Why Are People Frustrated with Their Bookkeepers?

Let’s be honest, some of us online entrepreneurs have been too scared or too uninformed to look at our income and expense numbers with any kind of clarity. Isn’t that what bookkeepers are for?

Well, the answer is yes….and no!

Let me explain

In my experience it’s best to have three main financial roles covered in a successful business; a Bookkeeper, a Tax Accountant, and a Cash Flow Manager (hint hint….this is what we do in Profit for Keeps).

Let’s quickly discuss what these roles do:

– Bookkeeper – makes sure that every income and expense is recorded and categorized in an accounting software platform, preparing records for your tax accountant.  This role is about looking back over transactions that have already happened

– Tax Accountant – prepares and files your tax returns using information from your bookkeeper, determines exact tax payment amounts.  This role is about looking back over the past quarter/year.

– Cash Flow Manager – develops and maintains a spending plan, giving every dollar an intention and a powerful purpose. This role is about looking forward (visionary).

Can you guess which role I am empowering YOU to step into?  That’s right, you are going to become your own Cash Flow Manager!  You are the visionary,  my friend, and NO ONE cares more about the future of your business than you do.

Stay tuned for more on what being a Cash Flow Manager looks like for you but in this week’s episode of Profit for Joy TV, we are talking All. About. Bookkeepers.
