In accounting, bookkeeping means keeping financial records and balancing them (trial balance). There are several types of bookkeeping, the most common of which are the following
Depending on the division of labor agreed upon at the outset, the bookkeeper may have different roles and tasks: preparing paychecks, writing invoices, organizing tax forms, preparing other government documents and statistical, financial or accounting reports. Many types of documents need to be processed and analyzed. The implementation of a proper system can greatly reduce your accounting costs.
The first step is to organize your financial records. This includes sorting through bank and credit card statements, invoices and receipts. You’ll need to do a bank reconciliation with your corporate bank accounts, which compares bank entries (such as bank transactions and other financial transactions) with those recorded in the books.
You also need to ensure that you have a clear understanding of your company’s financial goals and create a budget.
Yes, bookkeeping can be done remotely with the help of technology. There are many software programs that allow accountants to access financial data from anywhere. So we can do this activity through the internet.
In order to have an accurate and real time view of the company’s performance and cash flow, it is necessary to record accounting entries and bank reconciliations. Bookkeeping allows the manager to measure and analyze the variances with the forecasted budget. It is also an ideal tool to compare the current state of the company with past situations.
There is no secret: to be able to know the financial situation of the company accurately, you have to follow your accounting records very closely. This is also the way to make forecasts. In addition, you should not wait for a period of crisis before doing a rigorous follow-up of your accounting. No matter what business you’re in, you’re going to have working capital needs and will want to keep track of your accounting on a daily basis with a powerful management tool.
Bookkeeping allows you to perform many vital operations in the life of your business:
Do you want to track, compare inventory and invoicing, but also verify that each of your products and services sold have been invoiced and control the outstanding amount due from each customer? You can only do this with a rigorous recording of accounting data and a bookkeeping service.
A rigorous follow-up of the accounts not only allows you to take the best decisions as soon as possible but also to maximize the profits as well as the chances of survival of the company in the medium and long term. This is all the more important in an increasingly competitive economic context.
In order to reduce the number of errors in terms of overstated or missed returns, self-employed individuals and small businesses use bookkeeping to keep track of their expenses and income.
A tax audit or audit of the business can happen at any time. The only way to avoid a tax audit related to an accounting deficiency or the inability to produce a document is to have impeccable bookkeeping and up-to-date records. Don’t forget to properly file your records and documents. This will save you valuable time.
Although bookkeeping is mandatory, you will find that it is also an invaluable management tool. As a business leader who must make informed decisions at the right time, a rigorous recording and follow-up of your accounting will be your best allies in optimizing the management of your business.
Yes, maintaining an accurate and up-to-date book of accounts is required for every business in Quebec. This book can be in electronic or paper form and must be made available to Revenu Québec for verification. Quebec businesses must keep records for 6 years.
This book of accounts must indicate daily and chronologically all operations that transform the assets of a business, according to Quebec requirements. They include revenues and expenses, amounts collected for GST and QST, taxes paid and all other useful information.
Keeping accurate books of account can help you with your tax return and help you save money, for example by easily finding tax deductible expenses. Good bookkeeping also helps you in many situations, for example when you want to prove that certain income is not business income and therefore not taxable for income tax purposes.
It is therefore important to have good bookkeeping in order to save taxes. Cofinia has the expertise and skills to help you save on your taxes!
Of course we do! We offer both bookkeeping services and tax preparation services for businesses. The two are intrinsically linked and we can easily handle your tax preparation. This way you will know that professionals have taken care of it and you can have peace of mind when you receive a communication from the Canada Revenue Agency and Revenue Quebec.
Cofinia uses software and applications that are recognized in the industry and that have proven themselves for many years with Quebec SMEs, such as EmployeurD, Nethis and ADP.
Cofinia also uses the ZOHO software for many of its services. We have developed an expertise in this software that will allow you to optimize all facets of your business.
Accounting software is a computer program that is designed to simplify the work of accountants and bookkeepers. This software can be used by anyone, whether you are self-employed or an accountant in a small or medium-sized business in any industry.
It is a very powerful and feature-rich tool to help all accountants manage the financial data of a company. Companies can implement this software for the purpose of processing financial banking transactions, managing accounts, storing financial data as well as restructuring critical business operations. The new features of cloud systems are also very interesting and allow you to gain efficiency and save time without sacrificing quality.
You will be able to save time, generate financial reports automatically, synchronize your financial data with other programs, obtain accurate financial reports and high quality financial statements or detailed information on your financial data.
Bookkeeping services generally require an hourly fee. Indeed, since we cannot know in advance the exact amount of work (amount of assets, liabilities of the company, history of banking and financial transactions, bank reconciliation, etc.), if we start from scratch or if another accountant has been there, we will have to adapt to what we have to do.
In addition, we will need specific documents to work with and some may take time to obtain. Finally, we will need to coordinate and synchronize our software to ensure that everything works as planned. So before you make any payments, it’s best to contact us to discuss your bookkeeping needs.
The cost of one or more accounting software depends on several factors such as the number of features present, the number of users or workstations, but also the brand and reputation of the software itself. To give some figures, some subscriptions cost around 40 dollars per month but this number can go up to several thousands of dollars for customized plans for large companies for example.
We can provide you with financial reports in different formats. We can send you reports in PDF, Excel or other formats, or give you access to an online dashboard with real-time financial data.
Depending on your needs, bookkeeping work can be performed on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
We are always here to help you. We can explain the reports in plain language and answer any questions you may have.
