We have talked before about some of the benefits to outsourcing bookkeeping services to Remote Quality Bookkeeping, but sometimes, making that decision can be hard. So we thought that we would help answer some questions you may have when it comes to deciding whether or not to outsource these services. The following questions are common questions to ask yourself when you are thinking about hiring anyone.
How many hours a week will you need a bookkeeper?
This is extremely important if you are thinking about this debate in terms of money. Hiring an in-house bookkeeper to take care of your money can be expensive. If you are planning on needing them to be around 40 hours a week, that can run you 10’s of thousands of dollars in compensation. When you outsource bookkeeping services, you will pay pennies on the dollar compared to what you will pay an in-house bookkeeper.
Would you rather communicate face-to-face or through emails?
This could be a huge deal for some small business owners. Some people like to talk to others face to face because it eliminates the potential for miscommunication or misinterpretation. On the other hand, when you are communicating via email, you can make the time to send a letter at any time that is convenient to you. As a small business owner, you don’t have a lot of free time to sit and talk with your bookkeeper. Emails are quick and easy.
Can you make the time to sit with your bookkeeper?
This question relates to what we talked about in the last section. Time can be a huge factor when it comes to hiring an in-house bookkeeper or having remote bookkeeping services. Outsourced bookkeeping is great because we won’t need to seek you out for every question we have about a receipt or purchase.
