Here are some reasons why going online might make sense for you.
No need to find parking, child care or even leave your house. With the technology that currently exists you can meet your bookkeeper right at home using tools like Zoom or Google Hangouts.
A bookkeeper that is Virtual (Operates in the Cloud) is more likely to stay up to date with technology and be better able to take care of you and your unique business.
Virtual Bookkeepers are also paperless. That’s good for the environment, good for you and great for the budget. Some documents like tax returns can require up to 75 pages of paper. For EACH tax return. That’s a lot of paper for a document you aren’t likely to read. You also get to keep your original documents and you don’t have to worry about losing documents that your accountant gives you.
Tools like QuickBooks online are used by online accountants. Why is that important? Online accounting tools are able to get you better and more timely information. No more tracking your income separately on a spreadsheet because it take 3 months to get the bookkeeping done. Tools like automatic bank and payment feeds means that your information is current. Finally giving you the tools to actually run your business!
You can still contact your bookkeeper when you are travelling on business because it doesn’t matter anymore where you are. You can contact when you are on vacation too, but why would you want to?
