Every business needs to keep track of its income and expenses. This is more so if you are running a business that extends credit to your customers. Without keeping proper record of payments received and expenses, businesses would most likely find themselves in the red in no time. The amount of income and expenses obviously increases as a business grows. The workload involved though, may not justify employing a full-time staff to handle the book-keeping.
With your skill with numbers, you will take care of the accounts for your client’s growing business. You will need to be very comfortable with figures, especially since you are dealing with other people’s money. While some companies may allow you to take home their books to prepare their monthly reports, you should be prepared that your client’s will require you to go in to their office.
Many businesses these days prefer to outsource their workload to reduced staff costs. Your clients may be sufficiently pleased with your service that even as their business grows, they may also choose to retain you as their accountant.
