3 Things to Expect When Working with a Bookkeeper
Working with a Bookkeeper can do so much for your business. Not only can it save you time from having to manage the books yourself, but it can open up a whole new world to your operations. These days, Bookkeepers are at the forefront of an accounting technology revolution, and they are eager to share their wealth of knowledge and skills!
One of my favorite things ever is when I hear things like, “It feels like Christmas day!” after helping a client implement a new, streamlined solution to their processes.
And, it really felt like Christmas day when my client realized that they wouldn’t have to drive around town collecting paper checks and could now accept payments quickly and easily online via QB Payments. Hours saved!
When you’re working with a Bookkeeper, you don’t just have the accounting tasks outsourced, you have a partner rooting for your success! You’ve also got a specialized resource on your side to make sure operations are running as smoothly as possible. It’s so much easier than going at it alone!
Here’s what you can expect when you're ready to add a Bookkeeper to your growing team
- Compliance Support - Not sure about all the legal requirements necessary to operate your business? Your Bookkeeper will examine the different aspects of your business to ensure you’re in compliance on the local, state, and federal levels.
- Technology - There are thousands of apps and technology solutions to help you streamline processes, and save you time and money! Bookkeepers often partner with app developers to bring you the training, best prices, and resources you’ll need to get the most out of the technology.
- Financials - When you’re partnering with a Bookkeeper, you’ll never be in the dark about your financials again. With accounts frequently updated and reconciliations completed on a schedule, you’ll have current and accurate financial reports at your fingertips!
I absolutely light up when I’m able to save clients hours of work by introducing them to a new system, a piece of technology, or workflow that they may not have considered before. Time is our most valuable asset after all. When we start saving hours by automating, refining processes, and outsourcing, we have more time to work on our business instead of in it… not to mention the valuable rest and family time that we all need.
Wouldn’t it be so awesome for every day to feel as amazing as Christmas Day? I think so!
