All business owners need cash flow. For busy owners providing good service often means the day’s billing is left to the end of the day, when they are the most tired, more apt to make errors, and would rather be getting a good night’s sleep so they can face the next day.
Standard or seasonal billing service for those months when business is exceptionally busy is as easy as picking up the phone or sending a fax or email. Invoices are routinely prepared and mailed within 24-hours of receipt. Aging reports are provided monthly and statements mailed to overdue accounts.
Receiving the check is great, but it doesn’t help your cash flow until the check has cleared and the money is in the bank. If you spend most of your time on the road or job site, chances are checks may often accumulate in your vehicle or on your desk and you aren’t making deposits as often as you should. ALPICE Bookkeeping can record your payments and make deposits for you. Confirmation of deposit, along with a deposit summary indicating what clients have paid, will be either emailed or faxed to you.
Clients utilizing our lockbox service never even see the checks as your client invoices reflect our lockbox address instead of your actual business address. ALPICE Bookkeeping will pick up your mail, process checks received, and then deposit payments into your account while you’re busy focusing on your business.
Incoming bills may also be sent to the lockbox address. Upon receipt they will be reviewed and approved for payment before checks are prepared for your signature.
