What can happen if you don't keep on top of your bookkeeping?

Most business owners dread dealing with the bookkeeping, seeing it as boring and non productive time.  But having bad bookeeping, or none at all, can have a serious impact on your business.  The inability to see what is happening clearly, can leave you in severe financial difficulty.

Bad decisions

If you don’t keep your bookkeeping up to date, you won’t have the information you need to make an informed decision.  Poor financial information will make growth harder and riskier.

Cash flow problems

You could find yourself in a situation where you have no idea what is coming in or going out of your business, wondering where all your money has gone and end up not having enough to continue operating.

Penalties and fines

You may incur penalties and fines if you miss deadlines, file incorrect returns or have poor record keeping.  You may also find yourself with much higher fees from your Accountant to rectify any issues.

Less time

You can find yourself stuck behind closed doors with piles of paperwork instead of growing your business, sacrificing more of your family time to try and straighten everything out.

The solution? Outsource it!

There’s no need to deal with the bookeeping on your own.  If you don’t have the time or the skill to confidently carry out it out yourself, we can help make your bookkeeping more manageable.  You’ll have a dedicated outsourced bookkeeping expert who will be your point of contact, providing exactly what you need.  They learn the ins and outs of your business and are there with you as your business grows.

Frequently asked

Whilst outsourced 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.
