Bank Reconciliation

Bank Reconciliation

As a business owner, you have several obligations, making it challenging to take on additional responsibilities — especially complicated financial processes like bank reconciliation. Creating a bank reconciliation statement for your company can be tedious and time-consuming. With online bank reconciliation services, you can spend less time crunching numbers and more time doing what matters most — running your business.

At Steph’s Bookkeeping Services, we offer professional bank reconciliation in Chicago, IL, and beyond, keeping businesses in the clear by ensuring that their records are accurate.

What Is a Bank Reconciliation?

Bank reconciliation is the process of managing a company’s accounting records by balancing and matching figures to those displayed on its bank statement. Organizations use these documents to compare the recorded amounts on their balance sheets to the corresponding bank statement amounts. Bank reconciliation statements ensure that all of a company’s payments have been processed and all cash collections are deposited.

Why Do You Need a Bank Reconciliation?

Bank reconciliation helps organizations maintain their financial health by verifying that all records and statements are accurate.

Regular bank reconciliations enable you to identify any discrepancies between your company’s bank and book balances and make the necessary adjustments before those contradictions create issues for your business. By neglecting this practice, your business has a higher risk of letting undetected mistakes slip through the cracks, resulting in inaccurate register balances that may impact your company in the long term.

On top of preventing financial duress, bank reconciliation can also help you manage your cash flow and pinpoint any inefficiencies. This practice also makes it easier to generate an accurate tax return during tax season.

Benefits of Outsourcing Your Bank Reconciliation

Though bank reconciliation is an undoubtedly essential process, it can also be time-consuming. When you book bank reconciliation outsourcing services, you can shift the responsibility to seasoned professionals while you focus on pursuing your company’s mission.

Some of the many advantages of outsourcing bank reconciliation services include:

  • Expert assistance: Skilled professionals have the expertise to easily detect and amend any possible bank errors.
  • Fraud identification: An unaffiliated source can reconcile your bank statements to prevent internal corruption by vigilantly reviewing records and pinpointing any fraudulent activity.
  • Overdraft prevention: Managing cash flow is a highly involved process, but reconciliation services safeguard businesses from overdrafts, insufficient funds, extra interest and bounced checks.
  • Collections improvement: Bank reconciliation goes hand in hand with your accounts receivable, so outsourcing these services helps you clear payments and improve your company’s collections.
