Trusting a person online with your most important financial information is definitely scary, but the benefits are worth it! For one, you’re not limited or forced to resort to the nearest bookkeeper and can instead spread your options globally, choosing based on quality instead of simply distance. In addition, you will always be able to access your books and don’t have to wait for your bookkeeper to reply, schedule an appointment, and show you the information. If you still feel uneasy, you can take steps to make sure the bookkeeper you choose is who they say they are. Check out their website, look for testimonials, ask for referrals, and see if they use trustworthy and secure methods of information transfer. Sending important documents through email, for example, is generally discouraged. A trustworthy bookkeeper cares for the safety of your information and identity and will always encourage you to use secure software, like HubDoc or GoogleDrive to send documents containing sensitive information. We want you to feel comfortable and confident if you do choose to work with us, so feel free to contact us and address any concerns you may have. Perhaps meeting via zoom will reassure you that Moose Creek Bookkeeping truly does have your best interest in mind and that your books will be done in the utmost quality.
