Dialogue is so important in what we do here at David Howard. There are many occasions when our conversation with small to medium business begins on the subject of bookkeeping. Before clients use our services, they want to know the best ways in which they can manage bookkeeping within their organisation, and what we can do to help. For this reason, we decided to put this blog together, featuring some typical questions which we answer for clients on the way bookkeeping should be done....
How Do I Fill My Bookkeeping Skills Gap?
Many of our clients report that they find it hard to employ bookkeeping staff within budget who can cover off all the skills areas which they need. In these cases, full time bookkeeping employees can be a money drain, and in some cases, perfectly competent staff are still found wanting. In these cases, we recommend outsourcing your bookkeeping to a specialist provider, so that you can benefit from the right people, with the right skills, working for the right amount of time.
Inaccurate Information Is Costing My Business Money, how Do I Prevent This?
In many cases, senior management bears the brunt of poor quality data which can result in a lengthy bookkeeping process which can cost organisations far more than they would like. This is another problem which can be solved by professional bookkeeping solutions which are designed to cut out errors.
Which Software Do You Recommend Using?
The bookkeeping solution which is most suitable for your business will come down to the nature of your organisation and the processes which you already have in place. David Howard works with you to design and implement the very best system for you, ensuring that you have the right level of reporting, enabling you to make better decisions. Not only do we provide training and continuous support, but we can also remotely access your system to ensure everything is running smoothly.
Is On Or Off-Site Bookkeeping The Best?
Again, that depends on you. There are advantages to both on and off-site bookkeeping services. The beauty of appointing a specialist provider such as David Howard is that we can offer you a combination of on and off-site bookkeeping which is tailored to your requirements.
