Accounting

As a small business owner, your focus should be on running your business and driving profits, not managing your books. Let us handle your accounting, so you can concentrate on what you do best—growing your business.

How we do accounting

Each month or quarter we'll handles the essential tasks that form the backbone of your small business accounting system.

Bank Reconciliation

Reconciling your business checking account monthly keeps your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date. When we handle your monthly reconciliations, you benefit in several key ways:

  • Identify Discrepancies: Catch lost checks, lost deposits, and unauthorized wire transactions early.

  • Ensure Accuracy: Detect and prevent excessive or unjustified bank charges, and ensure transactions are correctly posted.

  • Prevent Fraud: Safeguard against embezzlement of funds within your company.

  • Accurate Financial Overview: Truly understand your business's financial health.

  • Effective Cash Management: Properly managed funds not only save money; they also generate revenue.

  • Risk Mitigation: Protect yourself by quickly identifying and reporting unauthorized, fraudulent, or forged checks to your bank, shifting the responsibility to them

  • Peace of Mind: Enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing your bank accounts are reconciled, balanced, and that all funds, accounts, and transactions are correctly recorded.

Income Statements

An income statement, also known as a profit and loss statement, provides a detailed list of your revenues and subtracts all your expenses to calculate the profit or loss for a given period. This financial tool is essential for several reasons:​

  • Monitor Performance: Track revenues and expenses to asses the operational performance of your business

  • Budget Compliance: Determine which areas of your business are over-budget or under-budget, allowing for better financial control.

  • Identify Cost Issues: Pinpoint specific items leading to unexpected expenses, such as costs related to communications, supplies, or postage.

  • Analyze Sales and Costs: Monitor significant shifts in product returns or the cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales, which can indicate issues in pricing or product quality.

  • Tax Preparation: Calculate your income tax liability accurately based on your net income.

Balance Sheet

A balance sheet provides a snapshot of your business's financial health at a specific moment in time. This crucial financial document offers numerous insights:

  • Assess Financial Health: Quickly gauge the financial strength and capabilities of your business.

  • Trend Analysis: Identify and analyze trends, particularly in receivables and payables. For example,. an extending receivables cycle may indicate a need for more aggressive collection efforts.

  • Evaluate Growth Potential: Determine whether your business is in a position to expand.

  • Manage Financial Cycles: Assess your ability to handle the normal financial ebbs and flows of revenues and expenses.

  • Cash reserves: Decide if there is a need to bolster cash reserves immediately.

  • Payment strategies: Identify if your business is delaying payments to manage cash flow during tight periods.

Balance sheets, along with income statements, form the foundation for financial reporting to potential lenders like banks, investors, and vendors who evaluate how much credit to extend to your business.
