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.

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 him self. 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. While in his second quarter of the year he was completing the Ledger, CRA, Canada Revenue Agency, called a full audit on his files; ledger books, GST and payroll. Once they reviewed the payroll section of his books, the agent decided the bookkeeping system was detailed, consistent and claims were easily trackable. She reported to him she was satisfied with the reporting on the payroll. She saw it unnecessary to spend any more time on the audit. This audit took a total of 40 minutes. he was both relieved and confident that for as long as he needed a record keeping system, this is the one. They still have Joan at the Morinville Business Centre input my Simplified Ledger into Simply Accounting to ensure a qualified person looks at it. But the only cost to them is about 15 minutes per worksheet. Not the hours that it use to cost. Being married with 2 young children means he has a very busy personal life. The worksheet helped him save money, save time and provided him, a welder, the ability to take some control of his business back. Thank you MBCTools.com.

When my husband’s drywall business got started, I was worried about the bookkeeping because I’ve never done it before but I met with Darlene at MBC and she introduced me to their Simplified Ledger-it’s an excellent tool for our needs. It helps us manage our business completely. It improved my abilities to control all my bookkeeping needs. It gave me confidence because it was easy to understand and to follow the form. I can now balance my books and match my receipts which I used to have difficulties. I now know how to balance my books and get all the deduction we’re allowed. This Ledger is the perfect answer for my husband’s business.

I have been in business for six years and I was MBC’s first client to use their Ledger. It was like balancing a cheque book, after some simple instruction. I found the work sheets so easy to follow. The Simplified Ledger was so easy, I did my whole year baste on those worksheets. I swear by these worksheets, they have cut down my bookkeeping costs. This system really works. I recommend that you try it, you won’t regret it; and there’s no confusion.

Darlene is so full of passion, she radiates it. I watched her in action a number of years ago when she did a presentation to our Edmonton chapter. The room full of bookkeepers and accountants walked away with new useful knowledge, and was very excited with the opportunities learned. Her evaluation from the attendees was excellent. I am so pleased that I have been able to continue a business relationship with Darlene and look forward to working with her on a number of projects in the future.
I am self employed as a bookkeeper for several small businesses. I use the MBC tool reconcile with codes worksheet to quickly add up expenses, reconcile bank statements, gather GST information and provide a complete breakdown of expenses that transfer easily to a software or tax program. What used to take me hours to add tape and breakdown for tax preparers, 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.
