Bank Reconciliation

Reconciling your business checking account each month allows us to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date.

 

Income Statement

An income statement, otherwise known as a profit and loss statement, basically adds an itemized list of all your revenue 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 revenue 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.

 

 
Balance Sheet

A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business' financial condition at a specific moment in time.

A balance sheet helps you...

  • Quickly get a handle on 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. 

 

 
Maintaining a Clean General Ledger

The general ledger is the core of your company's financial records. These records constitute the central "books" of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.

 

Payroll

When it comes to paying employees, laws and the IRS have made the payroll function a time consuming nightmare for the small business owner.Small business owners spend an average of eight hours a month performing payroll functions. That's 12 full days a year that could be spent generating sales, prospecting new business opportunities, improving products or services, or servicing customers.We offer payroll solutions that meet your business's needs and enable you to spend time doing what you do best--running your company.
