Small Business Bookkeeping Made Simple

Small Business Bookkeeping Made Simple

If (like me) you’ve ever found yourself pounding a fistful of Advil to quash your bookkeeping headache, I’m sure you’ll be as excited as I was to discover Bench – a new subscription service designed to help small businesses cope with the hassles of budgeting, tracking expenses and preparing tax reports.

I just checked out their website, and what can I say? They had me at, “Let’s agree to never talk about QuickBooks again” …

Digging a little deeper, I discovered that the service includes monthly financial reporting, direct interface with your CPA at tax time, and Q+As with an expert whenever you need it. Their team is rigorously screened (including criminal background checks) and entirely based in North America, so you don’t have to be afraid of your financial data being sold or sent overseas.

Possibly best of all, I fell in love with the Bench About page – see here – a classic example of what it looks like to build a relationship with your prospective clients by offering transparency and a glimpse into your company’s culture. So now, I’m not only feeling a “glory hallelujah” over the service they offer, but additionally I have a giant branding crush.

I’m not signed up as an affiliate or earning any referral credits by saying this, but –

If you’re ready to invest a modest monthly fee into having your bookkeeping hassles lifted from your shoulders…

If you want to work with a company that employs actual humans you can speak with (as opposed to subscribing to yet another software program that ultimately leaves you still “doing it yourself”) …

If you want to know you’re not undermining the value of someone’s professional skills by paying them with a Saltine cracker and a song (which so often happens on sites like Fiverr and Upwork) …

– then I recommend checking out what Bench has to offer: a highly needed service at a fair and reasonable rate!
