Small business bookkeeping: why outsource?

Friday, February 17, 2017 - by Max Business

“Do what you do best… and outsource the rest!”

The above quote was given to companies by management consultant, educator, and author Peter Drucker (who’s known as the “founder of modern management”.)

Small business bookkeeping can be overwhelming. It’s OK if accounting and bookkeeping isn’t your strong suit – you’re not running a bookkeeping business, after all!

If you’ve found yourself wasting too much time, making too many errors, and suffering the consequences of untidy and disorderly books, you must strongly consider outsourcing your bookkeeping. Find out some great benefits you can enjoy almost immediately once you find a trusted outsourcing partner.

Small business bookkeeping

You’ll save time

“I’m wasting too much time on bookkeeping.”

Does that sentiment sound familiar? Many small business owners are struggling to keep all the balls in the air as they run their business. The simple reality is that if bookkeeping and accounting isn’t your strong suit, you will spend more time than is perhaps necessary per week keeping your books in order.

Think of this Benjamin Franklin quote next time you sit down to look at your books: “Lost time is never found again.”

Save time by outsourcing your bookkeeping.


Payroll and taxes will get done correctly

We don’t mean to sound dramatic (promise) – but one mistake on your payroll, lodgement, or tax return could have dreadful repercussions for your business. Fines are common from the ATO for “mistakes, omissions, and improper filings”.

Don’t take the risk – when it gets done by a professional bookkeeper, it gets done right. With Maximum Business Solutions, you’ve got expertise on your side!

Get it done right the first time, and you’ll save money. And time. Time is money, after all, and if you’re spending too much time time fixing errors made internally in the first place, you’ll fall into an ugly cycle of Bookkeeping Gone Wrong. Leave it to the pros and rest assured that it will get done correctly – every time!


Are we really built for multitasking?

Some people say no.

Multitasking takes a toll on productivity. Research from the American Psychological Association found that:

  • The mind and brain were not designed for heavy-duty multitasking
  • Some multitasking results in a 40% drop in productivity
  • Multitasking may involve more errors

Further, some studies say that multitasking can negatively impact memory and IQ, and make it harder for you to learn new things.

Don’t stress!

Bookkeeping is stressful. Managing accounts, recording spend, submitting BAS, and filing yearly tax returns can be overwhelming, especially if it’s not your strong suit.

You have great talents – it’s OK if bookkeeping isn’t one of them

Many entrepreneurs, business owners, and managers fall into the mindset of thinking that if something needs to be done, it needs to be done by him or herself. Not only can this result in burnout, it leaves us feeling flat when we finally concede that maybe we can’t do it all.

You’ve got enough to do running your business, liaising with clients, managing purchase orders, and supervising staff. Take bookkeeping off that ever-growing to-do list and enjoy the benefits of outsourcing bookkeeping to a talented team in Melbourne.
