We review specific accounts and provide the transaction detail. Unusual items are investigated, explained, and corrections are made accordingly. For example, an analysis of Equipment Expense could result in the reclassification of large dollar items to Fixed Assets. In addition, depreciation expense would be calculated and recorded.
We compare the transactions on your bank statements with those in your accounting books and reconcile the balances. You receive a detailed list of all the reconciled items (deposits received by the bank and checks that were cleared), as well as all outstanding items. We adjust your accounting records accordingly for any missing transactions and investigate all discrepancies.
We record your company's financial transactions accurately and efficiently into an accounting system designed specifically for your industry.

We will then spread this annual budget into monthly amounts in order to monitor differences between actual and budgeted numbers.
