Accounting & Controllership

Our Bookkeeping and Controllership Services enable you to feel confident that your accounting system accurately reflects your current situation so you can concentrate on running your business. Our services are designed to complete your daily financial record-keeping tasks as well as your month-end closing tasks, followed by preparation of your monthly, quarterly and yearly financial reports and analysis of your business.

Our services include:

  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Cash Management
  • Journal Entry and General Ledger
  • Account Reconciliations
  • Payroll
  • Payroll Tax Returns
  • Sales Tax Returns
  • Monthly Closing
  • Fixed Assets Accounting and Depreciation
  • Monthly, Quarterly, and Yearly Financial Analysis and Reports

We primarily work with QuickBooks and Creative Solutions; however, we can work with your software of choice. On a monthly basis, we will close your books, prepare your financial reports, (balance sheet and profit and loss statements), review your outstanding payables and aging receivables and check your cash flow to help identify specific areas that need attention. As a result, you will be able to understand your company’s financial position each month, quarter, and year. We will help you to manage your business finances to keep you on the right track.

“I and my companies enjoy a wide range of services from HCL, including bookkeeping, tax planning, and business evaluation/formation advice (and their associated tax implications). One of HCL’s key employees, Maryann (Svetlecic), has done an excellent job of organizing the financial controls, including bookkeeping, that an entrepreneurial small business needs to allow management to focus on growth. Jerry (Lipman) has been a key advisor to my companies for a number of years and I gladly followed him when he decided to join HCL. He and HCL’s partners made the transition a seamless one and introduced me to the firm’s unique skill set – A combination of people and skills that I have found to be invaluable.

Whether timely tax planning at end of year because of unexpected large fee checks arriving (a problem we all would like to have) or cogent advice as I structured multi-billion dollar bids for two state lotteries, Jerry, Maryann, and the staff at HCL have exceeded my experiences with other firms and I would recommend them highly.”

“We will go the extra mile for our clients. We will come to your office to perform our work if that works best for you. Even if you do your own books, we will come out as often as you like – monthly or quarterly – to review and clean-up your books. For some of our clients, we go as far as making bank deposits and even paying your bills.”
