If you want to hire a bookkeeper but don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place!  If you’re not too familiar with the world of finance and accounting, looking for a good bookkeeper can seem confusing.  However, finding a good bookkeeper is actually very simple once you know what to look for!

Bookkeepers versus Accountants

Before we get to how you can easily hire a bookkeeper, let’s review a quick distinction:

There is a difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant.  While both create financial statements for businesses or individuals, bookkeepers are in charge of managing your company accounts and keeping a general ledger.  Bookkeepers can create financial statements, verify payments, prepare invoices, manage overdue accounts and more.

Accountants, on the other hand, can take the information that bookkeepers create and perform audits, prepare tax returns, run analyses and more.

What to Look for in a Bookkeeper

If you’re ready to hire a bookkeeper, you should keep one thing in mind: attention to detail

When you hire someone to keep your financial books in order, you don’t want to have to worry that they won’t be thorough.  A good bookkeeper will follow through and highlight every little thing that could be an issue.  While that may be annoying to some, it will be invaluable to your business in the long run because it means that your bookkeeper is committed to the success of your business.
