Boost Your Small Business Finances by Outsourcing Your Bookkeeping to an Expert

by | May 11, 2022

Small business entrepreneurs like you often start out doing business all on their own. That means you are your own salesperson, marketer, bookkeeper, and much more. Eventually, as your business starts to grow, it becomes more and more difficult to do it all yourself. Especially when doing your own bookkeeping is getting in the way of other business activities, it might be time to find an expert.

Letting go of this responsibility can be tricky. You have your own processes, and bringing someone new into the mix can feel uncomfortable. It’s your finances, after all! If your bookkeeping isn’t done well, your business will suffer. Thankfully, many talented, trustworthy bookkeepers are excited to work with growing small businesses just like yours. And many of them are on our VaVa Virtual team! Outsourcing your bookkeeping to an expert will benefit many areas of your business and help you grow.


Optimize with Expertise

As a small business owner, you’re an expert in your industry and how to run your business. Most likely, you’re not also an expert in bookkeeping! You haven’t spent years of your life managing the finances of small businesses in a variety of industries. You’re probably not up-to-date on the best bookkeeping practices or how to optimize your own processes. That means that when you bring an expert bookkeeper on board, your business will experience an upgrade.

An experienced bookkeeper will be able to carry out all of your bookkeeping activities while ensuring that your processes make the most sense. They’ll be able to clean up your filing and optimize your workflows. They’ll be able to create helpful reports and swiftly provide data so you can make the best decisions for your business.


Scale Your Books with Your Business

Outsourcing your bookkeeping will make it easier for you to scale your bookkeeping function as your business grows. If you’re in the early stages of your business, you might only need a few weekly hours of bookkeeping activities. As time goes on and your business grows, your bookkeeping process might become more complex and time-intensive. If your bookkeeping is already outsourced, you’ll be able to scale up quickly by either increasing the time of your existing bookkeeper or bringing on additional support.


Get the Information You Need When You Need It

Your bookkeeper’s role will expand beyond day-to-day or weekly activities. They will be able to generate financial reports that will help you make better business decisions quickly. They can also provide advice or play out different scenarios with you so you can help build a more stable future for your business. Hopefully, your bookkeeper will be experienced in your industry and can help you understand how different decisions will impact your business long term.

Your bookkeeper can also help you prepare for taxes. Not only will they be implementing the proper procedures throughout the year, but they will also organize and prepare all the documentation you need to get your taxes done fast and accurately.


More Time to Do What You Love

DIY bookkeeping can work when you first start out as a business, but as your business grows, you’ll find that the time you spend handling your own bookkeeping can be better spent helping your business grow. You didn’t become an entrepreneur so you could spend all your time doing bookkeeping! You became an entrepreneur because you love your business. Outsourcing your bookkeeping will allow you to spend more of your time doing the work that really inspires you.

With the financial aspect of your business in good hands, you can refocus your attention on implementing your growth strategy or working on the areas of your business that you love the most. You might even find a work/life balance that works better for you. All the while, you will be supported by an expert that has your business’s best financial interests at heart.
