Tips For Finding The Right Bookkeeper Part Two
2
  • Here are some more tips and pointers to think
    about before you hire a bookkeeper, or any other
    tax professional to help you with your business
  • Using a specialized recruiter might be
    beneficial
  • Because finding the right bookkeeper for you and
    your business is so important, it might be
    quicker, easier and more beneficial all round for
    you to seek help from a recruiter who specializes
    in finding bookkeepers and accountants for
    businesses.

  • Look for someone with college level accounting
    qualifications as a minimum
  • The more educational qualifications a bookkeeper
    can have related to their profession, the better,
    and if youre not looking to hire a CPA (who will
    have more qualifications, knowledge and
    experience than a bookkeeper), then you should at
    least be looking to hire a bookkeeper who has
    completed college level accounting classes a
    degree in accounting is naturally preferable.
  • Look for an individual who can solve problems
  • A good bookkeeper is often one who is good at
    solving problems, and this is great news for your
    business.

  • While they are taking care of all the small, but
    important details related to your business, they
    can help it to grow and become more successful,
    and solve any problems that might be holding your
    business back.
  • Be clear on what you need from a bookkeeper
    before you hire one
  • Try to assess the needs of your business and its
    priorities before even thinking about hiring a
    bookkeeper. Understanding your own requirements
    is perhaps the only way to find the right
    professional for the job, so you need to think
    about the type of business you have, the number
    of transactions you handle every day, the
    accounting software that you use and so on.

5
  • Look for a proactive bookkeeper
  • Asking relevant questions is something that a
    good bookkeeper should do to be able to better
    understand your business. Doing so enables them
    to formulate and comprehend financial planning
    strategies, better ways of increasing revenue and
    managing cashflow, along with many other
    cost-effective ways to help you increase the
    business performance and growth of your company.

6
  • Find a bookkeeper who communicates effectively
  • A bookkeeper worth their salary is one who can of
    course crunch numbers, but who can also
    communicate well with you and other members of
    your business team to ensure that they get the
    information they need to complete their work and
    help your business function and thrive.
  • Be sure to hire a bookkeeper with good time
    management skills
  • Deadlines are a huge part of running a business,
    not only for owners but for tax professionals, so
    finding a bookkeeper who understands this and is
    reactive to deadlines, is essential.

7
  • Aside from meeting deadlines, time management in
    general should be important to tax professionals,
    and they should be prompt and time-conscious
    tardiness can end up costing your business money.
  • Hiring a bookkeeper or any other tax professional
    to help you run your business, should not be a
    process that you rush into, and researching your
    candidates to find one who you think you can
    establish a good, working relationship with, is
    extremely important.
