Keeping good financial records for the purposes of submitting a tax return, whether you are a individual or as a business or both, is required by law. Managing this yourself can be overwhelming and time consuming. A bookkeeper provides support and training or can take away the entire burden of it all. It's entirely up to you!
Bookkeepers are great value. They are considerably cheaper than Accountants and they are experts in managing your day-to-day finances. If you charge £30 an hour and a bookkeeper charges £20 per hour and they can do the same work in half the time that you can, why wouldn't you have a bookkeeper? It doesn't make sense to pay Accountancy fees for bookkeeping with fees typically ranging from £70 to £120 per hour.
You will find it much easier to make important business decisions if you have good financial record keeping. Knowing how much capital you can help you decide on matters like purchasing stock or hiring short term staff for example. If your records show you are running low on capital, you may need to take out a loan or arrange to invest some capital.
Not all Accountants are equal nor right for your business. You could also be spending a lot more than necessary choosing the wrong Accountant, especially if they do your bookkeeping in addition to your tax returns. We can help ask the right questions and negotiate better fees. We also work together behind the scenes with your chosen or existing Accountant to provide a full compliment of services you need.
