any business as more than profits and losses. The numbers tell stories of a company’s priorities, growth, and movement.
In 2014, I had a realization that many small businesses are unaware of their financials, beyond the black and white numbers, to what those numbers are actually saying about the health, direction, and goals of their companies. So, when I started Business to Business Bookkeeping, I set out with the mission to equip people with the financial knowledge they need to be delivered through caring and customized bookkeeping support.
Partnering with my community and pursuing constant growth fuel me daily in my work. I’m a proud member of several local organizations, such as the Valrico-Fishhawk Chamber of Commerce, Working Women of Tampa Bay, and Hearts and Heels Networking Group. I am also currently serving a 4-year term with my neighborhood’s CDD (Comunity Development District). Who knows? You may see my name in a local government election someday. Community matters immensely to me.
With an A.S. degree in Accounting, a certification as a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor, and years of experience, I’m ready to help business owners set up bookkeeping systems that free them to run the most fun parts of their businesses.
