The good news is that Bookkeeping is one of the simplest, easiest and most inexpensive tasks to outsource. It can however, be costly when done incorrectly. Regular bookkeeping is the key to avoiding a lot of wasted time, money and unnecessary paperwork when it comes to filing your taxes.
Keep on top of these very important tasks – paying on time.
Your purchases from Vendors
Are you having trouble understanding your accounts payable when it comes to your purchases from vendors? It is important to keep bills for paying vendors on time. This includes keeping all bills received from vendors including all packing and delivery slips (as confirmation in writing of the dates they were received).
Still confused? Goods purchased are listed on a packing slip showing the goods received on the delivery date. A copy of the packing slip and delivery slip is given to the bookkeeper to be matched with the vendor bill for billing which updates your accounts payable. As a business owner, it is important to verify the cost on the goods purchased for resale to the customer’s pricing and perform monthly inventory counts.
A bookkeeper makes this process simple for you by updating the inventory, entering vendor bills, and separating unpaid bills, is a process known as a cheque run.
Saving you time and energy so that you can focus on running your business.
Your shipment to customers
A customer request product(s) the customer order is entered, items are picketed and in order to complete the order, a packing slip is shipped with the order. A customer invoice has sale price for accounting lets customers know amount OWING, it moves the items on the packing slip from inventory into Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) and updates the accounts receivables and all unpaid customer payments. When a payment is received from your customer this payment is applied against the outstanding customer’s invoices and a deposit is made.
