Seventeen years ago this week I began providing bookkeeping and payroll support to a few local businesses.  Three and a half years later I needed to move out of home to an office because work had increased, the files were taking over what little space we had and I needed someone to help.  I started looking for a small office for 3 but ended up with…
In their simplest form management accounts inform the business owner and/or management team of the key numbers for their business.  Every business is different and the key numbers will vary according to the type of business and even within different departments.…
As bookkeepers one of the many skills we need is good attention to detail.  So its probably not a surprise that it is one of the skills I list when advertising a bookkeeper position.  Attention to detail has several meanings but includes  being thorough and accurate.
