Is My Business Too Small To Require a Bookkeeper?

bookkeeper for small business

Have you ever been to a point where you are in conversation with another business owner and they have recommended their bookkeeper for small businesses, and you have said that your business is too small to warrant one?

It happens more times than you think to many different small business owners – but what you may not realise is that small businesses stand to get the most out of utilising one.

Why We Run a Business

When you started your small business it was undoubtedly because you knew you could make it work. It starts with a dream and it’s fueled by keeping on top of your finances and accounts. It is, after all, the key to successful business running.

9 out of 10 business owners will also undoubtedly admit that maintaining the books instead of running the business growth is the most frustrating part of the entire process. It comes from that DIY mentality of trusting no one but yourself in your own little business – and that does not mean you are not open to mistakes occurring on your watch.

Financial Angel

Financial help, such as bookkeeping services, at first seems a hard thing to justify because you keep everything so tight with expenditure. As things begin to grow with your business and things get to breaking point, your bookkeeping will begin to fall behind because you will have 100 other tasks to take care of every day.

This is the point where you either desperately need a bookkeeper to catch up or you already have one who is focused solely on maintaining your business finances helping you to grow more smoothly and less chaotic.

Competitive Tools

Every business owner wants access to the tools that make their business that extra level of competitive and profitable, and the most important tool to have is small business bookkeeping solutions.

Where else could you find a professional organizing your financial processes, preparing your financial statements, and presenting strong data for future use in budgeting and fundraising? These are just the key responsibilities of a professional bookkeeper.

When strategic analysis and forecasting begin to become a business priority, your established relationship with a bookkeeper already has your back and the foundation for your business growth covered. Your bookkeeper will keep a general ledger and record all accounting data – such as outgoing credits and incoming debts – and have your books reconciled alongside the monthly balances received from financial institutions and correct discrepancies.

Your bookkeeper also manages payments to vendors and accounts payable, as well as prepares invoices for customers and manages accounts receivable. On top of all of this, your bookkeeping partner maintains records of inventory and produces balance sheets, income statements and other financial documents that get you to grips with your small business’s financial strength. They can even go so far as managing your payroll.

Whenever someone mentions a bookkeeper for small businesses in conversation next time, know that all of these areas and others are open to you when you consider one.

What our clients say…

“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.”

Sarah Rekia, Site Welfare

Diane has been providing her services to my company for approximately 6 months now and I can honestly say that due to her assistance, my company is running a lot more smoothly than it has at any time over the previous 30 years that it has existed.

I would just like to say that I would recommend her services to any business, whatever the size, as I can only see that her services would be beneficial to any company that may choose to employ her services.
