Advantages of having a bookkeeping service

You might be great at designing dresses, can write up a storm or be a skilled mechanic but when it comes to bookkeeping, leave it to the experts. The secret to a successful business is doing what you’re good at and outsourcing what you’re not. Here are five advantages of having a bookkeeping service.

Cost-effective

Hiring a bookkeeping service can be more cost effective than hiring casual or part time staff to do your bookkeeping. There is no need to purchase and maintain computer systems, buy expensive accounting software and upgrades or invest in expensive training and development of staff. Office space does not need to be allocated to a staff member and there is no superannuation, leave entitlements or any other costs that a full or part time employee incurs.

Time effective

A bookkeeping service has the expertise and know-how to look after your accounts and let you focus on the day-to-day running of your business. Bookkeepers should be flexible and schedule meetings around your busy work schedule and be able to produce reports and figures at a moment’s notice to accommodate any last minute meetings. A bookkeeping service can also keep your accountant up to date with things such as BAS lodgement status, when they can expect to have your files for annual tax return and accounts preparation and can also chase up unpaid invoices. This allows you to manage and grow your business without having to focus on administrative tasks.

Higher profits

A bookkeeping service puts you in control of your cash flow, reduces tax liabilities and maximises profits through management controls. Bookkeeping services can provide a regular reporting service and keep processes up-to-date. This includes detailed knowledge of balance sheet financial position and profit & loss performance to date which can be analysed in greater detail if required. You can use your customised reports to make business decisions, prepare budgets, and review your past performance to forecast the future plans of the business and maximise profits.

Reduced tax liabilities

By outsourcing your bookkeeping, you can rely on the expertise, knowledge, and experience that using an outside consultant brings to a business. When you work with a bookkeeping service you are ensuring that you have a knowledgeable specialist on your side that will use all of their expertise to your businesses’ advantage and reduce any tax liabilities for your business, ensure that the bookkeeping is done accurately and does not incur any penalties for late lodgement or inaccurate data.

Peace of mind

Hiring a bookkeeper gives you piece of mind that a regular reporting system is in place, processes are up to date, you are managing your cash flow, paying invoices on time and chasing up any unpaid invoices. Your bookkeeper should keep you abreast of any changes in regulation and be prepared for any important lodgement dates such as your BAS statement and annual tax return. The bookkeeping service should be a natural extension of your business and allow you to concentrate on other areas of your business knowing that your bookkeeping is in good hands.

Hiring a bookkeeping service should be seen an investment for your business not an expense. By employing a bookkeeping service, this ensures your bookkeeping is managed by a specialist with up-to-date knowledge of any tax legislation to save you money, reduce your tax liabilities, streamline your business and maximise your profits.
