Don’t Try to be Your Small Business’ Bookkeeper




If you are like most business owners, you are tempted to wear as many metaphorical hats as possible. Self-reliance is a virtue yet it also has the potential to be a fault. Instead of trying to keep track of all the numbers related to your business, let the professionals do the work on your behalf. Outsource your small business bookkeeping and fractional CFO work to the specialists and you’ll be liberated to focus on what you do best: building your business, developing new value offerings and serving your customers to the best of your ability.


Recognize the Rules, Laws and Formalities of Bookkeeping


Bookkeeping, accounting and duties related to the role of CFO are governed by nuanced rules and laws. Look beyond the fact that QuickBooks has become slightly easier to use as time has progressed. There is still a steep learning curve to QuickBooks as well as other accounting software. Add in the fact that small business owners have to abide by a comprehensive set of rules and there is even more reason to let the experienced bookkeepers handle your numbers.


Avoid the trap that countless other small business owners have fallen into in attempting to be their small business’ own bookkeeper and recognize the fact that you do not have an advanced accounting degree. Outsource your small business bookkeeping, accounting and fractional CFO work to the industry’s experts and you’ll be able to invest the entirety of the time you dedicate to work to your own specialty. The icing on the cake is the fact that you’ll sleep soundly knowing you have outsourced your numbers to specialists who understand all the intricacies of accounting rules and industry regulations.


Mistakes can be Costly


If you were to interview small business owners who attempted to expand their work duties to bookkeeping projects, you would find a couple common themes in their responses: regret and financial loss. It merely takes one mistake with the company’s books to lead to a significant inaccuracy that shapes decision-making and ultimately sabotages the business down the line. One bookkeeping mistake also has the potential to spur a fine or other financial penalty that takes a chunk out of your company’s bottom line.


Outsourcing your small business bookkeeping to a team of proven experts whose cost pales in comparison to the potential end cost of a bookkeeping mistake that violates the law or other rules or regulations and spurs financial penalty.


Above all, don’t lose sight of the fact that you are a business professional as opposed to a bookkeeper. You should not have to attempt to master the nuances of t-charts, journal line entries, reconciliations and financial statements.


Do What You Do Best


Perhaps the best reason why you should not attempt to be your small business’s bookkeeper is the fact that it is not why you started the company or currently manage the company. You have a sharp business mind yet you never intended to spend your time bookkeeping.


Let the professional small business bookkeepers handle the numbers on your behalf and you’ll finally be able to dedicate your time, energy and focus to what you love – your business. Keep in mind, your time equates to your money. There is no sense spending your limited time attempting to overcome complex numbers-related hurdles when our small business bookkeeping specialists are here to embrace those challenges on your behalf.
