When I first thought about hiring cafe accountants, I thought that I was going to get someone to come and work at my cafe. I talked with a few different companies, and they stated that the business volume was not enough to justify having someone come to my location for the work. That got me thinking of the different alternatives when it came to my bookkeeping needs, and I realized that they were right. Why would I invest in a full time bookkeeper when I did not have the amount of work that would be needed for them. I certainly did not want them to do my bookkeeping for as many as hours as was needed, then work in the cafe in whatever capacity was needed.
That was just silliness, so I started looking at accounting firms that would be able to handle this remotely. I was happy with what I ended up with because I am getting the most value for the money that I am putting out for this accounting service. Instead of paying someone for full time work, I am only paying for the work that needs to be done by the accounting firm.
Everything is handled digitally too. I never even knew what cloud services were before I hired this accounting firm, but it is how everything is handled between my cafe and their firm. All I need to do is scan invoices and other receipts, give new employee information, and everything is taken care of. The time that it takes for me to do that is mere seconds for a receipt, or maybe a minute when I hire someone new. That is definitely something I can handle without having to worry about if I am doing something right or wrong. I am thankful that my accounting needs have been taken care of so easily!
