Professional bookkeeping services do the same work as in-house bookkeepers, but there are advantages to going outside: privacy; security that your needs will be covered if one person goes on vacation; freedom from the hassles of hiring, training, providing benefits; etc. Most medium-sized bookkeeping companies have team members from a wide range of industries. During onboarding, they make every effort to match you with a principal bookkeeper who has worked in your field. If that can’t be done, they will be sure at least one member of the team has the experience necessary to answer questions specific to your industry.

Their ongoing work will include categorizing transactions and reconciling your accounts, among other tasks. You receive weekly or monthly reports.
