For your business to run smoothly it is essential that your
accounts are in order. Many companies will focus of the growth of their
business and keep putting off the paperwork until it very soon becomes
apparent that they are falling behind. Most small to medium sized
businesses that fall behind with their accounts will resort to paying
accountancy practice premium rates for their bookkeeping services, but
with a little bit of research it is possible to save money by retaining
the services of a professionally qualified bookkeeper.
If possible, a bookkeeper should be contracted when a
business is setting up. A professional bookkeeper can create working
systems, integrate your stock control and invoicing procedures with
your accounting software. Integration of all of your business processes
will allow you to create intricate financial projections, state of play
data and client account tracking information, which will reduce time
dealing with debt reclamation and bank dealings.
If your company has been trading for some time and you are
finding that your accounts are slipping into chaos, then hiring a
professional bookkeeper is your most cost effective and stress reducing
course of action. A bookkeeper will have seen many troubled accounts
and will be un-phased by the task ahead. The size of the company and
the number of years that your accounts are behind will be the main
issues that affect the cost of bringing your books into order, but a
self employed bookkeeper is by far the cheapest method of getting back
in control of your business.
Finding Local Bookkeeping Services:
Businesses find that they require a bookkeeper that can visit
their premises and work on their accounts in situ or a bookkeeper that
can collect their stored accounts and process them at the bookkeepers
place of work. In both of these situations it is an advantage if you
can find a local bookkeeping service to undertake your accounts. Using
a local bookkeeping service will have several advantages to your
business. Firstly a local bookkeeper will be easier to find references
for; they will have knowledge of your local area, suppliers and
services; their closeness to your business will make visits far easier
and can reduce the time spent in chasing problems etc.
There are bookkeeping companies that will offer remote
services and they can be very cost effective if you feel that you can
work in this way. WeBookkeepers.co.uk is only focussing on local
bookkeeping services at present, we feel that this offers a bigger
value to more clients, but we may create a remote bookkeeper section at
