Bookkeeping & Payroll
When a business owner begins a business, it's because he/she is passionate about a product
or service and believes they can have a successful business - doing what they really love!
Unfortunately, the complexity of all the reporting and record-keeping aspects of owning a
business often dominates owners’ time, leaving them unable to do the things that made them
want their own businesses. Some may just 'wing it' and worry about it when the year ends.
Others will overpay for CPA services instead of opting for a bookkeeper, who will charge
much less for the same services.
Studies show the overwhelming majority of small and micro-businesses fail within the first
3 years. Many times businesses fail because they have not kept accurate and up-to-date
financial records to understand their financial position and manage their bottom-line.
With all the great financial software, it would seem that small business owners have a
wealth of resources at their disposal for handling their financial records. Unfortunately,
those software programs are potentially dangerous to someone who does not understand basic
principles of accounting. "Garbage in—garbage out" certainly applies in many of these cases.
