You typically set aside time to dive into invoices, payroll, and other financials. Yet think about just how often you stare at your computer screen or an actual pile of desktop financial folders, and think, I really should be meeting that new customer, or perhaps, I need to be out there selling.
Don’t let the financials stop you from focusing your time on doing what you love. You really can spend your time on those aspects of your business that you find inspiring—the core business needs—and still end up with a boost to your bottom line.
Sounds impossible, right? Well, let’s take a look at how outsourcing your bookkeeping rocks your success.
Deliver miles of smiles on customers’ faces
It’s true: outsourcing your bookkeeping can help widen your customers’ smiles in multiple ways—and we all know that happier customers are loyal customers.
- Here’s how: tear down financial obstacles that drive customers batty. Ask yourself whether your customer’s financial interface keeps them coming back for more or has them running for the hills.
- Does your system leave customers tripping over financial hurdles or talking about how easy it was to work with you?
Would your customers—and your business—benefit from a financial system that delivers miles of smiles along with its products and services?
And that’s not all. Going back to how you spend your time, ask yourself whether freeing up more of your time would allow you to build more customer excitement. If the answer is yes, don’t wait another minute! Outsource your bookkeeping and grab back the freedom to address the needs of your customers—what you do best.
Double happiness for suppliers and business partners
- had to apologize to suppliers or business partners as a result of lost invoices, late payments, or poorly tracked receipts and expenses?
- gone on archeological digs for missing financial data?
- spent hours matching up receipts to the right suppliers or business partners?
Even lenient business partners and suppliers eventually shy away from partners whose financial system creates an uphill climb for payment, or whose system is full of errors.
Offer double happiness to suppliers and partners: stop generating unneeded work for them (and yourself) with an outsourced bookkeeping system built by accounting professionals.
Compliance with ease
Outsourcing bookkeeping prevents those last-minute financial crises from cropping up. They are time-eaters and unnecessary distractions from how you should be spending your time.
One glance at our “How to Drive An Accountant Nuts!” page illustrates what drives your accountant nuts as well. Our guess is that last-minute, detailed financial work, on paper or online, drives you a bit nuts, too. After all, finances are not what you envisioned spending much time on when you started the business.
And besides, your time is much better spent on last-minute crises that might pop up with customers. Free up your time to resolve those issues instead of last-minute digging for financial documentation.
- The Internet-based goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) returns along with its eligible rebates are intended to make it easier to comply with Canada’s tax regulations by having you file directly to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) online.
- Does your current system offer friendly, online access to financial documents, or do you send out the posse to search for the data you need each time, such as payroll, sales, and allowable expenses?
We understand that prepping for the filing is an ongoing, year-round task, with all documents available online and continuously updated—so it’s all right there when you need it.
Stop losing opportunities!
Have you ever wondered, If I didn’t need to spend so much time on financials, I could really build my customer base or charge up my marketing?
The real question is, what is your time worth to your business? The answer? It depends.
Chances are your time is much more valuable in the areas of what inspired you to start the business in the first place—particularly drawing in more customers and making them smile. Your time likely is less valuable whenever it’s harder for you to maximize your time management and efficiency—as in accounting systems.
Your business deserves to get the most out of the time you spend and hard work you do to make it successful. Target your time to those tasks that only you can do best—and outsource your financial tasks to people who maximize their efficiency doing financial tasks.
Bookkeeping professionals have your back
Finally, we come to the ultimate reasons to outsource your bookkeeping—these professionals have your back in several ways.
- They get it! Bookkeeping is their expertise and core business, not something they need to do to support a different core business. They have the skills, the tools, and the time to focus solely on financials.
- They’re a team! Bookkeeping services rely on teamwork to bring together a range of expertise to get all your financials done expertly and on time. Teamwork trumps the one person you could hire to handle all your bookkeeping tasks, maximizing your ROI.
- They’re a great fit! Savvy bookkeeping services fit their tools and people to your business needs and budget. They also understand that when they free up your time to grow your business, their partnership with your business will need to grow, too. That’s a win-win all around.
