What We Do

Brighter Light has the skills to serve the needs of your business through all of its phases and transitions. We love to develop long-term relationships to provide on-going accounting support, but are also available for one-time projects, systems set-up, or training.

Service packages are designed for your needs and can include any or all of the following.

SET-UP & TRAINING

If needed, we will create or convert your financial system, starting with an intelligent Chart of Accounts that has your unique reporting needs in mind. We’ll take advantage of all of the modern tools that make your system easy and efficient. Then we will teach you how to use it. New businesses click here for more ways we can support you.

MONTHLY MAINTENANCE

The basic need of all businesses: reconciling asset accounts on a monthly basis, including Cash, Inventory, Loans or Mortgages, whether you do the basic bookkeeping or have us do it for you.

PAYROLL

We do payroll for full-service bookkeeping clients. We can also set you up with a full-service software solution and teach you how to use it.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS & ANALYSIS

We will provide your customized Income Statements, Cash Flows, & Balance Sheets monthly.

This is where we differ from the data-entry bookkeepers out there: We’ll teach you how to read and better understand these financial statements and provide consultation on what opportunities for improvement we see. You get a CFO or Management Accountant without having to keep one on the payroll.

FINANCIAL STATEMENT PRESENTATION

We are available to present your financials for you, whether that means in front your Board of Directors, to a potential investor or in a package to your lender for a small business loan or mortgage.

END OF YEAR & TAX PREP

As the keeper of your books, we will review your financial information for presentation to your CPA or EA and answer any and all of their questions for easy and timely filing of Federal, State and Local Tax returns.

We also prepare Forms 1099 & 1096 for any independent contractors or service providers you have paid throughout the year.

RESOURCES

 If we can’t do it, we know somebody who can. Growing businesses need good advice from professionals, but they don’t need to waste money. Find the right people with recommendations from somebody you trust.
