  • Utilize profitability ratios to assess a business’s ability to generate earnings relative to its revenue, operating costs, balance sheet assets, and shareholders’ equity over time, using data from a specific point in time.

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 you.

Maintaining a Clean General Ledger

general ledger is the foundation of a system used by accountants to store and organize financial data used to create the firm’s financial statements. It is a chronological record of daily financial transactions, and the general ledger book is itemized by accounts. These records constitute the central “books” of your system.  Any error in recording your daily transactions could throw off all of your financial statements.  

By either having us enter your general ledger entries or reviewing your general ledger system, we can ensure there are no discrepancies or errors in your books.  Because our objective is to make sure you have accurate and clean financials.
