Rescue My Bookkeeping

 I am self-employed as a bookkeeper for several small businesses. I use the MBC tool, Simplified Ledger, to quickly add up expenses, reconcile bank statements, gather information and provide a complete breakdown of expenses that transfer easily to a software or program. What used to take me hours to add tape and breakdown for clients, now has simplified and sped up the process. Since it is very easy to use, I can now train my clients on it to do at their own location and have more control over their own companies bookkeeping. The office in home calculates spreadsheet is so accurate that it enables all of my clients to see how much they are actually spending in their own home on their company.

 C2online tools have simplified my daily routine tasks of managing a bookkeeping office & bookkeeping clients. C2online tools have increased productivity for my bookkeepers and added value to their clients. 

- A. Sullivan

 I am a Certified Professional Compiler and have been professionally for 13 years. We have calculated how long it takes to straighten, sort by date, source on payment and categorize 100 expense receipts. The time was 1.25 minutes each time we had to touch the receipts resulting in a bookkeeping charge of 6.25 hours for 100 receipts, costing the client 6.25 x $70 per hour =$437.50. We have found as a bookkeeper we should be trying to save the business money not costing more. When I used Simplified Ledger developed by C2 the same 100 receipts now cost the client $25.00, if he/she post the receipts. If he/she hires me to post the receipts it would be 2.08 hours x $70 =$145.60 for a savings of $291.90. While working with small businesses and large, both incorporated and proprietorships, we have come to realize a third of their budget is used in wages. This does not include accounting fees with the high raising accountants and bookkeepers' fees, it is a relief to know there is an alternative I can provide to my clients not only in bookkeeping but also administration solutions in the running of their business with C2.

- Gordon Skillen

 I love the Simplified Ledger. It saves so much time when entering things like cash receipts, expense reported for all types of business or using it as financials for proprietorships because it allows to input both income and expenses and the formulas are designed to not only total them for you but to separate into each category, saving time and money as input into a accounting program is not necessary. 

- Danielle

 The in Home Office Calcuator spreadsheet which is not only great in figuring out what is an allowable expense for home office use but incredibly beneficial for figuring out home use in home based business such as a day home. The simple to follow walk around to get the square footage of your home and what amount you use for business on the first tab and then you just input your expenses in the second tab and it’s formulas tell you what you can claim as an “in Home Office” expense. I found this spreadsheet very helpful and time saving in figuring out total expenses as well as being very accurate.

ESE-LSS Life Safety Systems Technologies

 When working with a business for over 10 years they had always relied on a professional to take care of their books. Thinking they should try to do it within office, they hired help for one year. After 3 nightmare bookkeepers, an enormous amount of money and a bookkeeping mess; he had to take on the bookkeeping himself. With the help of Simplified Ledger , he was able to do the records including bank reconciliations while he was out in the field. The ability to use a computer keyboard and matching his receipts to the statements was the level of skill he needed. The time to record the information was less than it took to record information into a cheque book.

She is clear and concise, and has the ability to put people at ease while at the same time sparking their imaginations with the ideas on which C2 is based. I would recommend her to any business person who is interested in new ways to save time and money by making their business more efficient. 

- Avanzar Janitorial

 In my husband’s business of 15 years, we’ve been paying for a bookkeeper because I have a full time job. After talking to Darlene, she suggested I get our 16 year old daughter involved in the bookkeeping end of things. Darlene taught her how to match the receipts to the source of payment. She learned how to use the Simplified Ledger which had a prepare manual attached. I saw how easy it was to do, so I have now taken over the job.
