Types of Bookkeepers You Can Hire
Now that we have looked at the pros and cons of hiring a bookkeeper let’s look at the types of bookkeepers available to hire. When searching for the right bookkeeper to hire, keep in mind that there are several different types, which include:
- In-house bookkeeper – This bookkeeper will be an in-house hire who gains full advantage of your company’s resources, benefits, and salaries.
- Agency bookkeeper – It’s common for larger businesses to hire agency bookkeepers to ensure that there are a team of bookkeepers handling finances.
- Freelance bookkeeper – If you want your accounts to be consolidated once every year, hiring a freelancer can help you keep costs down.
Outsourced bookkeeper – It’s possible to outsource bookkeeping duties to a completely separate company that will train a team to handle your bookkeeping needs while also covering bookkeeping expenses.
As we have seen there are many benefits of hiring a bookkeeper for any business that wants to make sound financial decisions and keep their books balanced every year. Without hiring a bookkeeper, you could make costly mistakes and may be more at risk for an IRS audit. The type of bookkeeper you hire depends on your company’s needs.
