Scope and content

The series contains records related to the financial administration of Hoffmeister Electric. Records are arranged in seven sub-series on the basis of their documentary forms: Tax records; Monthly time books for employees; Bank books of Reinhart Hoffmeister; Administrative bills; Insurance policies, leases, and deeds; Duplicate client invoices; and Ledgers.

The Tax records sub-series features federal, provincial, and municipal tax records from Reinhart Hoffmeister and Hoffmeister Electric. Files are arranged chronologically. Documentary forms include various corporate statements of assets and liabilities; federal income tax returns for employers; and Reinhart Hoffmeister’s personal property and income tax statements.

The Monthly time books for employees sub-series includes four notebooks used to record the total number of hours worked and wages earned each month by Hoffmeister Electric employees. Notebooks are arranged chronologically by start date.

The Bank books of Reinhart Hoffmeister series features 12 bank books for accounts at the Bank of Nova Scotia and Dominion bank. Bank books record account deposits and total balances. Volumes are arranged chronologically by start date.

The Administrative bills sub-series comprises a sample of bills paid by Hoffmeister Electric for machinery and maintenance of various premises in Vancouver. Bills were paid for clean towels, electricity, water, telephones, delivery services, machine parts, and more. Files are arranged chronologically.

The Insurance policies, leases, and deeds sub-series includes the aforementioned records, which were generated or procured by Reinhart Hoffmeister, his brothers, or Hoffmeister Electric for properties in Vancouver, British Columbia. Records in this sub-series are maintained in their original physical order.

The Duplicate client invoices sub-series contains a sample of original timesheets that Hoffmeister Electric charged to its clients, as well as 12 ledgers featuring duplicate copies of client invoices. Timesheets and invoices record client names, work completed on particular dates, and total amounts owed. Files are arranged chronologically.

The Ledgers sub-series aggregates ledgers used for a number of accounting activities by Hoffmeister Electric employees. General ledgers record client names, contact information, orders, and payment history over long periods of time. Other ledgers chart till passes, total machinery sales in set time periods, and petty cash flow. Ledgers have been grouped according to the specific activities they were associated with (e.g. till pass books are maintained separately from volumes recording total sales). Ledgers are then arranged chronologically within each sub-grouping.
