Get Caught Up

What's a Clean-Up Job?

Cleaning Products

It’s not deliberate. You had good intentions. Time runs away from you because you are busy running a business. Before you know it, your HST deadline is looming AGAIN and you know you’re going to have to spend the weekend getting it done.


Or maybe you had someone who you thought you could trust but got it all wrong because of their inexperience.


Over time the problem becomes so big that:

  • It has taken over your office

  • It keeps you awake at night

  • You don’t know where to start

  • You’re fearful CRA will call

  • You have no idea how much income tax or HST you owe

  • You are completely in the dark

It’s what we call “The Bookkeeping Monster!”

The Good News

We can tame The Bookkeeping Monster because we have a team of highly skilled and dedicated bookkeepers who use the Pure Bookkeeping System to empower business owners in their financial matters, removing confusion, fear and uncertainty and replacing it with clarity, freedom and control.


Because every “rescue job” is as individual as you are we can’t say exactly what we need to do to clean it up, get you up to date or how long it will take. During the initial consultation when we complete a Deep Dive Review, we will explain to you what the problems are and what needs to happen to transform your data file into a source that provides you with reliable information.


We will do whatever it takes to cleanup your books as quickly and efficiently as possible. Some of the issues we will address are:

  • Bank Accounts or Credit Cards that don’t reconcile with the Statements

  • Old unpresented transactions in the Bank Account or Credit Card

  • Revenue accounts that don’t balance with sales reports

  • Accounts Payable and Receivable that don’t balance with the Balance Sheet

  • Accounts Payable and Receivable aren’t “real” i.e. outstanding invoices and bills have already been paid but still showing as outstanding

  • Incorrect previously reported filings with the CRA.

  • Payroll Categories that are incorrectly setup therefore giving you incorrect information on paystubs, vacation and sick leave accruals, incorrect Tax Tables, source deductions and PD7A's & T4's

  • Unreliable Inventory figures


The implications of these issues are:


  • You may be paying the wrong HST, Tax and source deductions for your business and your staff

  • You may be subject to fines and interest

  • You may be making strategic business decisions based on unreliable figures with dire consequences.
