Reconcile your bank account
Reconciling your business checking account each month allow you to stay up-to-date on your available cash. This is an opportunity to get in front of any disputable transactions like missing checks and lost deposits. Properly managing your money not only saves you money, but it helps protect you from potential fraudulent activity.
Generate an income statement
An income statement, or a profit and loss (P&L) statement, is an itemized list of all your revenues and expenses to come up with a profit or loss for a period of time. An income statement allows you to determine the overall operating performance of your business. You can easily see what departments are over- or under-budget. An income statement also helps identify unexpected expenditures, dramatic increases in product returns or cost of goods sold. Your accountant can also estimate your tax liability for the period.
Generate a balance sheet
A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your financial state at a specific moment in time. A balance sheet helps you quickly get a handle on the financial strength of your business. You can identify and analyze trends and determine if your business is in a position to expand. Balance sheets, combined with income statements, provide the most basic elements in financial reporting to a small business.
Clean up your general ledger
Your general ledger is the core of your business’ financial records. Since every transaction is noted in the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your other records. Reviewing your general ledger system each month allows us to get in front of any discrepancies like double billings or unrecorded deposits. Your books will always be accurate.
We can customize a package of services you receive by adding tax planning, tax preparation, payroll, or any of our other small business accounting solutions.
Ultimately, hiring a good accountant is an excellent way to grow your business. Book your consultation to see what small business accounting services are a fit for you!
