CHOOSING A GOOD BOOKEEPER, WHAT TO KNOW

By Opulent Accountants|Saturday Oct 28, 2017

The difference that a bookkeeper whether the right or the wrong one can make in your business cannot be overstated. Simply put they can make or break the entire business. The right choice of bookkeeper will make your business grow in the right direction. It is therefore important to know what to do to choose the right bookkeeper.

The first thing to do is to choose one who knows his onions. So not just make a choice based on convenience as regards your geographical location. Do not make proximity of your business to the accounting firm your first priority. Make sure whoever or whatever firm you choose to go with has the right skill and is motivated to help you succeed.

The million dollar question that comes next is how will you know if the person or the firm is as good as they claim since everyone would come to you to sell himself in a good light? Well, what you should do is to research the firm or individual (or both if you can). Like it or not the social media can be helpful with this sort of things. Going through one's Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn page can give you a great insight as to what they spend most of their time thinking and writing about. This, in turn, gives you knowledge about what their passions are. If you are convinced that he is someone who thrives and loves to succeed or achieve goals then they are worth considering. As for the firm you can check their websites, go for blogs or testimonies by clients, check how they are rated by those they have worked for in the past. This would direct you into making the best choice of your options.

Although there is no time that hiring cannot be done, it is highly advised that you do your hiring at the beginning of the financial year in order for your decision making to be proactive instead of reactive. Make sure that the person you have chosen to stick with is qualified and has BAS certification if they are practicing in Australia.

Ideally, your bookkeeper should have a vision of the issues that businesses go through such as cash flow, budgets, payables, and receivables etc. Accountants/tax agents should create ways for reducing the complexities and providing great financial planning and reporting to meet your present needs as well as managing the future goal shifts.
