Bookkeeping For Lawyers

Delivering the "great accounting" verdict law firms need and want

Whether you have a small or large law firm, the ability to stay compliant is essential to both your success and survival as a law firm. Unfortunately, that’s not always easy because you’re the expert in the law, not accounting or bookkeeping.

Your retainer fees from clients (and how or when used) are problematic because you don’t “own” those funds until they have been earned. Also, you may handle personal injury settlements that belong to the client. At any given time, your firm will have multiple clients with multiple trust ledgers. It is extremely important that these trust funds are not commingled with one another and are not used to pay the law firm's expenses. It is mandatory that all trust accounts are reconciled monthly. In the event of an audit, this is the first thing the auditor will look for.

Additionally, these requirements don’t include the daily financial tasks of running a business, with invoicing, payroll, taxes, leasing, utilities, and much more that have to be handled. Your time is better used defending or supporting your clients, not worrying about your firm’s books and financial practices.

What type of financial help does your firm need?

Understanding your requirements is key to your success and compliance

Knowing your practice’s overhead costs plays a big role in what you’re billing clients. After all, your overhead must be covered by what you bring in. You don’t want to guess this figure. You’ll also need to know which are direct or indirect matter costs because indirect matter costs require a different accounting treatment than reimbursement for direct matter costs. The good news is that bookkeeping and accounting advice can help in both of these areas.

A remote bookkeeping service is ideal for lawyers who have a low volume of transactions. It is also perfect for lawyers who do their own bookkeeping but require professional help for only certain critical tasks such as bank reconciliation or GST/HST filing. Also, some lawyers prefer remote services because they do not have extra office space for a bookkeeper. Nor is there a need to make an appointment to have a bookkeeper come into your office. Plus, you only pay for the actual time working on your file, so it saves you from paying an employee’s salary. It is a quick and flexible way to get your books timely updated by a professional.

Outsourcing Bookkeeping Services for Law Firms

What Does it Do for You?

As an attorney, you are more efficient in making business decisions and concentrating on your clients when you have access to your P&L and financial statements such as accounts receivable (AR) and accounts payable (AP). Our certified QuickBooks Pro advisors will make sure you have this information in the palm of your hand when you need it and are kept up-to-date in real-time.

Bookkeeping is tedious work that takes you away from other critical responsibilities, but it provides financial information critical for your success. When you let us handle it, you can focus on what’s really important.
