If you’re a small business owner, chances are good that you are devoting lots of time to bookkeeping that you would rather be devoting to other aspects of your business. At Cove, we can help!

A bookkeeping service for a small business provides essential accounting support by systematically recording and organizing financial transactions. While every business has its own unique bookkeeping needs, many are universal, regardless of industry or field. For most small business owners, managing bookkeeping is a task they have neither the bandwidth or expertise to effectively manage.
