Oftentimes, maintaining a full-time, in-house bookkeeper can be financially unsustainable for a small business. Of course, acting as your own bookkeeper may be too time-consuming for you to do and run your business effectively. If you need assistance, Huddleston Tax CPAs can provide high-quality, accurate bookkeeping services at reasonable rates. Plus, we offer QuickBooks consultations and services.
Simply put, bookkeeping is the process of recording and maintaining the financial transactions of your business. Transactions, travel expenses, your company’s sales, client dinners, employee hours and payroll are all covered by our bookkeepers.
Bookkeeping is not an easy task, particularly for a small business owner who is already juggling the myriad responsibilities that come from running a company. Given the demands of bookkeeping, outsourcing this task to a competent, reliable professional is often the most practical solution. Huddleston Tax CPAs is fully aware of how demanding bookkeeping can be, and this is a big reason why we’re very proud to offer top-quality bookkeeping services to our small business clients at affordable rates.
Bookkeeping Cleanup Services
A bookkeeping cleanup service is paramount to small businesses trying to improve cash flow and profitability. After all, if you’re currently enrolled in an automated software service, you can’t expect a machine to catch a sale that’s over-reported, duplicated, or when employees are being under or overpaid.
Computers are excellent tools, but it’s one of the many reasons companies continue to push for AI because machines will otherwise do as they’re told. If you’re not looking for errors, the machine won’t be either. The bookkeeping cleanup service evaluates all your costs, revenue, payroll, etc. Again, you won’t catch what you’re not looking for, and that’s the benefit of a cleanup.
No company is exempt from miscounting or fraudulent charges. In the same way that many people wind up with subscriptions they’ve forgotten about, some companies fall victim to the same pitfalls. What’s more, a bookkeeper can help you identify where you’re missing opportunity to be more successful or increase your bottom line. If 1 of your employees is generating 50% of your income, your accountant is the the person you want in your corner. They can either help you to find another employee with that level of efficiency or, like Money Ball, several less expensive employees to achieve the same output.

Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly does a bookkeeper do?
In short, a bookkeeper records, stores, analyzes, and keeps all financial records of a company. All transactions your company makes: the income you earn (payments from clients or services rendered), expenses you report (employees, internet, tools, office space, etc).
What is the difference between accountants and bookkeepers?
The simplest way of understanding the difference is, bookkeepers are objective, accountants are subjective. The role of a bookkeeper is to understand the all the company’s finances to provide immediate, transparent, and accurate data. An accountant then serves as your guide based on the bookkeeping data. Accountants can create a financial roadmap to grow your business, evaluating what costs are ultimately “saving” funds given a long-enough timeline and what may be beneficial.
Do bookkeepers pay bills?
Yes, one of the primary duties of a bookkeeper is to ensure the lights stay on — so to speak. Bookkeepers ensure the bills are paid and that there’s enough for recurring payments. They ensure suppliers are paid and the forecast remains up to date, even with severe changes (such as a global pandemic). In the case of our firm, we also provide payroll for your employees.
