Services

Xero and Quickbooks Online (QBO)

Cloud-based accounting software that helps keep track of your business on any device. Monthly subscription to one of these platforms is included with our services.


Account Sync

Your checking account, credit card and other bank accounts can be synced directly into Xero or Quickbooks Online. We will retrieve all of your transactions and sync to the accounting software.


Hub doc Subscription

This is a document collection and management software. You will be able to collect and sync up all of your invoices, bills, receipts, etc. to Xero or QBO. No more dealing with the hassle of lost items!


Record and Classify Financial Activity

All of your business transactions will be posted and recorded under the proper accounts, so you don't have to stress about how and where your transactions should be itemized to. By doing this, your monthly financial reports will be properly prepared, and they will become clearer and easier to understand.


Reconciliation of Accounts

This is the process of verifying that sets of records balance, are in agreement, and that no data is missing. This process is used to make sure everything spent (and accrued) is equal to money coming out of the account (and money received)!


Accounts Receivable

Commonly referred to as A/R. This is the amount owed to you from your customers for goods and services sold that you have not yet been paid for. Invoices are sent to customers that itemize what kind of services were bought and/or rendered. Staying on top of your A/R is vital to your business and will help prevent you from having cash issues.


Accounts Payable

Commonly referred to as A/P. This is the amount that you owe to vendors and/or supplies for goods and services that you have received and not yet paid for. You receive invoices, and they are due within a specified time. You want to pay these out in a timely manner. If you don't, your vendor may cut off services to you, or even withhold items until old invoices are paid.


Preparation of Financial Statements

A financial statement package will be prepared for you on a monthly basis. Reports that are included in all plans are the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, and Statement of Cash Flows. These statements will give you an overview of your financial picture and will help you make business decisions. Additional reports can be requested as needed.

Cancellation of Services

Contracts are considered to be on a month to month basis. You do not have to sign every month, just the initial contract of services, unless your plan changes. We hope that we do not have to go this route, but we request that thirty (30) days of notification is given when cancelling services so accounts can be properly closed and end monthly subscriptions.


 

We do everything in cloud-based support systems. In order to ensure that your financials are in safe care, we have bank- level security and encryption software!
