It's important to have a bookkeeper because...

Bookkeepers perform a critical function for the firms and organizations they serve. Not only are bookkeepers challenged to record routine money transactions, to reconcile accounts and to locate misguided transactions, they also must be able to communicate both verbally and on paper all the activities within a business in order to explain accounting matters to owners and managers.

Bookkeepers produce the vital reports that keep business up to date on the financial condition of their companies. They prepare monthly financial statements, budgets and cost analysis for business products and services.
By outsourcing your bookkeeping and business requirements you leave yourself free to grow and market your business to its full potential.

There is a saying “Do what you do well and delegate the rest”.
