Quick Guide to Bookkeeping / Accounting Services
Why Your Business Needs a Bookkeeper
Bookkeepers can be an invaluable asset to your business. In addition to saving you time, bookkeepers can save you money by streamlining your financial reporting for tax season. Uncle Sam wants as much of your hard-earned money as possible, but a good bookkeeper can help you keep more of what you earn.
Besides saving you money, perhaps more of a reason to hire a bookkeeper for your business is to save you time. If you are not familiar with how to properly set up financial software or how to enter transactions properly, then a bookkeeper can save you many hours of frustration by doing these tasks for you. If you're the type of person who wants complete control of these financial functions, then it may make sense to hire a bookkeeper to teach you how to set up these systems yourself and how to enter invoices and pay bills properly.
What a Bookkeeper Can Do For Your Business
Bookkeepers can perform a myriad of finance related tasks for your business. Here is a partial list of tasks that a bookkeeper can do:
- Help you set up accounting software (Quickbooks or something similar)
- Show you how to enter bills and invoices properly
- Reconcile your monthly bank statements to ensure proper reporting
- Produce monthly reports for your business finances
- Pay vendors and create invoices (so you don't have to worry about it)
- Prepare reports for tax season
- Plus many more tasks
Tips for Choosing a Good Bookkeeper
The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a bookkeeper is to do your best in determining if this person is trustworthy. Few things are as personal and confidential as your business finances; finding a bookkeeper you can trust is imperative.
It is necessary to talk with several potential bookkeepers so that you establish a good base of comparison. Read more about bookkeeping and accounting services on our buyer guide.
