Bookkeeping/Write-Up

You can’t run a healthy, successful business without having your books in order. It’s like driving a car without a fuel gauge or map – sooner or later, you are going to get lost or run out of gas. Staying on top of your finances is a crucial part of being a successful small business owner. As such, your financial data must be current and accurate so that you have the tools you need to make sound business decisions and ensure healthy cash flow. A great bookkeeper has the tools and the experience to help business owners stay on top of their finances. At The Perfect Balance, we have extensive knowledge of bookkeeping, up to date software, and advanced educational certification. Do you need a bookkeeper and an accountant? The terms are sometimes used interchangeably, and there can be some overlap in what they do, but there are distinct differences.

Bookkeeping handles the day-to-day task of recording financial transactions, including purchases, receipts, sales, and payments. Accounting is more subjective, providing business owners with financial insights based on their bookkeeping data. Accountants look at the big picture. The accounting process produces reports that bring critical aspects of your business’s finances together to give you a complete picture of where your finances stand and what they mean, what you can and should do about them, and where you can expect to take your business in the near future. We provide a variety of service types to fit your business needs. In house, at our office, or through web-based remote access. We specialize in QuickBooks and Sage accounting software.

Business Entity Selection

Most small businesses start as a Schedule C on your personal tax return. When is it time and advantageous for that to change? Are you a sole proprietor or a partnership? Can you benefit from incorporating as a Limited Liability Company or S- Corporation? Are you ready to take the step as a C- Corporation? We can help you strategize those decisions.

Financial Analysis

When a business is able to undertake strong financial analysis, it opens up new opportunities to improve management, planning and decision making. Financial analysis provides the numbers to support, reject or contemplate a course of action. Prospective analysis can show how situations may evolve under various scenarios, providing a new dimension to decision making. We are ready to provide this type of financial analysis to support the continued prosperity of your business.
