Healthcare Practices

Medical office administrators are usually responsible for countless tasks essential to running a medical practice.  QuickBooks can help with tasks like vendor payment, payroll, year-end tax filing, customer billing, and cash flow management.

How QuickBooks may Help with Payroll

In some medical practices, handwritten timesheets, antiquated payroll software, and complex spreadsheets are used to keep track of payroll. While it may be possible for a health care CPA to accurately handle payroll using outdated systems, they can be unnecessarily time-consuming. QuickBooks makes payroll simpler and more streamlined by offering features that automatically entering time tracking, payroll expenses, and tax withholdings. When a healthcare accountant has access to all of their payroll information in a centralized place, it usually becomes easier for the medical office to run with fewer errors. Generally, any errors that do arise can be easily managed by your CPA.

Using QuickBooks for Customer Billing

If a medical office can not collect payments from patients, it may not be providing services for too much longer At Fusion CPA, we understand that customer billing can be a disorganized and inefficient affair. Some medical offices may even track and write invoices by hand. Others might be limited to accepting payment by cash or check. This can make it challenging for patients to pay their bills, it usually causes disorganized bookkeeping, and it may result in some services not being charged. QuickBooks may help health care accountants by making it easy to produce, track, and send invoices. During the implementation of the software, tailored invoices bearing the medical office’s logo and contact information can be created. These can be sent in printed documents through the mail or via email.

When invoices are sent via email by QuickBooks, your customers have the option to pay their bills electronically using the payment methods approved by your medical office. The work of tracking down invoices can become easier as QuickBooks can help monitor when invoices are paid. It also offers features that can be set to notify your accountants when invoices are past due, and it sends reminders when bills are overdue.

Use QuickBooks for Year-End Tax Filings

Whether you work in a large hospital or a family clinic, your medical center may have to file taxes. Much of this health care tax planning may fall on the medical office administrator. The difficulty of this task should depend on how your organization maintained accurate bookkeeping reports throughout the year. Fortunately, QuickBooks makes it possible for your CPA to enter records and receipts throughout the year. Having all of your accounting information in one location should make it easier to refer back to previous reports when they are needed.

Veterinary

Working with animals doesn’t mean that your bookkeeping setup should look like a zoo. A veterinary clinic or chain of clinics can enjoy improved accountability and strategic growth when the right software and practices are in place.

Anyone who owns or manages a veterinarian clinic knows that this type of operation is so much more than a business. You are really welcoming your clients and their pets into your family.

The surprising side effect is that day-to-day operations at your clinic may become much smoother. Outsourcing your accounting and tax planning needs aren’t for the birds if you run an animal clinic!

Bring In Veterinary Clinic Financial Advisers

Nobody would call a veterinary clinic accountant if a poodle had a sprained paw. That is clearly a task that is meant for an experienced veterinarian. Why do so many veterinarians assume that they have to handle their own veterinary clinic bookkeeping when that is clearly a task that’s meant for a veterinary clinic CPA? Taking on too much is a recipe for an inefficient veterinary clinic tax planning and financial strategy that can potentially leak revenue. The leader of a veterinary clinic or chain should rely on a team of veterinary clinic financial advisers to make sure that they have access to the latest innovations and practices that are available. The exciting thing about the veterinary clinic bookkeeping and business tools that are available is that everything is scalable. That means that world-class software can be tailored to fit the needs of a small practice or multi-state chain.

Accountability Based Veterinary Clinic CFO Advisory

Bringing in an outside firm to provide veterinary clinic accounting and financial advisory services isn’t just about outsourcing your bookkeeping needs. It’s actually about creating a system that allows you to stay in control of your own accounting practices on a long-term basis. A big part of getting insights and technical help from a veterinarian CPA should involve identifying and setting goals that are specific to the size and nature of your practice. Here are some goals that the right mix of financial knowledge and technical savvy can help your veterinarian practice to accomplish:

  • Better organization
  • Designated access for specific employees
  • A secure way to store files and records
  • Cleaner financial reports
  • Easier long-term planning
  • Easier internal auditing
  • Easier access to records
  • Streamlined payment processing
  • Cleaner tax reporting and preparation
  • QuickBooks Online integration

Having access to veterinary clinic CFO advisory services can help you maximize your current position. An underlying goal is obviously going to be improved profitability. However, a good bookkeeping plan doesn’t begin and end with your bottom line. Having a system that makes sense for your specific practice can actually make day-to-day operations more pleasant for both employees and clients. Your staff will be able to do their jobs more effectively without confusion, headaches, and red tape that result from outdated processes. This leaves more time for clinic-specific innovations and improvements!

Identify The Ideal Veterinarian Accounting Solutions

QuickBooks can be used to assist with developing an efficient system for veterinary clinic accounting. The accurate, effective way QuickBooks creates and keeps records can make day-to-day and tax planning so streamlined.

Our team of veteran CPAs can help you develop veterinary clinic financial accountability based forecasting and monitoring tools designed to help you boost your success. Our clients commonly say that having our team of QuickBooks Online accountants as part of their team allows them to be more in control of the day-to-day and long-term operations of their businesses.

eCommerce

Some estimates claim that by the year 2021, e-commerce sales around the world will reach $4.9 trillion. Proper tax planning and accounting may help you achieve your goal by giving you a clear picture of where your money is going to help you make accounting decisions

These informed choices might lead your e-commerce company to long-term profitability – that’s where QuickBooks comes in. QuickBooks Online is a comprehensive accounting software. It can be used to track cash flow, count inventory, and understand the cost of goods sold.

How E-commerce Companies Use QuickBooks to Track Their Cash Flow

Cash flow management is usually a key aspect of an e-commerce company CPA role. Traditionally, cash flow is calculated by determining the amount of cash that is available at the beginning and end of a set period. Cash flow and profitability are not the same. A profitable business may not have the cash to pay its bills. Conversely, a business may meet all its financial obligations but not be turning a profit. Using QuickBooks may make it easier for your or your e-commerce company’s CPA to track cash flow and provide a series of reports and projections.

Set up a cash flow projection using QBO

Our e-commerce business accountants recommend working with an expert to set up these controls. So, if you are new to operating accounting software or you want to get started with professionals – our team here at Fusion CPA is here to help.

QuickBooks and Inventory Management for E-commerce Companies

For your e-commerce company to be scalable, sustainable, and profitable, you or your e-commerce company’s accountant should have a firm grasp on inventory management. Failing to monitor your inventory could lead to overselling or overestimating your e-commerce company’s inventory needs. QuickBooks should also make handling your inventory easier. When you purchase or sell products, inventory quantities can be set to automatically update, so you know when to reorder and what to reorder. It also has the functionality to help track what you have ordered if you set up vendor categories. Then, once all categories are in place your e-commerce company’s bookkeeper can organize the contact information of several vendors into one place to make reordering easier.

Use QuickBooks to Track the Cost of Goods Sold

The cost of goods sold is the cost of labor and materials used to create goods or offer a service. Knowing the cost of goods sold usually helps you analyze and estimate your bottom line. If the cost of goods sold rises, your company’s net profits may decrease. An increase in the cost of goods could be beneficial from a tax planning standpoint as it usually means you will have increased expenses and lower tax liability. However, there may be less profit for you or for shareholders. When your e-commerce company sells an item, you or your CPA can run QuickBooks’s “Transaction Journal Report” on the invoice or sales receipt. This will present the Sales/Accounts Receivable transaction and the Inventory/COGS transaction to determine the cost of goods sold.

If you wish to initiate a partnership, buy out another firm, or sell your firm, understanding law firm bookkeeping may help you evaluate the worth of your firm. QuickBooks is a powerful comprehensive software that may help you make sense of complicated processes related to bookkeeping.

Where to Start Implementing QuickBooks

A general understanding of basic business accounting may help you evaluate your law firm from a business management perspective.

  • liabilities – what your law firm owes others
  • equity – assets minus liability
  • income – revenue you have earned over a pre-defined period
  • expenses – what you spent over a pre-defined period

How To Create A Balance Sheet

Traditionally, having an accurate balance sheet is a key part of law firm tax planning. Your balance sheet should represent your law firm’s financial position at the end of a specific date. It’s like a screenshot of your law firm’s financial position at a specific point in time. QuickBooks makes it easy for your law firm accountant to prepare and update your balance sheet. First, you or your law firm accountant should determine the balance sheet they want QuickBooks to generate. The five options are as follows.

  • standard
  • detail
  • summary
  • class
  • previous year comparison

The next step is opening QuickBooks and selecting the account from the “File” menu. This account will generate the balance sheet. Select “Reports.” Choose “Company & Financial” using the drop-down menu.Do you have questions about balance sheets? Don’t worry. Fusion CPA’s financial advisers can help you determine the balance sheet that is right for your law firm’s needs.

Real Estate

QuickBooks may be the ideal tool for your real estate business.  QuickBooks may vary depending on your exact industry. There are several tools in QuickBooks that can benefit any sector of the industry – whether you host an AirBNB or you’re flipping houses.

Setting up QuickBooks for Real Estate Bookkeeping

Both the online and desktop versions of QuickBooks starts with setting up your chart of accounts. The decisions you make at this initial stage will determine how your real estate bookkeeping will be recorded from now on.

One of the first steps your real estate accountant might take is setting up cost accounts for your real estate investments. You may find that some accounts you need are not automatically included in the “Chart of Accounts” that QuickBooks generates, so your real estate accountant may need to adjust them accordingly.

Adding Properties As Customers in QuickBooks

You can add properties as if they were customers. QuickBooks allows you to allocate invoices, bills, and expenses under a customer’s name. You can track the expenses and income for each of your properties.

At Fusion CPA, our real estate CPAs can walk you through using QuickBooks to track individual properties. We can also answer questions you may have on sales tax, property tax, and real estate investing.

How To Do Real Estate Tax Planning With QuickBooks

The distinction between being an investor or a business owner will affect the deductions you can take and how passive losses from rental real estate will impact your bottom line. Business owners can usually deduct expenses that investors cannot.

QuickBooks may help you get all the tax deductions you deserve. Its smart organization feature allows you to sort business expenses by categories, so they are automatically ready to use at tax time. These could include marketing, coaching, or training programs you received, real estate licenses, real estate association dues, and brokerage fees.

Some transportation, travel, and meal expenses may be deductible. QuickBooks makes it easier for you to record these by allowing you or those who work for you to take photos of your receipts and automatically match and categorize these receipts for you. QuickBooks allows you to plan quarterly taxes in advance by automatically calculating how much money you need to set aside. QuickBooks can take much of the time and stress out of real estate tax planning.
