Bookkeeping is the recording of all financial transactions undertaken by an individual or business.
As an owner of a business, your books and financial statements represent a score sheet which tells you how you are progressing, as well as being an early warning system which lets you know when and why the business may be going amiss.
One of the greatest mistakes made by owners of small businesses is not keeping good financial records and thus making inappropriate or poor business decisions based on inadequate or incorrect information. Whether starting up for the first time or running an established business, bookkeeping is a vital part of the management process.

Lloyds TSB Quote
"Outsourcing your book-keeping can free up valuable time and save you money, allowing you to grow your business without hiring more people. Personal compatibility - your book-keeper/accountant needs to be trustworthy and honest, because they will be dealing with your business's financial information. Location - do you want them to work on-site or remotely? While most work can be done remotely, the ability to arrange a face-to-face meeting is an advantage."
