In 2015, Equitable Bookkeeping was started by Philip A. Melton II in Indianapolis, Indiana with the vision of helping other small businesses manage their books, giving the owners more time to focus on strengthening their competitive advantages. He also wants to help those owners transition to bookkeeping in the cloud, giving them the freedom to access their business's finances from just about anywhere.

Philip has several years of bookkeeping and accounting experience within the hospitality and property management industries. He has a love for working with people and numbers and Equitable Bookkeeping gives him the opportunity to help people with numbers.

Philip earned a bachelor's degree in finance from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business in Indianapolis. He is also both a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor and a Xero Certified Advisor.
While he was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, Philip grew up in Chicago and Gary, Indiana. He is a fitness buff and a sports fanatic. His favorite teams are the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox.

In his free time, Philip enjoys reading, weightlifting and spending time with his lovely daughter, Aaliyah.
