It’s Global Bookkeeping Week and we’d like to say a huge thank you to every one of our hard-working members. From those who have been with us for 15 years to those who have been with us a matter of days. You are a part of the COS family and we thank you for that. So in the spirit of teamwork, we wanted to share just some of the reasons why Bookkeepers should be celebrated this week.
Masters of Patience
When things are in a mess and deadlines are looming the last thing you can be is impatient. Your legs might be swimming underneath but your cool exterior shows that “you got this”. So here’s to all those who wait patiently for paperwork and who spends hours calmly counting away.
Sometimes there isn’t an easy way to work something out. It’s like solving a mystery and there are many challenges along the way. Without a logical brain all would be lost! Whether it’s looking for a pattern or matching things up: we need to celebrate the Sherlocks.
Without an organised system bookkeeping becomes chaos! With deadlines in the diary, businesses can’t afford to be late with submitting information. So here’s to those numbers being in the exact place at the exact time and adding up to the right amount.
Bookkeepers know that the same system and process won’t fit every business. Yes, many of the principles are the same but without adaptation, there would be madness. At one client they could be using Sage and at another, they could be on Xero. Here’s to the flexibility experts.
So let’s celebrate bookkeepers everywhere this week. Let’s raise a cup of tea and biscuit to all those who do a spiffing job. Here, here!
