Accounting & Bookkeeping Services

All businesses require some form of bookkeeping and accounting. Whenever you prepare payroll, budget for operating costs such as rent and utilities, and plan for growth activities such as marketing, you’re indeed doing business accounting. When you record these financial transactions, that’s bookkeeping.

Many small business owners still do these on their own, which is very encouraging, as it shows the lengths you’re willing to go to make things work.

As you grow, you may run out of time to complete bookkeeping and general accounting on your own.

When that time comes, Kristina Helferty, CPA’s office in Clearwater, FL can help you fulfill your accounting and bookkeeping requirements professionally, on time, and cost efficient.

What’s Accounting & Bookkeeping?

Although bookkeeping and accounting are both important to the business owner, they’re not the same thing:

  • Bookkeeping is more administrative: It primarily covers recording financial transactions, posting debits and credits, completing payroll, and producing invoices.
  • Accounting is more subjective: It tries to provide business insight based on the data gathered through bookkeeping. Key functions here include preparing financial statements, analyzing operating costs, and completing tax returns.

Our Bookkeeping & Accounting Services

Kristina Helferty, CPA and her team offer all the bookkeeping and accounting services your business needs, including:

  • Accounts payable and receivable services
  • Bank reconciliation
  • Financial analysis
  • Financial statement preparation
  • General ledger maintenance
  • Preparation of Balance Sheet and Income Statements

We Offer QuickBooks Consulting Too

QuickBooks has proven a lifesaver for many small and medium-sized businesses. It’s the ideal business accounting software when you’re finding your way up. As Quickbooks Pro Advisors, some of the benefits offered include:

  • Saving time on bookkeeping and paperwork
  • Customized information to work the way you want
  • Allows you to accept credit cards with ease
  • Easily generate the reports you need

The key to fully benefiting from QuickBooks, however, lies in completely understanding how the program works. Otherwise, you’d only be scratching the surface.

We now offer QuickBooks consulting as part of our bookkeeping and accounting services to help small business and medium sized business owners get the most out of the software.

Why Outsource Your Bookkeeping & Accounting Services?

If you’re still wondering why you shouldn’t just continue doing bookkeeping and accounting on your own, outsourcing is advantageous in the following ways:

  • You can make more money: To determine how much more money you’d make through our bookkeeping and accounting services, multiply the number of hours (per year) you spend by how much you charge per hour. For many businesses, it’s tens of thousands of dollars.
  • You’re able to focus on important business areas: While bookkeeping and accounting services are considered overhead expenses, it is just as important to operating the business successfully.
  • You get tax and audit-ready financials: Accountants, the IRS, and banking institutions will all be happy with your financials. Why? Because outsourcing removes any concerns or doubts about the accuracy or integrity of the documents. This is crucial when providing financial statements to banks, investors, or sharing information with the IRS.
