BOOKKEEPING SERVICES

BOOKKEEPING DRIVEN BY TECHNOLOGY

We Leverage Technology to Help You Make Intelligent Financial Decisions.

Pay Bills With Just One Click.

We automate your accounts payable and receivable so you can spend more time on your business. Never keep another receipt, vendor invoice or check. All your business documents are in one place and they are attached to their specific transaction. Park City Bookkeepers uses digitally-stored receipts and documents to enable you to have quick access to searchable files.

The Cloud

The cloud has changed how we store and share data. You don’t need to email files anymore – changes get reflected in real time across multiple computers. Compare this to times when all bookkeeping was done manually in ledgers and journals that were kept securely, and if you lost them, the data was gone forever.

 

This technology is a big leap because it reduces time spent on tracking and recording invoices and other documents manually – that time can now be spent on more important roles such as strategic planning.

Audit Proofing

Even the sharpest bookkeepers can make mistakes, but the smallest of errors in bookkeeping can result in tax penalties and botched reports. Thankfully, we now have access to specialized bookkeeping software & audit-protection procedures that makes the whole data entry  virtually error-free. Technology has brought much-needed advancements and positive changes to many of our bookkeeping processes.

BOOKKEEPING SERVICES WE PROVIDE

Bookkeeping Cleanup Service

Park City Bookkeepers offers QuickBooks and Xero clean-up services to small, mid-sized, and fast-growing businesses. Whether you or your bookkeeper made a mess of your company file or you just want the peace of mind knowing your QuickBooks or Xero file is in order, let our degreed and Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor’s help you out!

Rarely…OK NEVER…have I heard small business owners or entrepreneurs say “I can’t wait to start my business so I can do my bookkeeping and payroll.” It’s easy to lose track or fall behind with the financial state of your business. Data entry is time-consuming and boring. Accounting and Bookkeeping software can be complicated sometimes, resulting in double entries and upside down balances. Worst of all, when done inaccurately, it impacts how you calculate your bottom line.

Don’t be embarrassed if you currently keep a shoebox full of receipts, a folder full of invoices or a collection of numbers rattling around in your head or a handful of handwritten financial notes, an Excel spreadsheet and an incomplete QuickBooks report. Trust us, we’ve seen worse!

What is a bookkeeping clean-up?

Are your books are a big mess? Panic, frustration and the urge to pull out your hair are normal reactions. But luckily, it’s never too late to get a bookkeeping cleanup and prevent any future losses. Though it may not be the most exciting aspect of running a business, bookkeeping is a critical business activity.

It’s easy to conduct business while letting the books go for a few months OR to hire a budget bookkeeper that keeps monthly expenses low. Unfortunately, those decisions may create costly issues down the road. Whether you’re a sole proprietor or controller, improper bookkeeping can impede business growth, cause avoidable audits and create a preventable cash flow shortage.

A timely cleanup can prevent larger losses, give you a much clearer picture of your business’ financial standing, and allow you to take prudent business decisions. We take pride in providing reliable bookkeeping cleanup services to local businesses. We understand your needs like no online company ever can and deliver tailor-made solutions at very affordable rates.

Bookkeeping cleanup may NOT be right for you if:

We are not suited to business owners who think accurate bookkeeping is not necessary and are only interested in getting their books in line to avoid legal repercussions. We don’t offer quick fix services and take pride in our business ethic and our focus on building long-lasting relationships with our clients. Our goal in working with you is to serve as reliable financial advisors who are invested in the success of your business.

If all you need is a cheap service to meet the bare minimum requirements for bookkeeping, we would advise you to look elsewhere because we believe a business’ success hinges upon financial processes and relationships that can be relied upon.

We love talking to our clients and handling their financial affairs with the utmost prudence by becoming partners they can count on every time. If you share similar values, we would love to hear from you and get started on cleaning your books.

FLAT-RATE SERVICES WE PROVIDE

Flat-rate monthly bookkeeping

With about 50% of business failing in their first 5 years and with a federal tax code over 75,000 pages long, it’s surprising that business owners feel they have enough time and expertise to handle the bookkeeping, payroll and other back-office tasks themselves.

Park City Bookkeepers offers customizable Flat-Rate Bookkeeping Packages offering varying levels of bookkeeping, accounting, and payroll services that will give you the information you need to keep your business on track. From basic bookkeeping and accounting to more in-depth financial analytics and reporting – we have a solution that will fit your specific needs.

Our services are comprehensive. Meaning, when we are done, you have complete, accurate, and dependable financials. This gives you the ability to make important decisions quickly and confidently. Our packages are based on the volume of transactions, frequency of the work, complexity of the bookkeeping, and specialized reporting requests. See our typical customer packages below.

What is flat-rate bookkeeping?

Bookkeepers have traditionally followed the hourly billing method. While that works well for them, the client usually ends up either getting surprise bills they did not anticipate or a cost they did not budget. With that type of uncertainty, there’s little wonder why businesses shy away from professional bookkeeping.

If your books are not in order, you run the serious risk of: Getting audited by the IRS, improperly forecasting cash flow required to cover business activities & expenses, or not having a clear picture of the business’ financial standing.

Flat-rate bookkeeping is a defined package with only the services you need. No more worries about fluctuating monthly bookkeeping expenses or pay for extra hours when you need any additional work done. These packages allow for flexibility and customized scenarios and depend on factors like: Your transactional volume, the amount of work needed every month, the complexity of your books, and whether you have any particular reporting needs.

Flat-rate bookkeeping may NOT be right for you if:

If you’re a business owner looking for the cheapest bookkeeping services in town, we are not for you. We are an agency with a unique work-ethic and the desire to truly know our customers and forge lasting relationships that contribute to mutual success.

We are not your typical bookkeepers, nor is increasing billable hours our mantra – we are driven by the need to solve problems for our clients without having them pay exorbitant fees.

Meeting the bare minimum is not our definition of work, and when you hire us, you get a bookkeeping firm that you can rely on as a financial partner and advisor.Our flat-rate bookkeeping packages are economical, but they are in no way cheap or quick fixes to your bookkeeping problems. Our team of accountants reviews every case closely and suggests the best course of action for your business regardless of our own profitability. We put you first and love businesses which adhere to the same values.

With Flat-Rate Pricing, Our Bookkeeping Services Are Affordable

We understand that not every business has the same needs and, at times, selective services are required. These extra services do not justify top-tier hourly billing rates. That is why we offer flat-rate bookkeeping packages which are specific to your business’ size & specific needs. With flat-rate bookkeeping, you are charged a fixed amount every month and then it is off your plate. We handle everything from basic bookkeeping tasks to the more advanced accounting needs, including preparing financial reports for you to understand how your business is doing.

HIRING THE RIGHT BOOKKEEPER IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION

Top 3 complaints we hear from customers about bookkeeping services companies

With the entrepreneurship boom giving birth to an unprecedented number of small and medium businesses, bookkeeping companies have witnessed a lot of business growth as well, allowing them to offer more competitive and flexible packages to meet the growing demand. However, not all services put their customers first, and here are the top 3 complaints customers have about their bookkeeping companies.

Reports Not Delivered On Time

As a business owner who has outsourced bookkeeping, you don’t want to spend time keeping track of all the small transactions. You just want the big picture available to you for the big decisions you need to make. A lot of the times bookkeeping services are slow at compiling these reports when requested and that’s one of the biggest complaints from business owners who expect faster turnaround times.

Monthly Costs are Unpredictable

Bookkeeping has traditionally been billed per hour (but that approach is fast changing now) and if you’re a business owner on the receiving end of a surprising bill every month, it becomes very frustrating to try and budget without knowing what your bookkeeping will cost you. This is a common complaint by bookkeeping service customers, who would essentially like a more predictable monthly cost so that they can rest easy knowing what they should budget for.

Poor Communication

If you have outsourced your bookkeeping as a small or medium business owner, you tend to want to be more engaged with your service provider and get quick responses and support in case you have questions or want to get a sense of how things are working out for your business. Unfortunately, a lot of bookkeeping companies don’t prioritize communication, or simply don’t have the time to give customers dedicated support. This is a major complaint from customers, because when they hire a bookkeeping service, they assume timely communication is going to be part of the deal.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN HIRING
A BOOKKEEPER

Does Their Offering Align with Your Needs?

The most important consideration is to go with a company that provides services in line with your requirements. For instance, if you have a low volume of monthly transactions, paying per hour for bookkeeping services may not be a good use of your funds and a flat-rate bookkeeping package may be a better fit. If you are just getting started, there are going to be several elements of bookkeeping unfamiliar to you during the initial stages. You need a company that invests in your success by providing a more intimate experience. At Park City Bookkeepers we take pride in our personal approach towards all our clients.

 

How Do They Bill Services?

Monthly costs are also important. Ask yourself, is the company willing to work out a package with costs only for the services your business needs or are they trying to upsell you unnecessary reporting options?

 

What is Your Preferred Communication Method?

During all this, you will have several questions and will be a lot more comfortable if your chosen company is open to communication and is accessible locally, unlike most corporate bookkeeping services which charge per hour for consultations or services that employ freelancers that are not available beyond the set tasks they are contracted to perform.

We understand you want more than just a data-entry clerk. You want a trusted advisor that is a strategic partner, a trusted advisor who can provide more than just accounting solutions.
