Do you need
an outside bookkeeper or an employee?
Not sure? We can help!
How many hours a week will you need the
person? Is it on-site or off-site? Do you want to have more control
over the work or do you just want the work done? Do you need the work done
during specific hours? How big is your company? Do you have other
employees? These are all factors to consider when deciding whether to
bring in an employee or hire an outside contractor like us.
If you are a very small company with no
other employees, you probably want to start out subcontracting the work out and
letting someone else do the work at their own office or under the own schedule
(Payroll is a big step to take so be ready for it!). If you don't mind the
work being done off-site, than a subcontractor will suit you as well. You
will pay more per hour, but you will not have to worry about payroll,
withholdings, deductions and payroll taxes.
If you already have other employees and
need the work done in your office, during specific hours, you probably need to
hire the bookkeeper as an employee. You have more "control" over
employees. And while you can generally pay them less per hour, you will
have to pay employer taxes and workers compensation insurance on them as well.
But per Internal Revenue Service guidelines, if you are controlling how, when
are where the work is done - than you have to hire the person as an employee.
If you need help deciding, call us for a
consult and we can help. Then we can help you find a suitable bookkeeper
either through us or as an employee to hire.
Not sure where to start? Wondering
what you would look for in a qualified bookkeeper? Never hired someone to
handle your finances before? This person will be handling some important
work for your business. Its very important that they be qualified and able
to do the job right so you do not have to call someone like us to fix it later.
Here are a few packages we have put
together to help you find the right employee for your business.
