Bookkeeping Services - Let a Professional Handle Your Accounts

Many use bookkeeping services, especially if they have companies or organizations. Before using this sort of company, make sure it is reputable and follows all rules and guidelines.

Those who have bookkeeping companies help record the value, assets, liabilities, income and expenses in a ledger or journal. The individual will post entries debit and credit entries chronologically in the journal. Those who have companies or organizations usually need bookkeepers. Others decide to use individual or family bookkeepers to track the income and expenses of the family using a register.

Before, these professionals did their services using a paper and pen but now there is advance software which can help with bookkeeping. Many people either use a single entry or double entry system. A single entry system uses information found in the income and expense account while a double entry system forces the individual to post the entry twice as either a debit or a credit. An accountant on the other hand prepares the income state and balance sheet using information prepared by a bookkeeper.

There are also online booking companies, which have become very popular recently. Online bookkeeping allows your information to be kept and tabulated on the web. This will allow you to choose a bookkeeping company that does not necessarily live in your immediate area but somewhere else, as long as they have access to your paperwork and receipts regularly.

If you are a company who has a lot of mobile employees, they can scan and send receipts to the remote place and get reimbursed quickly. Also you if you have more than one office, online booking can be ideal. Most entries made are recorded and stored remotely and you can access the software anywhere in the world and check all of your entries.

If you decide to use bookkeeping services, ask your friends, professional peers or relatives if they have any recommendations. Before hiring anyone, make sure they have years of experience in the field and can provide you with references which you can call. Rates for bookkeepers can vary depending on the experience of the individual, the location of the business and the software used so make sure you use someone who is in your price range.

If you use an outside company to handle your accounts, you may save money in the end. If you are a small business, you do not need full time employees who handle your journals which mean you can save on payroll as well as overhead costs, which can free up your schedule and allow you to focus on important things instead of bookkeeping problems. You can allow professionals to handle your needs who can produce desired results efficiently and effectively.

If you choose to hire a company who specializes in bookkeeping, make sure you investigate them thoroughly to make sure they can meet your goals and expectations. Ultimately a good bookkeeping company can handle all of your bookkeeping needs and allow you time to focus on developing and running your business.

How to Maintain QuickBooks, Upgrade or Correct a Damaged File

Occasional damaged file components is not uncommon for QuickBooks Desktop. After all, a large database does require maintenance including making backups from INSIDE of QuickBooks. It is a common fallacy to believe that daily windows backups, though of course advisable, is sufficient for database maintenance.

Note – for many organizations, this means the “IT department” cannot do this maintenance because they are generally not provided a password to open the QuickBooks data file. A management team with insufficient knowledge of maintaining QuickBooks databases may therefore assume that Windows backups are sufficient, as they are with many flat files.

This guide touches on regular maintenance, preparation for software upgrades and if needed and is intended to help troubleshoot damaged files. Chronic or consistent damaged files however, is an indication of a deeper issue, such as a damaged installation of QuickBooks, network or system damage and/or problems with negative inventory or import utilities. This guide is intended to help troubleshoot a wide variety of corruption issues but is in no means comprehensive.

It’s important enough to note that all file activities that involve data manipulation need to be done in Single User Mode and ON THE LOCAL MACHINE. Never attempt to run rebuild or upgrade a company file “across” a network or on a remote desktop where the data file is not physically stored on the same machine where the rebuild or upgrade is being done. “Verify” is okay, because data is not actually being manipulated. You can temporarily circumvent potential network issues by moving the .QBW file to a local drive, performing the rebuild or upgrade, then moving it back. I say “move” because duplicate file names in duplicate locations is generally a bad idea.

Of course, if you have problems or concerns or just generally want this whole process done professionally, you can contact Turn Key Office and we will do it for you onsite or via remote access.

The Worst Cashflow Mistakes Small Business Owners Make

The worst cash flow mistakes a small business owner can make can be counted on one hand. They have one thing in common, and that's about failing to follow the money. They're about keeping your eye on the prize, and we go through them here, ending with advice about how to track your own company money using expense management software for small businesses...

Failing to think before you splurge. Great! You've started a business. You're on the road to fame and fortune, and now's the time to invest in an expensive suit and a new car, isn't it? No, in short, it isn't. This is exactly the time NOT to commit money - yours of the company's - to anything you don't need. So there's the first lesson. Understand the difference between 'want' and 'need'. To succeed in business you need a phone, but the Armani suit can wait...

Expecting the best. This is about your financial planning. Understand that you're not going to be a millionaire in the first year. On the contrary, you'll be doing well if you can afford to pay yourself anything like a salary in Year One. If you overestimate the number of units you can sell, or the clients you can get to come on board, then revenue will be lower than you predict, and you may find yourself overstretched with any finance package you've put in place.

Offering credit. Poor paying suppliers can cripple small businesses. If you're made to wait for payment, that's like offering them an interest-free loan, and you shouldn't do it. It's perfectly reasonable to ask for payment up front, so long as you're ready to honour your commitment. After all, you wouldn't expect the local supermarket to give you a month or more's credit on your grocery shop (though if you're a supplier to them, the boot would be on the other foot). In general, large organisations are slower payers, and also have complex internal procedures in place about how and when payments can be made. Better to work with smaller companies, where you have direct access to the person with the power to pay.

Being cash poor. If you've made careful and conservative cash flow forecasts in the early days of your business, everything's fine, so long as cash moves as you'd predicted. But what happens if it doesn't? If you have no cash cushion you could be in trouble. Try to have a couple of months-worth of cash in the bank so you could carry on if you had no income at all. It'll help you sleep easier, too.

Not making an unpaid finance assistant work for them. Bet that caught your attention didn't it? This is not about the kind of modern slavery that has people working for nothing, but it's about technology. It's about arming yourself with good quality business expense management software for small businesses and being disciplined in its use. In the early days of your business you need to be especially careful with money, because having little of it generally sharpens the focus in the need to be a good money manager. In later years, when you've earned a wedge, there's no reason to take your foot off the control pedal. Keep a tight rein on finance, and you'll be rewarded with better dividends in the future. Selection of the right small business expense management software will enable you to keep track of expenses very easily, but more importantly, it will allow you to interrogate the data, and show you how effectively you're managing spending and cashflow - and show where improvements can be made. And picking the right package means it'll offer excellent value for money, because the savings you make by using it are probably going to be more than the cost of investing in it in the first place.
