We have trained many Trades, Entrepreneurs, Startups and Small Businesses over the years to be successful doing their own bookkeeping. There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be doing your own books. The transition of bookkeeping to Cloud Accounting has made it possible for business owners to take on the job themselves, especially those in the trades or field services, solopreneurs, entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Here are some myths that might have been holding you back until now…
I CAN’T KEEP UP WITH MY BOOKS!
You will create direct connections with your bank so you can download your business’ bank and credit card statements automatically, eliminating a lot of data entry.
You will be able to keep track of outstanding payments – all via your smartphone.
You will get your bank feeds to automatically feed into the right accounts and be sorted by category.
You will get automatic prompts letting you know who needs to be invoiced and when.
You will scan your receipts with apps then ditch them. Eliminate those piles of paper on your desk!
You won’t be tied to your desk! Lots of small businesses like those in the trades, operate on location. Take your business with you on your smart phone.
MY BUSINESS ISN’T GROWING!
Paying for a bookkeeper isn’t going to help with that. Take the money you would have spent on a bookkeeper and invest it back into expanding your business!
Know exactly how your business is doing all the time with instant reports showing you where your financials are at compared to your projections. Being on top of everything yourself in real time is how to grow successfully.
I’M ALREADY WORKING 24/7!
Have access to your financial data anywhere, anytime.
Look at your finances in real time! It’s instant and easy.
You can also use apps to send and receive your payments so there is no need to be around to sign cheques
There is no need for employees to call to check for their work schedule – you can use an app for timesheets and scheduling.
Modern cloud accounting is fast and easy.
I THINK BOOKKEEPING IS TOO BORING
You will always know where the money is being earned and spent. It’s only natural that if you are doing the bookkeeping, you are going to have firsthand knowledge of what your cash flow is, where your most profitable areas lie and where you can make savings. Profit and savings are definitely not boring!
Learn a new skill and remain in control of your business! Cloud Systems have been designed with the non-bookkeeper business owner in mind. You’ll still need training on the system you use of course but the systems these days are very user friendly.
I WON’T NEED ANY HELP AT ALL
We make sure your software is setup correctly, we train on small business consulting and give you all the tools you need to be successful. It is important that you have training before you start your books.
You will still need an accountant to work with and if you don’t have one, we will be happy to refer one for you.
Our belief is that as a small business owner/startup/entrepreneur who processes your own accounts, you will have a better understanding overall of your business and this will ultimately make your business more successful. Ready for success? Get in touch!
