Accounting Service

Does Profit Pad Bookkeeping support both cash and accrual accounting?

Profit Pad Bookkeeping supports bookkeeping on a accrual basis. This means that we record transactions based on the transaction date so you can capture a clearer picture of your company’s financial health. Accrual accounting works well for project based companies.

Alternatively, bookkeeping can be done on an cash basis. In this system, revenues and expenses are recorded when they’re received (deposited) or paid, regardless of when the money is actually has been deposited into your bank or charged to your bank/credit card.

We do not offer bookkeeping on an cash basis, but we can help if you file your return on cash basis. Chat with an Onboarding Specialist for more details.

We don’t file your taxes with the IRS, but we make sure you’re set up perfectly for tax time. We prepare a Year End Financial package that contains everything you need to file.

If you have a CPA, we’ll work with them directly. We can even give your CPA their own Profit Pad Bookkeeping login, so you don’t have to worry about emailing back and forth or sending them your files.

About Profit Pad Bookkeeping & Payroll services

How does bookkeeping help my business?

Bookkeeping gives you a crystal clear picture of where your money is coming (and going.) Since we focused on accrual accounting practice, you will be able to determine your actual profit and loss from your sales. When your books are up-to-date, you get an accurate measure of your business’s health, and can make smarter financial decisions.

Having accurate books pays off at tax time, too. When your bookkeeping is up-to-date, you avoid scrambling to get caught up before the tax deadline, or missing out on any deductions.

What does my bookkeeper do?

Your bookkeeper reconciles your accounts, categorizes your transactions, and produces your financial statements. They also make adjustments to your books to ensure they’re tax-compliant.

Occasionally your bookkeeper might need your input on things like categorizing a transaction properly, but we try our best to make bookkeeping as hands-off as possible for you.

You can also book a call with your bookkeeper (or send them a message) whenever you’d like. There’s no extra fee or hourly charges for support—we’re always happy to nerd out about bookkeeping and your financial statements.

Where are your bookkeepers located? What are their qualifications?

The majority of our bookkeepers work out of our California headquarters. We don’t outsource your bookkeeping, and we never will.

Profit Pad Bookkeeping staffs are trained in-house by our Account Managers. Our Account Managers are fully qualified where they hold bachelor and master degrees in business. Collectively, they have experience from supporting various industries to small business owners with 1 to 30 employees. Our team knows how to serve your business’s unique bookkeeping needs, and they do it very well.
