I have been struggling with the bookkeeping aspect of our business. Our accountant passed away a few years ago and prior to that he was going to retire and had merged with another firm. He and his wife had been our team for accounting and bookkeeping and things stayed that way when he announced retirement and merging, while moving his clients over and working inside another firm until retirement. Unfortunately our dear friend was diagnosed with cancer and passed away. Now with things under the new firm, I really need bookkeeping help in qbo. I dont want to use thier online bookkeepers although I do use them periodically to find things in the program. Our biz had been struggling with needed employees and I cant do just about all of it but am stuck doing bookwork ends of things. How do you go about hiring someone for a position such as this and what about confidentiality? I am solo in our office doing phones, emails, insurances, insurance audits, (at least 3 a year bit counting additional outside auditors) payroll, payroll taxes and sales taxes ,HR, scheduling, you name an office function and I do it because there is no one else. I do all this, merged accountants just have a look see and approve. IT, parts searches for equipment, emailing and talking to clients but cell service is lousy here so stuck by landline. Need assistance in this area but out of my league in knowing how an accountant would go about hiring and recommending a bookkeeper. I desperately need to free myself up from this but dont know how to approach or even what standard of pay would be. For someone that does it an easily finds their way around the program it probably wouldnt be very time consuming for them, for me, its a major task, its not what I do. Thank you for insight and expertise.

"I can do just about all of it" meaning crews work, I put cant...meant I can.
