    Review General Ledger
    The general ledger is the center and foundation of your company's financial records. These constitute the essential book of records of your company, and every transaction flows through the general ledger. These records remain as a permanent track of the history of all financial transactions from the start of the company. The two primary financial documents of any company are their balance sheet and the profit and loss statement, and both of these are drawn directly from the company's general ledger.

    Bank Reconciliations
    Bank reconciliation allows businesses to compare your account records to the bank's records of your account balance in order to uncover any possible discrepancies. Because most companies write hundreds of checks each month and make many deposits, reconciling the amounts on the business's books with the amounts on the bank statement can be time consuming. The process is complicated because some items appear in the business's Cash account in one month, but appear on the bank statement in a different month. Our expert accountants will reconcile your accounts and notify the discrepancies on a timely manner.
