Benefits of Our Bank Reconciliation Outsourcing Services

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.

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 Are Bank Reconciliations Important?

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.

We've been customers of Steph's bookkeeping for a couple years now. Steph and her team are always on top of it and Steph's experience and knowledge shows immensely when it comes to handling her business. We are very satisfied with this company and would recommend them for anyone looking for a competent bookkeeper who is responsive and genuinely hard working. As a business owner I expect a high level of professionalism that is expected from me and my own business. Steph's bookkeeping fits the bill!!

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.
