    Unique Tips To Avoid Bookkeepers Who Will Destroy Your Construction Company

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Sep 30, 2016


    This article was written in late September 2016 in response to a trend we see all across the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. It is likely happening everywhere in the world.

    When the world economy collapsed beginning in 2008, a lot of companies went out of business, and one of the hardest hit sectors was construction. Thousands of bookkeepers were suddenly out of a job, and many of them began to freelance taking on a few clients in order to pay rent and keep food on the table.

    As the economy continues to improve a lot of them are finding jobs with contractors like you because of the security that comes with having a stable income. The problem is they have been accustomed to having lots of free time during office hours to chat on their cell phones, surf the web, spend time on Facebook and other social media sites; not buckling down and getting work done, right and on time.

    In addition, most of them have not kept up with the advances in Construction Accounting Technology let alone keeping the construction bookkeeping skills updated.

    What happens when he or she realizes they were earning $30 an hour as a freelance bookkeeper and now they are slaving away in your cramped office with no snacks, beverages, using outdated hardware and software for $10 an hour?

    Bad Bookkeepers Have 38 Traits In Common

    It is important to understand the difference between Professional Bookkeepers, Regular Bookkeepers and Bad Bookkeepers.

    • Regular Bookkeepers learned most if not everything they know about bookkeeping by experience and by letting you pay for their education in the form of excess taxes, fines, penalties, un-invoiced work, overpaying bills and late fees. It is painful for them and you. They have good intentions and do not want to cause contractors any grief and they are sincere with their apologies. Of the thousands of Regular Bookkeepers I have met they all have good hearts and really do mean well.
    • Bad Bookkeepers also learned most if not everything they know about bookkeeping by experience and by letting you pay for their education in the form of excess taxes, fines, penalties, un-invoiced work, overpaying bills and late fees. It is painful for you but not for them. They have bad intentions and will cause contractors as much grief as possible and are quick to blame everyone else when something goes wrong. Of the dozens of Bad Bookkeepers I have met they all have a bad opinion of contractors and business in general.

    Why Bookkeepers Embezzle And Steal From Your Construction Company

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Thu, Oct 03, 2013

    “A recent study found that business school education not only fails to improve the moral character of the students, it weakens it. ..students were asked, if given a chance of being caught and sent to prison, they would attempt an illegal act that would net them a profit of more than $100,000; more than one-third responded ‘yes’."
