Why you need an accountant to do your bookkeeping.    You need to know that your transactions are recorded in the correct accounts, or you could be paying taxes on income that you really didn't earn. A bookkeeper with an Accounting degree will know how to record refunds, sale of assets, purchase of vehicles, set up loans and record the loan payment with interest split out, record deposits, reconcile your bank and credit card accounts so you don't have missing or duplicate transactions. Have your accounts been reconciled?

“I highly recommend Linda Baker from Standing Stone Accounting as a QuickBooks trainer.  She presented several QuickBooks trainings at the Cecil County Public Library and participants inquired regularly when she would be back to present again.  Whether the participants were new to QuickBooks or advanced users, all received valuable information from her presentations.  The handouts she provided enabled users to take the key information home with them, to practice and apply the knowledge gained to their own QuickBooks accounts.  Ms. Baker successfully manages to present her vast knowledge of QuickBooks in an easy to understand, accessible format to an audience of both start-ups, seasoned entrepreneurs, and non-profits alike.”
