Do you need a bookkeeper?

If you are short for time, do not enjoy working with numbers or just do not know where to start, you are not alone. Having a bookkeeper can save you a lot of time even if you do think it is easy enough to do yourself.

A bookkeeper will help with day-to-day jobs within your business. Bookkeepers can ensure new payroll information is correct, send invoices out, chase payments, pay bills, track expenses and ensure that all expenses are recorded correctly. Bookkeepers can use software like Xero, Sage or QuickBooks or your own system and even Excel.

What will a bookkeeper do for your business?

A bookkeeper will help you to process paperwork and returns on time to ensure you are following rules and regulations. They may even help you save money in the long run not only by cutting the time of your bookkeeping routines but also by knowing what you can claim.

If you are unsure on the wording, then a bookkeeper can help you understand much faster than you having to research yourself.


Two pairs of eyes are better than one – a bookkeeper will help to double check your paperwork and figures to ensure that you are acting on accurate information.

If you use a bookkeeper you will always be able to understand where you stand financially and ensure you can make business decisions based on appropriate information that is up to date, accurate and relevant.

A bookkeeper will ensure you are always prepared for a HMRC audit as they will ensure you have a solid ‘paper trail’ of evidence that is easily accessible.

Do you need a bookkeeper or an accountant?

This comes down to the size of your business and a matter of personal preference. An accountant will look at the information a bookkeeper provides so you could argue that you need a bookkeeper first.

Smaller businesses often have 1 person to do all their bookkeeping and accounting whereas larger business often have a bookkeeper and an accountant as the quantity of work is much higher.
