A Bookkeeper for My Landscaping Business

Written by Mark Hoppus

I had always dreamed of opening my own business, so it was no surprise when I did that at the age of 20. I know that is a bit young to have your own company, but I knew that I did not need to go to university just to have my own landscaping business. I love being outside, and I had already established myself as a dependable and competent grounds person. I started to get more work, and I knew that I was going to need to find a company that does bookkeeping in Brisbane because it was just getting to be too much for me.

It was nothing for me to figure out wages when I was my only worker. After paying taxes and investing in more equipment, the profit was mine to keep. I started to get too many clients though, and I hired eight people by the time I was 23 years old. I did not feel confident enough to handle their taxes and wages, so I looked for a company that not only does payroll but does bookkeeping overall for companies. I wanted to make sure that everything was handled properly, and that meant more than just payroll.

With my equipment inventory increasing, I needed to make sure I was handling my deductions properly. Taxes can be vicious when numbers are not a person’s friend, and I knew that was one area of weakness for me. I can cut someone’s lawn, I can design their yard to incorporate flowers and shrubs, and I can install waterfalls and small ponds, but don’t ask me to take care of more than just basic accounting needs. I found a bookkeeping company that was able to handle all of my accounting needs, and that gives me more time to do what I do best, which is make people’s yards look gorgeous.
