Why is it important to outsource this job if you care about your business?
Why to outsource bookkeeping you may ask, when you are doing it for years by yourself? Without quality bookkeeping, you won’t know how much cash is coming in or going out. You will have no idea whether you are meeting your goals or even running a business successfully.
However, the reality is that not everyone enjoys bookkeeping. This is why outsourcing is such a great option for creatives and entrepreneurs. If you are thinking about outsourcing your bookkeeping, it comes with an array of benefits.
Here are five good reasons to outsource bookkeeping services:
There are few things more guarded in a business than internal financial records. This is information that an owner wants kept private and secure. Finding someone you can trust to do the job well, stay with the company long term and maintain confidentiality is not a simple task–especially when a local bookkeeper knows your personal financial health. Outsourcing to a virtual bookkeeping service with strong client references can give an owner peace of mind by removing the opportunity to have a member of their community in contact with their financial records.
Growing businesses often start out with smaller needs but rapidly grow to require a full suite of bookkeeping services. Hiring an outsourced bookkeeping service with controller oversight and a full service offering enables the service to scale to needs, without having to hire or train additional staff.
Training and Management.
Most business owners are not in the position to be able to train or manage bookkeeping staff–primarily because their bookkeeper likely knows more about it than they do. But the benefits of having a bookkeeper up-to-date on the latest Xero features or have comprehensive knowledge of state tax rules or reporting methods makes a big difference in the quality of bookkeeping. Here at Affordable Quality Bookkeeping we are trained and Xero certified to “train” your staff if you want to use that method every day.
Maximise Your Resources.
When business owners try to save money by doing their own bookkeeping or delegating it to another key employee, they are expending valuable time and energy that could be better used growing the business. When they outsource their bookkeeping services, they free themselves up to spend their time doing what they do best. CFOs, office managers and non-accounting personnel simply shouldn’t be spending their time on the books.
Tax and Audit Ready Financials.
Using outsourced professional bookkeeping services to prepare financial records makes accountants, the IRS and banking institutions happy. There is no concern over whether the books are accurate or questioning the integrity of the financial data. Whether a business owner needs to provide financial statements to the bank, satisfy investor reviews or share information with the IRS, outsourced bookkeeping services help make sure there is no doubt about the data.
