There are many ways to make bookkeeping quicker, the most important are:
-Having the right bookkeeping software specific to the outcomes of why the client needs bookkeeping.
Knowing the bookkeeping software well
-Being an expert in bookkeeping, so you know where you can make efficiencies in the entries, and where you cannot (most bookkeepers aren’t able to do that and need an accountant to review what they are doing in this area)
-Getting whoever gives you the bookkeeping records to do so in an efficient manner, specific to the type of entries, entiity and nature of the trade
-Getting log in details to banks etc (read-only access of course) so you can by-pass your clients/staff to get what you need efficiently.
