Bookkeeping Services

Accounting a la Carte will perform bookkeeping and accounting for your business and process all relevant financial documents and data, including, but not limited to, bank deposits, cancelled checks, credit card transactions, and cash receipts provided to us in order to maintain your books. We will make necessary changes that you request.

We provide non-audited compilations of information provided by you as the business owner. All of the transactions will be accounted for in your accounting system.  It is your responsibility to provide us with the proper documents on a timely basis. While every effort will be made to send you reminders of filing deadlines, if any, it is ultimately your responsibility, as the business owner, to send us all the required information on time, in order for us to properly complete and file any reports/returns on a timely basis.
If you do not notify us of any changes or errors within a reasonable time, we will assume that you agree to the financial statements completed by us, and no refunds of any fees will be given for work already performed, unless it is proven that even after attempts to correct any errors, or make any requested changes, the financials are not compliant with generally accepted accounting principles. Please note that change requests that are based on “preferences” of other accounting professionals, may be charged additional fees.

Payroll Services

If you need our payroll services, Accounting a la Carte will assist you with complete payroll processing services by creating payroll within QuickBooks.

Our all-inclusive payroll service includes the following: payroll information processing, payroll checks, or direct deposits, quarterly payroll tax processing and deposits, pay-period specific reports, and year-end tax documentation (W-2s for then-active employees).

Our payroll services may be rendered to you by Accounting a la Carte or a third party payroll provider with whom we may contract to provide these services to you. It is your responsibility, as the business owner, to provide us with your time sheet, if applicable, on a timely basis, in order for us to prepare your payroll timely.

Depending on the delivery option you choose, you are required to provide us your employees’ information 2-3 business days prior to your pay date.

Accounting a la Carte prepares your payroll checks (drawn on your own bank account) and delivers them to you (FedEx - shipping at FedEx cost), OR directly deposits the net pay amounts into each employee’s bank account (bank fee per direct deposit may apply).

Please ensure that you email or fax us with your employees’ pay information at least 2 business days prior to payday (for checks) and 3 business days prior to payday for Direct Deposits.

Our cut off time is 3PM each day for payroll processing. For direct deposits, Accounting a la Carte’s payroll provider will ACH debit the net payroll amount from your designated bank account, two days PRIOR to your scheduled payday.

Your employees’ will receive direct deposits on the scheduled payday. Please ensure that your bank account is properly funded for this purpose. Should the attempted ACH direct deposit debit bounce back due to insufficient funds, your employees’ scheduled direct deposits will be stopped, until we can verify the sufficiency of funds. Upon the first of such occurrence, we will require that your bank accounts have sufficient funds for the total direct deposit amount for the next pay period, at least three to five full business days prior to your scheduled payday.

Accounting a la Carte’s Payroll Service impounds all employee payroll tax deductions, as well as the employer’s tax requirements, by issuing a check for the amount of taxes to be impounded onto our payroll account, and deposit them on your behalf when due.
