It takes a special person to love bookkeeping, and 99 percent of the time, it’s not you.* (*Based on unscientific research; we totally made up this stat. But it seems irrefutable, right?)
That said, it’s likely safe to say that most of us haven’t been trained in reconciling and reporting unless your business is, in fact, accounting. You started your business to follow a passion – a passion that decidedly doesn’t include allocating expenses into categories and organizing receipts. But as your business grows, you’ll likely reach a point where the cost-benefit for hiring a virtual bookkeeper proves infinitely more effective than allowing it to occupy your working – or personal – hours.
We get it, though. You may still need some convincing to hire BELAY for your bookkeeping needs. After all, up until this point, you’ve been responsible for the comings and goings of every single dollar for your business – and you’re not quick to part with a single cent. We don’t mean to brag but … we know a thing or two about outsourcing. It’s kind of our thing. So when we’re asked the inevitable question, ‘Why hire a virtual bookkeeper instead of doing it myself?’ – boy, do we have answers.
So here are just a few reasons why you should hire a BELAY bookkeeper for your small business – and maybe leave you to wonder why you haven’t done it sooner.
