In a previous article, we discussed creating a fundamentally sound reporting system. In this article, we’ll expand on that by focusing on having a proper vehicle for your reporting system so information can flow to your accountant seamlessly and in a timely manner. Let’s explore a few methods for reporting information to us:
1. A Customized Cash Flow Reporting Checklist
This will consist of any bank statements, credit card statements, sales reports, sales tax reports, loan statements, and any other key documents deemed necessary. If we process your payroll, employee hours and information can safely be reported through our online client portal, making reporting easy and accurate.
2. Portal and/or Pre-addressed Postage Paid Envelopes
You have a centralized and easy way to submit financial information to your accountant, ideally by the fifth of the month. Unless some statements come to you later and you cannot move up the date you receive those monthly statements. You can either utilize the postage-paid envelopes given to you or log into a secure client portal and upload your material, and your accounting team will have what they need to complete a timely and accurate monthly financial statement.
3. Year-End Tax Organizer
This is your reporting checklist for year-end tax documents that cover wages, medical expenses, rental property information, home mortgage interest, and all other related expenses.
