7 Reasons to Hire a Bookkeeper

The time you spend operating your business from day to day should be focused on what brings income and makes your business profitable. Outsourcing the other tasks is part of what keeps a business running smoothly and efficiently  If you are wondering whether or not hiring a bookkeeper is right for you, here are 7 reasons why you should consider hiring one.

A bookkeeper does the day-to-day hands-on tasks, including making sure new employees file all the right paperwork for the company’s payroll, submitting invoices in a timely manner and following up on them, and paying the bills.

A bookkeeper tracks company expenses and can assure that every cost has been entered  and correctly recorded into software, such as QuickBooks, so that the business is ready for tax time or reports to creditors or investors.

A bookkeeper sorts out all of your receipts from miscellaneous expenses, including taxi rides, meals, conferences and other expenses he has placed on his company’s debit card.

A bookkeeper shows you how expenditures stack up against a budget.

A good bookkeeper will not bill clients incorrectly or miss important payments.

A bookkeeper helps you identify financial trends in your business and can help you strategically plan where your money is going, how you can save, and where you may be able to exercise tax benefits.

A bookkeeper hired outside of your company (or contracted) can work part time from home, their office or even your office if you need them to. This way, there is no need to hire a full-time in-office bookkeeper.
