As a landscaper, you understand the importance of creating beautiful outdoor spaces for your clients. However, as your business grows, finding the time for lawn care bookkeeping can be difficult. Neglecting your finances can result in overdrawing your bank account, missing important deadlines, failing to invoice clients, or making costly mistakes on your taxes. Without proper bookkeeping, you won’t have the information you need to make important financial decisions.
So, what’s the role of a bookkeeper in landscaping bookkeeping?
A bookkeeper is responsible for day-to-day accounting tasks such as paying bills, sending invoices, collecting payments, and entering transactions in your accounting software. They can help you prepare financial statements for taxes but typically cannot provide broader tax or investment strategies. The bookkeeper maintains an up-to-date picture of your financials, so your accountant can provide a higher-level strategy for your financial decision-making.
Finding a bookkeeper who is familiar with the nuances of landscaping bookkeeping is essential. As a landscaper, you have unique financial responsibilities, including managing your client’s payments for materials and services. A bookkeeper can guide you on how to best use credit cards for your business, help reconcile your statements, and advise you on the benefits and downsides of accepting credit card payments from clients.
