Without doubt our best work this year was our joint initiative with the Professional Bookkeepers Academy. As our customers grow, it is a natural step to delegate or outsource the bookkeeping. Unfortunately that is often accompanied by a breakdown of systems and a loss of quality information. A PBA bookkeeper is trained and supported in the most efficient use of SortMyBooks in particular and cloud technology in general as it relates to business paperwork. They are also trained in dealing with accountant communications at year end or tax time, transforming this normally stressful time of writing cheques and wondering what it all means into an informative business planning and review session. As it should have always been.
The Dublin, Galway and Kerry courses of 2014 have provided us with extremely qualified bookkeepers, each coming in with their own specialties such as Revenue expertise, Retail chain expertise, bookies, pubs, restaurants, tax planning, the list goes on. Many of these are helping our customers with bookkeeping already.
The first course of 2015 kicks off in Kerry. I can’t tell you what a relief it is personally to me to have these people on hand when I get that call from a customer saying their business has grown and they need help in this area. Which happily happens a lot! Do not hesitate to call me if this is you, this network of high quality bookkeepers is growing countrywide.
