What does a bookkeeper do?

Ah, the bookkeeper! The unsung hero of the small business world. You know, that person who's always crunching numbers and keeping track of finances so the rest of us don't have to. But what exactly does a bookkeeper do? Let's take a closer look, shall we?

First and foremost, a bookkeeper is the master of organization. They keep track of every little financial detail for their small business clients. From receipts to invoices to bank statements, they've got it all covered. They're like the Marie Kondo of the financial world - if it doesn't spark joy, it doesn't belong in the books!

But it's not all just shuffling papers and crunching numbers. A bookkeeper also has to be a bit of a detective. They're always on the lookout for discrepancies or errors in financial records. Think of them like Sherlock Holmes, but instead of solving crimes, they're solving financial mysteries.

And let's not forget about the most important part of a bookkeeper's job: making sure their clients don't go broke! They keep a watchful eye on the bottom line and provide the reports that help their clients make informed financial decisions.

But let's be real - the real reason small business owners hire bookkeepers is so they don't have to do the tedious financial work themselves. And who can blame them? Bookkeeping is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Luckily, bookkeepers are up for the challenge. They don't mind getting their hands dirty (figuratively speaking, of course) and digging into the nitty-gritty financial details.

So there you have it - the mysterious world of bookkeeping, revealed!

Next time your financials need organization and detective work to get rid of the errors, give us a call, its what we do!
