Do I Need a Bookkeeper?

As a small business owner, you have competing demands on your time and money. It can be challenging to decide when a task is worth outsourcing. When your business was small, bookkeeping may have been a reasonably simple task, but your financial statements have become more complicated as you continue to grow.

Here are a few signs that it’s time to hire a professional bookkeeper:

  • You can’t find time to update your financial records.
  • Your sales are increasing, but your profits aren’t. 
  • You struggle to organize your financial records when tax season rolls around. 
  • Your time could be better spent on other aspects of your business.

If this sounds like you, schedule a consultation today. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your financial strengths and weaknesses whether we work together or not.

How Does Bookkeeping Help a Business?

Bookkeeping gives you a clear picture of your financial situation by carefully recording income and expenses and compiling financial data into a monthly statement. When you choose Jessi’s Bookkeeping and Financial services as your small business bookkeeper, you also receive expert financial advice to help your business grow and thrive. Here are some of the ways bookkeeping can help your business:

Informs Financial Strategy

Bookkeeping and financial reporting allow you to budget for future business expenses. For example, if you need to update your equipment or open a new location, you’ll need to know how much you are currently making and what you can afford. Bookkeeping can also help you set and achieve smaller financial goals, such as making a new hire or improving your profit margin. Most importantly, it allows you to catch financial issues early while there is still time to find a solution.

Simplifies Tax Time

Taxes are stressful for any small business owner. Finding the necessary documentation and coordinating with your tax professional can take up time that you don’t have. If you are scrambling to organize your records every year, it’s time to invest in small business bookkeeping. Your bookkeeper will keep your documents in order and deliver them promptly to your tax professional.

Keeps Organized Records

Having organized records is essential for more than just taxes. For example, if you plan to apply for a business loan or secure investors, you’ll need to demonstrate that your business is profitable. Imagine having everything you need to show your lender or investor at your fingertips. That’s the power of working with a good bookkeeper.
