General Ledger & Accounting System Set-up
Having accurate financial reports and being able to retrieve detailed information when needed is a key component to business success.  Selecting the proper accounting system and having it set-up correctly is key to allow you to retrieve accurate, and reliable information allowing you to make wise business decisions.  At ACT Financial Services, Inc., I realize that every business is unique in some way and therefore not every business accounting system can be set up the same and be effective to meet the owners and management needs.  

What ACT's Gainesville, GA business accountant will do:

She will meet with you and discuss the different aspects of your business: 

  • What are your main products or services? 

  • Will you have inventory? 

  • What are your main costs associated with your sales?

  • Will you have employees?

  • How will they be paid? 

We will discuss how you will want to track your business activities: 

  • How do you want to track your sales?

  • How will you be paid? 

  • What information do you want to see on your P&L?

  • What other reports will you want to generate? 

As your trusted Gainesville, GA CPA, after you've answered these and other key questions, she will be able to recommend an accounting system that is right for you. Once our accountants have the correct accounting system, she will complete the set-up and verify that it is working correctly. After the set-up and verification is complete, she will meet with you to install the accounting system on your computer system. But, she won't stop there. 

You will continue to receive hands on training from an experienced professional that will save you time and money by providing you with the know-how to get the most out of your new system.  ACT Financial Services, can also provide monthly and quarterly services, to ensure that your accounting system is being accurately maintained.

As your Gainesville, GA accountant, I will discuss with you what your needs are; Do you need to add or subtract general ledger accounts? Do you need to track income and expensed by project, customer or some other criteria specific to your business?  Have you found transactions that you know are incorrectly coded?  Based on your needs, I will evaluate your current accounting system to see how it is or isn't meeting your requirements.  Once I have made our evaluation, I will present you with all possible options in route to getting you a system designed and working to meet your specific accounting and reporting needs.

Monthly Reconciliation Services
Monthly Bank, Credit Card and GL account reconciliations are crucial to making sure your financial statements reflect accurate account balances.  Reconciliations can be cumbersome and time consuming and at times, seem simply irreconcilable. Having them done by a professional, non-partisan third party will save you time and money while providing an added level of security against fraudulent activity. 

A monthly overview of all GL accounts and monthly adjusting journal entries (as required to reflect accurate balances) will provide you with ongoing confidence that your financial statements are up to date and accurate, enabling you to make informed business decisions.

Creating customized reports is often necessary to meet unique and specific needs of your business.  My report design experience can save you time and headaches by designing and creating the reports and making them a part of your system.
