Do I Need Bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping is important for several reasons. First, it is used as a tool in your businesses tax preparation. By keeping accurate records of your income and expenses you ensure taxes are paid only on your true net income. Bookkeeping also allows you to keep a picture of how much your business earns and what you spend your money on. Having this info can assist you in setting future goals for profitability and/or sales. Having an accurate set of financials is imperative when attempting to secure business loans or establish business credit. In the event of an IRS audit, bookkeeping can be well worth the expense as IRS requires accurate financial records to be maintained. One last reason, by freeing up time you would spend trying to put together your financials will allow you to concentrate on running your business.
Do I Need Payroll?
If you are incorporated as an S Corporation, the IRS requires you to run a payroll. In addition, if you pay someone to do work for your business you become responsible for deducting payroll taxes based on wages earned. These taxes are then required to be paid to IRS and State agencies. Payroll reports are required to be filed quarterly and annually. Payroll processing is time-consuming and often confusing. By outsourcing your payroll, you will have more free time and be less worried about whether you are in compliance with ever-changing rules associated with payroll.
