Are you organized and have no idea where your returned check statements are, your 1099s for doing your taxes, what you paid on your mortgage and other concerns?
There sure is a lot of paperwork today for both your own personal life and business which is why learning a good accounting and book keeping system is important. There are different forms of organization and you need to pick one that works best for you.
Obviously you can hire a local person to do your books or make the decision to take it on yourself. You want to keep things like:
Paid Bill Receipts Current Bank Statements Current Cancelled Checks Income Tax Working Papers Employment Records Health Benefit Information Credit Card Information Insurance Policies Copies of Wills Family Health Records
There is software that you can use to organize things and you can also use a rolodex organizer software and of course outsource it. In any case the main thing is to accept that an accounting and book keeping system will be helpful in your life and take steps to evaluate some. Stop by for some ideas.
