Basic bookkeeping is the first and most important building block in having organized accurate information to prepare annual income tax returns. If your bank needs a financial statement to loan you money or as a requirement to continue loaning you money, organized records are a must. Schmidt Associates PC can provide basic bookkeeping services to your company or organization in a cost effective manner.

We can record your transactions from documents you already prepare—check registers, cancelled checks, deposit slips. We will reconcile bank accounts to recorded data to ensure that all transactions are reflected in the records. We can provide detailed reports of all transactions recorded as well as bank reconciliations.

We offer full service bookkeeping including paying your bills, invoicing your customers, preparing sales and use tax returns, and recording all transactions in an organized fashion ready for anything from analyzing trends to preparing tax returns.
