Why Choose Professional Bookkeeping Services
We understand that most small business owners choose to do their own bookkeeping, thinking it saves money. However, when you consider the benefits of outsourcing, you’ll find it’s a much smarter long-term choice.
Reading “How to” blogs and buying accounting software isn’t a replacement for working with an experienced bookkeeper. We can ensure your financial records are accurate which will help you plan for the future as well as save you time and money trying to fix costly errors.
We know that bookkeeping is a time-consuming task, especially when it’s not something you’re experienced in. Outsourcing this task to a professional saves you hours of work each month that you can spend on growing your business.

When your financial records are in order and you’re receiving accurate financial reports each month, you’ll have a better understanding of your financial status along with financial trends in your business. You can use this information to organize your budget and understand your finances more closely.
Plan for a Smart Financial Future

As a business owner, you should make it a daily habit to log expenses and payments. Or, you can opt to outsource bookkeeping duties to our bookkeepers in Raleigh and Durham. We will gladly help manage your expenditures, payments, and payroll, so you can focus on running your business.
Do I need to keep my personal and business expenses separate?
Yes. Even if you alone own and operate your business with no one else in your company, you should have separate personal and business bank accounts. Paying for your business expenses separately will make it easier to optimize your tax filing and to make better fiscal decisions for yourself and your business.
What records should I keep?
Your financial records will help you, and us, manage deductions and projections. According to the IRS, you should keep a balance sheet and your income statement. A balance sheet consists of your business’ income and expenses. The income statement deals with assets, liabilities, and equities in business. It’s also wise to keep track of your deductibles, sources of income, and basis in the property.
