You are not alone, no matter how apparently simple bookkeeping is supposed to be and no matter how much HMRC write about how easy it is to keep up to date do you find that like me you either find yourself working on your books late at night OR worse still having to lose work just to catch up?
Why is it that when we start the spreadsheet doesn’t add up or fails to save, why is it that our supposedly easy to use bookkeeping App has decided that at that moment its running out of charge.
Spreadsheets, bookkeeping apps, direct bank feeds, software packages all have a place and all are there to help us but I all things we must never “let the tail wag the dog”
So next time you are working late at night on your books and thinking there simply has to be a better way think “Get me an accountant” and get your life and business back.
