Our Testimonials

See what are clients are saying!

Ariel Robinson Founder & CEO

My main problem always has been to know my accurate profits & this is precisely what ledger labs helped me with. They went through my entire supply chain costs, my monthly operational expenses, and COGS and got me the correct costing of my goods and the cost of running the business. Now I know how much I need to sell & at what price I should sell it to be profitable.

Patrick Nichols CFO

Since working with Ledger labs, our bookkeeping and Controller processes have been streamlined. The routine accounting tasks are managed on a predictable schedule, and checklists are used to ensure that all required documents are processed within the proper deadlines. We have improved the accuracy and timeliness of our financial statements and other crucial accounting functions at a lower cost than what was being paid to employees.

Amanda Fludd CEO

We have a unique business, and almost all the accounting firms we have engaged so far have been unable to get a hold of our business. But Ledger Labs really took the bull by its horn. They understood our business better than us & created a very customized process & systems to streamline our accounting department. We now have detailed step-by-step process documentation, checklists & schedule of reports.

Donna Thompson Founder & CEO of XpeedStudio

We have been aggressively growing. They always have out-of-the-box solutions & don't rely on conventional approach or give us standard solutions. They always keep our business & process in centre before advising a solution.

1. Select the type of corporation suitable for you.
2.Create and set up the entity as per your need and choice.
3. Develop a pitch to motivate your buyers.
4. Help set up the entire process of financing and banking.

Here are some key financial records you should maintain:

1. Keep records of all documents related to purchasing properties, including sales contracts, deeds, and closing statements.
2. Keep track of rental income received from tenants, including dates and amounts of payments, and any late fees or penalties.
3. Keep copies of mortgage agreements, loan documents, and records of mortgage payments.
4. Keep copies of bank statements for all accounts related to your real estate business, including checking, savings, and credit card accounts.
5. Prepare and keep financial statements for your real estate business, including balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements.
6. Keep copies of tax returns, supporting documents, and records of tax payments for your real estate business.

As a precaution, it is always advisable for organizations to maintain financial records spanning at least past seven years. We suggest securely storing these statements and documents in an easily accessible location. If you encounter difficulties in data storage and retrieval, our real estate accounting experts are available to help.

Your dedicated accounting and bookkeeping services team will handle the closure of books and accounts on varying dates, depending on factors such as business type, operational scale, and other intricacies. Typically, our team concludes the accounts for the previous month within the initial week of the next month.

The choice of software depends on factors such as the size and complexity of your portfolio, specific accounting needs, and budget considerations. Having said that, we use QuickBooks, Yardi, Buildium, AppFolio Property Manager, Sage Intacct and similar software for core accounting and bookkeeping. For project management, we use Clickup and Asana. Further, for staying in touch with you we use all kinds of communication platforms including WhatsApp, MS Teams, Skype, etc.

Rest assured, we will have no problems working with you and for you remotely. Your dedicated team of bookkeepers and accountants will be available during business hours. All you need to do is to call, text, or email them for queries or clarifications. Further, we will have regular online meetings for updates and other communication.

We have a brief and efficient onboarding procedure for new clients. Although, we can take care of all your requirements right away, it’s better if we take time in researching your business and its environment. This helps us understand your business completely. So, the entire process of understanding your business, optimization or setting up the accounting process, policy drafting, execution, and reporting may take somewhere between 30 to 60 days.

We take your data security as seriously as you do. At Ledger Labs, we take all the preventive and safeguarding measures to ensure that your data stays safe. We do this by using multiple encryption levels that can be accessed by just us and the client. Additionally, the two-factor authentication ensures that your data is accessible to only those allowed. Further, we carry out proper background checks before hiring employees for our teams. Lastly, we also sign a non-disclosure agreement with you preventing any information leak from either side.

We have all sorts of real estate businesses on our client list. Ranging from newbie two member firms to 100+ employees’ established businesses, we cater to everyone with the same amount of zeal and dedication. We onboard a selective number of clients each season so that we can custom-build accounting solutions for them. This ensures that you get exactly the services you need while keeping in check your accounting costs. In fact, this is what makes us different from other bigger and more commercial accounting firms.

That depends on the size and complexity of your accounting transactions. However, in our experience, most clients do not prefer to carry on with their current accountants once they start working with us. This is because we take care of their accounting needs end to end. Our capable team of experienced bookkeepers, reviewers, accountants and managers make sure that your financial reports are in order, you get all the tax benefits and deductions and stay compliant at all times.
