Working with Cb.
Introductory Package. Getting settled with a new bookkeeper can take as little as two weeks or as much as 3 months, depending on the needs and complexity of your business and the time you have available.
Cb's Introductory Package allows us to set up and cleanup at your pace before moving into a weekly routine. Our Lead Bookkeeper will work with you to draft a custom Bookkeeping SOP (Standard Operating Procedures), collect all of the logins and other details needed to get your bookkeeping running smoothly, and customize our standard checklist routines to the needs of your business.
Weekly Custom Bookkeeping. Once our Lead Bookkeeper has the bookkeeping routine running smoothly, they'll train your bookkeeping team and supervise their weekly work in your books. The team will work on your books during a weekly 3-day cycle:
Day 1 (Mondays)
The Transaction Processor processes receipts and bank data based on the SOP "always rules".
Day 2 (Tuesdays)
The Assistant Bookkeeper reviews the Transaction Processor's work and finishes categorizing any remaining transactions that didn't fall under the SOP. They are also responsible for completing monthly reconciliations as well as monitoring for common errors and mistakes in the books.
Day 3 (Wednesdays)
The Account Manager reviews the processing work of both the Transaction Processor and Assistant Bookkeeper, responds to non-urgent communication from you and works on one-time projects and scheduled maintenance routines. At the end of their reserved time in your books, the Account Manager sends you a message confirming that our work for the week is complete and they will summarize any action requests and notes on unusual activity they want to bring to your attention.
The Lead Bookkeeper will gather statements, payroll reports and other financial documents as they become available. They will also review the team's work and backup your accounting files each week.
Our team members are all employees of Carpetbag Enterprises and undergo background checks as a condition of their hiring. Access to accounts where bank transactions can be triggered is strictly limited to our Lead Bookkeeper. Cb maintains a strict policy that prohibits any member of the team from initiating or enabling bank or credit card withdrawals, deposits or transfers.
