For most business owners and their support staff, these tasks are the necessary evil of doing business, often put off until the last possible moment in favor of revenue generating activities.
Technology innovations have made it possible to reduce time and effort expended on bookkeeping keystrokes.

This may be an opportunity for your accounting staff to benefit, too.
