London, UK (02/03/2009)
Qualifications are important to distinguish a superior service from other services, especially in when it comes to your bookkeeping which forms the important the foundations of your accounts.
On top of this, in the financial management industry it is even more important that business owners confirm that their finances are being taken care of by a person who has a qualification that grants them membership to an appropriate regulatory institution to ensure your sensitive details are secure.
Therefore, when enquiring into a potential new service provider or with your current bookkeeper, it is essential to find out whether they possess the relevant qualification. Without knowing this, it is impossible to know whether the service you are being provided is being produced by a person who holds the skills and the knowledge to produce your books to the standard you require.
