How do I know I can trust my bookkeeper?
No matter how friendly or experienced your bookkeeper may seem, there are many things that he/she could be doing that may jeopardize your business. Make sure that your bookkeeper gives you access to your accounting system. You should have access to all of your financial records, and if your bookkeeper seems hesitant about giving it to you, this is an immediate red flag! You should also ensure that your bookkeeper prepares bank and credit card reconciliations, and that you get a copy of them monthly. It is important to review these documents and look for any adjustments made. If you see any adjustments made by your bookkeeper this is another red flag, as it proves that he/she did not account for something properly. Never hand over your finances and expect them to be entirely managed without you having to review them periodically.
