A Quick "How to" on Choosing a Bookkeeper

If you are like most small business owners, you only see your accountant once a year, but how do you keep your finances in order the rest of the time? Hire a professional bookkeeper. A bookkeeper will have a direct impact on your organization by gathering all the information you need to stay compliant. So when looking for the right bookkeeping service consider all your options before jumping in.

Determine Your Needs

Do you need to have someone at your office every day? Are you using financial software, and only need someone to reconcile that data once a week, or once a month? Need help setting up your QuickBooks? Want help with Custom Reports? Are you looking for a full- service bookkeeper? What are you hoping to accomplish by using the services of a bookkeeper?

Talk and Listen

You will get more out of your bookkeeping experience if you can learn more about your records and finances. So speak with any bookkeeper before you hire them and ask lots of questions. Are they addressing your concerns and needs? Do they have a plan for tackling your ledgers and records? Look for someone you feel comfortable with, and who can communicate using terms you understand.

Look Beyond the Ledger

Find a bookkeeper who offers advice and support as well as transnational and recording services. Bookkeepers work with lots of financial data, so they are uniquely qualified to make suggestions, or offer advice. Find a bookkeeper who is willing to be a consultant so that you can make use of your financial records as thoroughly as possible.
