One aspect of business that is so important to keep up to date and accurate is your bookkeeping and accounting. As busy as you are, it’s hard to keep up with that part of your business. Instead of hiring someone, friends have suggested using Quickbooks, but you aren’t the most computer savvy and really don’t have the time to use it anyway.
Bookkeeping is really important. It directly affects your business in so many ways. Not only in paying your taxes, but also in planning things like growing your business, purchasing new equipment, hiring staff or techs and so on.
Putting it off isn’t an option. So what can you do? You could hire a bookkeeper, but that entails benefits and all of the things hiring an employee entails. You could hire an outside bookkeeper, but then you are one of many clients.
Use an outsourcing virtual service that handles your front office and back office as a unit. Why? They already know your business. You were careful to find a service that knows contracting inside and out. They already have access to your scheduling software and have done a great job taking care of your clients and getting jobs on your calendar.
So why not turn over the invoicing and bookkeeping as well? Your scheduling software keeps track of the jobs in time and materials. They have what they need. It’s the perfect synergy!
