Marsha Carlson, CPA Small Business Bookkeeping
   United States
  |   Fountain, CO

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

I am a CPA with a tax background. I absolutely love the bookkeeping side of accounting. Because of my tax background I have the expertise in the process required each month to have a clean set of books for year end tax preparation. When I prepare monthly financial statements I always tie out to my detail just as if I were preparing a tax return each month. My experience is mostly with Quickbooks. I have set up several companies on Quickbooks to customize for their field. I know what to look for to find items that may have been posted...

Service Description

My comapny provides bookkeeping services to small businesses. Bookkeeping services is a bit vague, but I am capable of doing a wide array of financial services.

I currently provide bookkeeping services for a nationally owned smoothie business here locally. I have experience in many different areas of accounting. I have worked on the tax side of accounting for 5 + years. Because I have a tax background I have the advantage of knowing how items need to be catagorized and the process required each month to help keep the books clean and ready for year end tax preparation. I also have experience in helping companies prepare for an audit. I recently helped a local manufacturing company prepare bank reconciliations that had not been prepared for 8 months. This involved a 3 way reconciliation between a general ledger program, a cash book kept on excel and the bank statements. I had to identify the differences that were causing the general ledger program to be out of balance per the bank. With my local bookkeeping client I currently post sales weekly, pay vendors, prepare payroll twice a month, prepare financial statements montly, sales tax reports montly and quarterly payroll tax forms.
