Accountants and bookkeepers perform distinctly different tasks for the businesses they serve. Bookkeepers are responsible for on-going maintenance of their clients’ general ledgers. A bookkeeper’s common responsibilities consist of: Reconciling bank and credit card accounts, expense classifications, generating financial statements, reviewing daily company data, Accrual data, etc. While accountants use the accurate and up-to-date general ledger maintained by the bookkeeper to provide advisory services, such as: analyzation, advisory, etc.
We understand that every business runs differently and our experts have experience across a multitude of business. That’s why we want to get to you before we dive into your business. This allows us to service you and fit your needs in the best way possible.
Businesses no longer need to work with a local bookkeeper. The internet and cloud technology makes it easy for accountants to securely access their clients books anytime, anywhere. Business owners can now select a bookkeeper who truly understands their industry and operations, instead of hiring the closest available person.
Depending on the schedule that you choose for the books to be updated, we can perform the bookkeeping services daily, weekly, twice monthly, monthly, quarterly, and annually. Whenever our scheduled time occurs, the day before is the deadline to turn in documents that relate to the bookkeeping; bills, checks written, etc. During this update day, we will also perform any other tasks that may be due to process; online banking activity, payroll, paying bills, and reconciliations. As many banks these days allow for view only access where we are assigned our own login. we can access the banking and credit card accounts online. This allows the bookkeeper to grab statements, look up check images, deposit details and be able to fill in a lot of the missing details without having to ask the client for the information. If you don’t feel comfortable with that, we will rely on you to provide all the information.
We set a target date for the 15th for each prior month closing, however there are instances where there can be delays such as documents and questions that we may need in order to finish up the process.
