Do You Run a Small Business and Not Know the Benefits of a Bookkeeper?

benefits of a bookkeeper

No one is going to argue that running a small to medium business in the 2020s is hard, but some will argue that you make running it harder than it needs to be. One area that many business owners are feeling they are gaining a lot is by doing their accounting and bookkeeping.

Whilst the thinking may be that you are saving yourself money, it is more often a false economy because you are losing considerable time in every other area whilst you are dedicated to just one.

Granted, handing over the financial aspects of your company is a big trust hurdle to get over, especially if your business is on the ropes. Spending a little bit of your time talking with other business owners who use bookkeeping services to aid with their business financial aspects may open your eyes to how much easier your work can be. Find out more benefits of a bookkeeper…

Time is a Commodity

A qualified bookkeeper saves small businesses time by keeping track of a business’s finances and preparing accurate financial reports. In doing this, the business owner finds their time freed up to concentrate on growing the business with the help of a genuine financial roadmap.

This not only frees up more time to concentrate on marketing and sales – the key areas that a business needs to reach new clients – but also provides peace of mind that everything is running as it should with your financial side of the business.

Saving Money

Bookkeeping services are just as qualified as accountants to handle all of your business accounts, which is why accountants partner up with bookkeepers to get a more accurate financial forecast for their clients.

The benefits of a bookkeeper is that they help small businesses save money, by ensuring that the company is claiming all of the deductions and tax credits that it is entitled to, as well as being able to help negotiate better terms with suppliers and lenders. Bookkeepers can also identify what you are unnecessarily spending money on, such as expired licences and areas that can be reduced with better packages.

Expertise and Guidance

When small businesses want to get to the next stage and grow to medium, it is a time when they don’t realise how essential their bookkeeping is to the process. Experienced bookkeepers bring valuable expertise and guidance to ensure that your business has a solid financial footing for growth.

This expertise helps your overall business plan, financial goals and projections and is essential for securing funds from investors, showcasing that you have everything in order financially and tremendous organisation of where your money goes and how it is documented.

What our clients say…

Only The Brave have used Pebbles Bookkeeping for a few years now and we treat them instinctively like an integral department of our business.

I have worked with Sean for over two decades in my previous businesses and when Sean and Diane went on their own it was a no brainer to get them involved with our day to day accounting.

Pebbles manage our bookkeeping, expenses, credit control and PAYE and have a keen eye for detail and help us spot important financial matters before they become issues.

Their integrity and honesty are unquestionable and as a result, Pebbles are an asset to our business and will continue to work with us for many years to come.

Nick Aldrich, Only The Brave

“Sean and the team at Pebbles provide bookkeeping services and do everything from processing invoices to payroll and then final accounts to trial balance.  They have put processes and systems in place that have helped the company track our projects and see if they are profitable and to help us generate better profitability and cash flow.  I highly recommend Pebbles Bookkeeping and often pass their details onto my contacts.”

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.
