Are You Missing Out on New Business Profits – or Even Losing Money – Because You’re Ignoring These Signs in Your Bookkeeping?
When running your business, you can often be so busy that a lot can get pushed to the side. Including bookkeeping. It’s understandable, but, while there are some things you can put off or not worry too much about, bookkeeping isn’t one of them.
Here’s some sure signs that your business need a bookkeeper. Now.
1. Your Accountant Has Filed for an Extension Every Year
There’s reasons accountants have to do this sometimes. No problem.
It IS a problem, however, if they do this year after year because your books – if you even have some version of them –, along with your other financial records, are incomplete, unordered and/or require some form of translation. That’s a Red Flag.
Handing over books that are confusing or incomplete can not only delay your filing, it can also cause errors that cost you money, including potential fines and interest.
It’s not always the accountant’s fault, it’s just what they had to work with wasn’t laid out the right way. Professional Bookkeeping makes that problem go away.
2. You Don’t Know Where Your Main Profits & Income are Coming From
Many have heard of the famous principle in business known as the 80/20 Rule. It applies in a lot of different ways. One big one is that 80% of your profits comes from 20% of your customers. That’s absolutely true.
So – Do you know who your 20% are?
If you don’t, you can’t start targeting those customers, or the kinds of customers, which are your fastest road to growing your business. Bookkeeping can zero in on those prime profit opportunities for you.
A good bookkeeper with financial analysis skills, and once your books are in order, can tell you who that 20% is, giving you a clear direction forward.
It’s the kind of information you’d give anything to know. Now you can.
