The Old Way
- You enter your sales.
- Your bookkeeper takes your data file for a week each month to reconcile your bank (you can’t enter sales in this period)
- When you get your data file back, you enter a weeks worth of sales.
- You continue to enter sales for the next 3 months.
- Your bookkeeper takes your data file and then advises you there has been a 2nd data file created and you have entered all your sales for the month on the wrong data file!
- You re-enter all your sales on the correct data file and give it to the bookkeeper to take away for a week … etc
- Sounds familiar? It’s time to talk to us!

Our books are in better shape than they have ever been and we would recommend her services to anyone wanting a reliable and trustworthy bookkeeper."
