Small business owners hold their business very close to their heart. With a strong entrepreneurial spirit, they often feel they should be able to – or need to – handle every business task. While this is understandable, it's not very realistic.
Running a business takes tremendous time and commitment. As a business owner, it's easy to spend several hours a week keeping your books up-to-date. The hours spent on bookkeeping add up quickly and take away from time that could be spent growing business. A recent article on Financial Web, gives four good reasons to outsource your bookkeeping:
1.) Opportunity Cost
3.) Conflict of Interest
4.) Outsourcing Ease
While I agree with all of these reasons, I noticed that they missed an important one:
5.) Opportunity for Growth!
One of the goals for small businesses is GROWTH. Right now you might be able to handle your business' bookkeeping, but that won't always be the case. As business grows, expands, or adds more employees, bookkeeping and payroll become more complex and time-consuming. By outsourcing these tasks to a bookkeeper, you'll be free to focus your time on your expertise and growing your business.
