Do qualified bookkeepers matter?


Prospect with £3 million turnover is looking at Clearbooks as an alternative to Sage.

Prospect also thinks an unqualified director banging in data into Sage is all that is required for accounts. Sigh!

Marshalling arguments as to why a qualified bookkeeper is a better option and Clearbooks, however lousy Sage is viewed, is not the answer to a £3 million T/O growing company. Also why some financial advise is better than a director using Sage as their cash flow stinks (IT company). Not sure they even know that!

I have a number of arguments to bolster me but as tired of repeating the same arguments as to why accountants matter would welcome some good points which as an informative forum will help me convince them but may have points not thought of (or forgotten) but will certainly motivate me in a tired argument.

Many thanks.
