How to find a perfect bookkeeper
Getting your business books done accurately and efficiently can remove a lot of business headaches, especially when it comes time to lodge all your quarterly tax paperwork on time.
Finding a great bookkeeper could be the one of the smartest business moves you ever make. Here are the top skills that great bookkeepers have.
· Attention to detail
It’s essential to have attention to detail when you’re preparing accurate financial records. They are meticulous and they avoid making costly mistakes.
· Time management skills
Great bookkeepers will hit all your lodgement deadlines on time, every time.
· Numerical skills
It almost goes without saying that great bookkeepers have great numerical skills. After all, they work with numbers all the time.
· Communication skills
Great bookkeepers aren’t just great with numbers. They have great communication skills as well and will always keep you in the loop with all the financial information you need to know. They will also explain it clearly, without the use of any accounting or financial jargon.
· Software skills
Great bookkeepers make use of automated software like Xero to help make managing your finances easier. They also help you and your team with implementing and using the software.
· Organisation skills
Great bookkeepers help you to organise all your financial records so you’ll always know where everything is.
