The importance of having a personalized bookkeeper

Having a personalized bookkeeper can provide valuable benefits to any business owner. A personalized bookkeeper can monitor and organize your business’s daily transactions. Not only that, they can also give you the reassurance and security you want to have about your company’s finances. Join us to learn more about the importance of having a personalized bookkeeper.

Four reasons having your own personalized bookkeeper can be a tremendous asset to you and your business.

Having a personalized bookkeeper can provide valuable benefits to any business owner. A personalized bookkeeper can monitor and organize your business’s daily transactions. Not only that, they can also give you the reassurance and security you want to have about your company’s finances.

Here are four benefits to having a personalized bookkeeper on your team:

Having a personalized bookkeeper means you have a specialist in the field

Most business owners did not start their company to do bookkeeping, but they often spend a large amount of their time managing their books. When you add a personalized bookkeeper to your team, you can throw aside the stress of bookkeeping. Your bookkeeper will use his or her knowledge and experience to keep your books organized and up to date.

A personalized bookkeeper gives you time to focus on other things

If you’re like many business owners, your time is spread thin over the many tasks that come with running a business. You likely don’t have sufficient time and consideration to devote to ensuring your company’s bookkeeping is being done effectively. Bookkeeping can be time-consuming, but with a personalized bookkeeper, that time no longer comes out of your own day.

A personalized bookkeeper gives you more time to handle the many important responsibilities of a business owner. It also frees up time so you can effectively separate time for work from other time to spend with family and pursue other endeavors outside of work.

Having a bookkeeper leaves you with more time to think strategically about your finances

Bookkeeping is an important task for any business, but it shouldn’t be something a business owner spends hours doing every week. Instead, business owners should be using that time to analyze their finances and think strategically about how to grow their business. Having a personalized bookkeeper allows business owners to have more time to think strategically about their finances.

Even if you’re the owner of a larger company and already have an in-house accounting team, outsourcing your bookkeeping can still add value to your company. It will allow your accounting team to focus their efforts on other places than just the books. Read our blog post on how outsourced bookkeeping can amplify your in-house accounting team to learn more.  

Your bookkeeper will be your second set of eyes

Personalized bookkeepers act as a second set of eyes to monitor your books. They grow accustomed to your business’s spending habits and can learn to recognize suspicious behavior on your accounts. In the past, our bookkeepers at KPMG Spark have detected cases of fraud and reported them back to their clients. With a personalized bookkeeper, you can have the reassurance and confidence that your books are in good hands.

At KPMG Spark, our team of bookkeepers is eager to start helping you with your bookkeeping. They provide valuable knowledge and experience, give you more time to focus on other vital aspects of your business and life, allow you to think more strategically about your finances, and act as your second set of eyes. They are also available during all business hours to answer any questions you might have and provide insights into your books.

In addition to a personalized bookkeeper, clients and KPMG Spark enjoy all the benefits of managed accounting, which is a new way of looking at the accounting function of your business. We use a cloud-based information software that acts as your portal to all your managed accounting information services, including communications to your KPMG Spark accountants and a dashboard of all your current financials. Your financials are kept up-to-date by KPMG Spark’s automation technology which connects to all of your accounts.
