The Bookkeeping Process
Checklists: These should be used for consistent professional bookkeeping.
Sales Processes: This includes sales orders, invoicing, receiving payment and following up on late payments.
Purchase Processes: This includes purchase orders, bills, supplier payments and inventory management.
Payroll Processes: This includes the setting up employees, processing of pay runs and reporting on superannuation, PAYG tax withholding and employee entitlements.
Banking Processes: This includes the reconciling of all the bank accounts, the point-of-sale systems and the credit cards used for the business.
Verification of Accounting Figures: it is easy to assume that “the software is always right” but problems can occur for a variety of reasons in the accounts and prior to preparing a BS or other reports.
Reporting to Owner: The financial reports need to be inspected on a regular basis, providing reliable reports, commonly on a monthly and quarterly basis.
