Business Services

As a small business owner and part of Main Street, you have more important things to do than keep your own books. We take care of your record keeping for you, so you can focus on growing your small business!

Each month or quarter we’ll do the following things for you…

  • Reconcile your bank account

  • Generate an income statement

  • Generate a balance sheet

Bookkeeping

Bank Reconciliation

Midwest Accounting will reconcile your bank account each month in order to keep your taxes up-to-date.

Letting us reconcile your account each month enables you to…

  • Track checks, deposits, and other transactions.
  • Avoid excess/unjustified bank charges
  • Ensure transactions are posted correctly by your bank.
  • Detect and prevent fraud from within your company.
  • Understand how your small business is doing? To know all accounts need to be reconciled and properly accounted for on your financial statement.
  • Manage your cash more effectively. Efficient management of cash not only saves money, it makes money.
  • Protect your small business, by timely reconciling and promptly objecting to your bank about any unauthorized, fraudulent or forged checks presented and paid by your bank.

Income Statement

An income statement, otherwise known as a profit and loss statement, basically adds an itemized list of all your revenues and subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to present a profit or loss for the period.

An income statement helps you…

  • Identify revenues and expenses so that you can track the operating performance of your business.
  • Track what areas of your small business are over-budget or under-budget.
  • entify specific items that are over or under budget.
  • rack increases in cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales.
  • Determine your income tax liability.

Balance Sheet

A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your small business’ financial condition at a specific moment in time.

A balance sheet mainly helps you…

  • Quickly visualize the financial condition of your small business.
  • Identify and analyze trends. This is especially useful when examining accounts receivable and payable.
  • Understand if your small business is in a position to expand, acquire, or be acquired.
  • Determine if your small business can accommodate the normal ups and downs of revenues and expenses
  • Identify if you need to take immediate steps to increase cash reserves?

Balance sheets, along with income statements, are the most basic elements in providing financial reporting to potential lenders such as banks, investors, and vendors who are considering how much credit to grant to your small business.

Keeping a Clean General Ledger

The general ledger is the basis of your company’s financial records. The ledger constitutes the central “books” of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger negatively effects your recordkeeping.

When Midwest Accounting LLC reviews your general ledger system each month, we proactively identify any discrepancies such as double billings or unrecorded payments. Then we’ll fix the discrepancies so your books are always accurate.

Payroll

Paying employees has become extremely time consuming and complicated for small business owners on Main Street.

On average, small business owners spend 12 full days a year managing payroll on their own. That’s valuable time lost that could instead be spent generating sales, prospecting new business opportunities, improving products or serving customers.

We offer payroll solutions across the Midwest that meet the small business’ needs of Main Steet. Our service enables you to spend time doing what you do best–running your small business. This service features our unique secure, online portal for data entry, at your convenience. Click here to see a demonstration video.
