Congratulations! You’ve started your own business and you’re ready to take on the world.

Taking care of the business paperwork is what we do best. In today’s online world, starting your own business is easier than it has ever been, but keeping accurate financial records can quickly become complicated.
Small business bookkeeping is like going to the dentist, no one likes to take the time to do it, but neglecting the issue can cause serious damage. This is why many business owners outsource their bookkeeping. It’s easy, simple, and reliable so you can focus on building your business.
What is bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping services is more than running QuickBooks and crunching numbers. It is what gives you an accurate representation of your business success and keeps things running smoothly throughout the year.
Every business is required to keep accurate financial records for fiscal responsibility as well as for investment and tax purposes. No matter what industry you are in, a small business bookkeeper makes sure you have an accurate representation of essential financial documents such as cash flow, revenue, expenses, etc.
Certain types of business may require additional types of bookkeeping. For example, a retail business would need to keep track of the financial end of inventory, manufacturing and depreciation whereas a real estate business would have different needs. Breeden’s Bookkeeping handles all types of bookkeeping for both large and small businesses in a wide variety of industries.

How Is a Bookkeeper Different from an Accountant?
Bookkeeping and accounting are often used interchangeably, but they are actually quite different. Bookkeeping refers to the creation of financial records and reports. Accountants are trained to interpret and analyze those reports.
Bookkeepers and accountants are both certified, but by different processes. With Breeden’s Bookkeeping, you get the best of both worlds. Our professionals are certified CPA’s, current members of the Kentucky Society of CPAs, and hold a Professional Bookkeeper Certification from Universal Accounting.
