5 Bookkeeping Services Business Owners Should Expect , Chandler, Arizona

When it comes to hiring the right person to oversee bookkeeping, it’s worth the effort to do a little homework. Partner with the wrong company, and hard-earned money and time are lost. The good news is making a list of expectations for any bookkeeping services providers you’re considering hiring helps make the search much easier. 

As you begin your search for a company that provides bookkeeping services, look for the following five offerings:

  • Cash Flow Tracking: Align with a specialist who has extensive experience with cash flow management. They should know how to monitor payments, outstanding debts, and outgoing invoices. Seek out a bookkeeper who can also create detailed cash flow reports.
  • Industry Term Knowledge: All bookkeepers should also have a working knowledge of the five most common types of account categories: assets, equity, expenses, income, and liabilities. They  should also be familiar with other industry terminology typically used by bookkeepers.
  • bookkeeping servicesStrong Communication Skills: The ability to keep communication lines open is another key expectation. Because it’s your business, you want a member of the bookkeeping services team who can discuss concerns and answer questions. They should be readily accessible and respond in a timely manner in person, by phone, through email, or all of the above.
  • Computerized Bookkeeping: At the bare minimum, expect your bookkeeper to be computer literate. The best ones have experience with software programs designed to create monthly, quarterly, and annual reports on company finances.
  • Financial Statement Creation: Cash flow, balance sheet, and profit/loss financial statements should also be expected from bookkeepers. You should receive detailed statements each month that are simple to understand.
