Rescue My Bookkeeping
I am self employed as a bookkeeper for several small businesses. I use reconcile with codes worksheet to quickly add up expenses, reconcile bank statements, gather GST information and provide a complete breakdown of expenses that transfer easily to a software or tax program. What used to take me hours to add tape and breakdown for tax preparers, now has simplified and sped up the process. Since it is very easy to use, I can train my clients on it to do at their own location and have more control over their own companies bookkeeping. The office in home calculates spreadsheet is so accurate that it enables all of my clients to see how much they are actually spending in their own home on their company.

I am a Senior Tax Practitioner and a Certified Professional Compiler and have been professionally preparing income taxes for 13 years. We have calculated how long it takes to straighten, sort by date, source on payment and categorize 100 expense receipts. The time was 1.25 minutes each time we had to touch the receipts resulting in a bookkeeping charge of 6.25 hours for 100 receipts, costing the client 6.25 x $70 per hour =$437.50. We have found as a bookkeeper we should be trying to save the business money not costing more. When I used Simplified Ledger developed by C2 the same 100 receipts now cost the client $25.00, if he/she post the receipts. If he/she hires me to post the receipts it would be 2.08 hours x $70 =$145.60 for a savings of $291.90. While working with small businesses and large, both incorporated and proprietorships, we have come to realize a third of their budget is used in wages. This does not include accounting fees with the high raising accountants and bookkeepers' fees, it is a relief to know there is an alternative I can provide to my clients not only in bookkeeping but also administration solutions in the running of their business with C2.
Thank you to C2online and their products for providing bookkeepers with valuable information all in one place…..best of all…..saves us hours of creating these ourselves. You make us look good to our clients.

I have had the privilege of working with Lisa on programs designed to help bookkeepers, when I was the Executive Director of the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada. C2online products create an opportunity for bookkeepers to expand their knowledge, level of service, and revenues. I quite enjoy working with Lisa and am looking for ways that we can work together with my new company, ihonest.com She is known as a subject matter expert in the bookkeeping industry and I have found myself calling on her for advice on numerous occasions.

I love the Simplified Ledger. It saves so much time when entering things like cash receipts, expense reported for all types of business or using it as financials for proprietorships because it allows to input both income and expenses and the formulas are designed to not only total them for you but to separate into each category, saving time and money as input into a accounting program is not necessary.
After attending a presentation on Thursday hosted by Lisa, I commend her on both the services she offers, and her affiliation as a professional. Her presentation was very well done and I look forward to hearing her speak again in the near future. I will consider both her investment option, and the services she offers through C2.

The in Home Office Calcuator spreadsheet which is not only great in figuring out what is an allowable expense for home office use but incredibly beneficial for figuring out home use in home based business such as a day home. The simple to follow walk around to get the square footage of your home and what amount you use for business on the first tab and then you just input your expenses in the second tab and it’s formulas tell you what you can claim as an “in Home Office” expense. I found this spreadsheet very helpful and time saving in figuring out total expenses as well as being very accurate.

The Plan Specialist
Our company was forced to face the government in Tax Court because of the method our previous accountant completed our records and communicated to Canada Revenue Agency. Our previous accountant basically abandoned us to deal with this on our own. We placed the whole file in Darlene’s hands at the Morinville Business Centre knowing her capabilities as a tax advisor. Having Darlene to speak on our behalf and represent our file even though she did not prepare the records, took a huge weight off our shoulders. Although we have yet to finalize the whole experience with the Canada Revenue Agency as the paperwork is still not all in, we do believe we could not have dealt with the Tax Court of Canada on our own. We do believe that Darlene will continue to speak on our behalf until it is done to the last final piece of paperwork. Knowing that our bookkeeping is now being handled by the staff at MBC that utilize C2online's tools - we sleep better at night. Our contacts with the government have been less and as soon as we do receive any communications from them, we immediately refer them to Darlene and she handles them. Success or failure regarding the whole ordeal, we now do not feel alone to deal with it. No one wants to end up in Tax Court but if we disagree with something the government has done, we firmly believe we need to stand up. Having someone who knows about taxes and how to talk to the government, made the task a lot easier.

Simplified Ledger - Business It was like balancing a cheque book, after some simple instruction. I found the work sheets so easy to follow. The Simplified Ledger was so easy, I did my whole year based on those worksheets. I swear by these worksheets, they have cut down my bookkeeping costs. This system really works. I recommend that you try it, you won’t regret it; and there’s no confusion.

When working with a business for over 10 years they had always relied on a professional to take care of their books. Thinking they should try to do it within office, they hired help for one year. After 3 nightmare bookkeepers, an enormous amount of money and a bookkeeping mess; he had to take on the bookkeeping him self. With the help of Simplified Ledger , he was able to do the records including bank reconciliations while he was out in the field. The ability to use a computer keyboard and matching his receipts to the statements was the level of skill he needed. The time to record the information was less than it took to record information into a cheque book.

In my husband’s business of 15 years, we’ve been paying for a bookkeeper because I have a full time job. After talking to Darlene, she suggested I get our 16 year old daughter involved in the bookkeeping end of things. Darlene taught her how to match the receipts to the source of payment. She learned how to use the Simplified Ledger which had a prepare manual attached. I saw how easy it was to do, so I have now taken over the job.
