Regardless of your industry, bookkeeping is crucial to your business’s success. Proper bookkeeping effects nearly every aspect of a company, from managing cash flows, to financial reporting, to paying taxes, to curating the data used to make strategic decisions. Without a strong foundation in bookkeeping you are flying your business blind – the implications of which can prove disastrous.

Read on to learn more.
Maintaining the General Ledger
The general ledger is a record of all of a business’s transactions, organized by type. It provides the data required to create financial statements such as the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows, and enables a business to review its financial transactions and properly pay taxes. Without properly maintaining a general ledger, a business is unable to engage in the most basic bookkeeping, accounting, and strategic planning processes. We can manage your ledger on your behalf, providing updates on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. Our financial expertise enables us to do so with the utmost accuracy, providing you with clean, accurate, and timely data about your business.

We can come in and create order out of chaos. We’ll get all of your bookkeeping data into your software and enable you to analyze your financials, pay taxes, or do whatever it is that you need to do.

Accounts Payable & Receivable
Accounts payable is the recording and management of bills sent to you by vendors, and accounts receivable is the recording and management of invoices you send to customers. Properly managing AP and AR ensures that you pay your bills on time and get paid on time. We can just record your bills and invoices and let you handle the payments, or we can manage the entire process start to finish. We can just do the AP and leave the AR to you, or just do the AR and leave the AP to you, whatever helps you the most.
Bank & Credit Card Reconciliations
Reconciling your bank and credit card accounts is the process of confirming that the activity in your accounting system matches the activity in your cash accounts. This is an essential part of the bookkeeping process and a crucial step to creating accurate bookkeeping data. We can setup your bookkeeping software to download your transactions directly from your bank accounts, manually download and then upload the data, or input the transactions based on your monthly statements. Whatever the method, we can keep your books accurate and up to date. Pro Tip: don’t fall months behind, start reconciling your accounts today so you’re not scrambling later in the year.
Managing payroll involves interfacing with your payroll provider to ensure your employees get paid the proper amounts at the proper times, that both the employer and employee tax obligations are met, and that the data is properly entered into your accounting software. Whether you use ADP, Gusto, PayChex, Intuit, or any other provider, we can manage this for you in an efficient, effective, and timely manner. Needless to say, getting payroll done properly is an important part of any business.
