Bank Reconciliation 


Some clients prefer to handle the Accounts Payable and Receivable functions personally. Carmel Bookkeeping manages client needs by performing an end-of-the month reconciling of their bank and credit accounts. We can intake your invoices and receipts via fax, mail, email or in-person, post them in the General Ledger and reconcile the accounts. 

Having us reconcile your account every month ensures that you know how your business is doing, helps prevent unjustified bank charges and fraudulent bank activity and identifies discrepancies or lost income. 

 Bank reconciliation services include:

  • Enter individual detail of income in General Ledger
  • Account reconciliation for bank and credit cards
  • Reports to track company income and expenses

Financial Statement Preparation

A small business owner must be disciplined in approaching financial recording. Accurate and up-to-date records allow business owners to have immediate access to reports that can help secure funding, determine profit and loss, see cash on hand, devise loan pay-off options, identify expenditures that are negatively impacting the bottom line and recognize trends that can be addressed to improve performance. 

Carmel Bookkeeping works with clients to create financial statements that give a snapshot of specific areas of concern or provide an in-depth look at the company's overall financial status. 

Financial statement preparation services include:

  • Balance Sheets
  • Income Statements
  • General Ledger detail
  • Account reconciliation detail
  • Missing check(s)
  • Journal entry detail
  • Cash Flow Forecasting
  • Budgets and Forecasts
