Beyond Data Entry

It’s good you’ve invested in having someone (an employee or a contractor) dedicated to doing your routine entry of invoices and vendor payments. You’re too important to your business to do that stuff yourself.

Now that you aren’t seeing all the details, though, you might be finding it more difficult to make decisions about day-to-day operations and expenses.

Perhaps there’s another role you need to fill: someone to do your payroll, reconciliations and monthly financial statements. If you have a qualified, experienced person looking after these activities, they can help get your head out of the trees and help you see the forest… with valuable insight on how your business is doing. A good person in this role will notice concerning trends and bring them to your attention before they become a problem.

Where can you find such an experienced person? Ask me… or your accountant.
