Quickbooks: The Answer to Your Bookkeeping Fears
How are you currently managing bookkeeping for your small business? Paper and filing folders? Excel spreadsheets? Better yet, are you working off of a pile of receipts by tax time?
Bookkeeping is one of the biggest headaches any small business owner faces, because most are also doing a majority of the hands-on work for the company. If you’re working hard all day on a project, do you really want to head back to the office afterwards? Of course not. No one does!
That’s why so many small business owners are terrified of tax season. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with finances, payroll, deductions, purchases, sales, and income while you’re working ten hour days. You started a business because you are passionate about (and great at) what you do. You probably didn’t expect the additional responsibility of becoming your own accountant and auditor, and you likely don’t want it.
