Frequently Asked Questions

How does the free month of bookkeeping work?

Shortly after you sign up, we’ll give you a call to learn more about your business and bookkeeping needs. On this call, we’ll connect your accounts to Bench, and gather any extra documentation we need to complete your books.

Once we have everything set up, we’ll complete a month of your bookkeeping in 1-2 days. Our bookkeepers reconcile your accounts, categorize your transactions, and make necessary adjustments to your books. The end result is a set of accurate financial statements—an income statement and a balance sheet.

How do you receive my documents? Do I need to give you my receipts?

We use Plaid, which lets you securely connect your financial accounts to Bench in seconds. This feature saves you the time and effort of manually uploading documents.


We connect with Stripe, Square, Shopify, PayPal, and Amazon. By connecting your payment processor, all of your transactions are automatically synced to Bench’s platform.


We also support clients that use other merchant processors. We’ll work with you to connect accounts and pull the data we need to reconcile your books.


There are some times that we’ll request documents from you (like account statements or receipts), just to ensure the information we have is correct. If you need to share files with your bookkeeping team, it’s as simple as uploading a file. We’ll take care of the rest.

What’s the difference between Bench and QuickBooks (or other bookkeeping software)?

QuickBooks and other bookkeeping software give you a tool to do your own bookkeeping. Bench does your bookkeeping for you.
