Reconciling your business checking account each month is an essential part of maintaining good accounting records. Having us reconcile your account each month allows you to:
- Identify lost checks, lost deposits and unauthorized wire transactions.
- Detect and prevent excess/unjustified bank charges and ensures transactions are posted correctly by your bank.
- Detect and prevent embezzlement of funds from within your company.
- Know how your business is doing? You can’t really know unless all accounts are reconciled and properly accounted for on your financial statement.
- Manage your cash more effectively. Proper management of funds not only saves money, it makes money for you.
- Protect yourself. By timely reconciling and promptly objecting to your bank about any unauthorized, fraudulent or forged 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.
- 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.
The general ledger is the core of your company’s financial records. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.
Having us review your general ledger system allows us to hunt down any discrepancies such as double billings or any unrecorded payments. Then we’ll fix the discrepancies so your books are always accurate.
Although QuickBooks is designed to be user friendly, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly in order for future information to be accurate.

As a business owner, you may be required to file monthly or quarterly sales and/or excise tax returns. We can file these for you and help you maneuver the complexities of multi-state reporting.
As an employer, the IRS requires you to file quarterly and annual reports documenting your payroll tax payments. Make this process simple by allowing us to do all the work. The state your business operates in will require other reports to determine how much is owed to the state in unemployment insurance. If you are required to withhold state income tax, you will also be required to comply with each state’s filing requirements.
Employers are required to provide each employee with a W-2 by January 31st of each year. W-2’s, along with the W-3, are filed with the Social Security Administration and must be reconciled to the payroll tax reports filed for that year.
Payments made to vendors for services totalling $600 or more per year must be reported on a 1099-MISC by January 31st each year. 1099’s, along with a 1096, are filed with the IRS.
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.
- Determine what areas of your business 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.
A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business’ financial condition at a specific moment in time.
A balance sheet helps you:
- Monitor 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.
You may be asked to have a financial statement review performed. Banks and bonding agencies, for example, often require businesses to have their financial statements reviewed by a certified public accountant. A review provides limited assurance that no material modifications need to be made to the financial statements to conform to applicable financial reporting framework. A review includes primarily applying analytical procedures to management’s financial data and making inquiries of Company management. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements as a whole.
