Our Bookkeeping Services
Hand Over Your Bookkeeping Chores to Us
As a small business owner, you have a lot to deal with running your business. Accurate record-keeping is essential to every successful business, but it can also be complicated and time-consuming.
We can help you with the organization and day-to-day tasks of bookkeeping so that you can focus on your core business.
General and Online Bookkeeping Services
You’ll find that many bookkeepers now refer to their work as “client bookkeeping services.” Why? It’s because they are responsible for keeping track of all financial records for their clients.
Previously, this form of work was known as “write-up work” when spoken about among CPAs since they had to physically write and compile the numbers for a trial balance.
Further from this, the term “outsourced bookkeeping services” means that you are entrusting your company books to a different organization.
You may have also heard of “virtual bookkeeping services” or “cloud bookkeeping” and these terms are used for online bookkeeping services that are professional as opposed to you running accounting software yourself.
Regardless of how you refer to us, the information found in your books is essential for the successful and smooth running of your company.
You have to ensure that all of the data within it is accurate and processed quickly so that you remain on time for your yearly taxes. This is why tax filing services are a common addition to most accounting companies.
How You’ll Benefit from an Online Bookkeeping Service
There are plenty of benefits to hiring a dedicated bookkeeper to take care of your books, payroll services, and tax services to ensure that you are always on top of things.

Tax Time Is a Little Less Taxing

SALES TAX COLLECTION, FILING, AND REQUIREMENTS
You might hear bookkeeping professionals using the term SALT. This refers to State and Local Taxes, and this area has seen a massive transformation recently due to a 2018 court case (South Dakota vs Wayfair, Inc.).
The ruling of this case resulted in states being allowed to collect taxes on online sales from out-of-state businesses – regardless of whether they have a physical presence within state borders. As a result, states are quickly altering their requirements for tax collection and expanding on the types of purchases subjected to it.
The best bookkeeping services out there will help you through the process and give you a consultation before you begin filing your sales tax application. You’re likely to get a much better outcome from this process, and for future financial planning.

ARE WE A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR BOOKKEEPING NEEDS?
Our bookkeeping services are a great fit if:
- You have outgrown your current bookkeeping provider and are looking for a new one

- You need additional support to help train, supervise, and check the work and performance of current bookkeepers
Each month, it’s important to reconcile key accounts, including your bank accounts, PayPal account, merchant accounts, credit card accounts, petty cash, and loans. The reconciliation is done by comparing your bank statement balances with the ones in your bookkeeping system, then taking into account outstanding transactions. Any corrections needed to your books can be made on a timely basis so that your balances remain correct.
You may need help with invoicing, accounts receivable management, and collections. We can assist with the preparation and distribution of customer invoices, proper recording in the bookkeeping system, payment matching, payment recording, statement preparation, credit memo and refund processing, and collection of past due invoices.
We can generate reports to help you manage your customer records and accounts receivable better, including customer balances and aging reports. If you need help writing off uncollectible accounts or other adjusting journal entries, we can assist.
It’s important that you have the best billing system for your business. We can help with billing system selection, customization, implementation, and integration with your bookkeeping system. Plus, we can train your staff on the new system as well as review and improve your accounts receivable processes to make your business more efficient.

Actionable Financial Reports
The whole point of bookkeeping is to find out where your business stands financially! We automatically generate an income statement and balance sheet each month for your business. These are key reports to help you measure the amount of revenue and profit you’ve made for the period.
Going deeper, there are many fantastic reports that can be generated from your bookkeeping system to help you hone in on an area so you can make smart business decisions about operational spending, staffing, marketing, capital purchases, and all of the things you need to know to run your business.
Our bookkeeping services will provide you with a clean set of books that you can use to prepare your federal and state tax returns. We can make adjusting entries and perform year-end tasks so that you’re all set to turn your books over to your tax preparer.
Sales Tax Collection, Filing, and Requirements
Many new entrepreneurs are surprised to realize that federal taxes are not the only taxes that they need to worry about when running a business. Depending on the types of products and services you sell, you may need to collect, file, and pay sales tax on items you sell.
Bookkeeping professionals call this area of service SALT, which stands for State and Local Taxes. This area is changing rapidly due to a 2018 court case (South Dakota vs. Wayfair, Inc.) which opened the floodgates for interstate tax collection on online sales regardless of whether you’ve stepped foot in the state or not. States are hungrily looking for more revenue, and this is driving rapid change in state’s requirements for collection as well as expanding what’s taxable.
It’s almost always better to consult an expert in this area – even before you file your sales tax application with the states. If you owe sales tax from prior years, there are many “holidays” and amnesty options that professionals will know about.
Bookkeeping System Setup
Every business needs an bookkeeping system to keep their books. Examples include QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, QuickBooks Enterprise, NetSuite, Sage, and Xero. You may have an bookkeeping system that is industry-specific. The most important question is whether you have the best bookkeeping software solution for your business.
We can help you with many aspects of your bookkeeping system: training to improve your efficiency, bookkeeping software selection, setup of new systems, improved customization so you can get better information, migration to a new system, and streamlined workflow design.
If your bookkeeping software meets your basic needs, but you need additional functionality, we can often solve that with an add-on bookkeeping app. There are now hundreds of add-on applications for your bookkeeping system that can improve a multitude of things: inventory, invocing, time-tracking, bill pay, reporting, and so much more. We have excellent knowledge of the ecosystem of bookkeeping systems and applications so that we can help you become more productive.
Managing a business has a lot do to with managing the risks associated with being in business. With every good bookkeeping system (and where money is involved), it’s essential to maintain a proper set of controls. These controls start in your bookkeeping system and expand to your staff’s duties. Bookkeeping professionals call this “internal controls,” and it’s a core bookkeeping concept that impacts every business.
We can help you identify risks you may not know you’re taking and tighten up controls to help reduce your business risk.
