We all know that the global real estate industry is booming at a promising rate, the companies (both especially small and medium-sized) in this industry have been experiencing some challenges of late, including the credit crunch, reduced construction, reduced prices of commercial properties and reduced lending to name a few. As per the report published by Forbes, the real estate is expected to perform even better in 2019, which means the global real estate industry revenue is projected to increase in the next 5 years.
As the real estate industry offers plenty of opportunities for high-volume transactions, it is mandatory that the companies associated with it keep a check on the inflow and outflow of money, almost on a regular basis. Small and medium-sized often find it difficult to maintain books of accounts themselves. Professional Bookkeeping Services can help them stay on course and paint an almost accurate picture of their financial standing.
Follow These Tips to Efficiently Manage Your Bookkeeping Tasks
- Timely Update Your Accounting Books: Bookkeeping is a fussy process; hence, it is necessary that all your books are updated at regular intervals of time to minimize error and offer the greatest visibility. Small and medium-sized companies often overlook or disregard bookkeeping tasks because of the tedious nature of the task. If it is not possible for you to maintain the account books for yourself, then it is advisable to outsource your bookkeeping tasks to firms like “Affinity Associates”. Bookkeeping services not only will not take care of your basic bookkeeping needs such as account maintenance, ledger services, forecasting and budgeting, but also cover a lot of accounting and financial related.
- Maintain Your Records Perfectly: Not only in real estate industry, but in any industry, it is necessary to maintain the traction records perfectly. But, as the real estate industry deals with the large volume tractions at a fast pace, it is vital to have a pristine record book to avoid any accounting errors in the future. You can maintain your records in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and maybe a tryst with QuickBooks or more sophisticated, complex options, such as FreshBooks, BusinessWorks, Buildium, etc.
- Make Use of Latest Technology in the Industry: Every industry is experiencing the technological drift; therefore, it is a smart decision to step up to the trending technology. You can make use of bookkeeping software such as Zoho Expense, Expensify or Abacus to help monitor data, keep a close track of records, and store eons of data in a fashion that is easily accessible. Moreover, you can also make use of apps like Evernote to create an efficient online filing system and do away with age-old physical filling cabinets. Technology makes data management fast, easy and convenient.
- Keep the Professional and Personal Transactions Away: It happens that many of your family members are part of your firm, as a result of which, the thin line of distinction between “professional” and “personal” diminishes slowly. Anyone who maintains the bookkeeping for the real estate business should maintain even the small business transactions such as telephone bills.
