MonthEnd Bookkeeping Procedures

The Bookkeeper's Notes on
How To Prepare Internal Financial Statements
Using 21 Simple Steps

What Do You Do Once The Data Is Entered?

Today I want to chat about how to implement monthend bookkeeping procedures in your business.

Hi, I'm a Certified Professional Bookkeeper with 30+ years finance/accounting experience in Canada; the last 8 years as a self-employed bookkeeper.

I like to help work from home business owners learn not only how to do their own books if they are so inclined, but also how to supervise their bookkeeper if they are not so inclined.

As I've already said, I want to chat about how to do monthend bookkeeping in a small sole proprietor structured business.

we are NOT talking data entry here folks ... is often neglected by home based business owners. Many of you tend to stumble along haphazardly and once a year you file your tax return … or not! But here's the PROBLEM ...

You don't know what you don't know  you know! My simple eManual can help you figure out some, not all, of what you don't know.

  • If month-end procedures were broken into simple steps, would you perform the tasks every month? or at least every quarter?
  • If you could be confident your financial statements were accurate, would you rely on them to help make better business decisions?
  • If you could receive your financial statements on a timely basis while the data is fresh, would you use them to look for trends, find errors proactively?
  • Have you been wondering what you are supposed to do BEFORE you close your accounting software for the month?

This is NOT just a manual.

It is a bookkeeping TOOL

monthly internal
financial statements
