Bookkeeping & Accounting For Small Businesses

Get Your Time Back — Without Adding to Headcount

Small businesses deserve better results from bookkeeping and accounting functions. Outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting to SmartBooks means you get all the benefits of a full-time on-staff bookkeeper, accountant, or controller — at a fraction of the cost and without the hassle of recruiting, hiring, and managing another staff member. We take care of all that and give you your time back, so you can focus on running and growing your business — secure in the confidence that your books will be accurate and armed with the financial data you and your team need to get your jobs done right.

Why Outsource Bookkeeping & Accounting?

In-house talent is great, but the financial realities for most small and mid-sized businesses limit what you can afford to hire. For most small businesses, the choice is either a reasonably skilled part-timer or a full-time employee who’s enthusiastic and reliable but doesn’t have specialized knowledge or expertise.

Done right, outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting allows you to purchase a higher level of skill and a comprehensive array of services and functions, but at a fractional cost. And unlike with that part-timer who’s available only certain days of the week or month, with SmartBooks, you’re not captive to individuals and their calendars. With SmartBooks, you get the benefits of a dedicated individual, plus the support of a full team.

In addition, outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting gives you some benefits you can’t get from either a part-time or a full-time employee. Like the ability to optimize skills and services to your precise needs. Like built-in protection against errors and fraud. Like the freedom to work without having to recruit, hire, and manage an additional employee.

What You Get When Outsourcing With SmartBooks

  • Dedicated Bookkeeper/Accountant

    Every SmartBooks Bookkeeping & Accounting client works closely with a single SmartBooker who serves as your primary contact and is responsible for executing your work on a day-to-day basis. Your SmartBooker will know your account inside and out and will always be ready to handle your questions.

  • Senior-Level Oversight

    No matter how simple or complex your bookkeeping and accounting are, every SmartBooks client benefits from monthly peer review, as well as periodic oversight by a senior accountant or controller, many of whom are CPAs. We’re making sure everything is happening as it’s supposed to, proactively checking for errors, and thinking strategically about what more your bookkeeping and accounting could do to support your business objectives.

  • The Communication Cadence You Choose

    SmartBooks service plans give you the option of meeting with us monthly, weekly, or more frequently. Of course, we understand that business doesn’t always fit a pre-planned schedule, so no matter what plan you choose, we’re happy to provide additional support when the unexpected happens. And whether we’re meeting all the time or less frequently, we’ll always be getting the books done for you.

  • 24×7 Access, Transparency, and Control

    Outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting with SmartBooks means you’re always just a few clicks away from accurate and timely data on all your company’s finances. And, of course, you maintain complete control over your accounts and financial resources. Our internal quality control processes and routine peer review of all accounts gives you confidence that your company financials are up-to-date and reliable.
