I am confused in what circumstances we have to put a dash for the word "set up". If I were to list down something by way of bullet points and I have to use the word "set up", is it required  a dash (-). If not, in what circumstances a dash is required for the word set up.

For example:

Below are our scope of services:

- Review your sales contract legal document

- Set up bank feeds for your bank account

- Prepare/preparation of audited XYZ reports.

Also, based on the list above, to be consistent with the format, is it grammatically wrong to use "preparation" instead of "prepare"

Thanks!!!

As a noun, you can use either 'setup' as a closed compound or 'set-up' as a hyphenated compound. To be consistent with format, you need to use the noun 'preparation'. If I were you, I'd begin this list with the '-ing' form, i.e. reviewing, setting up and preparing.
