SERVICES

Are you a small-business or self-employed owner struggling with bookkeeping? We can make it feel easy with a customized system and bookkeeping training.

1. system building

If your current bookkeeping system needs a makeover, get set to relax while we put your paperwork in order and then train you to track and keep current with your financial reporting.

A professional organization puts priority on the following:
  • An efficient filing system to reduce time locating receipts and statements when you need them.
  • An industry-specific, computerized bookkeeping system that is both simple enough for clerical staff to record daily data and complex enough to support financial reporting for payroll, cash flow, and taxes.

2. SYSTEM TRAINING

Knowing your financial position at all times
is an essential component of effective decision-making.

Then, with internal controls in place, you will feel at ease to work on other areas of the business — like customer service, marketing and researching new products.

Training for you and your staff on accounting software and bookkeeping and tax fundamentals will include all the basic tasks of operating a business:

  • Invoice and expense tracking procedures
  • Accounts payable and receivable reporting and follow up
  • Payroll responsibilities
  • Bank and credit card reconciliations
  • Tax reporting: GST, PST, WCB
  • End of year income tax reporting for the owner

"Anyone looking for training, problem solving and support we highly recommend Great Owl Bookkeeping. Melissa returned our sanity!"

Lori Blackman, Relay Rentals - Powell River BC

A year ago, we were facing year end. With new owners and a new bookkeeper, the purchase of an additional business in the works and changing the accounting software from Sage to QuickBooks, we were totally overwhelmed and frustrated.

Then we were referred to Melissa from Great Owl Bookkeeping. The minute we spoke, Melissa demonstrated a vast wealth of knowledge and a practical approach to the transition. Her calm quiet demeanour and systematic approach instilled confidence, and slowly the frustrations began to disappear.

We worked with Melissa throughout the year developing best practises and setting up and training on QuickBooks. Melissa takes the time to listen and worked with us to find solutions. Anyone looking for training, problem solving and support we highly recommend Great Owl Bookkeeping. Melissa returned our sanity!
