Bookkeeping For Designers

In industries like art and design, principals are often creative thinkers and masters of their craft.

Especially when bookkeeping is concerned, it’s essential to enlist a strong design bookkeeper who understands the special needs of design companies.

Disaster often strikes when business owners don’t delegate to trusted professionals and instead try to do it all themselves. After all, a jack-of-all-trades is a master of none.

Designers who do the bookkeeping themselves may initially save money by not hiring a bookkeeper, but it will ultimately cost valuable time and expensive mistakes.

The design bookkeepers at Sherman Oaks Accounting & Bookkeeping powered by One Source Services, Inc. have the design industry knowledge to implement systems that make sense to designers.

We understand the “other side” of the business and how designers can increase jobs, cut time, improve mark-up, and why they charge clients the way that they do.

Designers may face hundreds of wholesale vendors, all with varying terms, billing rules, sales tax exemption processes, lead times, etc. They must keep track of PO’s, sales tax requirements, business licensing, billing for time and materials, and more.

It’s in a designer’s best interest to hire a bookkeeper if they don’t have the knowledge and experience to do it alone.

Bookkeeping issues can result in lost money through late fees, overdrafts, lower profits, and more. Plus, they can negatively impact relationships with both clients and vendors.

A design bookkeeping professional like the ones at Sherman Oaks Accounting & Bookkeeping powered by One Source Services, Inc. will keep track of your time, accurately record your expenses, make sure you get paid the right amount, and avoid surprising your clients when they receive invoices.

We want to improve the quality of life for designers and craftspeople so they can spend more time honing their craft, pursuing their vision, and doing the things that are important to them.
