What’s the value of a bookkeeper?

I personally know a handful of independent contractors who do work for various clients throughout the year, then visit their CPA (Certified Public Accountant) come tax season. They give their CPA a stack of receipts along with a personally calculated income amount. Depending on the type and size of your business this may work for you – especially if you don’t have any plans to grow.  But, if you’re a small business owner with employees, contractors, or maybe just yourself and you aren’t able to keep up with your record keeping then a Bookkeeper can be a valuable asset.

What is your time worth?

Chances are you don’t know how to properly set-up your books along with keeping them accurate. If the books are not managed correctly your reports will not provide you with truthful information about your business.

Here are a few quick reasons you should consider hiring someone to “keep your books” as we call it:

  1. Staying organized
  2. Ability to provide financial statements
  3. Helps you plan for large cash expenses
  4. Helps you avoid interest & penalties
  5. Makes filing taxes easier & less expensive

Remember, the balance in your bank account does NOT reflect the status of your business. A bookkeeper can quickly and properly help you get organized and stay organized while you focus on what you know best – your business!
