What is bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping refers to a daily process of recording financial details and transactions. To become a financially stable business, you need to take care of the following tasks:
- Recording financial transactions.
- Posting debits and credits.
- Generating invoices.
- Keeping and balancing current accounts, historical accounts and general ledgers.
- Completing payroll.
What is the difference between bookkeeping and accounting?
A bookkeeper is responsible for putting the right information into the right column when any money comes in or goes out of your bank accounts, while an accountant analyses the information. The accountant would prepare the financial statements, give financial advice and sign off accounts.
For the accountant to be able to organise financial records properly and balance finances accurately, they need accurate information from the bookkeeper. So, if your accounting is going to be as good as it can be, your bookkeeping has to be too.
How bookkeeping with Osome works
When you start a business, bookkeeping services in Hong Kong is the last thing on your mind. We wanted to offer bookkeeping for startups that would free the entrepreneur from the routine and help you see the real-time picture.
We created software that processes docs automatically, while our experts back the algorithm and answer questions. Now outsourcing bookkeeping makes sense: you get to see your books every day, not in the end of the month. You won’t have to waste time weeks after to find a missing invoice — we chase every document within 24 hours, while you can still recall what it was. Most importantly, you get to see your financials daily. We gather all the data in a dashboard. See you bank balance, all the bills you have to pay and the ones that your counterparts owe you, and plan your cashflow.
We do bookkeeping online on a convenient platform. All your documents get stored in one place, making it easy to find them. Uploading won’t take much of your time, either. Simply take a picture with your phone, or drag and drop a file on your laptop. Better still, you can forward an email with invoices attached — we will open and save it in your account automatically. You just watch it magically appear in the right place, with the right tags, matched to the correct transaction.
We know that offering bookkeeping services for small business means you don’t have much time for it. So, we make sure we don’t waste it. Whenever you have a minute or a question, we answer fast. Our experts respond in a chat 24/7 and within 15 minutes, even late at night and on weekends. We know your business hours are dedicated to doing your business. We’re here to help take bookkeeping off your plate.
How does your pricing work?
We build our packages based on your company's size: you pay for the amount of transactions you have each month. This way you don't have to pay for services you don't need and it's easy to switch when you want to scale.
Are you going to work with my accountant?
We love to work alongside accountants and accountants love to work with us. It is our job to record transactions, collect all corresponding documents. The accountant takes it from there: calculates taxes, comes up with tax optimization ideas, prepares forecasts, etc.
Will I have to do anything myself?
You need to send us your receipts in invoices in any format you have them, like scans or pictures on your phone. If anything is amiss, Osome platform makes it easy to track them and gently reminds you to send them in. Everything else we'll do ourselves.
How do you do bookkeeping for small business?
Send us your receipts and invoices in any format they have them, like emails, scans or phone pictures. If anything is amiss, Osome platform highlights the transaction and sends a notification straight away. You won’t have to spend hours at the end of the month trying to find long-forgotten documents.
What bookkeeping services do you provide?
We collect all supporting documents and categorise them into corresponding accounts. Every day we connect to Xero and your banks to reconcile incoming documents with transactions. If a document is missing, we reach out to you on the same day. This way you won’t have to wait for the books to be ready at the end of the month: you can always rely on the data we provide.
Are bookkeeping and accounting the same?
Bookkeeping and accounting are closely connected, but they’re two different things. Bookkeeping takes care of tracking and sorting the documents. Any time you spend, lose or make money, your bookkeeper adds it to the books. Your accountant then builds reports using these numbers. The government requests these reports to calculate how much tax you owe and whether you are exempted from some of it.
What does bookkeeping mean?
Bookkeeping means literally making sure invoices and slips don’t get lost. In business, every time you move money or assets, like when you buy or sell something, there’s some sort of document tracking that action. It is bookkeepers job to collect, categorise, and reconcile them.
Why bookkeeping is important?
The bookkeeper is in charge of document organisation. If your docs are in chaos, you might miss an invoice, or assign a wrong account. If that mistake goes into your reports unnoticed, you might file taxes incorrectly: pay more, or worse, get fined. If the accountant finds the mistake, it will take time to go back and fix it, which might result in paying a hire fee.
What bookkeeping software do you use?
We have our own platform that you can access from a desktop or mobile device. You can send the docs easily, have your files stored and sorted out, and ask questions 24/7. We are integrated with Xero — an elegant accounting solution for small and medium businesses used by 2 million clients worldwide. Osome is Xero's platinum partner and an approved app. The migration takes just a few minutes and we make it happen ourselves.
Is it hard to migrate to Xero from Quickbooks or Sage?
Transferring to Xero is easy and free. You'll need to download a CSV file containing your data from the current provider and send it to us. We'll take care of the rest: upload it into Xero and set up your new account.
