Save money, get back your time, and balance your books with a bookkeeping virtual assistant. We provide onshore, vetted, and highly trained bookkeeping assistants. Here are 5 reasons to outsource your bookkeeping to a virtual assistant.

Free up your time

As a business owner, there’s nothing more valuable than your time. If you’ve been spending more time than you should training yourself on the latest bookkeeping software, sorting through receipts, and managing monthly budgets (on top of the countless other items that require your constant attention), then it may be time to seek outside support so that you can take back your time and refocus on what’s most important.

Bookkeeping expertise

Stop making mistakes with your financial records and keep your books organized with expert help from a bookkeeping specialist. At Virtual Gurus, we hire virtual assistants in general and specialized areas. Our bookkeeping assistants are experienced, specialized assistants who are professionally-trained in bookkeeping and accounting. They have a thorough understanding of various accounting practices and are well-versed with the latest bookkeeping software. This means that you can have peace of mind knowing that you’ve outsourced your business’ books to the pros.

Save money

Saving money is one of the most important reasons why you should outsource your bookkeeping to a virtual assistant. Having an in-house, salaried bookkeeper can be costly and inefficient, especially when there is a lot of downtime. Our virtual assistants are freelancers who work by the hour. This means that you’re only paying when you need work done – it’s as simple as that. Going through the process of hiring and training can also be a huge cost to your business, which is minimized when you are matched with one of our skilled, pre-vetted, and experienced bookkeeping assistants.

Remote is the future

We’ve all seen the effects the pandemic has had on traditional, bricks-and-mortar businesses and offices. Traditional employment is shifting – and businesses are pivoting to meet the challenges of our current situation. Remote work is the future and many of us have now tested the effectiveness of working from home. With all of the technology we have available to us now (Zoom, cloud-based programs and software, remoting into our office through our home computers), working remotely has never been easier.

Allocate your resources efficiently

Many businesses have employees who wear many hats. You may already have an assistant who is juggling your calendar, inbox, phone calls, and office management, while trying to get your books balanced at the end of each month. What if you could give your assistant more time to focus on their tasks and reallocate their responsibilities to achieve greater efficiencies? Have each member of your team focused on their unique tasks, work, and projects, so that they are producing their best work, by the time it needs to be delivered.

There are dozens of reasons why you should outsource your bookkeeping to a virtual assistant – freeing up your time, getting bookkeeping expertise, saving money, preparing your business for the future, and allocating your resources efficiently is just scratching the surface. At Virtual Gurus, we’ve already done the heavy lifting for you. We’ve pre-vetted each individual who works for us and assess their skills to find the perfect match for your business.
