Starting a Home-Based Bookkeeping Service Business
Independent bookkeepers charge anywhere from $25 per hour to $60. Some require a flat monthly fee basis depending on the level of services they offer. So, who are your customers?
Some small businesses can not afford a full-time bookkeeper and the independent bookkeeper fits the bill in most cases, especially with advances in at home financial software. The small gift shop is too busy handling customers, inventory and the newest product line. The shop owner looks for a bookkeeper and drops off receipts and cash register tapes to record the information in the proper columns. Or, perhaps the accountant outsources bookkeeping tasks to those independent, home-based owners accepting more clients.
A project of this nature requires hard work and commitment on your part, so you need to study your options and make a business plan that assists you in operating at a profit. It may be easy to perform record-keeping tasks for others, yet as a prospective business owner, we need to look at the variables in setting up a business for profit.
Perhaps you have always had a desire to
become a home-based business entrepreneur. You work well with
others and perhaps make the boss look pretty good at tax time.
Maybe its time to do something for "YOU" and initiate the idea!
might want to start off small if you are currently working
full-time. Take a "test run", so to speak, on a part-time basis.
The idea is to find the niche in the
market for your area that has a gap.
As for education, most do not have degrees...just years of experience, special course work, community college classes, the talent and the willingness to be an entrepreneur. It's up to you as to how you might use a degree/certification or not (if one is had), yet word of mouth and building your honest reputation is key to a successful venture. Basic knowledge of the industry is needed and the willingness to learn more.
