With its fast and easy setup, QuickBooks Online is the next generation of QuickBooks.

QuickBooks Online organizes your financial information all in one place, so everything is easy to find. It simplifies all your accounting tasks and presents the information you need exactly the way you need it.

It’s easy to switch from a desktop version (Pro, Premier, Enterprise or Desktop for Mac), and with QuickBooks Online you have online access 24/7 anytime, anywhere (mobile access included). It’s easier to use and more flexible than ever, so you can organize your business finances, pay your employees, get paid faster, keep track of expenses, sales, and income, and create and send custom invoices with your company logo in minutes.

QuickBooks for Self-Employed makes it easy for sole proprietors, LLCs, partnerships, nonprofits, independent contractors and freelancers to differentiate between business and personal expenses by automatically categorizing expenses, allowing you to see your total income, expenses, and profit quickly. It also enables you to set aside money for quarterly estimated taxes so you can avoid missed deadlines, and a simple upgrade allows you to export your Schedule C to TurboTax so you can pay your taxes online. When you’re on the go you can use the mobile app to track--and differentiate--your business and personal income and expenses with ease.

If you haven’t ever used QuickBooks before, then QuickBooks Online for Small Business is the best place to start. Its new user-friendly interface looks similar to the QuickBooks desktop software.

You can choose from four plans: QuickBooks Simple Start (general business and nonprofits), QuickBooks Essentials (retail and e-commerce businesses), and QuickBooks Plus (professional and field services). New since 2019 is QuickBooks Advanced for 5+ users with a dedicated customer success manager and QuickBooks training.

Current technologies allow Jeanine and her network of vendors/contractors to manage your accounting "in the cloud" from my QuickBooks Online (QBO) Accountant software office or from your already owned Quick Books Online (QBO) product as your accountant.  I partnered with https://www.qbo.intuit.com to provide managed accounting services. 

BANK RECONCILIATIONS

We recommend that you reconcile your own bank accounts with your QuickBooks records each month via your own login at https://www.qbo.intuit.com but we will be glad to teach you how to use the account reconciliation tool.  This way there is an internal control in place with your accounting system whereby an independent division of labor exists between my services of properly recording and coding your financial transactions, and you or your own employees reconciling your banking records for each account to your downloaded/uploaded transactions received from your banking system.   Reconciling your business checking account each month allows you to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date and keeps you informed about your own financial situation.

Reconciling your account each month allows you to...

  • Identify lost checks, lost deposits and unauthorized wire transactions.
  • Detect and prevent excess/unjustified bank charges and ensures transactions are posted correctly by your bank.
  • Detect and prevent embezzlement of funds from within your company.
  • Know how your business is doing.
  • Manage your cash more effectively. 
  • Protect yourself by timely reconciling and promptly objecting to your bank about any unauthorized, fraudulent or forged checks. 
  • Sleep better knowing your bank accounts are reconciled, in balance and that all escrow funds, accounts, checks and disbursed funds are properly accounted for.

 

MAINTAINING A CLEAN GENERAL LEDGER

The general ledger is the core of your company's financial records. These records constitute the central "books" of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.

Add-on services of payroll / contractors, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and fixed asset management may be integrated into the basic monthly accounting package when client services engaged for are customized to client needs.

Jeanine sets up transaction downloads between client bank accounts and QuickBooks Online (QBO) software.  She communicates remotely with the IT staff at the vendor / contractor locations. She coordinates the use of the software systems needed for client financial services. Clients do not have to manage the technical operation of their online accounting systems nor do they have to deal with technical staff in resolving daily operations or software issues.

Jeanine reviews incoming transactions for coding accuracy so that your financial statements (reports) show a true picture of your company's financial condition or profit (loss). She and the payroll accountants utilize your financial reports in preparing needed tax returns for income, employment, and other required purposes. Additionally, she works with the vendors and contractors at Intuit, PayCycle, and Drake to help with quarterly and annual employment tax preparation, sales & use tax preparation, property tax preparation, and annual accounting write-up with financial statements. Jeanine occasionally subcontracts with Robert Half, Kelly Services, and colleague's accounting firms to provide additional labor for large client projects, or to join client project teams.

Jeanine manages client operational transactions downloaded from client bank accounts to code them into the proper financial statement categories.  You or your client(s) as the owne(s)r of your licensed online software produce however may access your virtual accounting system from any computer on the Internet with any browser  using the username and password set up with Intuit to access your virtual office.  This allows you or your clients as the business owner(s) to create invoices, record customer/client payments, record and calculate sales tax, check or process your own payrolls (if you want to do your own), and order ad hoc reports anytime.  Our accounting services and optional payroll/contractor management services can include wholesale licensing fees each month so that you do not have to pay these in addition to our financial management of your system.  We can help businesses of all sizes to utilize or set up computerized general and special ledgers to meet their needs.  Add-on services can include accounts payable, accounts receivable, and fixed asset management as well.

Jeanine codes your monthly transactions for profit and loss, balance sheet, cash flow, payroll summary (if our payroll client), and occasionally other reports needed for timely financial updates for full-service monthly accounting clients.  This may be done as an annual service in getting ready for income tax preparation or other special project for a company.

Jeanine will need monthly transaction downloads from your bank either automatically sent to our QBO Accountant system or manually uploaded to your cloud folder at https://www.remotebusinesssolutionsinc.org/portal.php.  It is also helpful during internal audits or your client check-up meetings for you to access to your online banking transaction details.  To start using the client portal please log in or register here. 

Required items needed from clients include all checking, savings, credit card, and line of credit transactions that must be coded by me properly to build your monthly and annual financial statements.  Additionally, if you are not doing your payroll through our company, then you must upload your payroll/contractors summaries report to our QBO Accountant system or upload it to your cloud folder every time that you process a payroll and/or make contractor payments.  Your financials will not be up to date unless we have your timely payroll information.  Additionally we recommend that you allow me and my partered PayCycle vendor to help you set up direct deposit for paying your employees and contractors when you contract with us for full-service payroll and/or contractor management services.

Get help with accounting set-up, accounting management, payroll / contractors, and tax compliance.  Clients may manage their own online accounting systems or hire Jeanine to manage them on their behalf.  Please let us know if you need any special assistance with managing your online banking, our payroll/contractors department, billing department, or scanning/copying services.  Jeanine generally manages and coordinates the workers (employees, contractors, vendors) herself, so will be glad to resolve any questions or issues, that you bring to her attention. 

Be in compliance.  The IRS views failing to pay payroll taxes as the cardinal sin of tax delinquency because a large portion of the payroll taxes are your employees' withholdings. Not paying your company's payroll taxes is tantamount to stealing your employees' money in the eyes of the IRS.  Income taxes and other taxes are normally required of businesses and owners.  Jeanine and associates can help you with tax compliance.

Please make a 15-minute appointment on the Appointments page for an evaluation of your needs and answers to your questions about our services.  Jeanine will call you at the scheduled time and date.  If appropriate, our meeting will be followed by an engagement offer with your pricing for the services needed.  Thank you for considering our services.  Jeanine and associates look forward to helping you.
