Problems accountants have with bookkeeping


  • You waste time and money by fixing mistakes made by incompetent bookkeepers. Which you could on charge, but then, client is unhappy about your fees.
  • Your reputation can be damaged because a bookkeeper you referred got it all wrong.
  • You may have used a great bookkeeper who is now unable to take on new clients because her books are full, and need a new bookkeeping to refer other clients too.
  • You may find yourself in the awkward situation where a client has a relative doing the bookkeeping, but they are doing a poor job, and then complain when you charge them to fix up the mess.
  • You may have considered bringing the bookkeeping in-house but it’s not your core business and you don’t have the time to manage it.
