Here are some tips to help you to find the right one for the business:
First, are you a tech savvy type of person? If you hate computer and frustrated with email, uploading, downloading, online banking, then stop here. You should not use a virtual bookkeeper. Find a good accountant close to your residence or business is essential for you.
Make sure you check references and testimonials for any virtual bookkeeper you find online. You’ll want to feel reasonably sure that your finances are in the right hands and that your bookkeeper has a stellar reputation.
It's important to know what technology the virtual bookkeeper use. What are their security measures? How you do send paperwork to them? Do you have to mail them? Email them? Fax them? Or upload to a secured file vault? How often and how much work will be involved on your end? The process needs to be seamless and efficient to save you time and money.
How available is the virtual bookkeeper? Will the monthly work done within the specified timeline? I have seem some bookkeepers half a year behind the work after you engage them.
What software do they use? Can you access the software anytime? If the software is outdated or not suitable for your business, it's going to be costly to convert to a different one later one when you change bookkeeper.
