Bookkeeping is a key aspect for any business to manage and organize its financial data. It also helps them plan ahead and make smart decisions. With the advancement of bookkeeping technology, it is easy to prepare accounts and store them online. These accounts can be accessed from anywhere with a network connection, thereby benefiting businesses and their bookkeepers. Moreover, with online bookkeeping, companies don’t need to worry about data theft or destruction as they have a foolproof backup system that stores these records under high security.

Despite these advantages, people have concerns about online bookkeeping. This is mostly the result of misunderstandings and myths about the concept of bookkeeping online. To help businesses to steer clear of these misconceptions, Freestone Associates has debunked two of the most widely believed myths about online bookkeeping.

Myth 1: Online bookkeeping poses a security breach
It is common for business owners and individuals to have second thoughts or reservations about online bookkeeping services due to the sensitive nature of their financial records. But rest assured, this is clearly untrue! Know that a company like QuickBooks uses the same security with their software as a bank does. If anyone still has some questions or concerns about this, they can reach out to us for further details.

Myth 2: Online bookkeeping software is expensive
It won’t cost an arm or a leg! As online software provides a more efficient system through automation, it saves many hours of manual data entry while improving the quality of the data and freeing up time for value-added analysis.

Customers often believe these common bookkeeping myths as they try to save money. Hence the notion “Penny wise, pound foolish.” At Freestone Associates, we strive to be as accurate as possible while being cost-effective.
