Subject: Weekly Accounting Update - Best Agent Business - David Orso

Hi David,

Here's your weekly Best Agent Business Accounting update:

QuickBooks:
- Recorded commission income and expenses. please see attached pdf.

Things that need to be done:

- Reconcile bank accounts and credit cards so that Quickbooks will reflect its updated balances. ------ Please furnish us copies of your bank and credit card statements.
- The gross income per Quickbooks does not tally with the running total on the Century 21 CV. I already checked this with the previous pdf you have sent, but it seems that we've missed some information here. If possible, please send us Summary/Statement of Commission Income from C21.
Still needed from you:
  1. Your credit card statements.
  2. Monthly bank statements starting January 2011.
  3. Summary/Statement of Commission Income from C21.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Thanks,
Rebecca Mahinay
