Everything You Should Know About Virtual Bookkeeping

If you’re a business owner running your company full-time, you know too well how valuable every second is. After all, it’s true what they say — time is money. If you need help with the financial side of your business, hiring a bookkeeper is a great idea. A professional bookkeeper can help with payroll expenses, accounts payable, inventory management, accounting services, and more so you can focus on other aspects of your business.

In today’s digital age, virtual bookkeepers are more popular than ever. At Jessi’s Bookkeeping and Financial Services, I provide top-tier bookkeeping services to businesses across the United States from my home in South Dakota. I’ll break down how virtual bookkeeping can benefit your business and how you can get started today.

What Is Virtual Bookkeeping?

Virtual bookkeeping allows a professional bookkeeper to provide accounting and payroll services to businesses anywhere. For example, at Jessi’s Bookkeeping and Financial Services, I conduct digital consultations where I discuss everything with my clients  — from their business’s unique needs to the financial tools and software they prefer. Virtual bookkeeping is convenient because you can view your financial files anytime without making phone calls or booking meetings. 

Additionally, most virtual bookkeepers will be happy to meet with you face-to-face if they live in the area. At Jessi’s Bookkeeping and Financial Services, I can schedule periodic in-person meetings to review your finances and discuss my recommendations for your business. Therefore, you can get the best of both worlds!

Benefits of Virtual Bookkeeping

There are many benefits to digital bookkeeping that may make it the better choice for your business over traditional financial services, including:

  • More industry-specific accounting resources since you have access to thousands of professionals across the nation
  • On-demand insights about your financial metrics
  • Additional monthly, quarterly, and annual reports
  • The convenience and time-saving benefits of conducting business virtually

You can hire a full-time or part-time bookkeeper or outsource the work to an independent contractor or freelancer. Your options are limitless, so you can pick a virtual bookkeeper that best meets your business’s unique needs and schedule.

Going Paperless

Many businesses are paperless these days, but some still rely on manual accounting methods with no digital involvement. Not only is paper-based bookkeeping time-consuming, but it also increases the odds of human error. Virtual bookkeeping can eliminate the issues of manual bookkeeping if you still keep physical invoices. If you’re ready to leap to digital, you can expect better outcomes for your business with a professional virtual bookkeeper.

Can Your Business Benefit From Virtual Bookkeeping?

Almost any type of business can benefit from virtual bookkeeping services. If you and your team are comfortable using online tools, you’ll likely enjoy the services virtual bookkeeping provides. 

Furthermore, businesses of all sizes can benefit from virtual bookkeeping. Bookkeepers prevent financial surprises down the road and allow you to address potential problems early. They also give you and your staff the availability to focus on your core services.
