If you’re like most business owners, your knowledge and expertise doesn’t include bookkeeping. Crunching numbers and keeping track of accounts may not be the most exciting thing about running your business, but learning to do it efficiently despite your lack of experience is key to it. Fortunately, solutions like QuickBooks and QuickBooks online have helped businesses like yours thrive with professional-grade bookkeeping boiled down into a single, easy to understand platform. However, having QuickBooks doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the help of a bookkeeping professional, especially when it comes to getting the most out of your platform.
You’re new to the whole bookkeeping thing
If you’re just starting your own business, or if changing markets and the economy have forced you to take on the role of your business’ bookkeeper, then you might be new to the whole QuickBooks thing to begin with. This is one of the most important times to consider investing in third-party expertise. Setting up your QuickBooks isn’t always as easy as it seems at first, and any mistake now can have resounding consequences on your bookkeeping performance in the future. Save time and ensure your business’ efficiency by starting off your bookkeeping journey on the right foot – with help from a pro.
You’ve used it a while, and now it’s slowing down
Even after having used QuickBooks for years, many business owners are still learning new things, shortcuts and tricks that make their bookkeeping processes much more efficient. Hiring a QuickBooks pro will help you learn more of the system’s idiosyncrasies, and how to adapt them to your business’ bookkeeping needs, a lot faster. More importantly, you may need an expert’s help if your QuickBooks platform starts to slow down, produce more errors, make reconciling accounts more difficult, or shows other signs of needing a completely system cleanup.

Customization is the next level of value that QuickBooks and QuickBooks Online provides your business. Once you’ve mastered the basics and are adept at keeping your business’ books, you can take efficiency leaps further by learning how to customize and automate various options to streamline your specific bookkeeping processes.
