ACCT for Accounting and Technology Services.

EXPENSE TRACKING

  • Receipts are posted at the transaction level in QuickBooks Online - this means your books are AUDIT PROOF.
  • Receipts are also held in a separate data vault sorted by the vendor.

PAYROLL

  • Streamlined, SUPER EASY payroll processing
  • Quarterly and annual forms are included in the price
  • New Hire Packets prefilled with your business information

RECONCILING CHECKBOOKS AND CREDIT CARDS

  • No worries - we got this!

BILL PAYING

  • Recurring bills like rent and utilities can be pre-authorized. They will queue in the report and process timely.
  • Vendor bills to be paid by check can also be pre-authorized for immediate payment, pay when due, or even held per your request.
  • Using the custom email “yourbusinessname@bookkeeping.email” for vendors streamlines the flow as vendors email invoices and receipts directly to us.

EXCEPTIONS & SOLUTIONS

  • We realize things slip up sometimes and a bill does not get to us in time to meet the next bill cycle or the vendor demands a check now. We understand and will work with you.
  • We assign two team members to each account.
  • We strive to be highly responsive to your needs.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

BANK & VENDOR ACCOUNT IMPORT

  • Vendor bills to be paid by check can also be pre-authorized for immediate payment, pay when due, or even held per your request.
  • Using the custom email “yourbusinessname@bookkeeping.email” for vendors streamlines the flow as vendors email invoices and receipts directly to us.

TAX STRATEGY AND TAX PREPARATION

  • You, your family, and your business interests are all looked at as a whole so we can create strategies that improve your quality of life and reduce tax burdens.

ACCT to Simplify Bookkeeping.

MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF!

When it comes to bookkeeping make it easy on yourself - just give us the paperwork and we will handle it timely and accurately. You can focus on GROWING YOUR BUSINESS!

This is how it works:

When you get an invoice, receipt, or something that looks like a bookkeeping item just make a note on the document so we know how to process it:

  • P   --- means paid and then the check number (e.g.  P-2563)
  • @  --- means you approve to pay when due
  • cash  --- paid with cash
  • cc  --- (or circle the credit number) if you paid for it using a credit card
  • ?  --- for something you want us to help figure out

Scan using your cell phone and our recommended app

Email to:   yourbusinessname@bookkeeping.email

BAM!  It’s done.

Well, your part anyway. We will take the receipt or bill to pay and put it into Quickbooks Online Plus at the transaction level. This makes your bookkeeping bulletproof when it comes to auditing.

FIXED FEE vs HOURLY

If you have been looking around for accounting services you may have noticed "fixed fee" or "value pricing".  We find that those deals are a better "value" for the accountant than for their clients.

We charge fairly, hourly, and utilize "soft caps". The soft cap gives you an idea of the monthly fee but allows for exceptions. This way you can control costs and be able to get the services you need when you need them.

COST COMPARISON

We regularly review our fees and transaction fees processing against bench.co (a big dog in bookkeeping but offers no upper level consulting, tax, strategy, or even payroll integration). We find that we are so efficient that we process at a lower cost when converting our hourly cost to the number of transactions per their packages. Also, if you consider their rates are based on the maximum number of transactions and not the average number of transactions then our prices are significantly lower.

COST CONTROL

You can engage us at any level. Most clients just leave it all to us but some clients prefer to do their own bill paying and it does save them some money.

 PRICE RANGE & ESTIMATE

First, the reimbursements for QuickBooks Online Plus, HubDoc, Email Schema, & Intuit Full Service Payroll costs us at wholesale around $110/month. This price includes all:

  • Quarterly payroll forms (941, SUTA, etc)
  • Annual payroll forms (w-2, w-3, 940, etc)

This is about half what you would pay if you went directly to the vendor.

Second, services for assisting with payroll, reconciling accounts, sales tax reporting, and expense tracking. Often it takes around 5 hours per month if the client has a separate system for point of sale and inventory and if they do their own accounts payable.

At 5 hours per month and including the reimbursements a good estimate is:

  • $360/month

Most firms are more complicated, need more services, or just have higher volumes of transactions. Their soft caps range from:

  • $1,000 - $1,500/month

That is a great value because they are getting full back-office services from bookkeeping to "CFO-like" consulting and all the technology we mentioned at a fraction of the price for a part-time bookkeeper.

SOFT CAP

You can set the soft cap per your needs.

Let's say you implement a soft cap of $360/month. We will help you stay under that soft cap and let you know when it looks like more time is needed. You can either authorize us to do the additional work or do it yourself.

This allows you to grow and adjust costs as you really need them.
