Our Law Firm Bookkeeping Services


We provide weekly bookkeeping services to law firms to meet BC Law society rules under section 3-72(1)(a), i.e., A lawyer must record each trust or general transaction promptly, and in any event not more than (a) 7 days after a trust transaction, or (b) 30 days after a general transaction. We support both PC Law and QuickBooks to maintain accounting books.

Trust & Client Ledgers Reconciliation

We will maintain all trust and clients’ ledgers to meet BC Law Society rules as described in sections 3-73(1) & (2). We will prepare a detailed ledger of trust liabilities and client ledgers and will reconcile them. This is one of the most reportable exceptions noted by BC Law Society in the trust audit every year.

Accounts Payable (AP)

By maintaining an AP ledger, you will be in control of your disbursements and expenses. An AP report will help you to recover your disbursement, such as BC Online, LTSA, and Dye & Durham expenses, etc.
