Benefits of Outsourcing to BGGE Bookkeeping Service
By BJ Gray, Freelance Bookkeeper

Micro-business owners wear many hats.  For many, bookkeeping is one that is not always a good fit.  While many micro-business owners often lack the interest, time, or knowledge to maintain their books properly, they still resist hiring a bookkeeper --- claiming they cannot afford it. 

When you spend too much time on your books in order to save a few bucks, you have to ask yourself, "How much money did I really save?"  I have a client that told me before coming to me, they spent all day once a month invoicing their customers;whereas, it took me only an hour to complete the project.  That time could have been spent with family, friends, relaxing, or making a sale.  When you don't really know what you are doing, you should also ask yourself --- "Can I afford an audit, pay unnecessary penalties and interest, or go to jail?"  Forgive me if I seem overly-dramatic here.  But I know some micro-business owners who keep their books in their "heads" or throw their receipts in a box and call it a day. 

Below are some benefits of outsourcing your bookkeeping needs to my freelance service. 


BGGE Bookkeeping Service offers full-service or part-service flexibility. 
  • I can provide as few or as many services as you need.  No bookkeeping project is too small.  
  • I offer consulting services and software training on an "as needed" basis for those who might not need help with their day-to day recordkeeping, but just want some advice on how to set-up their books or use their accounting software.     
  • I also offer federal, county, and city tax preparation services for sole-proprietors and single entity LLC's.  My services are not designed to replace your current CPA.  Instead, I can work with your current firm throughout the year to ensure that your books are tax-ready.
BGGE Bookkeeping Service will create, maintain or help you maintain a good financial record-keeping system. 
  • Using spreadsheets, QuickBooks or other accounting software, I will customize your company books or convert your problematic financial data into useful reports and charts so that you'll be able to determine the financial health of your business on an “at-a-glance” basis.
  • Why is there such a great emphasis on a good financial record-keeping system?
  • It allows you to monitor the success or failure of your business.
  • It allows you to make informed planning decisions based on sound financial data.
  • It allows you to generate reports to obtain bank financing or other sources of capital.
  • It allows you to present organized financial data to your tax return preparer to ensure an accurate income tax return.
  • It allows you to compute other federal, state & local tax liabilities such as payroll taxes, sales tax, etc.
  • It is required by law.

BGGE Bookkeeping Service provides expert service for a fraction of your current costs. 

  • Pay for only the services you use.  I operate on a month-to-month basis, which means you can cancel service at any time.  I also offer referral incentives and early pay discounts.
  • In most cases, I charge a flat-rate per project based on several factors such as computer time, account size, type & number of reports, etc.   That way there are no surprises.
  • Typically, a freelance bookkeeper charges $10 - $50 per hour dependent on region and skill level.  For the same job or project, a CPA will charge $100 - $300 per hour.  You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see how much you will save using a freelance bookkeeper.  
  • By outsourcing to me on a full-service basis, not only will you minimize your accounting fees but you will also spend less time, effort, and money training and/or supervising a new bookkeeper.  You'll also save money on other employee related expenses (i.e. payroll taxes, retirement benefits, loss production due to absenteeism, etc.).
