Outside Bookkeeping Service
There are a lot of reasons to use an outside bookkeeping service and I’ll tell you one reason thru personal experience. My husband is an artist and, when I first met him, totally clueless about most things financial. He had a design studio and his office manager/assistant did the bookkeeping. I worked for the accounting firm that did his tax returns was sent out to audit his company. Like most small business owners he didn’t have the time or interest to keep up with his bookkeeping. Let me tell you that it was a mess and the office manager had been holding checks for months trying to find a way to deposit them for herself. He was fortunate to get the checks back and deposit them. Needless to say, he let the office manager go. Had he been using a bookkeeping service this would have never happened.
My husband was fortunate but there are many business owners with the same problem, they just don’t have the time to make sure their in-house bookkeeper is doing the job correctly. Many times, hoping to save money, have someone with no real training or experience doing the bookkeeping. This is not a formula for financial success. At YourBookkeepingDept.com we’re professional bookkeepers and can maintain your business books while you manage your business. We will reduce your involvement with bookkeeping to just a few minutes a day and you’ll have more time to focus on tasks that directly increase your profits.
Of course you could marry a bookkeeper, but that’s another story.
