Do your books need a little professional help? Or are you an accounting wiz looking to sign a new client? A Bookkeeping Contract is a great way to clarify all the terms of service. Having a contract in place can help you protect your legal rights and responsibilities so you can focus on getting those book in order.
A Bookkeeping Contract, also called an Accounting Contract, explains the services that an accountant or accounting firm will perform on behalf of a business or individual. It also outlines the responsibilities and liabilities of each party. For example, an accountant may be responsible for just an individual's taxes, or for maintaining all the corporate financials, bookkeeping and taxes of a business. Whether you're the client or the accountant, a solid contract should include: the name and address of the accountant or accounting firm; the name and address of the client; information about the accountant's license; when the agreement starts and for how long; what the accountant will be doing for the client; anything that the bookkeeper won't be doing; the price of services and how payment will be made, how the agreement can be ended; and which state's laws will govern the agreement.
