Small Business Accounting

As a small business owner,  your  time is better spent running the business than keeping the day to day books. We can help train your staff or outside bookeeper...or in some cases,  take care of your books for you so you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits!

Here is a sample of services we can provide each month or quarter :

These tasks form the solid foundation of your small business accounting system. You can customize the package of services you receive by adding payroll, tax planning, tax preparation, or any of our other services.

 
Bank Reconciliation

Reconciling your business checking account each month allow us to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date.

Having us reconcile your account each month allows you to...

  • Identify lost checks or  lost deposits 
  • Know how your business is doing? You can't really know unless all accounts are reconciled and properly accounted for on your financial statement.
  • Protect yourself. By timely reconciling and promptly objecting to your bank about any unauthorized checks presented to your bank and paid by that bank, you can relieve your agency of responsibility for the shortfall and transfer the risk to the bank. This reason to reconcile alone should be enough. Crime exists.
  • Sleep Better. You will sleep more peacefully at night knowing your bank accounts are reconciled, in balance and that all escrow funds, accounts, checks and disbursed funds are properly accounted for.

 
Income Statement

An income statement, otherwise known as a profit and loss statement, basically adds an itemized list of all your revenues and subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or loss for the period.

An income statement allows you to...

  • Track revenues and expenses so that you can determine the operating performance of your business.
  • Helps you identify  expenses in  your business that are over-budget or under-budget.
  • Identify specific items that are causing unexpected expenditures. Like phone, fax, mail, or supply expenses.
  • Track dramatic increases in product returns or cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales.
  • Determine your income tax liability.

 
Balance Sheet

A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business' financial condition at a specific moment in time.

A balance sheet helps you...

  • Quickly get a handle on the financial strength and capabilities of your business.
     
  • Identify and analyze trends, particularly in the area of receivables and payables. For example, if your receivables cycle is lengthening, maybe you can collect your receivables more aggressively.
     
  • Determine if your business is in a position to expand.
     
  • Determine if your business can easily handle the normal financial ebbs and flows of revenues and expenses? 
     
  • Determine if you need to take immediate steps to bolster cash reserves?
     
  • Determine if your business has been slowing down payables to forestall an inevitable cash shortage?

Balance sheets, along with income statements, are the most basic elements in providing financial reporting to potential lenders such as banks, investors, and vendors who are considering how much credit to grant you.

 
Maintaining a Clean General Ledger

The general ledger is the core of your company's financial records. These records constitute the central "books" of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.

Having us assist you with reviewing  your general ledger system allows you to hunt down any discrepancies such as double billings or any unrecorded payments. Once you idenfify any problems,  we can assist you with adjusting journal entries so your books are always accurate and kept in tip top shape.
