A bookkeeper is responsible for the recording of financial transactions, whereas an accountant is responsible for interpreting, classifying, analyzing, reporting, and summarizing financial data.

Bookkeeping focuses on what has already happened – recording transactions after the fact. Accounting is more focused on the future – anticipating financial needs and goals while planning on how to meet or achieve them.

Keeping your books up to date is essential in the event your business gets audited while also allowing you to analyze and plan based on your collected data. This helps to minimize accounting costs. It also saves you time and money during tax season because your finances have been kept up-to-date throughout the year.

Outsourcing your bookkeeping allows you more time to analyze the books and manage the operations and sales functions of your business rather than spending your time managing and entering information into your books. While you focus on what you do best, your outsourced bookkeeper monitors your books to make sure things are running appropriately.

The internet has opened up the world to small business owners like you. You are no longer limited to bookkeepers and other service providers in your area. Web access and online software makes it easy for bookkeepers to securely access their client’s books anytime, anywhere. Instead of choosing from a small pool of bookkeepers in your area, business owners can now select a bookkeeper who truly understands their industry and operations.

This is a judgment-free zone – we can help!  We will review where you currently stand and give you a quote and timeframe for getting your books current while simultaneously working on your current financials, allowing you to start getting good information right away so that you can start making smarter business decisions.
