Bookkeeping

Monthly Bookkeeping and Payroll Services

If you want to save money on taxes and tax preparation, get a handle on expenses both now and in the future, and have an accurate financial plan for growth, ongoing monthly services are for you. We’ll put together a customized package of accounting services to meet your unique needs.

Payroll Processing and Reporting
Requirements for payroll processing differs from company to company and the timing of withholding taxes and liability deposits can get complicated. We help businesses with 1 – 30 employees avoid penalties and problems by optimizing payroll processes so that information is accurate and deadlines are met according to your payroll schedule
Sales and Use Tax Reporting
Did you know that every business is required to file an annual sales tax report even if you don’t collect any sales tax? For those that do collect and pay sales or use taxes, it’s sometimes difficult to know what is and is not taxable. We help you set-up your sales tax processes so that payments are scheduled, revenue is set aside for payments, and all possible exemptions are utilized to lower your tax load.
Accounts Receivable
Many businesses we work with create their own invoices and collect their own payments, but need an outside hand to set-up reports or collect on past-due invoices. We can step in to recommend strategies for managing AR, and to find the best way to bring late-paying customers up-to-date while avoiding a potentially emotional situation.
Accounts Payable
Would you believe that one of the biggest problems we come across with new clients is that they don’t realize they have double-paid some of their vendors? We are really good at catching redundancies which saves our clients a lot of money. We can also help you manage your cash flow by negotiating with vendors and planning monthly payments to match income.
Financial Statements
If you’re like most business owners, you want to have a firm handle on the financial performance of your company. We put the information you want right at your fingertips with monthly financial statements. We can generate profit and loss, balance sheet, and income statements that are in an easy to understand format you do not need an accounting degree to interpret.
Bank and Account Reconciliation
The biggest benefit to keeping your bank accounts up-to-date is that you know where your money is going. Our clients save money on tax preparation because expenses aren’t just recorded accurately, they’re categorized correctly to the business chart of accounts. It’s not unusual for us to pick up on possible fraud, and detect inconsistencies which also saves you money.

Accounting

Business Accounting Setup

There are many powerful software tools like QuickBooks or Zoho for managing the financial life of your business. If you don’t get them set up correctly, however, you aren’t going to get the accurate data you need to make decisions and assess the financial health of your company.

As experts in the most popular software accounting systems, we can help you choose the software that is best for your company. We will customize your company chart of accounts, import customers and vendors, and set-up the reports that you’ll want to pull on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual basis.

This is for you if:

 

  • You want to create a firm, financial management foundation for your business.
  • You need help choosing the best accounting software to meet your business needs.
  • You need help to move from one software to another, or transition from paper to electronic systems.

Accounting Software Consulting and Training

If you do your bookkeeping yourself or have someone on staff who is managing your finances, you can call on Payroll Solutions Plus when you want to improve your business processes, need training, or just get stuck.

We can give you an assessment of your current software set-up and provide recommendations for improvement. If you like, we can help you implement solutions and create a customized training package to help your staff get up to speed.

This is for you if:

 

  • You want to find ways to streamline your business processes.
  • You have specific questions or problems you want to solve.
  • You have a new employee taking over responsibility for bookkeeping.

Client Testimonials

Shannon is so Willing to Help and Teach

Shannon has been a game changer in my fledgling business. This year I am prepping my taxes by running a few QB reports instead of fretting over an excel spreadsheet. I am so relaxed and it’s all because of Shannon! She is so willing to help and teach, which allows me to learn as well as delegate. She is also eternally patient and helped me clean up and input years of information, all without judging. Now I’m able to see my numbers so clearly and am set to budget and project more confidently going forward.
