We’ll work with you to create items to charge, tracking profitable and non-profitable inventory. We are creative in designing and generating your client/customer service invoices. Let us establish aging reports and provide routine receivable collection updates. How you receive payment for your services is also key to your business cash flow. We are available to assist with the set-up of your merchant, pay pal, or direct deposit of payments.

Accounts Payable

Your bills from your vendors may come in daily, weekly, or even monthly. We organize all bills that come in the mail or are electronically delivered into one database so that you may view your debts due all in one program. The same program will allow you to approve bills to paid, view due dates, analyze payment mail out dates and enter the amounts you are ready to pay. Decided on what dates of the month work better for your check runs. Choose to write a physical check, schedule a system check or set your vendor up to be paid electronically.

Reconciliation

Account Reconciliations are part of the final steps to ensuring your posting activities are correct within your books. Yes, banks can make a mistake but 99.9% of the time your bank statements are correct. Well make sure all your deposit and withdrawal activities match your bank and credit card statements. We believe in the ethics of principle owners signing off on bank statements and reconciliation reports. Your financial bank reconciliations are vital to the success of your financial reports.

Data Entry

With all the software and programs in the world there is still no work around from entering data into a system. Posting transactions such as your sales or receipt of payments are still necessary.
