Firm Profile

Business Accounting Systems, P.C., is a South Jersey Public Accounting Firm located in West Deptford, New Jersey that has been providing excellence in servicing the accounting, payroll, and tax needs of independently owned small businesses throughout the Tri-State area.

Our firm is licensed by the New Jersey State Board of Accountancy and was founded in 1971 by Leon A. Elwell, P.A., E.A. and continues to be operated today by L. Scott Elwell, VP.


Since 1971, the experienced professionals at BAS have been helping small businesses in the South Jersey and Tri-State areas, with a range of affordable services. We offer our clients a rare combination of complete accounting services, detailed automated payroll, tax planning and tax preparation, as well as unlimited business advice and consultations.


Our staff of highly qualified accountants, bookkeepers, data entry processors, payroll production and support personnel are seasoned professionals committed to delivering quality and cost-effective financial, accounting, tax and payroll services.


At BAS, we found small business owners appreciate the convenience of having accounting, payroll, and tax services all under one roof. Your most valuable assets are your time and your people – small businesses should focus on growing their business, not working on accounting, taxes and payroll.

BAS developed the “SET FIXED FEE accounting service concept.” Our services are billed on a fixed-fee basis, so you never pay extra for phone calls and meetings – at our office or yours!


Your monthly package of services will be designed to fit your unique business needs and can include:
