Accurate Bookkeeping and Accounting

If you are like most small business owners, before you launched your company, you spent a lot of time planning how to establish and grow it. What you probably did not plan for is the amount of time and energy that must be given to the important tasks of bookkeeping and accounting.

You planned to be a business owner, not an accountant. Whenever you sit down to do your own books, you lose valuable time. This is time that could be used to build your business, meet with customers or even spent with your family.

I offer a less stressful and more cost effective alternative to in-house accounting. Allow me to assume all the bookkeeping and accounting responsibilities for your organization, or utilize my services on a temporary basis in the case of illness or turnover in your accounting department.

Differences between Bookkeeping and Accounting

Bookkeeping and accounting are two functions which are extremely important for every business organization. In the simplest of terms, bookkeeping is responsible for the recording of financial transactions whereas accounting is responsible for interpreting, classifying, analyzing, reporting, and summarizing the financial data.

Many small businesses in early stages are primarily concerned with compliance – paying bills, getting paid, recording transactions, ensuring payroll accuracy and following state and federal regulations. At some point, your business will cross a threshold and you’ll begin to place more emphasis on the need for timely, accurate financial reports and intelligence. This is when you’ll need more advanced bookkeeping, accrual based accounting and management or managerial accounting to help you make data-driven decisions.

Why Outsource?

Hiring a professional bookkeeper is one of the few places in business where spending money can save you money. My outsourced bookkeeping services are customizable to meet your needs and can be provided a la carte, or on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual basis.

Updating your accounts on a regular basis will assist your company with the ability to manage your finances more effectively. Losing track of your incoming and outgoing transactions can lead to overpayment, unnecessary service charges, overlooked reimbursable expenses and non-collection of payment for products or services. This can cost you thousands of dollars every year.

Gates Bookkeeping & Accounting has over 20 years of direct bookkeeping and accounting experience. This means that I can do your books faster, more efficiently and more accurately than you can. Do not waste your time doing something that will take you away from what you do best. Working with me gives you the opportunity to focus on your business.

Hiring an outsourced bookkeeper connects you with a professional who can work with you to meet your business goals. An outsourced bookkeeper also lowers your overhead by saving you the expense of office space, equipment, software and salaries.

You pay only for what you need, and only when you need it.

Money savings at tax time from accurate bookkeeping and appropriate tax designations of company income and expenditures.

Peace of mind that a bookkeeping expert, who stays abreast of the latest guidelines and news, is handling your books, creating your reports and preparing your tax-related materials for your accountant.
