When you think of hiring a bookkeeper, you may be thinking that the value proposition is that they can get your transactions or data cleaned up. This is one of the benefits of working with a bookkeeper.
Many smaller businesses operate without accurate financial information. This leaves the owner with insufficient information to make business decisions. The owner just has to guess or rely on his or her impressions in operating the business. This can result in bad decisions. It can also result in unnecessary cost and missed opportunities.
Having accurate financial information is not the only benefit of working with a bookkeeper. There are many others benefits, including:
- Tips for structuring business transactions. Bookkeepers will often have an idea about how things ought to be structured. They gain this knowledge by working with and seeing transactions their clients have entered into over time.
- Access to other professionals in the local market. Bookkeepers will often have an established network of other professionals. They can often refer clients to these professionals when needed and do so with firsthand knowledge of the professionals track record.
- Identifying opportunities. Bookkeepers are often very familiar with their client’s finances. This vantage point gives the bookkeeper an opportunity to make recommendations that other professionals may not even know about.
These are but a few examples.
