FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is a local bookkeeper better?
Perhaps if you have an existing relationship with an all-star. However, it can be difficult to find the perfect bookkeeper that has landscape specific industry knowledge and understands how a lawn care business operates. 99.99% of questions can be answered virtually and we answer all our support emails within 24 hours.
Is an online bookkeeper service like Gusto and QBO better?
If you use the online bookkeepers assigned to you they will likely change frequently and when you ask for support it could be one of thousands of online reps from countries on the other side of the world. We focus ONLY on the landscape industry and our Team is all working together in the USA which results in more consistent support when you need it most.
Can I use Lawn Care Bookkeeper for only payroll?
Yes. You can choose one or both of the services we offer 1.) Payroll and/or 2.) Quickbooks Bookkeeping. If you want to categorize your expenses, create your balance sheet and quarterly reports, we can just do the payroll. Remember your time is valuable and spending hours trying to balance accounts or ensure that your financial statements reconcile is not the best use of your time.
