As a small business owner, we know it can be difficult, if not downright terrifying, to offload any part of your work, especially the finances to someone else. But if you’re keeping your own books without any knowledge or expertise, you may actually be hurting your bottom line. Turning to a professional bookkeeper provides many benefits, some you may not have even considered before. Take a look at our quick rundown to find out why hiring a professional bookkeeper may be one of the best business moves you can make.

1| Organized Books Allow for Better Decision Making

Think about the last time you, as a business owner, had to make a financial decision. Did you refer to your books for an accurate estimation on if you could afford it? Or did you make your best guess and hope it would all work out in the end? Too often business owners make financial decisions blindly. Without updated books, you don’t have a spending history or a budget and therefore cannot make sound decisions. 

By working with a professional bookkeeper, you’ll be better able to stay on top of where you are financially, allowing you to make good business decisions based on current and accurate numbers.

2| Free Up Time to Focus on Running the Business

If you’re still on the fence about outsourcing your financial reports, we’ve got a homework assignment for you: over the next month, keep track of exactly how much time it takes to complete all the bookkeeping tasks for your business such as paying invoices, tracking expenses, and processing payroll. Are you actually saving money by doing this yourself, or could your time be better spent elsewhere, like networking, research and development, and day-to-day operations?

Let us handle the numbers and free yourself up to focus on what you’re best at – running your business. By passing your books off to us, you’ll have more time to dive into growing and maintaining your operations.

3| Ensure Your Bills Are Paid On Time

Running a business is a 24/7 job which leaves you with little time to worry about the numbers. By using a bookkeeping service, you’ll rest easy knowing that both your employees and your bills will be paid on time. And don’t forget about taxes. The last thing you want is to make a late or incorrect tax payment and get slapped with an audit down the road. We can handle both the bookkeeping and taxes for you because let’s face it, you’ve got enough to worry about.

4| Personalized Services to Meet Your Needs

Ok, now you’re ready to work with us on getting your books in order so that you can make better financial decisions and free up some time. But what exactly will that look like? Do you want to be completely hands off and let us grind the numbers, or do you just need some assistance in a few key areas? Whatever you need, we’re here to help.

We work WITH you to develop a system that works best for you and your unique business.
