Precise Bookkeeping to Keep Your Accounts in Order
We believe that bookkeeping is an essential component of modern accounting. When your financial data is neatly organized and accessible, you'll find it easier to keep track of your company's performance. We're happy to help you enter and review receipts, documents, and inventory figures.
Our small business accountants in Chicago use efficient cloud accounting software to store your sensitive information. You and your approved partners can access your accounts from any location that has a stable internet connection. With cloud accounting, you can send invoices, pay bills, and oversee your accounts from almost anywhere in the world.
We provide monthly or quarterly reconciliations to detect errors and protect your business from fraud. To perform a reconciliation, we compare your internal financial statements with those of a reputable outside source, such as your bank or credit card company. If the two documents don't match, we'll investigate for unprocessed payments, duplicate purchases, fraudulent charges, or lost deposits. Periodic account reconciliations allow us to protect your financial stability as we craft efficient cash management strategies.
Providing Key Insights with Financial Statements
With routine financial reporting, it's possible to detect patterns in your underlying data that can lead to enhanced performance and profits. We'll regularly provide you with:
- Balance sheets that reveal the actual state of your finances at a specific time. Your balance sheet lists liabilities, assets, and owner equity, thus providing an excellent sense of your business's net worth.
- Income statements show your net revenue over a specified period. By analyzing your income statement, we can assess tax obligations, detect unusual expenditures, and find departments running under or over budget.
- Cash flow statements that monitor your cash inflows and outflows. Potential investors and company executives can review the cash flow statement to see precisely where money is allocated, such as into financing, investments, or operational costs.
