Does YOUR business need a bookkeeper?
You're a hard-working entrepreneur with a brilliant head for business. You love to make money but don't enjoy getting bogged down in the finer points of accounting. Chasing late payments and dealing with payroll is a time-drain for you and your team – time that you no longer have to spare.
Does this picture sound familiar? If so, you may be considering the possibility of outsourcing your company's bookkeeping to an external agency. Trusting your accounts or payroll to an 'outsider' might seem like a big leap, not to mention an extra financial investment. At AMR, we understand any reservations you may have. But as experts in our field, we know there are considerable benefits to making the switch, both in the long and short term. Here are five advantages you may wish to consider:
1. Work smarter
By outsourcing elements of your bookkeeping, you'll free up extra hours that can be ploughed directly into your business. Whether that's pitching for new clients, fulfilling contracts or taking time to source new retail stock, it's valuable time that can have a huge impact on the success of your company.
2. Super software
We have invested in all the latest bookkeeping software, including Sage and Xero. Depending on your business's requirements, we can set you up with the software and offer training into ongoing use of these programmes. Xero provides real time views of cash flows, accessed either by computer or by mobile devices. This allows you to keep in touch with your accounts whether you're in the office or on the move.
3. On-tap expertise
Our talented team has decades of experience to draw on. Every one of our bookkeepers undergoes annual Continual Professional Development training to keep up to date with changes in all legislation including VAT, PAYE, pensions and CIS. If you have a query, we're here to answer it – fast. We work closely with you and become an integral part of your business. Find out more about the AMR team here
4. Appearances matter
In the business world, reputation is all. Meetings with new clients, potential investors or partners - not to mention the bank manager – are never going to go well if you arrive with hurriedly-prepared or inaccurate records. Outsourcing to a highly-respected firm such as AMR will ensure everything is expertly prepared, giving you an edge on competitors, and the chance to impress in every meeting.
Regular and professional record-keeping is the best way to flag up errors, cash flow concerns or serious issues such as fraud. Catch a problem early enough, and it can be dealt with as a minor inconvenience rather than a catastrophe.
