Hey, I'm Lotte! I'm an expert bookkeeper who has supported over 60 female entrepreneurs with their bookkeeping needs, allowing them to focus on running their business.
What makes my approach unique? I see myself as joining your team and being there to really support you. This may look like demystifying accounting words or reports, ensuring you're always in the loop, working with your accountant and/or managers as needed, and creating a custom and tailored plan that works for you and your business.
I run my business with transparency and the pricing should reflect that too. My pricing is based on the type and amount of work I do monthly, not how big your company is or how much it brings in. If you ever have any questions, please ask and I'd be happy to explain the calculations.
Below you will learn more about my clean-up bookkeeping process and the pricing
Clean-up bookkeeping refers to the process of sorting through, correcting, and systematizing a company's financial records that may have been neglected, mismanaged, or inconsistently maintained over a period of time. It involves rectifying discrepancies, ensuring transactions are correctly categorized, and reconciling account balances. The objective is to bring all financial data up-to-date and providing a clear and accurate snapshot of the business's financial health. It's a crucial step before transitioning to regular monthly bookkeeping or when preparing for tax season or financial reviews.
Clean-up bookkeeping is tailored for businesses that may have fallen behind on their current or prior year's financial record-keeping. Whether minimal work has been done or there have been inaccuracies in the existing records, this service ensures that everything is set right. Engaging in a clean-up is especially vital to ensure you're well-prepared and compliant for tax season, presenting an accurate reflection of your financial landscape.
responsibilities for the client:
clean-ups are only offered to first-time clients
initial assessment & collection
I will review the current state of the financial records to understand the extent of the clean-up needed. We will go through a checklist together to ensure I have everything I need to get started.
You leave the number-crunching to me - I'll take care of all the bookkeeping tasks as discussed in the initial assessment. You can focus on what you do best - growing your business.
Reconciliation is our way of ensuring there's perfect alignment between our records in the accounting software and your actual bank statements, loans, and other accounts. Once I've got all the necessary details from you, I'll thoroughly reconcile each account.
Upon reconciliation, you'll receive detailed monthly financial report, including the Profit and Loss Statement, Balance Sheet, and General Ledger that we will want to review to ensure everything is categorized as it needs to be and no transactions were overlooked.
corrections & final reports
Any discrepancies, misclassifications, or overlooked transactions are corrected and final reports of your Profit and Loss, Balance Sheet, and General Ledger are sent to you.
I'll send any questions related to your transactions or bookkeeping to you in your client portal and you'll get an email or text notification letting you know. If I'm missing statements for any of your accounts, I'll ask you to upload those.
Review & Feedback
Once the clean-up is complete, we can review the updated records together and I can offer insights, recommendations, or best practices moving forward.
A deposit of $400 is mandatory to begin work. This amount will be deducted from your final bill.
There is an initial base fee of $250. All tasks and work undertaken will be billed at an hourly rate of $60.
An invoice will be sent to you for the $400 deposit. Work will not start until this invoice has been paid.
Upon completion of the project, you will be invoiced for the outstanding amount, which is calculated as the $250 base fee plus any accumulated hourly charges, minus the initial $400 deposit.
Payment can be made directly from the invoice.
