About our Accounting Service

Regardless of form (company or individual), businesses are obliged to keep accounting books. However, it may be difficult for companies to maintain their books especially if the staff that would focus on bookkeeping are limited. If you outsource your bookkeeping work to our company, you can concentrate on your core business, and we will take charge of the accounting books and financial statements.

bookkeeping-service

Basic Bookkeeping Service

Clients may choose to provide information to us in a simple Excel sheet, or mail us a copy of the passbook, invoice, receipt etc. and we will record it in our accounting software. From this, we can prepare a trial balance and provide it to our client. We can adjust the timing of receiving the materials and the number of days to prepare the trial balance according to the client’s request. It is also possible to create a management letter as monthly meeting materials, etc., if necessary.

bookkeeping-bpo

Bookkeeping services as part of a larger BPO service

Bookkeeping is an important task that is the foundation for proper accounting books and proper financial and tax filing. Recently, more SMEs are looking at BPOs (business process outsourcing) to upstream processes on their behalf.

The following tasks can also be outsourced:

  • Payments (cash, bank transfer)
  • Invoice preparation
  • Payroll calculation
  • Social insurance work

As the work here is closely tied to bookkeeping, outsourcing these tasks would make the process much more efficient and effective.

cloud-system

Bookkeeping service using cloud software

When outsourcing bookkeeping as part of the BPO service mentioned above, it is necessary to maximize the use of a cloud system to improve both work efficiency and accuracy. For example, by linking internet banking to cloud accounting software, creating entries can be done faster and more accurately. In addition, by using payroll calculation cloud software, it is possible to obtain more upstream employee information, social insurance information, etc. through automatic linkage to improve efficiency. Since the bank account is also linked, the payroll results are automatically reflected in the accounting software, which can help in closing the books monthly much faster.

In our case, if we were to use a cloud software (see example below), we could definitely contribute to our client’s business efficiency.
