Why Use a Bookkeeping Service?

Here are Your Top 4 Reasons

Last week I was blown away by the love and comments I received on the post about my Yoga Training.  I can happily share that I passed the test and can now add 60 more hours to my goal of becoming a yoga therapist 500 hr certified! 

Next Sunday, I am traveling (again!) to Vegas at the Latino Tax Fest.  Doesn't that sound like fun????  We will be representing Qbox.  If you are a QuickBooks Desktop user, I highly recommend this app to your app stack. With QBox, you can share QuickBooks, all the Microsoft type files with other users over the Internet, collaborate efficiently by sharing your changes automatically.

Back to the post de jour!  Think you can do your own books instead of using a bookkeeping service? There are many reasons that a bookkeeping service can benefit you. You may not be able to replicate these results on your own. Here are the top four reasons to use a bookkeeping service instead of doing it yourself.


#1 Helpful Advice

You may be just starting out and unsure about billing. Alternatively, you could be established, yet struggling to make a profit. You can spend many hours researching financial advice on your own. But you can save time and money by hiring a bookkeeper to help you. A bookkeeping service can advise you on how to manage your expenses. We can help you keep your accounts payable and receivable in order. We also offer tips on budgeting and reducing your tax burden. With our helpful advice, you can be further ahead than going it alone. Our years of expertise in the accounting world can help you avoid pitfalls and succeed faster.


#2 Software Knowledge

Unless you are tech savvy, business software can be a pain in your neck. You can spend a long time conquering the learning curve for your accounting software. On the other hand, you can rely on your bookkeeper’s software knowledge to get your accounts in order. We are familiar with many types of accounting software. We will teach you methods to use that will help your business run with efficiency. If you are looking to upgrade, we can recommend the best software to facilitate your billing and reporting needs. There’s no need to spend precious time learning about your software. We offer our software knowledge to all our clients.


 #3 Informative Reports

To know how your business is doing, it’s important to have the right reports. This can be difficult to figure out on your own. A bookkeeping service can help you run the right reports on a consistent basis. The reports we create help you with bank reconciliations, invoicing, payroll, database management and monthly assessments. You can use these reports to file taxes in a timely and accurate manner. We can set up reports that track your earnings and expenses, so you know what to do differently month to month. Your bookkeeper will know which reports will be most helpful for where you are right now.

#4 IRS Compliance

Being compliant with the IRS is essential for the success of your business. You may not be aware of mistakes you are making. You could also be missing out on tax benefits if you are doing your books on your own. A bookkeeper knows the ins and outs of working with the IRS. We stay informed of the changes to tax laws, so you can stay in compliance. It’s a challenge to know all of this when you are operating without a bookkeeper. This can be one of the biggest benefits of working with a bookkeeping service.
