Benefits of Getting a Bookkeeper Earlier in the Financial Year

Owning your own business can be one of the best feelings in the world, but some elements feel a real drag within it. When we ask most business owners, it is always centred around those business finances, books to balance and expenses to keep on top of – which is why many people find themselves in a tizzy at the end of the year. Professional bookkeeping services are vital to all businesses because it makes everything so much easier to budget towards. Having that income and those expenses properly organised makes it a lot easier to review your financial resources and costs.

Leaving to the end of the year is easy, but what about if you were on top of your books from the very beginning of the year by using professional bookkeeping services?

Preparing for Tax

Filing taxes at the end of the year, as annoying as it is, is an essential practice. With bookkeeping practice in place, your financial information can be readily compiled for the tax season and you won’t have the taxman breathing down your neck.

When HMRC demands a financial statement from your business for tax reasons, the bookkeeping done for months ahead regularly will help predict the outcome more accurately with the detailed balance sheets made by your bookkeeper.

Organised Records

Finding those crucial pieces of business documents before a deadline is one of the biggest stresses a business owner can face. Small errors can cause huge problems and businesses of any size want to avoid them at all costs. Small business bookkeeping solutions are the key to eliminating that risk.

Having the books done often throughout the year means that you are constantly on top of your records and not lost trying to find the right record or document. Over time, it becomes much easier to find the bits of information that are desperately required and in an organized fashion.

Meeting Targets

No doubt your goal with your business is for it to grow. The biggest pitfall in that goal is having poor financial records which will slow your progress considerably.

Without accurate numbers or data to analyse, your set goals will be a far off reality as you stumble over the financial potholes that you create for yourself. Without bookkeeping services, you will be at the mercy of your guessing on everything, and no doubt left disappointed in the slow progress against where you envision yourself to be.

Bookkeeping services are crucial for your business in a variety of ways, not just because you are not the expert on financials. Contact the team at Pebbles Bookkeeping today for professional bookkeeping services and getting on track early in the year for a smooth financial year-end.

Don't just take our word for it...

I changed book-keepers around a year ago because of a disagreement.  I employed Diane of Pebbles and having been with the same firm for 10 years, I was amazed by how easy working with Diane was.  Not only did the change save me money but also saved me time.  Utilising new technologies (to me) have massively improved the amount of money I can claim back in VAT and has made the whole process speedier and well as easier.  Even when Diane is chasing me for information she does in a friendly professional manner.  I’m thrilled to be working with her and would recommend her to anyone.

A massive thank you to Diane at Pebbles Bookkeeping & HR. You took the huge stress away from where do I start, with employee policies etc. You have created us a great, informative employee handbook, covering all necessary policies and risk assessments in a matter of no time and from the other side of the world too. I will definitely be in touch for any future help our company needs.

“In bringing Pebbles onboard, it has made me wonder why we decided to try and do our own bookkeeping at all. Pebbles came in and sorted 18 months worth of mess we had unwittingly created, and we cannot be more grateful. I wish I had been told about them years ago and I hope every business out there struggling would give them a call to fully see the benefits they are missing out on.”
