Yes, even if you already have an accountant, it can still be beneficial to have a bookkeeper. While accountants and bookkeepers both deal with financial data, they perform different functions and have different areas of expertise.
Bookkeepers are responsible for recording and organizing daily financial transactions, such as sales and expenses, and reconciling bank statements. They ensure that your financial records are accurate, up-to-date, and compliant with accounting standards.
Accountants, on the other hand, analyze financial data, prepare financial statements, and provide advice on tax planning and financial management. They use the data that the bookkeeper has recorded to provide financial insights and help you make informed business decisions.
By hiring a bookkeeper, you can free up your accountant’s time to focus on higher-level financial analysis and planning. This can help ensure that your financial data is accurate and up-to-date, and that you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your business.
As part of our bookkeeping services, we provide you with monthly income statements and balance sheets to help you keep track of your company’s financial performance. These reports are essential for monitoring your business’s financial health and making informed decisions about its future.
The income statement we provide gives you an overview of your company’s monthly revenue, expenses, and profit. It lists your total sales revenue, cost of goods sold, and operating expenses, such as rent, utilities, salaries, and taxes. The income statement subtracts your total expenses from your total revenue to give you your net profit or loss for the month. This information can help you identify trends in your revenue and expenses, and make decisions about pricing, marketing, and cost-cutting.
In addition to the income statement, we also provide a monthly balance sheet. The balance sheet is a financial statement that compiles other important financial information, such as cash available, assets, liabilities, and equity. It provides a snapshot of your company’s financial position at a specific point in time, and can help you track your company’s progress towards financial goals.
The balance sheet is divided into two sections: assets and liabilities. The assets section includes items such as cash, accounts receivable, inventory, and property, plant, and equipment. The liabilities section includes items such as accounts payable, loans, and taxes owed. The difference between the total assets and the total liabilities is the company’s equity.
By providing you with these reports each month, we can help you stay on top of your company’s financial performance and make informed decisions about its future. You can use the information in these reports to identify areas where you can cut costs, invest in growth, and make other strategic decisions that will benefit your business.
