A freelancer sells work by the hour, day, or job instead of working on a salary for one employer. That’s how CEO Anna Mazisyuk started out before she founded Sherman Oaks Accounting & Bookkeeping powered by One Source Services, Inc.
Freelancers usually venture off on their own because they want more time to do what they love rather than work for someone else, whether that’s to raise a family, pursue their passion, or hone their craft.
Freelance work is as varied as the freelancers who perform it. From writing to designing and marketing to teaching, you name it and there’s probably a freelancer who does it.
If you’re a freelancer who doesn’t have a bookkeeper, then hire one now even if it’s not us (unless you have the knowledge and experience to do it correctly yourself).
Or, if you’re thinking about becoming a freelancer, then start on the right foot with top-notch bookkeeping from the get-go. Don’t put it off! As reliable as your memory may be, you probably won’t recall every detail about every past transaction.
Find peace of mind and improve quality of life by delegating the bookkeeping for freelance work to a professional.
Investing in a bookkeeper who specializes in freelancers, like the ones at Sherman Oaks Accounting & Bookkeeping powered by One Source Services, Inc., will simplify finances, maximize freelancing growth potential, improve profits, and much more.
Good bookkeepers help freelancers keep track of expenses, manage late payments, plan tax payments, and provide a clear view of the business’s health (something easy to lose sight of while working with constantly shifting priorities and multiple clients).
Plus, prompt and regularly emailed invoices will get you paid faster, an aging summary will identify late payers and problematic clients, automatic due date reminders will improve communication with clients, and payment collections will be more efficient when they’re needed.
Regular and accurate bookkeeping in the cloud will provide immediate real-time access to the numerous updates freelancers often make throughout the day. And, online accounting software makes freelance business data extremely easy, secure, and convenient to share with your bookkeeping provider.
Sherman Oaks Accounting & Bookkeeping powered by One Source Services, Inc. can set you up with reliable cloud-based accounting software, clean up the books, and maintain them on a regular basis. Or, for freelancers who want to be more involved in the business side of things, we offer bookkeeping training and support.
Hiring the right bookkeeper, one who understands all that goes into running a successful freelancing operation, can make a huge difference for your business.
