Why You Should Hire a Bookkeeper
You may be asking yourself why you should hire a bookkeeper. Well, between travelling, keeping your business going forward, putting out daily fires and staying balanced, something is most likely going to get left out along the way. Often, that ends up being bills that need to get paid. You don’t want your credit impacted by late or forgotten payments. With Always Bookkeeping in charge we will give you the confidence that everything has been handled on time and we will help you make business decisions in a timely manner so that your business can grow!
Fixed Monthly Fees
At Always Bookkeeping, we believe that our clients should be able to come to us in time of need without the worry of higher fees. In fact, we want you to come to us for guidance when it comes to understanding your financial statements and other business needs. We find that charging hourly is counterproductive and adds another layer of barrier in communication between our bookkeeping professionals and entrepreneurs. Also, the more information you provide us, the less likely that there will be errors resulting from miscommunication. The longer our clients stay in business, the longer we stay in business.
On our end, we developed our systems to ensure efficiency and keep our costs low. Our combined experience in a public accounting firm also provides the skills that enable us to make effective decisions more efficiently. We charge our clients on the first day of every month, so you don’t have to worry about hidden charges and surprise bills. At Always Bookkeeping, you can set it and forget it!

At Always Bookkeeping we are a team that works together! Although you may believe you have a good idea about the state of your business, it always helps to have another set of eyes on this. At Always Bookkeeping, we will put your financials in order and run reports showing you how your business is doing each month, where the funds are going each month, and how your efforts are paying off (or might need to be improved upon). Our team of professionals are familiar with each of our clients which allows continuity in your business and lessens the chance of a break in service if one of our team is unavailable. At Always Bookkeeping we are always ready to give you a new perspective!
Manual data entry is more prone to human error. As such, we have picked and familiarized ourselves with the sophisticated software to ensure that your data is as up to date and as accurate as possible.
At Always Bookkeeping, we use Intuit’s QuickBooks Online to ensure you can access your reports anywhere you want. In addition, QuickBooks can now connect directly to your bank and credit card accounts which allow us to enter the transactions as soon as they hit the bank. We also use Hubdoc to store digital receipts online and download the bank statements directly from your financial institutions. Our reliance on our clients to provide data is significantly decreased. Our clients can now dedicate their precious time to growing their businesses and avoid mundane recordkeeping tasks. The best part is you don’t have to pay for this top-notch software – the cost is included in our low monthly fee!
At Always bookkeeping, we are also familiar with payroll and even industry-specific software. We are trained to use software that helps our client with project management and digital timesheets with GPS tracking.
Scheduled Biweekly Communication
Don’t be left wondering about the status of your reports due to your bookkeeper disappearing after the contract has been signed! At Always Bookkeeping, we make sure to give you biweekly updates on your financial reports and answer your questions regularly. You get a set of interim financial statements every two weeks. Biweekly reports and reconciliations help our clients monitor their cash flow and ensure that funds are available for payroll and bill payments. If you need help with your payroll, we will provide you with employee paystubs and even guide you on your payroll remittances every two weeks. We are also able to prepare and file employee T4s for you at the end of each year. Keep your suppliers happy and maintain good relationships with your employees by having control of your cash flow through the help of our professionals at Always Bookkeeping.
