If you are looking to outsource your bank reconciliation services to a trustworthy third party then you have come to the right place. We provide you with impeccable bank reconciliation facilities that cost way lesser than hiring an in-house CPA. Now, before we go through the various services that you can avail by seeking help from Accounts Confidant, you might be wondering what is bank reconciliation exactly? So, let’s try and understand what bank reconciliation is.
Bank reconciliation is the process of balancing and matching figures in accounting records with those displayed on a bank statement. It is an extremely crucial aspect of handling finances. In other words, if a customer makes a payment, that payment needs to be matched with its corresponding invoice to balance out the amounts effectively.
Our bank reconciliation services are created to ensure that your business finances are exactly as you want them to be.
The following are the various benefits of outsourcing your bank reconciliation tasks to us:
With the help of the outside bank reconciliation services, an organization matches its distributed checks with the amount or entry entered in bank statements. A vigilant review based on proper sheets and procedures helps to disclose fraudulent activities such as payment made for illegitimate business purposes, payments transferred to illicit employees or unauthorized vendors and not revising sanctioned check amounts and details.
Bank representatives may make accounting errors such as transfer wrong sum, record wrong check amount, enter the amount in a wrong bank account, omit an entry from an organization’s bank statement or record a duplicate transaction. Outsourced bank reconciliation services give entrepreneurs time to notify a bank of its errors to find the difference and correct the error.
Outside bank reconciliation service firms let organizations handle their accounts receivable better. When a customer’s payment is cleared from a bank, the receivable remains no longer outstanding and therefore, requires no further action. However, if a client’s check doesn’t clear, that alerts management to be more focused in its collection process.
The on-hold time between cash outflows to vendors and employees as well as payments coming from clients and customers can vary greatly. This particularly affects an organization with very low cash reserves. Outside service providers help entrepreneurs manage or postpone payments that may safeguard organizations from business overdrafts, bounced checks, insufficient funds and extra interests. To explain this with a bank reconciliation example, let’s assume that you have $1,000 in your checking account today. You go to the mall and write a check for $1,250 at a furniture store. Now, to prevent your checks from bouncing, the bank will check your history and provide you with the overdraft facility. You will have to pay this amount back later on though.
So, schedule a consultation with us and allow us to take care of all of your bank reconciliation tasks.
