Finally – get a clean set of books
Does your bookkeeping meet these standards?
A) Your Chart of Accounts fits your business operation to ensure that all income and deductions are recorded
properly and your financial statements can be relied upon for tax preparation and making management decisions.
B) Reconciliations have been performed not just for bank accounts, but also for income, expense, credit card, asset, and liability accounts such as payroll taxes and sales tax payable.
C) There are no old unresolved items sitting in receivables, payables, bank, and other balance sheet accounts.
D) Tax return adjustments have been posted so that all accounts on both the profit and loss and balance sheets match previously-filed tax returns exactly.
E) Fixed assets and depreciation expense are recorded properly and inventoried at least annually to insure the accurate preparation of the Unsecured Property Tax return.
F) Physical Inventory is taken at least annually and appropriate adjustments are made to the books.
G) Your written procedures effectively prevent or at least detect errors and irregularities. Staff and bookkeeper are trained and have written instructions for maintaining the books. A professional is consulted when there are unusual items.
H) Your financials provide you with budgeting, forecasting, and strategic planning that help you make your business more efficient and profitable.
I) You and your accountant regularly review the tax attributes of re-organizing your business as an LLC, Partnership, Trust, C Corporation, or Subchapter S Corporation.
