QuickBooks Help In Salt Lake City

Posted by Joe Mazur on Feb 8, 2013 7:00:00 AM

As a small business, you may not need a full time bookkeeper.  If you are a very small business owner, you may not even need a bookkeeper at all.  Northern Utah offers a variety of business opportunities and depending on your business' size, the perfect solution could just be QuickBooks help in Salt Lake City.  In the early stages of business growth, most CFOs, sales coaches, investors, etc. would suggest keeping costs as low as possible and work on growth.  Bootstrapping is a term you hear thrown around more and more these days and I couldn't agree more.  Keep costs to a minimum and put your head down and work. There are plenty of ways to do this; read a book, read a blog, or maybe ask for help.  Getting your bookkeeping system set up right the first time is much wiser and cheaper than waiting until it unravels and then working backwards to fix it.  QuickBooks is an easy program to use and usually the best option for the entrepreneur that's just getting started.  It's better than using Excel to track income and expenses and much more analytical than Quicken.

Outsource Your Bookkeeping Services To Us To Prevent Theft

Posted by Joe Mazur on Dec 24, 2012 7:55:00 AM

Not sure why, maybe I'm naive, but I'm always stunned when I hear of a bookkeeper or treasurer stealing money from the firm they are working for or volunteering for.  Without the proper checks and balances put in place, your bookkeeping system could be set up to allow for theft and pilferage, and it could be happening right in front of you.  In the past few weeks, I've come across a few different stories of businesses and non-profits getting taken for a ride.  One story came from my hometown in upstate New York and the other from where I currently reside, which is here in Utah.   I feel situations like these can be avoided if the proper time and effort is put into building a strong bookkeeping system and utilizing the checks and balances that are associated with this.  As a business owner or manager, you want to be able to whole heartedly trust the person managing your money and you want to be able to identify areas where money can disappear.  If you don't, then you might want to take the necessary steps in changing that.
