- Bank Reconciliation and the Benefits of Reconciling your Account.
Performing Bank Reconciliations helps you spot out Fraud and Reduce the risk of transactions, that can cause late fees and penalties. The Following are the Advantages of Bank Reconciliation: 1) It makes Accounts to be in Good Standing - It makes your Account to be in Good Standing. When you reconcile your Bank Account, it helps you to be aware about the Amount that you can spend in your Account, so that you are less likely to overdraw your Bank Account. You need to keep in mind, that overdrawing will negatively affect your Credit Score and can prompt the Bank to charge you fees. 2) It Prevents Theft - Recording Bank Fees is a Standard Practice as you process your Reconciliation and it may reveal a transaction, that you have overlooked to record. By examining further, the available original documents, these discrepancies will be revealed. Most Importantly, it will reveal the Bank transactions, that were initiated by unauthorized individuals, who try to steal money from your Bank Account. 3) It Helps you detect Accounting Errors - There can be some cases, where your Bank commits an error in your favor, and this will make you liable to return that money, even if you've already spent it. By Reconciliation, you will be able to detect accounting errors that commonly occurs in Business, such as Double Payments, Addition and Subtraction Errors, Missed Payments and Lost Checks. 4) It keeps Mistakes in Check - Banks are usually responsible for implementing procedures to avoid making mistakes in your Bank Account; unfortunately, mistakes do happen sometimes, with the most common being a Simple entry error. Nevertheless, Banks will be able to correct these mistakes when you point them out, after you complete your Bank Reconciliation. 5) Need to Record Interest Earned - Businesses may think, that they are Small, so recording their Interest maybe minor. It is important to keep precise track of smaller details, since these can add up over time. Also, It may not seem important now, but as you earn more money and your Principal grows, your interest may become significant enough that it affects your bottom line. 6) It reduces Missing Transactions - We have seen several instances, where Banks may refuse to deposit your Check for reasons like you have drawn on a Foreign Bank Account. This may require them to reverse the original entry on a Deposit. Bank Reconciliation is carried to introduce transparency and efficiency into a Business's Accounting System. 7) It helps to identify Duplicate Charges - Reconciling your Bank Account helps to identify duplicate charges, that may be erroneously charged in your Bank Account; It also helps you to recognize unauthorized charges and incorrect posting amounts, thereby reaching out to the Merchant Companies and informing them to refund these charges. 8) It detects and prevents Embezzlement of Funds from your Company - Reconciling your Account helps to detect Fraud and embezzlement of funds from your Company. You are able to track every transaction and determine, where they are coming from, where the funds are being allocated to and if they were wrongly allotted. 9) It Helps Business Owners make Sound Financial Decisions - Reconciling your Bank Account helps Business Owners to make sound financial decisions about the growth of their Company and helps to identify particular product lines, that maybe non-profitable. 10) It helps you track your Accounts Receivables - Cash is King. Reconciling your Account keeps you on top of your Account Receivables; It helps you know the true Amount, that your Debtors are owing you. Reconciling your Account allows you to track your Invoices and reach out to your Debtors to make Payments promptly. It helps to ensure that you always have Cash available in your Bank Account. 11) Reconciling your Account helps you produce Accurate Financial Reports, needed for your Loan Application - Due to the Pandemic, a lot of Businesses have to rely on SBA Loans and Government Stimulus to help their Businesses stay afloat.

- Having Problems with Employees not Returning back to Work?
We congratulate you for making it through the Pandemic and getting back with your Business Operations. We are excited about the endless Possibilities and Opportunities, that the future holds for us. We look forward to working with you in making this Possible. Governor Larry Hogan recently announced the next round of safe and phased re openings in conjunction with stage two of the " Maryland Strong: Road map to Recovery" Plan. We are also aware that, the Federal Government will forgive part of your PPP Loan, as long as 60% of the Amount goes towards Paying your Employees. In light of these re openings and Loan Forgiveness Rules, the Maryland Department of Labor has notified all unemployment claimants who are on temporary layoff or are furloughed due to COVID-19 that they are required to return to work if called back by their employer. If a claimant refuses an offer of work, it may result in the delay or denial of the claimant’s benefits. Labor’s Division of Unemployment Insurance requires employers to report the following information within 15 days of when they offer work and it is refused by the employee: Employee’s full name and social security number The date the employee was offered work The date the employee refused the offer of work. If your Employees refuse to get back to work, there is a New Employer Tool for Updating Return to Work Dates and Reporting Job Refusals Online, which is included below. Employers who have a valid Maryland account number and FEIN may easily report job refusals and update return to work dates by utilizing the Division’s new online application available at https://secure-2.dllr.state.md.us/net207/welcome.aspx. The application will accept an updated return to work date up to 30 days in the past and up to 12 months in the future. Employers without a valid Maryland account number, such as federal employers and those who are out-of-state, may report job refusals and update return to work dates by emailing email@example.com. However, please note there are circumstances where a claimant has “good cause” to refuse an offer of work, including: Being sick or still isolated as the result of COVID-19 An unreasonable risk of exposure at place of employment Caring for a family member who is sick or isolated as the result of COVID-19 Caring for a child who is unable to attend school or a childcare facility The work is not “suitable.” In the context of an individual returning to work with the same employer in which the individual had been laid off or furloughed as a direct result of COVID-19, suitable employment means employment that the claimant is qualified for based on their customary occupation, experience, education level, and/or training. Upon receipt of this information from the employer, Labor will schedule a telephone fact-finding appointment with the claimant where the claimant will be able to address the failure to return-to-work/job refusal issue. The employer will also be contacted to provide the circumstances of the job offer. After the Division has collected the available facts surrounding the job offer, a determination will be made. We are aware, that this may be a tedious and additional workload for you; As your Trusted Bookkeeping, Accounting and Payroll Provider, we are excited to let you know, that we can assist you with this Task, as well as any other Services, you may require to allow you settle down and work on your Business.

- Congratulations, You got your PPP Loan, What Next?
Congratulations, you filed all the Paperwork for your PPP Loan and you have received your Grant and Loan. Now is the time to start planning on how you are going to ensure you use the Funds correctly. During this Pandemic, the SBA has made efforts to make funding accessible to Small Businesses and it is important to use the Funds appropriately. The PPP Loan is designed to provide a direct incentive for Small Businesses to keep their workers on Payroll. SBA will forgive Loans, if all employees are kept on the Payroll for eight weeks, starting from when the Loan is received and the Money is used for Payroll, Rent, Mortgage Interest Payments or Utilities. It is important to note that not more than 25% of the forgiven Amount maybe for Non-Payroll Costs. Now, that you have your Loan and have identified the time period, it's time to calculate the monthly payroll cost, to ensure your Loan Forgiveness. The Items below are the Payroll Costs to include, as well as the Non- Payroll Costs. Payroll Costs: 1) Salary, Wages, Commissions, Tips and Bonuses. 2) Owner's Draw Payments for Sole Proprietors. 3) Severance Pay 4) Paid Leave Payments (No FFCRA Paid Leave) 5) Employee Payments for State and Local Taxes. 6) Employee Payments for Federal Income Tax and FICA. 7) Employee Contributions to Retirement and Group Health Plans ( Health Insurance & Dental Coverage). 8) Payments of Interest on Mortgage Obligations. Non-Payroll Costs: 1) Contractor Pay 2) Payroll Reimbursement. 3) Owner's Draw Payments (Except for Sole Proprietors). 4) Workers' Compensation Fees. 5) Fringe Benefits. (Commuter Benefits, HSAs). 6) Ancillary Benefits (Short-Term Disability, Group Life Insurance). Important Notes: The SBA recently clarified that the 8 Weeks Period begins on the date, the borrower receives the disbursement of the Loan, and regardless of whether your Business has resumed operations. No More than 25% of the Forgivable Amount of a PPP Loan can be attributable to Non-Payroll Costs. Actions to take immediately: Open up a Separate Bank Account and Deposit the Loan Amount in the Bank Account. It would make it easier to track the use of the funds precisely. Order Check Books for this Account and Ensure the Check Payment is made from this Account. Hire Back Employees and Restore Headcount and Wages to Prior Levels. Maintain a Paper Folder or Electronic Folder for all PPP Expenses and Cancelled Checks. Remember you have 8 Weeks of Funding to track these costs. Not 2 Months but 8 Weeks, from when you got the Funding. Ensure to pay your Rent on time. Get your Lease Agreement and Have it ready to produce, when it is requested. Ensure to pay your Utility Bills on time and save all Bill Payments. Make Sure to Pay ALL Interest on your Loans when Due. Although, Principal Payments are required, you are required to keep track of the Interest Payments, either with Statements or an Amortization Schedule. Keep a Record of the Exact Amount of Health Benefits and Pension Contributions due for the 8 Weeks. Ensure to find them, before the end of the 8 Weeks. Get a Bookkeeper, CPA and Accountant NOW. The PPP and EIDL Loan Program is one of the Greatest Investments, you have ever made as a Small Business. The Secret is knowing how to play by the Rules and is essential in using it to your Best Advantage.
