As your business grows, the process gets harder and more time consuming, simply keeping on top of the paperwork becomes complex. Mistakes happen – sometimes expensive ones! Somehow you are getting bogged down wrangling receipts, instead of being able to focus on your goal of building the business.
So, what’s the answer? One smart solution is to outsource your bookkeeping to a specialist team.
What does a bookkeeper do exactly?
Bookkeeping (literally keeping the books) means recording the financial transactions of a business, including purchases, payments, sales, receipts, and income. A bookkeeper’s role entails data entry and keeping accurate, compliant records. They track incoming payments and will sometimes issue invoices, depending on their job description or contract terms. On the other side of the ledger, they correctly categorise expenses, and organise receipts to keep track of who you paid and how much you spent.
Bookkeeping services that help keep your business humming:
- Payment of supplier or contractor invoices
- Monitoring debt levels and debts as they are due
- Recording incoming cash and deposits
- Reconciling accounts every month
- Reporting on issues and variances when they pop up
- Managing and processing your payroll
Tip: Some of these services might fall outside of a standard bookkeeping contract and may cost extra. It’s worth asking what’s included up front. A good bookkeeper will be transparent about which services they provide.
