Four Signs it is Time to Hire an Online Bookkeeper

Bookkeeping is Holding You Back

Business owners know their companies like the back of their hands. They are the head of every department and perform the work of multiple people. Of all the roles they play, our customers express that the bookkeeper role is their least favorite. 

DIY bookkeeping holds business owners back from fully focusing on their business, which is why they decide to outsource it. Is it time for you to do the same? Let’s take a look at 4 signs that it could be time to hire an online bookkeeper! 

#1. Bookkeeping Takes Time Away from Your Business… and Your Life

Assess what bookkeeping is costing you. Is it taking significant time away from running your business? Let’s break it down. 

Suppose your time is worth $200 per hour, and you spend 10 hours per month doing your books. That costs you $2,000 per month just for bookkeeping! How much could you increase your sales? What else could you accomplish with that time? 

How does bookkeeping affect your personal life? Before partnering with us, many of our customers were up late at night and missed out on time with loved ones due to bookkeeping. Whether you are closing sales or enjoying a family dinner, your time is valuable. DIY bookkeeping does not make sense when you could be spending your time on the things that matter to you.

#2. Your Books are Behind

It is impossible to evaluate your business’ financial health when your books are behind. Old data cannot predict cash flow, track your revenue, or indicate if you are profitable. Out-of-date books may prevent you from making the best financial decisions for your business.

A professional bookkeeper can bring your books up to date. Bookkeepers input and classify your monthly activity. They also generate vital monthly reports such as Profit & Loss statements and Balance Sheets, which display your total income and expenses and your assets and liabilities, respectively. They also provide actionable insight to the current state of your finances. Xendoo bookkeepers reconcile your books weekly to keep you on track for future success.

Guess what! You are not alone. 25% of business owners are behind on their bookkeeping. Whether you are behind a few months or a few years, Xendoo will bring your finances up to date in no time. To get your books caught up, click here.  

#3. You are Not Sure if You are Doing Your Books Correctly

DIY bookkeeping leaves room for error, especially in the hectic life of a business owner. It is rarely anyone’s area of expertise (or passion). If your numbers are not adding up, do not wait until tax season to figure out why.      

Bookkeepers connect the dots between your sales, expenses, and profits to ensure business growth. They know how to properly categorize your transactions, keeping your books compliant and ready for tax season. At Xendoo Online Bookkeeping, you can rely on your dedicated team of finance experts to deliver accurate statements and financial peace of mind year-round.

#4. Tax Season is Chaotic

When tax season rolls around, do you drop off a 30-pound box of receipts at your accountant’s office and hope for the best? After all the back and forth, are you disappointed by your tax refund? 

A chaotic and unrewarding tax season is a surefire sign that it is time to hire a bookkeeper. Your bookkeeper’s meticulous organization of your finances sets you up for smooth sailing during the most dreaded time of the year. 

Best of all, because your bookkeeper understands your business and your finances, they recognize every opportunity to maximize your tax savings! You will never have to worry if you pay too much in taxes. With a bookkeeper on your corner, you can walk into tax season prepared – and you will walk out knowing you maximized your tax savings!

The Importance of Bookkeeping

Bookkeeping is vital to the success of every business. It provides insight into your financial health and drives your decisions. When your books are in order, you can strategize effectively and plan for growth. Keeping your books compliant and up to date is crucial throughout the year so that you are ready for tax season. Consistent bookkeeping habits maximize your deductions and make an otherwise stressful time, a breeze. 

Bookkeeping is preventative care for your business. It puts a microscope on your finances to help you catch small problems before they snowball. A professional bookkeeper can take the stress of bookkeeping off of your plate so you can fully focus on running your business.
