Bookkeeping Cleanup in Illinois

It’s easy for small business owners to allow their finances to get out of control. When you own your own business, you wear multiple hats and may not have time to organize your books.

Luckily, Steph’s Books offers the optimal solution. Our Chicago-based online bookkeeping cleanup services can ensure your books are organized and tidy come tax season. Don’t wait until April to tackle account reconciliation — by then, it’s too late. Instead, address your potential problems now and plan to catch up on your books with an expert.

Why Hire A Professional Cleanup & Catch-Up Bookkeeper?

Having a professional QuickBooks® ProAdvisor bookkeeper is the only way to get your business’ books in perfect condition with no discrepancies. Doing it yourself presents many problems, including falling behind on bookkeeping and lacking time to deal with the issue. When you use our bookkeeping cleanup services, you can enjoy several advantages, including:

  • Optimal tax season preparation: You can be ready for tax season when you use a professional to clean up your bookkeeping. This is a stressful time for anyone but becomes even more difficult for a business owner who hasn’t prepared for it.
  • Improved decision-making: You get a better understanding of your finances, which can help you make better decisions. With more information about your financial picture, you know when you can afford to hire more help or need to reduce expenses, for example.
  • A stronger new year: When you begin a new year, you can concentrate on ways to grow your business instead of worrying about your financial accounts.
  • Financial savings on employment: Hiring Steph’s Books instead of an in-house employee to do your bookkeeping saves you money in the long run. It’s cheaper than employing someone full-time to handle your accounting.
  • Increased time for your business: If you hire a professional to do your bookkeeping, you can dedicate more of your time to other parts of your job. Our experts take care of this work and keep you organized while you spend more time working with clients, securing procedures and more.
  • Less bookkeeping errors: Trying to do everything yourself can result in errors that harm your business. A bookkeeper’s job is to focus on your financials, and their background provides the right tools to be successful.
  • Scale up or down: Your outsourced bookkeeping team can take on more or less as your business needs change. You can continue working with us without hiring more in-house employees.

Reasons You Might Need Quickbooks Cleanup Services

When you’re a small business owner, you work on several things at once. With your busy schedule, you might not have the time or experience to keep up with bookkeeping. Instead, you allow receipts to pile up and ignore your invoices while focusing on other issues.

You are likely performing a large number of tasks, and bookkeeping might not be your number one priority. Day-to-day priorities often take precedence over long-term jobs, like managing your finances — especially if you are not familiar with bookkeeping.

Forgetting to manage your books correctly can lead to several challenges later. While it might not seem like a pressing deal at the moment, you want to be as prepared as possible for tax season. Catch-up and cleanup bookkeeping can help solve these problems and prevent future ones from arising.

Why Your Books Should Always Stay Up-To-Date

Several challenges can arise if you don’t keep your books updated. Some of the ways cleanup bookkeeping helps your business include:

  • Catch-up bookkeeping allows you to avoid violations and fines from incorrect taxes.
  • Quickbooks catch-up can help you steer clear of any financial shortcomings.
  • We ensure you have accurate financial statements, which allow you to forecast and make decisions accurately.
  • Well-kept books make it easier to get loans.
  • Updated books also enable you to prepare for business emergencies.

We just transitioned from a prior bookkeeper to Steph's Bookkeeping Service and found the experience very good. Stephanie cleaned up our 2023 books quickly and professionally, took over payroll and estimated tax submittals with ease. We look forward to working closely with Stephanie as we continue to grow.
We have been using Steph's Bookkeeping for 5+ years now. The monthly and quarterly reports are always on time and accurate. This makes easy work for the accountant to close out the year. As a small business owner, the service provided by Steph and her team is beyond helpful. It allows me to focus on the day-to-day operations knowing that the accounting is being managed by a professional. It's one less thing that I have to do at the end of the month. If you're a small business owner, then you understand the value of that time savings.Any questions I have had over the years are answered in a reasonable amount of time & in a professional manner. You will not regret hiring this company to help manage your books. This is money well spent in my opinion.

I run a small health care practice in a rural area of East Central Illinois for nearly 25 years. In the last 5 years, I’ve outsourced book-keeping— “leaving it to the professionals” instead of continuing to do work that I’m not good at (also another layer of work as both a physician and business owner). Steph’s has been the best solution yet! She was able to dive right in and eventually assigned my account to Melanie. I continue to do payroll and my local CPA continues to do the taxes.The ongoing book work was a hole that has been filled to my satisfaction. Steph’s team is professional, polite and prompt despite my occasional delays in communication.. I plan to be a long-term client and grateful for this service.
