Things to be examined before selecting a bookkeeper in Dubai

Before selecting a bookkeeper, the firm must assess the financial resources which it can discharge for accounting. Then it must appoint the bookkeeper according to it, i.e. within the budget of the firm. The firm must do thorough research regarding the service renderer, such as the goodwill, credibility, feedback from their customers, experience, liabilities and consistency etc. so that they can trust and handover the accounts to them with full confidence. 

The bookkeeper must be trustworthy and loyal towards its clientele; it should not expose any confidential information to any other parties other than the firm. If the service provider deals with many clients, then it should be able to manage the activities of every one of them smoothly and fulfil their objectives. There must be a continuous flow of communication between the firm and the bookkeeper, to update the firm with every problem and change in the transactions, also helping them to know their financial position as well as the cash flow including the profits and losses. If the bookkeeper is specialized in more than one task then makes the firm easy to approach for other services such as tax consultancy, payroll services, bad-debt accounting, VAT registration etc. Before outsourcing the bookkeeping, the firm must make sure that there is no hidden cost or any other expenses which may incur in future.
