Solution-Focused Thinking

Our solution-focused approach helps business owners move forward by shifting their focus on growth and outsourcing their bookkeeping and payroll to a trusted partner.

Founded by Sharon Epple in 1986, Benchmark was one of the very first woman-owned businesses to offer outsourced, computerized administrative support to small business owners in the Baltimore region.  Since then, Benchmark has grown from a one-woman enterprise focused on general administrative assistant services into a thriving full-service bookkeeping and payroll firm with a staff of experienced dedicated professionals.

The Benchmark team is experienced, highly-skilled, and committed to providing clients with the confidential, accurate, and efficient service our clients have come to expect.

Work Smarter, Not Harder.

With over 34 years in business, you can trust us with all of your bookkeeping and payroll needs.

Let us handle your bookkeeping and payroll so that you can focus on what you do best – growing your business.

Benchmark helps business owners focus on working ON their businesses as opposed to working IN their businesses, enabling them to focus on developing and growing their business.  Our team is experienced, highly-skilled, and committed to providing clients with the confidential, accurate, and efficient service our clients have come to expect.
