Remote Book Keeping
If you are like most small business owners, you are probably spreading yourself pretty thin. On top of managing your business, you may also be playing the role of marketing specialist, receptionist, salesperson, and bookkeeper. Businesses always look for ways to reduce time spent on tasks, minimize their expenses, and increase their profitability.
So, how does remote bookkeeping work? Well, a company will grant a virtual bookkeeper with remote access to its financial documents and online bookkeeping software, such as QuickBooks or Xero. Online accounting software and mobile apps that come with them make it easier for business owners to scan or take a snapshot of receipts and invoices and immediately upload them to secure and shareable online folders. A virtual bookkeeper takes this data along with data that online software receives from bank accounts and credit cards and uses it to make daily entries and monthly reconciliations and reports. Reports are shared between the virtual bookkeeper and clients through the same secure and shared online folders. Remote bookkeepers can also pay your employees and pay recurring bills and invoices, among other tasks.
