Here’s What You Can Do with Virtual Bookkeeping Assistant/s

 

Hiring a Virtual Bookkeeper Assistant has never been more in demand. Just about these days, 50-58% of large companies use cloud (Quickbooks, Odo, Freshbooks, Xero, Sage etc). Thanks for Cloud Accounting, It is easy to bring in your virtual bookkeeping assistant with no to minimal onboarding required. Phew! That just only means you can easily create an account, have your virtual bookkeeper to log in and access, and you’re finally ready to outsource numerous bookkeeping tasks.

 

Here are some of the amazing things you can do to use cloud accounting:

 

  • Get help with your accounting cloud software. Let’s admit! As much as you would like to think you have wrapped up everything neatly and in order, that accounting cloud software isn’t always as intuitive as you can imagine. Sometimes, it’s just confusing that you even have to scratch your head to know each and every feature of that platform. Having an experienced  Virtual bookkeeping assistant from VA FLIX helps you understand your way around QuickBooks (and other accounting software) easily and quickly so you don’t have to wonder if you’re doing it right.
  • Getting cash flow reports. You and only you are in charge of your business. Question is, how much control do you have if you’re unsure about your own cash flow? If you want your virtual bookkeeping assistant to provide you with regular reports, e.g cash flow reports, invoice updates, even monitoring your credit card usage can be checked and delegated to a virtual bookkeeping assistant.
     
  • Outsourcing your payroll services. Cloud accounting made payroll management easier for business owners. Having a virtual bookkeeper or a virtual bookkeeping assistant always keeps tabs on most important information/data means you don’t constantly have to measure and monitor your payroll services. A virtual bookkeeper can also generate necessary reports on what you can expect in terms of the payroll taxes, giving you more accurate measurements and security of where your company stands.
  • Outsource data entry. Do you have a lot of expense physical receipts that you’d like to load into the system? Do you need help to fill out an intuit table, or even prepare for tax filing? Do you need to do bank reconciliations that require poring through massive amounts of data? You don’t have to do all that data entry by yourself, stop over thinking. outsource it.‍ 😀 VA FLIX is here!
  • Monitor financial transactions. Your financial transaction/s is/are the lifeblood of your business. Not only they determine your overall financial information, but they also paint a picture of what your company’s current standing or how the business is doing every day. You can keep a virtual bookkeeper’s eye on these financial transactions while you focus on productive work.

 

How to Incorporate a Virtual Bookkeeper into Your Business Routine

 

You might already be familiar as to how accounting software works and helps businesses globally; Just an additional information, about 64% of small businesses use some different versions of accounting software currently. Incorporating a virtual bookkeeper assistant with an accounting and bookkeeping experience might look as easy as adding them to your accounting cloud software and telling them to go to town. Before you do that process, try to consider some ways of how virtual bookkeepers work best:

 

  • Bringing financial data into single reports. Know an accounting hack? Have your virtual bookkeeper bring together your financial data and bring multiple variables to a single report. This will help you keep abreast of all the latest updates and developments at your company with minimal to no interruption to your daily schedule.
  • Asking assistance with tax preparation. Tax preparation is a major part of doing business, and that’s not going to go for only one season. You will have to file estimated quarterly taxes. Your virtual bookkeeping assistant can help you understand how much funds need to be set aside for these payments.
  • Keep up to date on the latest developments. We recommend working with a virtual bookkeeper with the same home country as you—or at least expertise in that country. You’ll want a virtual bookkeeper well versed in the tax laws of the United States if that’s where you pay your taxes.
  • Outsourcing your most basic accounting tasks. Sick of generating invoices yourself? Or approving reports for expenses? These are tasks that you can outsource  to a VA FLIX Bookkeeper Assistant immediately. Why even bother? It turns out, outsourcing these to a bookkeeping service will do more to free our time.

With a help of a skilled virtual bookkeeper from VA FLIX, you will and may be able to identify the key areas of spending that you can immediately cut loose.

 

You will and for sure notice that there are some other intangible benefits for hiring someone to stay on top of your important numbers.

FAQ for hiring Virtual Bookkeepers from VA FLIX

 

With something as important as bookkeeping, it is only natural that you’re going to have plenty of questions. That’s why we have taken some of the most popular questions we get from our clients about working with a virtual accounting assistant to help your clarify the process:

 

What kinds of businesses are ideal for virtual bookkeepers?

 

If you file business taxes – which we sure hope you do, then you’re a candidate to hire a virtual bookkeeper. Like any other businesses need to get a hold of their finances, and any small business owner who no longer has the time and energy to keep the books, you need to think about outsourcing this vital part of your business. 

 

If you own a fast growing business, or even if you’re a self-employed freelancer or a contractor, keeping your financial reports or books in order is an essential and necessary part of that growth. A virtual bookkeeper from VA FLIX goes beyond simply delegation and enhances your bookkeeping with your assistant specific accounting skills.

 

What’s the major difference between hiring a virtual bookkeeper and having my own accountant in-house?

 

Great question! There are two key differences for it. One, a virtual bookkeeper is able to work remotely, which only means that you’ll be able to contact them via phone, skype, facebook chat or email. In specific circumstances, you can reach out to your virtual assistant if your primary assistant isn’t available. In other words, an in-house accountant that you hire specifically to handle your books is going to be physically present.

 

The second difference is that an in-house accountant working in your office will likely be far more expensive. That’s correct! A in-house accountant will require job benefits, a full-time salary, and access. For the virtual bookkeeper, you’ll only pay them for the hours they work and that’s it! Plus VA FLIX have reasonable prices. 

 

What limits does a Bookkeeping Assistant have?

 

In the digital age, there’s very little chance an experienced virtual bookkeeper can’t do for you. You may not be able to work with your assistant physically, and that’s the only cons. Our Virtual Bookkeepers are fully trained and know how taxes work in your country. Most of the business of keeping books and financial transactions can be done online these days, and almost all businesses run their bookkeeping online. As long as the numbers are there, your virtual bookkeeper can review them.

 

I know nothing about bookkeeping. How can I meet a Virtual Assistant from you?

 

It always helps to find a bookkeeper with specific experience in your industry, but really, it’s not necessary and it’s a FORTUNE! We understand that choosing a bookkeeper to hire can be a unique challenge, which is why John and Karen from VA FLIX will assign a Bookkeeping Expert to help you match a Virtual Assistant you need. VA FLIX will guide you and will answer your questions about hiring a virtual accounting assistant even if this is your first time.
