Isn?t bookkeeping just plugging 1 or 2 figures into a PC programme?
In a word, NO!
It continues to astonish me how many people out there and in business think that all bookkeepers do is enter figures into a PC programme which then wonderfully spits out a perfect set of accounts.
Hmm, if only!!
Bookkeeping, or in a sense good bookkeeping, is a load more involved than merely pumping numbers into a program and it is a misguided a real long shot idea that bookkeepers are just glorified information entry operators! Good bookkeepers will be an asset to your business. Good bookkeepers know the way to enter figures into a computer programme properly, or write up a ledger, but just as significantly, they know precisely where and how those figures should be entered.
Making an attempt to unscramble a mess that a non-bookkeeper has made is a long thing! It?s something that we at Bookkeeper?s Base do all of the time. Unfortunately for many business owners it isn?t until a they are in a state of desperateness because they haven't any idea of what is happening in their business.
Sound all to familiar??
Personally, it gives me and my team a great feeling of satisfaction to be in a position to take a complete info entry mess and turn it into a neat, tidy and accurate set of accounts. However , with any service which adds some value it comes with a monetary investment, and in my opinion, it’s an investment worth making and sadly (hindsight being 20/20) one that would've been better used in contracting a bookkeeper from the word go and not having a untidy situation in the first place. It?s no coincidence that once a business has engaged a pro bookkeeper and has simple to read profit & loss statements as well as a solid understanding of how their money is being utilized , that these entrepreneurs become firm changes to employing a bookkeeper.
Think of a bookkeeper as you would an accountant. A bookkeeper will help you with your business and will make your accountant?s job a lot easier.
You wouldn?t get your office helper to do your tax return for you, so why would you let them run blindfolded with the financial info that goes into it?
