How can I tell whether it’s worth my time to learn Quickbooks and try to handle my own bookkeeping?2022-03-25T15:58:22+00:00

As a business owner, you know what’s really important and you also know all the obstacles that keep you from doing that. Most business owners know what they should be doing with their time in order to make their business succeed. You may start the day with clear goals and the right priorities, but all too often, the urgent overcomes the important — paperwork, phone calls and other compelling distractions pull you away from your real priorities.

What analytical feedback can you offer, if any, on the bookkeeping numbers you provide, once everything is caught up? Do you offer any reports? How often are reports available? …and are they really that essential to have? I think I usually have a basic gut feeling as to how my business is doing.2022-11-01T17:34:38+00:00

Running a business on a “gut feeling” is more like gambling than managing…

Gut feelings are better than nothing; but gut feelings can be wrong . . . and being wrong can be expensive. Knowing your real numbers is essential to making sound business decisions. There’s no substitute for accurate, timely reporting. You can also benchmark your business against your competitors’ average numbers. (This information is available if you know where to look.)

Our clients have a solid handle on Inventory, Payables, Receivables, where they are making money and where they are losing money as well as hidden costs that accurate reporting uncovers.

And, of course, you can’t cover expenses, file a tax return or apply for a loan with a “gut feeling” about your business.

What are bookkeeping services?2022-03-25T15:56:04+00:00

A bookkeeper is the mechanic of a company’s financial engine. They keep everything in order and properly maintained so that the machine is producing accurate financial information and manages the necessary functions to keep the business running. A good bookkeeper does things like sending invoices, paying bills, tracking all the numbers and ensuring the business owner has accurate financial information to make good business decisions.

What if I don’t have time for my own bookkeeping?2022-03-25T15:55:06+00:00

“I’m too busy to get anything done!” is something we often hear from harried business owners. This is our favorite type of client to work with because our services can help them re-energize and refocus on what they should be doing while we keep the “b.s.” off their back.

What size company is too big or too small?2022-03-25T15:49:41+00:00

No company is too big or too small. Our services simply vary to meet each company’s unique needs.
