Hiring a bookkeeper to dump your workload can save you an immense amount of time and effort.
A bookkeeper will work closely with you tailoring your needs and business requirements, something that an app cannot do. The bookkeeper can take away the struggles, strains and stresses of working out what goes where, after all, if you were a kitchen fitter for example, you wouldn’t expect a bookkeeper to turn up to your house and fit a brand new kitchen would you? Likewise, a bookkeeper wouldn’t expect a kitchen fitter to turn up to manage their books!
A bookkeeping or accountancy app cannot understand your needs as a customer, it won’t be able to personalise your needs. However, a bookkeeper will be able to identify what is important to you, how your business fits in with your lifestyle and your family, whether you work from home, or in an office, all of these are important when calculating the amount of tax you pay. An app can’t save you time filing receipts, save you time logging records and ensuring all the expenses are entered into the correct category.
Likewise, an app won’t talk to you and tell you where you may be going wrong, a bookkeeper can keep you on the right track so that you may not have to redo all your handwork when it comes to filing your tax returns.
Hiring a bookkeeper can save you time, effort and money and prevent you from falling foul of the complicated processes of filing your expenses and tax returns.
