Why is bank and credit card reconciliation important?
There are a number of reasons, but in this post we’ll focus on a chosen few. As an accounting process (which I Master as your virtual Bookkeeper & Expert Accountant all, for a third-of-the-cost-for-a-CPA), reconciliation essentially balances out your business accounts so that the numbers are in agreement. Another way to put it is to make sure all of your accounts tell the same “cash-flow story” from when the money entered your business to when it left.
Usually, you can reconcile your accounts in one of two ways:
#1. Analytics Review
Businesses make an educated guess on what should be in each account, and then verify this inside the actual accounts.
#2. Documentation Review
The bank transactions are matched with the actual transaction paper trail, adjusting and fixing any mistakes or errors along the way. Sounds easy enough and can be if you’re not a multi-million dollar company, But…
This process when dealing with complex financials, is not easy, but it has to be precise…every time.
That’s why it’s imperative to have a Master Bookkeeper and Accountant in your corner managing this for you on a weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis.
