5 Signs you are ready for a Bookkeeper

How do you know when it is time to hire a Bookkeeper to do your books? Below are 5 signs that you are ready and should start looking for someone. It is important to find someone that fits your business needs. Just as you look for the right doctor that works well with you on keeping you healthy you also need to find a bookkeeper that works well with your business. Most Bookkeepers will have a free consultation that you can use to determine if they fit your business and you.

  1. You never seem to have time to do your books monthly and end up with a huge chunk of data to enter just before a deadline.
  2. You avoid entering data into your books, it is something you either don’t like to do or not sure if you are doing right.
  3. You leave bookkeeping clean up for your Tax Preparer (CPA), this ends up with a much higher bill since usually a CPA’s time is more expensive than bookkeeping services.
  4. You are not sure you are doing your books correctly, there are a lot of educational sources out there. If you are low on time or prefer to have one-on-one learner I offer these one time educational services for QuickBooks Online.
  5. Your monthly bookkeeping tasks take up way too much time. It would be worthwhile to see if a bookkeeper can either take over these tasks or help you come up with a more efficient workflow.

If you resonate with any of the above signs then you would benefit from hiring a bookkeeper. You can check in with local bookkeepers to see how much it would cost to have someone else keep your books up to date. This not only helps you be better prepared for audits, getting loans, and meeting tax deadlines it also helps give you a picture of your business health and where you might need to focus. If you are not sure about hiring a bookkeeper then maybe look into one time services to help you get your monthly bookkeeping workflow to be more efficient. I offer these one time services for more information check the Just Starting page. Using one time services can also be a way to see if the bookkeeper is someone who is a good fit for your business needs.

  1. Recently starting his own firm, my brother has been struggling to manage the cash. It’s good that you mentioned that employing a bookkeeper might be beneficial if you are unsure of how to handle your records correctly. Hiring one, in my opinion, would be beneficial for him because they can make sure that everything is documented and set up to prevent financial problems. I’ll be sure to let him know about this and look into bookkeeping services that could be able to assist him.
