You wear a lot of hats as an entrepreneur, right? If you’re like many small business owners, you bootstrapped your company and you’re used to doing it all on your own. It would be great to add another 5 hours to your day, right? Wrong! Stop the madness and delegate.
Payroll is serious business. You depend on your employees and your employees depend on accurate and timely paychecks. If you’re scrambling to figure out payroll minutes before your staff shows up for work (and their pay), it’s time to reach out for professional help.
Adding a payroll expert to your team, not only saves you time, but it provides peace of mind that payroll taxes are calculated correctly and your staff gets accurate paychecks.
Have you ever had an employee dispute their pay? It can be quite a hassle and let’s be honest, you have enough to do! J. Ott Business Solutions will get it right the first time.
Here are 5 reasons you need to add me to your team!
1.) You cannot clone yourself
Unfortunately, technological advances have not yet come far enough to undergo self-cloning. You’re still only one person. I’ll keep you updated on any new developments. Stay tuned! Until then, hand payroll off to an expert.
2.) Adding more hours to the standard 24-hour cycle is an unpopular opinion
To avoid large-scale rioting, I recommend keeping the cycle of one day at just 24-hours. If you’re up late the night before payday, let a professional step-in. You need your beauty sleep.
3.) Payroll is unfun
Payroll isn’t the most exciting thing to do in the wee hours of the morning just before payday. In fact, it can be quite nerve-wracking; all those tax calculations, withholding, and what does YTD mean again? Let someone else crunch the numbers, make the calculations, and you can just sign the check! Sounds nice, right?
4.) You don’t have time to learn everything so you just wing it
Ok, let’s not do that! Here’s my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, we need to talk. Accurate payroll is a must; your staff depends on it. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you definitely need my help. Paychecks are too important to your staff!
5.) You like being the cool boss
Cool bosses have awesome employees. A great way to be a cool boss is to get payroll right, the first time, and on time! When an employee can trust that their paycheck is accurate, they trust their employer! Team loyalty for the win!
It can be difficult to hand over the reins to a professional but delegating is part of growing your business. Let’s talk about sensible solutions that help your business flourish.
What would you do with the extra time? Strategize new ways to expand your business? Enjoy more time with your family? I’m ready when you are, let’s talk!

Like many business owners, you might be DIYing absolutely everything in your day-to-day operations but when is the right time to delegate some of those daunting tasks (like bookkeeping or payroll) to a professional? How about now?
Small to medium sized businesses need sensible solutions that will help them save time AND money. Did you know that by hiring a remote controller (that’s a fancy way of saying professional bookkeeper) you can save your business 1000s of dollars annually?
If you’re tired of being bogged down by paperwork, missed financial deadlines, payroll, and poor tax planning it’s time to get better help!
And if you need a few more reasons, the following five should tip the scales - drum roll please…
Top 5 Reasons You Need a Bookkeeper and/or Payroll Expert - NOW!
1.) Reduce the Cost of Financial Obligations.
You might think that DIYing your books will save you money but the truth is a professional can save you even more! Accounting mistakes are easy to make, deadlines get missed, and payroll mistakes often cost businesses, and their owners, tons of money every year. STOP THE MADNESS! Be smart - delegate this to a remote controller, remote bookkeeper, or a payroll expert.
2.) Fine-tune Your Work/Life Balance
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate but a bookkeeper can free up time and money so you can focus on your loved ones. When was the last time you took a family vacation? Save yourself from the inevitable burnout and hire help.
A bookkeeper can help you gain a clear perspective on the state of your business. Your cash-flow tells the story of your business. What goes in, what goes out, what you can expect, it all needs to be at your fingertips. A professional bookkeeper gives you the hard data you need to make decisions that will help your business grow and thrive!
4.) Peace of Mind with Tax Filings & Planning
An audit from the IRS can disrupt your entire business' day-to-day operations for weeks, if not months. Avoid this nightmare by adding a professional to your team! Tax planning is essential for making sure you’re getting the deductions you are entitled to and that you’re paying the correct amount owed. Who needs an IRS headache? Definitely not you - you’re much too smart for that!
5.) Maintain Your Cash Flow
Late payments, payroll mistakes, and late receivables all affect your overall cash flow. A bookkeeper's responsibility is to keep the pulse of your business so these oversights do not happen. Want to rest easy at night? Add a pro to your team that will give it to you straight - every single time!
Every bookkeeper’s goal should be to consistently create innovative and sensible solutions so you can enjoy the financial clarity that allows your business to thrive.
