A remote bookkeeper is responsible for the same tasks as an in-house one. They work independently of any employer but still collaborate with them as their clients. Any business owner who uses an external bookkeeper still considers one of their team and will keep up communication and relationships as they would other staff. Sometimes, the bookkeeper may come into the office to collect financial documents from reconciling the accounts. Still, most can help you digitize all financial processes to have purely remote operations.
Challenges of bookkeeping and how we can help
