What size of business benefits from Outsourced Bookkeeping services?
Small and medium sized businesses can benefit from our bookkeeping services. Like you, we understand the difficulties of running a small business, and that's why we specialize in small businesses and entrepreneurs.
How can outsourcing do better work and cost less?
Bookkeeping is our business. We assign duties to our staff best skilled to accomplish the task. We leverage economies of scale. Finally, we have developed systems and procedures for our staff rather than individual approaches for each client.
What kind of Communication Options is available to me?
Our staff is available to you via E-mail, Chat or Phone for any questions or clarifications.
What about security? Can other people access my data?
Right now if you are like most of us, your accounting records are in an unlocked file cabinet or worse sitting on someone?s desk. We go to great lengths when it comes to security measures. We use the same level of 128-bit encryption that a major bank, such as CitiBank and Wells Fargo and the IRS use to access and process information. It is secure and it is dependable. For the first time you can be assured that you and only you are privy to your most important data.
Won?t I lose control if the books are done by an outside service?
Like most business owners you are probably out of control right now with inaccurate accounting data or staff that leave.
I have an accounting package already running on my computer and I would like to maintain my accounts there only. How can you handle it?
Thats precisely what we can do. We can login to your computer and do all bookkeeping entries from scanned documents that are stored there. So, the next day morning you have the latest state of accounts available in your computer when you open the updated accounts file.
What software can I use?
We work with a variety of software packages such as QuickBooks®, Simply Accounting®, and Peachtree®. There are also several internet-based accounting packages, such as ePeachtree®, NetLedger® and QuickBooks® for the Web.
Do I have to leave my current accountant?
Of course not. We are offering to take away your bookkeeping headaches. Balanced Books does not prepare income tax returns; however, we do work closely with a Certified Public Accountant of your choice. We work in partnership with your CFO, Controller and CPA. Your current accountant will be grateful for accurate data that they can really use to help you build more wealth.
Does my accountant have access to my books?
Only with your express permission! By allowing your accountant to access your data, your accountant can review or change your data files. No more running back up diskettes to your accountant. This alone adds up to a huge savings in time and money.
Do I need to have some costly "high-end" computer in my office for you to work remotely?
No. The computer that you use now for your regular work will do just fine. You don't need to invest on any additional equipment.
