How To Do Bookkeeping For Your Small Business

Owning and operating a successful small business is complicated. As every business owner knows well, there is a seemingly endless number of tasks that must be accomplished. Bookkeeping is one of those tedious but important jobs that has to get done. In doing bookkeeping for your small business, you must:

  1. Create and understand the proper business accounts;
  2. Select a bookkeeping/accounting method;
  3. Carefully record your financial transactions;
  4. Balance the books on a regular basis;
  5. Prepare and analyze financial reports; and
  6. Stay consistent by sticking to a schedule.

Proper bookkeeping is essential to the long-term financial success of your company. Even if you are fully comfortable doing the books, it can eat up a ton of your time. At Williams Accounting & Consulting, we provide reliable, cost-effective bookkeeping for small businesses in Atlanta.

Why Small Businesses Can Benefit from Professional Bookkeeping Services

A professional bookkeeper can make an enormous difference for your business. Not only will it free up your precious time, but you can rest much easier knowing that your financial accounts have been handled the right way. Here are some of the primary problems reported by small business owners who do not have a dedicated bookkeeper or accountant: 

  • Lack of Structured Bookkeeping System: Many small businesses lack a structured bookkeeping system. This can create serious problems for a company—especially as your business grows and expands. You do not need to spend your time becoming a bookkeeping expert. If you are doing everything by hand or with a basic spreadsheet, you can use bookkeeping help.
  • Missing Documents or Records: Without professional bookkeeping and/or accounting, many small business owners have trouble tracking down all relevant financial documents and records. Getting everything together can quickly feel like a herculean task. An Atlanta, GA small business bookkeeper will keep your information organized.
  • Getting Overwhelmed or Falling Behind: When business owners get busy, it is easy to fall behind on a task like bookkeeping. According to a 2020 survey from Gallup, stress and worry is rising sharply amongst small business owners during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you already feel like your small business is behind on bookkeeping, now is a great time to get started.
