Small Business Bookkeeping [Why a Professional Matters]

Small businesses like yours are the heart of the economy. Bookkeeping is the foundation of all your financial activities. So it stands to reason that small business bookkeeping is critical to the health of the economy.


So, if it’s not already apparent… I cannot stress enough the importance of bookkeeping. ACCURATE and CONSISTENT bookkeeping.


Your books contain the data you need to make ALL your business decisions. It’s the best tool you have.


Bookkeeping is important whether you do it yourself or hire a professional.


Why Bookkeeping is So Important


Bookkeeping helps with taxes, dealing with financial institutions and investors, securing a loan, deciding if you can hire more staff, or deciding if you can afford that new product that will increase work efficiency.


It’s interesting how even things like small expenses are affected by how well you do your bookkeeping. Too often I see clients surprised by an expense they are paying for that they don’t use anymore or thought they cancelled a while ago. If you were going through your books twice a month, you would notice that expense and take care of it then, instead of wasting money for a few more months until you get around to it.


Here’s what bookkeeping means to you:

  • Accurate data of your business
  • Being able to make financial decisions without doubts
  • Free up time for clients
  • Dramatically alleviate stress on how your business is running
  • Growth is inevitable when you’re tracking data consistently


A note on hiring bookkeepers. Be aware in your search that some professional bookkeepers are more concerned about data entry and compliance, than actual consulting. Just make sure you know what you are getting and not getting when hiring a professional.

One concern in hiring a professional is the cost. No doubt it’s a factor that should be considered. A better way to look at purchasing services is to view them as investments. (Pretty much all your expenses should be viewed as an investment that needs a return of some kind to be worth it, but this is especially true when it comes to services.) When talking about bookkeeping, just the fact that your business will naturally grow and you’ll have more time for more important things, that will more than make up for the fee.


Now add in consulting and regular strategizing, your return will increase exponentially.
