Why You Need a Bookkeeper

Posted On September 16, 2016

I wholeheartedly believe that the number one reason why you need a bookkeeper is most small business owners do not have the time, knowledge, or tools to effectively manage their business That’s why I wanted to give back to an industry that I have worked in for most of my professional career. I’m passionate about the numbers and I have much respect for the hard work that business owners including yourself put into making their dreams a reality.

It’s funny sometimes how things can come full circle in life. A perfect example of this is why Bookscaping was started. Back in the good old days of high school, I had 3 things; a coupe Honda Civic, a lawnmower (loaned to me by my parents), and lots of ambition. That is all I needed to start a small lawn care business and learn what it takes to manage a business. I can remember when I got my very first customer, I was so excited to be able to have something real that was mine.

Before I went over to my first job, I went over to Office Depot to pick up an invoice pad so I could fill it out and I remember looking at the “Payment Terms” section of the pad and thought to myself, what the heck is “Payment terms”?! Here I was, having my own small lawn care business and not knowing the first thing about accounting and finance.

You might be asking why am I telling you this story; well, fast-forward 10 + years, add on a degree in finance with a focus in accounting, working in corporate accounting, running the finances and operations of a big-data analytics startup company and you’ve got Bookscaping.

Fast Facts:

  1. In a study done in 2015 by Intuit (the makers of QuickBooks and TurboTax) found that over half (52%) of small businesses don’t use an accountant or a bookkeeper.

  2. How much time in hours have you put into maintaining your books over the past month? How much is that time worth?

  3. How has servicing your current clients been negatively affected by issues related to your financial records?

I’m proud to say that we only work with landscaping companies. Why? Because we get to learn about all of the inter-workings of the landscaping industry from a financial standpoint and we are able to take a proactive approach to ensure the success of your business.
