Why Do I Need a Bookkeeper?

One of the most popular questions asked is “Why do I need your services or a bookkeeper?”  Since we are launching our blog postings, this is probably the best place to start.  The primary reason that one should utilize a bookkeeping service, is we all want to put food on our tables.

One of the principle rules in running a successful business is to know your numbers.  At the simplest level, you need to know what is coming in and what is going out. You have to know if you are going to be able to pay your staff and cover the overhead costs.  Knowing these things help you keep food on your table and keep it on those who work for you.

For many, maintaining the books is also a challenge that pulls them away from working on their business and growing it.  Some people love numbers as we do, but not everyone does.  If you are one of those people that do not like playing the numbers game or figuring out what a chart of accounts is, utilizing Deitz Consulting services is a small investment that allows you to grow your business.

For many, when starting a new business, there is a belief that anything you can do yourself, you should.  On day one of starting a business, this is probably true.  BUT there comes a day when you have to stop seeing yourself as the only solution to every problem that arises.  In the growth of your business, you will reach a point where paying for services, frees up time and energy so that you can take your business to the next level.  There comes a point where you realize that an additional ten to fifteen hours a month could allow you to take your business to the next level, meet with a broader set of potential clients, or spend a little more quality time with your family.  You probably want to enjoy some of that food on the table too.

The situation described above is probably the primary reason that your small business would benefit from a bookkeeper.  Instead of spending all your time figuring out how to set up and maintain your books, we can do that, so that you have access to the information when you need it.  Instead of trying to find time to update and reconcile accounts, we can have all that information entered and just a phone call or email away, and we will have it done in a fraction of the time.

So why do you need a bookkeeper for your small business?  Because by investing in our services, you free up time and energy to work on the things that keep food on your (and your staff’s) table but never have to worry about not having the information you need, when you need it.
