As it’s Global Bookkeeping Week we’ve put together a list of reasons why bookkeepers are wonderful!
They have the patience of a Saint
As well as doing hours of careful data entry they also have the patience to spend time troubleshooting problems. This is a job for someone with serious patience!
2. They have a fantastic memory
Often bookkeepers have to remember passwords, usernames, helpline numbers, tax codes and much more. Without that elephant memory, all would be lost.
3. They do the things that business owners don’t want to
Whether it’s VAT returns, creating invoices or upgrading your software they are there on hand to help. They handle an array of tasks and do it with perfect precision. We salute you!
4. They handle scary words
Tax man, HMRC, debits and credits; you name it, they know it. No longer will financial lingo instill fear in the hearts of business owners. Bookkeepers are the slayer of confusing terms and financial mumbo jumbo.
5. They take away stress
Bookkeepers love being a human super-computer for day-to-day finances. They love to organise budgets, do payrolls and collect debts. They are like one giant calculator. This enables businesses to sit back and relax.
6. They give business owners more time to do what they love
By handling all those pesky tasks they enable business owners time for that game of golf or a Sunday stroll. No longer must Directors spend their Saturday night stuck in paperwork prison.
So remember to give your bookkeeper a big thank you this week! If you don’t have a bookkeeper don’t panic! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch with your super hero.
