74% of all small businesses in the US do not have a part-time or full-time accountant. Hiring these people is more like a luxury option because it can sap away your benefits while building up your income portfolio.
However, accounting and bookkeeping are still essential to small businesses, and you must decide on an alternative that will give you the same benefits while keeping neat accounting reports. Do not choose to do the job yourself because you are bound to make mistakes and miss out on crucial information; instead, hire remote, part-time bookkeepers that will handle a task on an assignment or contractual basis.
Tips to get the most out of our remote temporary accountant
Understand our role in your business
Outsourcing remote work like accounting was impossible a couple of years back, but technology has made it possible with many web-based programs. The service has opened a pathway for bookkeeping to offer many different kinds of services, and it is up to you to figure out what you want so you can hire the right one.
What is a part-time accountant? We are a full-time bookkeeping team that handles innovative accounting tasks, including taxation, budgeting, forecasting, and many more. You might consider hiring us if you need assistance with any of the following tasks:
- Overseeing the payable and receivable accounts
- Tracking monthly expenses
- Forecasting the expenses and cash flow
- Generating financial reports
- Reconciling accounts
Accounting technology allows all these different processes to take place remotely, and we would never need to have physical space in your office to make things possible. A small business owner can contact us to work on more than one accounting process, and we will provide you with an entire team to ensure everything runs smoothly. Remember that we can help you decide which services you need, so do not shy away from consulting with us for in-depth guidance.
Create a professional relationship
You have already established what you need from a bookkeeper, and now it is time to nurture a relationship that will produce the best results. You want the chosen one to understand your company culture and be fluent in the skills to produce the best results. Our accountants will tweak the service in any direction you want and go through the process as many times as necessary until we offer unique solutions to your business.
Work with a budget
The approach to choosing a budget always depends on what type of services you need. Remember that the more complex services will always warrant a higher fee, while the opposite is true. We have three tiers of accounting packages, and each one has different prices based on the services and skills included.
A small business with limited funds will still find immense value in the smallest package and could quickly scale up to the higher one when we help with different accounting services to improve the results.
