More than the numbers adding up, one of the reasons why bookkeeping is so important is because it can get you meaningful reports of your finances quickly. Reports you can rely on to make sound business decisions. This is where a specialist bookkeeper comes in. Having a bookkeeping who is deeply connected and experienced in your industry will more than likely provide much more accurate books than a bookkeeper who does not.
At Evolve, we have specialty business industries too, like hospitality (hotels, liquor stores, pubs & clubs), automotive (mechanical and tyre repair/retail) and sanitation (cleaners and hygiene products), and medical professionals. We can also work with general small to medium sized businesses from online sellers, coaches etc.
When choosing a bookkeeper, you should take note of how they plan to manage your account. A top quality bookkeeper will show you how to organise your financial accounts, stay on top of BAS, Super and PAYG requirements, and let you know when things don’t quite look right.
How regularly do they do bookkeeping – daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly? We find the less frequent they do your books, the less quality the work (as information gets lost along the way) and you cannot get regular reports to make business decisions. Are your bookkeepers providing you with your profit and loss and balance sheet report or do they just enter in information?
Do they ensure your data is easy to review if you need to find anything? At Evolve we attached a copy of your invoices to each item to allow for easy access to records. We will also reconcile your accounts to provide you peace of mind knowing your books accurately represent how your business is performing.
