We would be happy to talk about how CK&Co. can provide for your accounting and management needs.
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. Your most important goal each day is to ensure the business is operating effectively. We understand that this focus on operations can take your attention away from accounting matters. It’s not unusual for a start-up or small business to lack expertise in this area, making the task even more challenging.
However, it is critically important to ensure your bookkeeping and accounting records are accurate, from day one of business. Some entities are required to comply with certain accounting standards and principles. Failure to do so can result in costly errors and, in some cases, a lack of compliance with federal regulations. In addition, a failure to prepare and update accounting records can put the business at risk for the occurrence of fraud.
We provide full scale bookkeeping and accounting services to our clients. A few of these services are noted below.
Often, owners and other stakeholders need to see financial and accounting information in a format outside the typical financial statements. We can provide custom reports to facilitate management decision-making. The reports are only as accurate as the data entered. This emphasizes the importance of account reconciliation noted above.
We will perform reconciliations of your bank accounts and general ledger accounts. These reconciliations help to timely detect errors and ensure that transactions are reported accurately.
Monitoring accounts receivable ensures you are collection payments from your customers in a timely manner. Likewise, monitoring of accounts payable helps ensure you are paying bills on time. We create aging reports to help you monitor the movement of cash and identify trends.
In addition to preparing your income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows, we teach you how to connect the dots. We will guide you on the KPIs (key performance indicators) to monitor regularly.
We track and monitor cash flow to ensure sufficient funds to meet obligations, such as vendor bills and payroll.
We provide payroll services, including compiling payroll registers and issuing employee payments. We make sure your reporting is accurate and on time.
We are proficient with QuickBooks. We can help set up the system in your company, as well as provide training to your staff. We can also share various tips and tricks in using QuickBooks to get the most from its features.
