At Forefront Consulting we’re shaping how small businesses can increase their bookkeeping efficiency.
We are a 100% cloud-based, bookkeeping firm that utilizes QuickBooks Online (QBO) accounting software combined with Receipt Bank / Dext (an invoice/receipt/bill auto entry and fetching app) and other apps as required. These programs digitize your accounting system, reduce paper, eliminate receipts, reduce redundant tasks and ultimately increase efficiency.
1. Client Onboarding and QBO Set Up (one-time hourly-based fee)
- Review of your current bookkeeping system with you to clearly understand your business and reporting needs
- Outline a plan for implementing cloud-based accounting tools to tackle your specific pain points and improve efficiency
- Clean up and, if necessary, correct your accounting records. We will reconcile and adjust your accounts and subledgers to agree to previous year end statements.
- Connect QBO to your bank accounts and credit cards to make reconciliations a snap
- We train you and your staff to use the Receipt Bank / Dext app (receipt/invoice entry and fetching app) to allow your business to retrieve information automatically (for supplier invoices, cash expenses etc.). This means very little data entry going forward!
