Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need bookkeeping?
Having good bookkeeping will ensure you have efficient accounting systems. This helps you manage critical components of your business.

Why should I outsource bookkeeping?
Most small and medium business owners do not have the knowledge, time or ability to effectively perform their bookkeeping duties. Outsourcing a bookkeeper will provide you with the time required to focus on your businesses operations.

Can’t my accountant or data entry person do my bookkeeping for me?
Some accountants do offer bookkeeping services, but most prefer to focus on the higher end processes such as legal and tax management. They also charge considerably more than a bookkeeper.

Some data entry people are able to perform, but they are much more limited in what they are qualified to do.
