Keeping up with payroll, expenses, profits, and taxes is a full-time job. As a small business owner, you already have enough to keep up with – why not take your business’ day-to-day financial needs off of to your to-do list? A professional bookkeeper can help you keep your finances in order and give you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about the future of your business. Read on to learn more about what bookkeepers do and the top benefits they offer small businesses.

What Does A Bookkeeper Do?

A bookkeeper, also known as a bookkeeping clerk, is responsible for some or all of your company’s financial accounts. Bookkeepers typically record your company’s profits and expenses, process payroll, manage cash, and prepare and file your company’s tax forms. Hiring a bookkeeper through a business services firm gives you the flexibility to customize your bookkeeper’s roles and responsibilities to match your level of need. Whether you need some help with tax preparation or want more regular assistance with payroll and budgeting, you’ll only pay for what you need.

Top Benefits Of Using A Bookkeeper

Bookkeepers offer several unique benefits to small business owners. By hiring an experienced bookkeeper, you can:

Save Time

  • As a small-business owner, you have enough on your plate. Financial tasks can take hours and only become more complex as you hire new employees and gain more customers. A professional bookkeeper can keep your finances in good order while you focus on growing your business. Plus, you’ll gain the peace of mind that your financial matters are being taken care of by an expert.

Save Money

  • Professional bookkeepers help you identify losses, gains, and financial patterns. By maintaining accurate and current records, your bookkeeper can give you an unparalleled level of financial transparency to guide important decisions. Additionally, a year-round bookkeeper can help your business develop and maintain good financial systems that will grow with your company.

Make Tax Season Easy

  • Business taxes are a whole different ballgame, and even small errors can impact your business’ success. Professional bookkeepers are familiar with local, state, and federal tax policies to make your taxes a breeze. Not only will they ensure your taxes are done correctly, but they’ll also identify areas that may give you a bigger tax return. A bookkeeper can also help you with tax resolution if you’re going through an audit.

Get Expert Financial Advice

  • When you own your own business, it’s easy to feel like an island. A bookkeeper becomes a built-in resource who you can bounce ideas off of, ask advice, and offer training in the areas you need help.
