Bookkeeping clarifies where your money comes from and goes to. You can make better financial decisions when your books are up-to-date.  Tax time rewards accurate books. Up-to-date bookkeeping prevents you from scurrying before the tax deadline or missing deductions. 

Your bookkeeper is responsible for reconciling, categorizing, and preparing financial statements. They also ensure that your books are tax-compliant.  We make every effort to make bookkeeping as hands-off as possible. However, your bookkeeper may require your assistance in categorizing a transaction. We provide free support in bookkeeping and financial accounting.

This depends on how many months of bookkeeping you need to catch up on, but we can usually catch up on a year’s worth of bookkeeping in two to four weeks. 

Bookkeeping, or keeping track of daily transactions, is a key part of any business’s financial success. Bookkeepers’ responsibilities include payroll, recording credits and debits, and general ledger upkeep.  Accounting uses financial data from bookkeepers or business owners to develop financial models. 

Our clients are provided with modified cash basis bookkeeping. This system tracks how much money goes into or out of your bank account or credit card. 

Our accounting add-on keeps track of accounts receivable, accounts payable, unearned revenue, and other financial data. If we keep track of accrual adjustments for you, revenues and costs are recorded when they are earned, not when they are paid or received. At the end of the year, we remove any accrual features so that your books can be done on a modified cash basis again. 

To inquire whether cash-basis bookkeeping is appropriate for your company please set an appointment with Countick experts.
