How Bench works
Step 1: Get set up and connect your accounts
Once you securely connect your financial accounts, we’ll introduce you to a dedicated bookkeeper. They’ll get to know your business, and show you how Bench works.
Step 2: Get financial insights in real-time
Get a snapshot view of all your money-in and money-out, whenever you need it, even before your books are closed.
Step 3: We do your bookkeeping
Each month, your bookkeeper organizes your business transactions and prepares financial statements. If they need anything from you, they’ll get in touch.
Step 4: We deliver tax-ready financials
Feel supported in your small business taxes. At tax time, we send a package with everything you need to file. Or, let us do it for you with our Premium plan.
Need historical bookkeeping?
We pair you with expert bookkeepers to get your books up-to-date. Need more than two years of historical bookkeeping? Our Bench Retro team can work with you to get caught up for dissolving your business, filing for bankruptcy, or creating an IRS payment plan.
