For many small businesses a part time bookkeeper can be the solution to your company's accounting
problems. A qualified bookkeeper can make your business run much more smoothly and take the burden off the owner or the office manager trying to do it all.
For many small businesses hiring a full time bookkeeper just does not make sense. There is not enough work to justify the cost and expense of hiring a full time bookkeeper. Yet at the same time someone has to take care of the books. When a small business relies on the business owner it takes time away from time-spent running the business and from time needed to grow the business. Owners of small businesses have other things to worry about and devote their time to than bookkeeping. After all you did not go into business to do accounting.
In many small businesses there is one employee who seems to be handling it all. This is never a good plan for a small business. The person wearing all the hats does not have the time and most likely not the training to handle the bookkeeping efficiently. Bookkeeping is not something to be handled when everything else is taken care of.
A part time bookkeeper can be the solution to the problem. Most likely neither the owner nor the office manager has the training and expertise to do the bookkeeping correctly. It is crucial to the business that the owner can make decisions based on accurate figures and can have confidence in those numbers when making plans for the future. When you have someone handling the books that is unsure or simply does not
know how to do it you have nothing reliable to base decision-making on.
Part time employees can be a valuable addition to your business. A small business bookkeeper can take the burden off not only the office manager but the business owner as well. There are many qualified people who are looking for part time work that could be a huge help to your business.
In the long term many small businesses can continue with a part time bookkeeper for years. A qualified and experienced bookkeeper can handle a lot of work in a part time position. How could a qualified part time bookkeeper help your business grow?
