Basic Bookkeeping Tips Handle and Review Checks Carefully – It is easy to be on autopilot when you’re
writing checks and tossing canceled ones into a filing cabinet without reviewing them. Remember:
Those checks are as good as cash. And if something goes wrong, you – not the bank – will be on the
hook. Take the same care with checks as you would with cash. Sign checks using a clear, distinctive
signature that won’t invite forgery. Review canceled checks before anyone else, including your
bookkeeper or employees, sees, them; that way you can catch unauthorized check. And if your business
is a partnership, it’s a good idea to have at least one of the partners co-sign the checks.
Useful Links: I frequently need to translate items from or into another language which I do not know. I
have been using a free application called Google Translate. It allows me to write the word or phrase,
speak it into the phone or submit an image. It easily translates over 90 languages in both their native
alphabet as well as an English alphabet translation.
Deadlines: There are no more filing deadlines for May.
