Virtual Accounting and Bookkeeping Services: Get the Most for Your Money and Protect Your Assets

By Amitaabh Saboo

If you are a small business owner who has not considered virtual bookkeeping  services, you need to take a step back and think about all that this set of  services has to offer. In fact, once you look at all the factors, you may find  that you cannot afford to tap into this cost effective, secure way of keeping  your company’s financials up to date.

Specialized Professionals Take the time to consider what you are doing  right now to keep your bookkeeping up to date. Are you coming home and managing  your books at night? Have you asked your sister-in-law to manage them because  she took a couple of accounting courses a few years ago? Have you hired an  “office manager” to handle your phones, communications, and your bookkeeping. If  one of these solutions sounds like the steps you have taken, you are taking  great risks with your company’s financial reports and assets.

By using virtual bookkeeping services, you would be tapping into a team of  specialized freelance professionals who understand what your company needs and  is able to manage your bookkeeping tasks thoroughly, accurately, and in a timely  manner. This is all they do; it is not that one thing they need to get done in a  day full of unrelated tasks. This means they have a solid grasp of the full  range of bookkeeping tasks that must be done to keep your company not only  afloat, but moving in the right direction.

Competitive Costs Virtual business bookkeeping services charge an hourly  fee for the work you need done; this may include managing your general ledger,  tracking expenses and revenue, completing weekly payroll, preparing month end  and year end reports, and preparing your documents for tax filing. The freelance  professionals will assess your needs, make recommendations, and take  responsibility for the accuracy and timeliness of their work. In the long run,  you will have saved money over hiring on your own, trying to work it in, or  squeezing it into the work of another employee, because you pay specifically for  the hours worked on your account and when your bookkeeping is done correctly, it  is financially advantageous to you.

Streamline your Business You most likely started your business because  you have a passion or a skill in relationship with the services or product you  offer. Even if that business is accounting, the best use of your time is to  focus on revenue generating activities. These tasks include building your client  base, building better relationships with the clients you have, and increasing  your inventory or providing the services you are selling. These are the  activities that help you make your business profitable and are the reasons you  started your company. By using virtual bookkeeping services, you can take this  crucial administrative task out of your day, ensuring it gets done, but  streamlining your own activities so that your time is spent working toward your  larger goals. For this reason, virtual bookkeeping services are just as  important to your overall business model as any other tool or supply you may  purchase.
