I tried my hand at doing the bookkeeping for my cafe, but I was not too successful at it. I am very organized when it comes to receipts, ledgers and things like that, but I do not have a good relationship with numbers in general. I can do it, but I have to double and triple check my work to make sure I did not make any mistakes. It just turned out to be better for me personally to hire a company that has cafe accountants. I could have hired a bookkeeper to come in a few times a week, but I just did not want the hassle of that.
I thought it would be better to hire an independent company that has a proven track record. I basically wanted to just have a company that could be sent the information so I would not have to have a dedicated space for them to work at my cafe. It is not a small cafe by any means, but every inch is used for something. I did not want to have to create space for a bookkeeper to do work because that would take something valuable away from that particular space.
I looked at a few different companies that offer this type of service, and it was evident from the start which one was the right one for me to use. This company has a good reputation, they deal with cafe accounting so they know all the ins and outs of this type of business, and they have some well known clients. I have been using them for over a year now, and I could not be more pleased with how easy everything is in this regard. I have had no problems at all, and everything is seamless. That is why I leave things like this to the experts!
