When I talk to small business owners there always seems to be one niggling factor to owning their own business - the late nights trying to sort out their accounts. You may not have a partner to do it for you, or a sister-in-law that is an Accountant.
Business accounts are usually the last thing on the priority list, because let's face it, most business owners are experts in a completely different field. They spend their day with customers and/or staff; they are doing the 'fun' stuff. All of sudden it's the night before the GST is due and the reconciliations haven't been done. You have two months worth of coding to do which takes you a couple of hours, and then just when you finally think you've finished, the bank statement doesn't balance!
The solution is a weigh-up of your precious time and the cost to outsource someone to do it for you. Think of why you went into business in the first place? The lifestyle, wasn't it? Hiring a Bookkeeper is a cost-efficient way of staying on top of your business accounts and tax compliance.
So now you can read that book in bed or stay up late catching up on those recorded episodes that you've had no time to watch.
