Accounting is a vast subject and it’s no surprise that it’s often one of the toughest elements of running a small business. However, it is one of the most important elements of your business, which is why it’s vital that you take advantage of as many resources as possible. If you’re like many small business owners, you’ve likely considered hiring an assistant to help you with your accounting or bookkeeping.
Although both will assist you with the financial aspects of your small business, it’s important to know the differences between bookkeepers and accountants so you can understand which will provide you with the assistance you need.
Bookkeeping and accounting involve much more than these simple tasks and it’s clear to see that both bookkeeping and accounting roles are necessary for any small business owner who wants to grow their business. However, the absence of these services could cause your small business to undergo severe financial trouble. From incorrectly balancing your books to mistakenly reporting inaccurate tax records, it’s quite easy for a small business owner with limited accounting or bookkeeping experience to make mistakes.
Even though QuickBooks claims to be an out-of-the-box accounting solution, there are actually many easy ways that you can make crucial mistakes. By enlisting the help of bookkeeping and accounting services to help you manage your QuickBooks, you can avoid many of these common SNAFUs. Some of the signs that you may need professional accounting or bookkeeping assistance with your QuickBooks include being bogged down by too many tedious tasks, the presence of frequent accounting errors, concerns from customers or suppliers regarding mistakes, and simply not knowing how you can evolve your small business to reach your financial goals.
