Managing your books yourself may be easy at the start. You can use Excel, an online template, or even better, accounting software. But as your business grows, so do the paperwork and your financial needs. Eventually, the time arrives when managing the books is the last thing you want to worry about. In that case, you should hire a bookkeeper for your business simply because it makes good business sense to do so. They can do these tasks better, and you can do other tasks better.
