Consider a scenario where your startup is on its way from idea to formal business. There are many, many things to think about and consider. And one of them may just include that all-important decision of when to bring in outside experts to assist you with some of the operational functions that go into running a business.
Those functions almost certainly include the financial aspect of your business. While you may not need — or want — an accountant, you could at least consider a bookkeeper to help with the various financial aspects. Your only other alternative is to become a bookkeeper yourself so that you understand every aspect of your business! And that’s just not realistic.
