Most business owners cringe when they think of year end bookkeeping.  Maybe they had a rough time closing their books in years past and maybe they feel it's the only way.  Well, they shouldn't.  Year end bookkeeping should be a breeze, especially if your books are handled in a timely manner throughout the year.  Do you want to not worry about the year as it closes and focus on what's in store for your upcoming business year?  Do you want to spend the holidays celebrating with your family and not stress about your business?  Here's how:

Cut Your Bookkeeping Bill In Half....Or More!

Posted by Matt Roberge on Mar 24, 2011 10:13:00 AM

Many small business owners pay for a full time bookkeeper even though they may not need one.  I think that many business owners feel that they need a full time bookkeeper.  I think some of the reason may be a power trip and others honestly think that a full time person is necessary to keep up on the bookkeeping.  In my experience many small businesses can keep up on their bookkeeping in less than 8 hours per week.  In many cases the job will only take 10-15 hours per month.  I feel that a good full time bookkeeper will cost a business $30,000 - $50,000 per year depending on a number of factors.  What if I told you that you can get an excellent part-time bookkeeper for $5,000 - $15,000 per year just by outsourcing your bookkeeping?  Would you be interested?  If so then read on and I will tell you how.

Do It Yourself Bookkeeping Guide

Posted by Matt Roberge on Feb 12, 2011 10:16:00 AM

As a small business bookkeeper I deal with all sorts of businesses and different types of business owners.  That is what makes my job interesting and fun.  Typically when a new business owner starts out they either can’t afford a bookkeeper or think they can do the bookkeeping on their own.  I DO think that it is a good idea for a business owner to do the bookkeeping in the early stages of the business so that they understand the financial aspect of their business.  This will prove invaluable when analyzing your financial reports later on in the life of the business.  Usually once a business owner gets overwhelmed by their bookkeeping I get a call; and more often than not the books are a mess.  So to help out these owners and hopefully help myself I would like to offer six simple steps to keep your business financials organized.
