We Provide A Great Bookkeeping Service For Your Company

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jun 30, 2012 9:13:00 AM

Ugh, bookkeeping. It's a pretty dreaded task, but, entirely necessary in order for a business to successfully run--no matter how big or small. But sometimes, smaller businesses don't have the luxury of a fleet (a gaggle?) of bookkeepers to keep everything in check, so all of that record keeping falls into the hands of the business owners while trying to juggle running that same business. Eventually, things tend to slip, bookkeeping mistakes are made and that can actually hurt a business drastically. But, it doesn't have to be like that.

Our Bookkeeping Services Will Allow Your Business To Grow

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jun 28, 2012 7:08:00 AM

Organization is probably the key to any healthy work environment--and hour-long lunches, but that is a different discussion. Keeping everything where it needs to be, and not having to ask "Where did that file go?" is probably one of the most important things when bookkeeping, but sometimes the amount of files, reports, and everything else an office accumulates is just too much to handle. So, when you're starting to feel the pressure from the mountain of paperwork that needs to be categorized, ask for some help from the pros here at Salt Lake City Bookkeeping.

Why should you care?

Did you know bookkeeping services can actually help your business grow? If you think that's just advertising speak, think again. When you're not worried about bookkeeping, and possibly losing something important, there's more time to focus on running a successful business. When you can safely say you know exactly where something is, then that's really a feat to celebrate over (with an hour-long lunch, right?). So, to keep everything in check, most businesses seek out a bookkeeping company to do all of that heavy work for them. Simple economics, right there.

In particular, Salt Lake City Bookkeeping can really help your business--especially small businesses who might need that extra push to help them really succeed. While it might seem normal to wear all sorts of hats while at work to cut corners, it's not exactly helpful in the long run. Think of bookkeeping services like that little magical office fairy that just makes everything work.

Why else should you invest in bookkeeping? Here's a list to look over:

  • SLC can help from simple bookkeeping to working with QuickBooks and making sure your financial records are all up to date, organized, and not lost in a completely different file.

  • If you're losing business and feel the pressure of keeping up with bookkeeping, it's probably time for a bookkeeper.

  • Already got one? Well, are they doing their job or wasting your time? Perhaps it's time for an upgrade.

There's no need to try and keep up with everything in the bookkeeping department when someone else can do the work for you. Focus on your business today and start making more money!
How long have you been doing bookkeeping on your own? Or, how do you do your bookkeeping?

Personal Bookkeeping; Is It Necessary?

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jun 16, 2012 8:23:00 AM

If personal bookkeeping was simply a matter of just paying the bills — a common belief shared by many people — everyone that hired a bookkeeper would either be broke or very regretful. At the end of the day (and at the end of the fiscal year) these professionals are responsible for managing the livelihood of your business or personal finances; essentially your cash flow.

How To Be The Best Small Business Bookkeeper

Posted by Matt Roberge on Apr 26, 2012 7:08:00 AM

A lot of small business owners like to find a third party small business bookkeeper to do their bookkeeping for them because not only does it save time but it also might be something the owner isn't knowledgeable in. Working as a small business bookkeeper is a responsibility that allows a business to run smoothly as well as efficiently. To be the best small business bookkeeper a few things to keep in mind include:


It's important to stay up to date on the latest and greatest software available. Long gone are the paper record books that shop owners used to keep. A good quality software program will help track expenses, track income, keep separate accounts in order and even keep a good record of how much is being spent on supplies and such.


The best bookkeeper will be knowledgeable on different aspects of the finance and banking industry. Not only do bookkeepers need to keep an accurate record of cash flow but they should also know where the best rates in the area are and should be able to understand monthly bank statements thoroughly. All credit card and bank statements should be reviewed each month to make sure no expenses or deposits were overlooked. Letting even one small expense fall through the cracks can be detrimental to the success of a small business.


Every business transaction should have some sort of invoice completed. Often times a contract is included as well. A successful small business bookkeeper will remain up to date with all of the incoming invoices and make sure that all agreements are being met. Staying consistent is important.

Back Up

Any knowledgeable bookkeeper knows that they should always have a back up of data. In an age where we rely on computers for our data storage, this leaves a lot of room for error. A problem with the hard drive or a power surge can wipe out a company's entire collection of data in a matter of seconds.

Being the best small business bookkeeper relies on a number of different factors that should all be practiced regularly in order to help a business run smoothly and be successful.
