US Accounting Firm is doing bookkeeping for external business clients.
The US accounting firm needs to manage a team of bookkeepers who do work on the client's (C corporation, S corporation, and / or Limited liability company (LLC).) financial records - their books.
The accounting firm must be sure all the correct processes have been done on the client's financial records and the books are up-to-date and accurate. This includes every task from setting up the client file to the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual and end of year bookkeeping tasks which the bookkeeper must do on the client's (C corporation, S corporation, and / or Limited liability company (LLC) financial records to keep them up to date and within compliance of statutory reporting and filing.
The Comprehensive Procedures Manual must have (as a minimum) 8 Sections:
1. MANAGEMENT AND SETUP OF THE CLIENT'S FILE
2. ONGOING CLIENT MANAGEMENT
3. DAILY TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
4. WEEKLY TASKS / EVERY TWO WEEK TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
5. MONTHLY TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
6. QUARTERLY TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
7. ANNUAL TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
8. END OF YEAR TASKS TO BE COMPLETED
Each of the sections must detail each of the tasks and / or bookkeeping tasks needed to be completed as:
#1 As check sheet and
#2 An explanation of each task listed within the check sheet that the bookkeeper needs to completed on behalf of the Accounting Firm and on behalf of the work which needs to be done for the client's (C corporation, S corporation, and / or Limited liability company (LLC) financial records to keep them up to date and within compliance of statutory reporting and filing.
