One of the first services a business needs to outsource is bookkeeping and payroll. Government reporting requirements are becoming more challenging every year. Not having a knowledgeable person on board to handle the details can cost you money and productivity. And chances are you can make ten times more doing what you do best than you would pay a bookkeeper to handle your accounting and payroll tasks.
On this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk with Martha Avens of Avens Rose Bookkeeping about year-end reporting requirements, how and why to outsource your bookkeeping, and how to hire a full-time person when it is time to bring the bookkeeping function in-house.
In my product and service spotlight, I feature Justin Mills of Farmers Insurance. He'll talk about commercial insurance and how to make sure your business has the proper coverage.
