Love business, hate paperwork?
It takes a special kind of person to love bookkeeping, and unless you are a bookkeeper by trade, it’s unlikely to be you.
Why you should get somebody else to do your bookkeeping
Choosing to outsource your bookkeeping to a professional isn’t just a matter of personal convenience (though of course that’s a great benefit). Bookkeeping is a specialist function in an organisation that requires training and specialist knowledge.
For most businesses it doesn’t make sense to commit the time to learn how to do bookkeeping to a professional standard, when a professional could do the job in a fraction of the time, and often a lot more cost effectively.
Rules change – so must your books
As is the case with many specialisms, the rules of bookkeeping are not constant. Company law changes regularly, as does the tax regime. Not keeping up to date could cost you dearly in fines, penalties or simply missed opportunities to save money.
It is part of the job of a professional bookkeeper to stay up to date with the latest changes so that your books reflect best practices to maximise your opportunities and minimise your risks.
Saving you money on your year end accounts
Of course, one big advantage of choosing a professional bookkeeper rather than doing everything yourself is that your bookkeeper can work with your accountant to agree how information is to be presented to prepare your year end accounts.
By having a close, professional relationship you can be sure that the work your accountant has to do for you at year end is kept to a minimum and your bill can reflect the savings.
