CosmoLex Helps Accountants & Bookkeepers
Attorneys love to practice law, not accounting or bookkeeping, and they need trusted advisors to help ensure that their financials are 100% compliant. But many accountants & bookkeepers shy away from taking on law firm clients because of the unique requirements governing areas like case cost, client funds, and IOLTA rules. On top of that, most law firms have separate systems for billing & business accounting, and a host of manual trust ledgers — a messy situation that creates lots of extra work for anyone trying to manage their books, especially on a fixed fee basis.
CosmoLex can help you grow your own practice by providing an easy way to work with law firms. That’s because CosmoLex customers are different. They record all their billing & payments transactions in the CosmoLex cloud app. Then all of these transactions flow into a full set of accounting tools & reports that are built-in to CosmoLex itself, including:
- Legal Accounting Compliance Standards (no workarounds needed)
- Bookkeeping Ledgers, Journals, & Reconciliations
- IOLTA Ledgers & Trust Account Reconciliations
- Turn-key Billing, Retainer Management, and Receivables
- Built-in Collection Tools
- Journal Entries for Payroll & Adjustments
- Year-End Tax-Accounting Reports & much more
