Don't worry if you hate bookkeeping, YOU don't need to do it... 

We all do it. We gravitate toward the parts of our jobs we love and push those we dread aside. Inevitably, those tasks looming in the back of our mind make their way all over our desk and consume our to-do list. Top of the heap? Bookkeeping. 

Why Do We Dread Bookkeeping? 

Bookkeeping is confusing and difficult! Most people didn’t get open their dream business to dive into the minutia of numbers, assets, invoices and reconciliations. Let's take a look at what tasks people dread the most and why each is critical for a business to thrive. 

Navigating All That Accounts Software 

No matter how easy they claim to be, bookkeeping software is a bear to understand. You must be willing to invest a lot of time in tutorials just to do the basics. The catch? They’re absolutely necessary for keeping your business in order. 

VAT Returns 

The rules and regulations surrounding the filing of these forms are complex and not for the faint of heart. Understanding this quarterly component of business is daunting and, if reported incorrectly, can cost you money. When you’re starting out, you may not even need to register for this tax. Essentially, VAT is the definition of confusing. 

Reconciliations 

What seems like a simple math problem — money out subtracted from money in — is anything but easy. There are so many data points to consider when reconciling your books each month: 
 
Separation of personal and business funds 
Invoices outstanding 
Recurring deductions and payments 
Professional fees 
Payroll 
Carryovers 
Getting reconciliation wrong can leave you short at the end of the month. An unexpected deficit will throw a wrench in your operations and may lead to even larger shortfalls each month. Knowing exactly what your balance is will help you sleep much better at night.
