Lookout Outlook

It’s fa-la-la finally December!

This time of year can be incredibly stressful… there’s everything to contend with, from year-end closing (keep reading for a handy checklist) to navigating the holiday season… so I’m going to make sure this email gets straight to the point!

If you don’t read anything else in this newsletter, read this! Two big bank holidays that fall on a Monday are quickly approaching: December 25th, 2023, and January 1, 2024. Make sure that you have a plan in place to adjust for payroll or any other important payments due on these dates.

Want to work together in 2024?

As we approach a new year, client files will be reviewed for scope and volume, with new proposals being sent, as needed, if an increase or decrease in services is needed.

If you do not currently work with Lookout Bookkeeping, and you are interested in services, the first step is to fill out the intake form – bit.ly/LKTLead. When the intake form is received and reviewed, Melissa will be in touch to connect with you, and send a proposal for services.

It’s Almost 1099 Season!

  • Make a list of all contractors you paid for services this year, and verify the amount paid to each contractor.
  • Verify that you have a W-9 on file for each contractor you paid over $600, or request one now!
  • If you paid via credit card, the payment processor will issue a 1099-K instead, if reporting requirements are met. (Keep an eye on my social media this month for more info on these changes!)
