Bank and Credit Card Reconcilliation

Reconciling your bank account and ensuring transactions from your bank statement match what has been recorded in your books is very important. We will ensure all the tedious work of general bookkeeping is completed so you can receive your Financial Statements on time.

Failing to reconcile bank accounts and credit card statements, while often lengthy and complicated processes, can spell big trouble for your business. The possibility of overdrawing your account or even underestimating your cash can end up costing you money.

Making sure that all your numbers work out is vitally necessary for tracking your existing finances and obtaining an overall picture of where your business stands monetarily.

The risk of mistake is greater if your company is smaller or even a medium sized business.

Accounts Receivable Management

From keying daily sales to customizing customer invoices and preparing statements, let us focus on improving your cash flow and reducing outstanding receivable balances.

Effective communication with customers is key.

With our help designing the billing process, you’ll see a reduction in accounts receivable, an improvement in expressing payment expectations to customers upfront, and better communication with customers after a sale is made in order to reduce outstanding balances.

How can we assist you in accomplishing these goals for your St. John’s business?

  • Accepting a wider variety of payment options will lessen the receivable. For example, accept payment over the phone or allow customers to pay for goods and services directly on your website.
  • Contracts written in simple language and displaying payment procedures in a large range of mediums is the best way to communicate expectations in a straightforward way. Displaying payment methods in a clearly visible location, providing the information in brochures, and making them obvious on your website are a few examples.
  • Immediate billing and appropriate follow-up will greatly reduce the amount of unpaid balances. Follow-up phone calls are a sign of good customer service and also give you a chance to remind clients of their outstanding balances and possibly collect payment over the phone.

Let us help you develop a procedure for managing receivable that works for you! 

Accounts Payable Management

No matter the size of your business, bills will always be there. Let us implement the best business practices and manage your payables including preparation of payments so you can focus on growth.

The Accounts payable process is of great importance to the health of your company. It involves nearly all of the money that is going out, other than payroll expenses.

When your company’s accounts payable process is up-to-date and effectively run, the management and other users of the financial statements will receive accurate feedback about how the company is performing and it’s financial position.

An accounts payable process that isn’t running up to the highest standards can result in missing out on a discount for early payment of bills. If invoices aren’t paid when they’re due, the relationships with suppliers could become difficult.

With our professional accounting help you can avoid paying inaccurate invoices, paying invoices twice, paying fraudulent invoices, missing payments, and generally making sure all invoices are accounted for.

Our aim is to tailor a professional accounting service program for our St. John’s clientele that best meets the needs of each individual client.

We know that open communication is the bedrock of a successful working relationship. We pride ourselves on being accessible to our clients.
