Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at Furever Bookkeeping. This is part two of our three-part blog series about eight challenges that every small business owner will face. It’s important to start thinking about these challenges so that once it comes time to deal with them, you have some type of plan and know what options are available to you. If you didn’t read our first blog, you can view it here.
Many people become resistant to the idea of using or incorporating new technologies into their business. Business owners often become “set in their ways” when it comes to the way they use technology. And even though they might realize a need for new technology, they either don’t want to spend the money or they don’t want to put in the money to implement a new system. However, there are some great programs out there that can help you manage your business, whether it’s for scheduling, finances, or programs such as Skype that allow you to have long-distance business conferences. Chances are, if you have a need, there’s a program that can help you with it.
Hiring soon enough
Although, as the owner of a startup, you’re going to need to learn to juggle a lot of things like your finances, sales, customer relations and more. However, as you progress into a small business and beyond, you have to start relying on others to get these things done so that you can focus solely on the direction and goals of your company. One of the most important people you should hire as soon as possible is an in-house bookkeeper. The thing many business owners don’t realize is that bookkeeping isn’t just some small job that can be handled by anyone. And if you want to have an accurate picture of your company’s financial situation, you’re going to need to hire one as soon as possible. These are just some of the many benefits of hiring a certified bookkeeping rather than doing your own bookkeeping:
Accurate financial reports – You may have already tried creating financial reports on your own with no luck. However, with a professional bookkeeper, you won’t have to worry about previous mistakes that you or an employee made in your books. Many bookkeepers work retroactively to repair your books while creating up-to-date financial reports helping you plan for the future of your business.
Manage cash flows – Running a successful business is difficult enough, so why would you make it harder by managing all your company’s transactions by yourself? Without a reliable bookkeeper, you’ll might be overdue on payments or forget what payments are due to your company. This will inevitably lead to a loss in revenue and potential legal ramifications.
Tax planning – There’s no understating how important it is to know your financial situation when it comes to tax planning. Many companies don’t understand the importance of filing their tax returns accurately and on time every year. And if you don’t have that base understanding of your company’s annual revenue and overall financial situation, you risk running behind on your taxes.
