Welcome, CosmoLex clients!

CosmoLex-128

 

We are pleased to offer bookkeeping and payroll services for attorneys using CosmoLex law practice management software.

As part of our regular bookkeeping packages, we take care of all the non-billing accounting for your firm each month:

  • Reconcile all bank accounts and credit cards
  • Close the books for the previous month
  • Review financial statements for irregularities
  • Deliver a final report to you with financial statements (PDF) for the previous month and a written summary of any areas of concern, especially with regards to your trust account transactions
  • Make minor data/entry adjustments to existing transactions as needed

All bookkeeping packages are charged at a fixed rate per month, and CosmoLex will provide the extra accountant user access to you at no additional charge.

We also offer one-time or on-demand bookkeeping services at an hourly rate, for situations where you only need help getting caught up or cleaning up prior periods.

 
 

We also offer payroll processing as an add-on service for our bookkeeping clients. Our payroll service includes:

  • Online access to the payroll software, so you can run your own payroll when you need to
  • Tax payments initiated when due, from your own bank account
  • Run payroll as often as you need to at the same flat rate
  • Filing of all year-end payroll tax forms, including w-2’s
  • Free direct deposit
  • Entry of payroll transactions into your CosmoLex account
  • Electronic payment and filing of all federal and most state taxes
  • 1099 preparation and filing for a small additional fee

We are here to help. Please contact us by email or by phone.

Backyard Bookkeeper has been there for me since I was by myself in my apartment trying to get my business off the ground. Mandi helped me make sure my books where clean and organized so I could focus on the other aspects of my business. Everything was nice and automated and Mandi acted like she was a member of my team. It was great. Thank you for everything!

After opening my own firm, I quickly realized handling my own bookkeeping was a losing proposition - not only did not I not have sufficient knowledge, I was losing valuable time that could be better spent doing what I do best. I contacted Backyard Bookkeeper. They came to the rescue, assuming my Quickbooks mess, and quickly organized and streamlined both my internal bookkeeping, but also took over my billing. Backyard Bookkeeper is immediately responsive, and 100% competent. I am very happy with their service and highly recommend any small business give them a try - you won't regret it.

Mark, business owner

Susan has been great to work with. She has been very accommodating and willing to do anything to help me. When I first called Backyard Bookkeeper and talked to Susan, I felt ashamed that my books were a mess for one full year. By the end of the conversation, I felt so much better and was reassured that it was not a problem. Ultimately, Susan cleaned up my mess in a short period of time. I feel very comfortable working with Susan. Because she is prompt and has earned my trust, I also have her manage my books for two additional businesses I own.

I am thrilled with the service I have had from Julie with Backyard Bookkeeper! A recent computer crash left me with a feeling of dread. After trying to install/restore backup on my own - I encountered errors and was at a standstill. Julie was prompt to respond to my problem, arranged for a time when we could work on a resolution, and within minutes she had my data restored and had me back up and running my small business! Julie is very knowledgeable about QuickBooks and is a resource I am thrilled to have by my side when I need her! I highly recommend Backyard Bookkeeper to other business owners.

I contacted Julie DeLong on two separate occasions for help with some bookkeeping issues that I was having. Julie responded immediately and helped me solve my problems. She understood every issue that I was having and gave me clear, concise resolutions for each. Having her as a resource has made my job so much easier! I highly recommend her and am so grateful to have her to turn to when I have a problem!

I tried managing my QuickBooks on my own for a couple of years, and constantly ran into situations that I didn't know how to solve. Now, I have my own personal QuickBooks Superhero: Julie DeLong! She is capable of leaping over a huge mathematical tangle in a single bound, and can quickly compute complex figures in her super-genius brain, while standing on one foot and whistling "Dixie". It's all in a days work for Julie to design powerful solutions to the mightiest messes while peeling a banana and standing on her head. I particularly love that she manages my sales tax, and my complex vendor statements. Glad she found my backyard!
