Bank Reconciliation

Reconciling your business checking account with your books every month allow us to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date. It also quickly identifies identity theft, bank errors, and problems that if not found in a number of days may not be correctable due to your bank’s terms of agreement that you are obligated to agree to by having an account with them.

Having us reconcile your bank account each month allows you to…

  • Identify lost checks, lost deposits and unauthorized withdrawals.
  • Detect and prevent excessive or unjustified bank charges
  • Uncover transactions that are incorrectly posted by your bank.
  • Detect and prevent embezzlement of funds from within your company.

Know how your business is doing?

You can’t really know how your business is doing unless all your accounts are reconciled and meaningful reports and financial statements are generated.

Protect Yourself and your Business

When you regularly reconcile your bank accounts, it is easy to uncover any unauthorized, fraudulent or forged checks presented to your bank and paid by that bank. We have clients who have caught these problems only at the end of the year when pulling data together for tax time. Too much time had passed and they were forced to absorb the losses that would have otherwise been reversed by the bank.

Peace of Mind

You will experience peace of mind knowing your bank accounts are reconciled, in balance, and all your accounts, checks, credit cards, and disbursed funds are properly accounted for.


Primary Financial Reports: General Ledger – Balance Sheet – Income Statement

Primary Financial Reports – your General Ledger, Income & Expense Statement and your Balance Sheet are the primary reports that ALL businesses rely on to understand the financial condition of their business and business activities.

These Primary Financial Reports are absolutely necessary should you want to get loans from banks or the SBA, if you need vendors to finance materials and need to calculate how much credit to grant you; and to prepare the best possible tax returns where you can take advantage of the tax deductions that you are legally entitled to.

General Ledger

Your General Ledger is the core of your businesses’ financial records. Maintaining an accurate General Ledger is critical. The General Ledger is the CORE of a business’s “books.” Every transaction MUST, by definition, be recorded in your General Ledger. A problem with your General Ledger causes ripple-effect problems in your entire accounting system. When business owners, with no formal accounting training set up their own QuickBooks Accounting System, for example, they will often make a series of small errors in their General Ledger —or in their Chart of Accounts— that affects their General Ledger. At that point, almost all reports (Income & Expense Statements, and Balance Sheets) are never quite “right on” until those errors are uncovered and corrected.

Having us review your General Ledger each month allows us to bring these things to your attention so that you can track down any discrepancies such as double billings or any unrecorded payments. We can identify and fix any discrepancies so your books are always accurate and useful tools for you to grow your business.

Income & Expense Statement

An income & expense statement is a primary business report that itemizes of all your revenues and subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or loss for a month, quarter or year.

An Income & Expense Statements helps you:

  • Identify and quantify revenues and expenses so you can see at a glance the performance of your business.
  • Identify any areas of your business that are over-budget or under-budget.
  • Identify areas causing unexpected expenditures. Recently a client saw that old-fashioned landline phone, fax, and phone-company-provided Internet were dramatically expensive. Those expenses were cut in half in just a couple hours.
  • Determine your income tax liability that allows us to brainstorm ways to lessen it.

Balance Sheet

A Balance Sheet is a primary business report that gives you a financial snapshot of your businesses’ financial condition at a specific dates.

A Balance Sheet helps you:

  • Get a handle on the financial strength of your business; identify trends – especially payables and receivables.
  • Determine if your business is in a position to expand
  • Determine if your business is healthy as to the flow of revenues and expenses
  • Determine if you are getting into trouble so you can take actions to collect receivables
