Tired of being financially in the dark? Or up until early hours doing bookkeeping?

Five reasons you should stop bookkeeping and team with the specialists

Small business owners have a lot to think about: sales, staffing, customer service, vision, growth, the list goes on. In fact, it is hard not to think about your business when you’re a small business owner. Perhaps the one responsibility you would rather not think about is bookkeeping/accounting?

Some business owners try to avoid the hassles of accounting by simply ignoring the problem. “I’m too busy,” they say, but no business can hide from accounting. If late lodgement penalties aren’t motivating enough, hopefully the knowledge that you have basically no visibility into the vital indicators of business health will be.

Sure, there are online tools out there to make the process less burdensome, but could your time be better spent? And while you might think that a part-time bookkeeper might solve your problem, it really depends on your needs, and there are downsides there too.

HERE ARE what we think are THE TOP 5 REASONS TO OUTSOURCE YOUR bookkeeping to SMART Bookkeeping Solutions in Mornington

1) Focus on Growth

This may seem obvious to some, but every minute you spend on your books is a minute you aren’t growing your business. There are plenty of accountants and bookkeepers out there who can do your books better and more efficiently than you, but no one can grow your company better that you can. So, while you focus on growing, selling, hiring and raising more money, our bookkeeping team can handle all of your Invoicing (A/R), billing (A/P), manage your vendor relationships, issue your financial statements.

2) Generate More Revenue

Inefficient internal bookkeeping processes can be a time waster for everybody in your organisation, and time wasted is time not spent building revenue. Our bookkeeping team will set up new efficiencies to reduce the number of touch points with each accounting item (check, invoice, bill, etc.) and allow your entire team to spend more time performing revenue generating activities.

3) Enjoy the Power of Teams

Individual full-time or part-time bookkeepers can be great assets to a company, if you have a great one, well done, hold onto them! If you don’t, or your great bookkeeper has decided to leave, our team can put in place sound processes to ensure important information and processes are not just handled by one person. Working with our bookkeeping team, you are protected against the risk that your bookkeeper may move, quit or go on vacation.

4) Access to Best in Class Software

Choosing the right invoicing, time tracking, expense reporting or payroll software can be arduous. So, stop doing it! Our bookkeeping team is in the business of knowing all about the best technology solutions to streamline your internal processes.

5) Grow with Confidence

Small businesses have a funny habit of growing very quickly. We know it’s a fancy problem to have, but it can be a real hassle if your finance team can’t scale quickly with you. As an accounting firm our bookkeeping team is infinitely scalable and can become your virtual CFO when the business requires it.
