Frequently Asked

Whilst outsourcing your bookkeeping might seem the easiest option, depending on the complexity and volume of your business it might not be cost effective.  Performing your own bookkeeping can definitely gain great insight when preparing your own books but if bookkeeping is just not your thing, doing it yourself may cost you more than hiring someone else to do it.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to save time and grow your business, delegating your bookkeeping to a professional will not only ensure your books are kept accurately, but will also give you immense peace of mind.

Outsourcing is a great way to acquire specialist skills rather than having all the worries associated with employing someone.  There’s no staffing issues, no holidays, no sick pay, no training and no equipment necessary.  You have access to a team of skilled professionals, who are there to help when you need them, yet you’re only paying a fraction of what you would pay to employ someone as you’re only paying for the work being undertaken.  A good bookkeeping practice is constantly innovating and training to ensure they are offering the best service and value possible to a client.

Bookkeepers and Accountants have very different roles.  A Bookkeeper takes care of your day to day recording of financial data.  An Accountant deals with higher level compliance such as filing accounts, tax returns, strategic planning and forecasting.  They analyse and interpret the data compiled by the Bookkeeper.  A good Accountant is a must for any business, even though you don’t legally need one, it’s a mistake not to have one.  You could manage without a Bookkeeper too, but then if you aren’t keeping your financial records up to date or are fully aware of the rules of bookkeeping and how to enter data correctly, you will have unreliable data and pay more for the Accountant to correct your mistakes at the end of the year.
