A logical direction for your Business success

Selecting a bookkeeper


Selecting a bookkeeper

There is one thing that a small business owner needs more of and that is time; time to work on your business, time to enjoy family and personal interests and time just to relax. Quite often when time is short, the first business role to be left unattended is “the bookkeeping”. One way to help with this problem is to “outsource” a bookkeeper. Logical Business Solutions can assist you with your bookkeeping so that you can have more “time”. 

We often get asked "what is our hourly rate".  The question that business owners really mean is "How much will bookkeeping cost".  The answer to this is dependant on whether the business regards bookkeeping as an investment in their business or an expense for their business.  A bookkeeper can be an invaluable asset to your business if you consider them an investment in your business.

When choosing your bookkeeper you should meet with them personally and ask them the relevant questions. We suggest that your bookkeeper have the ability to work with your Accountant, have the relevant skills, experience or qualifications, that you can access Client Referrals from your bookkeeper to confirm experience, that you define their list of duties and confirm whether they are a registered BAS Agent. You may also ask them if they are a member of a professional bookkeeping body, do they participate in ongoing training courses and are they able to assist you if your business needs change in the future.


A bookkeeper can be very valuable to your business and if working with your Accountant (note: a bookkeeper is not a replacement for your Accountant), they can provide you with up to date and vital information such as Profit & Loss Statements, Balance Sheets and Cash Flow Statements. Good bookkeeping will give you an accurate financial picture of your businesses performance. This is extremely important if your bank or other interested parties require your financial information.
