Bookkeeping involves the recording, regularly, of a company’s financial transactions. With proper bookkeeping, companies can track all their books to make critical operating, investing, and financing decisions.

Our bookkeepers manage all financial data for companies in or around North Hollywood CA and Hollywood, CA.

Bookkeeping is the recording of financial transactions and is part of accounting in business and other organizations. It involves preparing source documents for all transactions, operations, and other business events.

Transactions include purchases, sales, receipts, and payments by a person or an organization/corporation. There are several standard bookkeeping methods, including the single-entry and double-entry bookkeeping systems. While these may be viewed as “real” bookkeeping, any process for recording financial transactions is a bookkeeping process.

The person in an organization employed to perform bookkeeping functions is usually called the bookkeeper (or book keeper).

Above all, efficient accounting and operating procedures ensure that the business runs smoothly. Clearly, future growth is possible, only if the books are in good and accurate order.

Moreover, El Cid Bookkeeping, Inc. has been providing accounting services to small, medium, and large size businesses. Apart from this, El Cid can perform functions as general ledger accounting, payroll, financial analysis, bank reconciliations, and financial statement reports.

Methods of Bookkeeping Services

Before you begin bookkeeping, your business must decide what method you will follow. When choosing, consider the volume of daily transactions your business has and the amount of revenue you earn. A complex bookkeeping method designed for enterprises may cause unnecessary complications if you are a small business. Conversely, less robust methods of bookkeeping will not suffice for large corporations.

Importance of Bookkeeping Services

Proper accounting services and bookkeeping and payroll services give companies a reliable performance measure.

It also provides general strategic decisions and a benchmark for its revenue and income goals. In short, once a business is up and running, spending extra time and money on maintaining proper records is critical.

El Cid can give you consulting services on your bookkeeping. We work with many small businesses. We can provide you with monthly financial statements and your income tax return for IRS and State.

Many small companies don’t hire full-time accountants to work for them because of the cost. Instead, small companies generally employ a bookkeeper or outsource the job to a professional firm.

Bank Account Balancing

Bank account balancing is the process of finding identical transactions in your bank account and your bookkeeping records.

Balancing your bank accounts is a crucial step in bookkeeping.

Because, after everything else is logged, it is the last step to finding discrepancies in your books. Bank account balancing helps you ensure nothing amiss with your money.

Why is it Mandatory?

Bank balancing is a must because it:

  • Provides the exact financial situation of your company
  • Tracks cash flow accurately
  • It helps detect fraud or bank errors
