Accounting for Lawyers and Attorneys
Delivering a "great accounting" verdict
Whether a large or small law firm, the ability to stay compliant is essential to both success and survival as a law firm. Lawyers are known to be extremely susceptible to compliance issues having to deal with their accounting, mainly because they are lawyers, not accountants.
Legal practices should preferably employ the use of legal accounting software as opposed to general purpose accounting software. Firms that utilize general purpose accounting software will not be able to easily remain compliant while using an out of the box software solution made for general accounting. The software must also have customized reports that meet both management needs.
Law firms use retainers to secure cash flow from clients. Even though funds may be in the firm's possession, they do not belong to the firm until they have been earned. Firms also handle personal injury settlements that belong to the client. At any given time a 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 on a monthly basis, and in the event of an audit this is the first thing the auditor will look for.
For this reason all law firm

Keep the firm's expenses in mind. With all that goes into client billing, it's easy for a law firm to forget about it's own expenses. Law firms incur costs associated with the office lease, payroll, electricity, phone, internet, and much more.
By having a good understanding of the overhead costs associated with running a firm, better insight can be gained into how much clients should be billed. It is also extremely important to differentiate between direct and indirect matter costs. This is because reimbursement for indirect matter costs requires a different accounting treatment than reimbursement for direct matter costs.
Remote bookkeeping service is ideal for lawyers who have 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. Some lawyers prefer remote service because they do not have extra office space for a bookkeeper.
Because the bookkeeper is not physically present in your office, remote service saves you valuable office space. There is no need to make appointment to have any bookkeeper to come in your office. It is a quick and flexible way to get your book timely updated by a professional.
Remote accounting services also save you money. You only pay for the actual time working on your file.
