A World Without Bookkeepers


September 21st through 25th is Global Bookkeeping Week.

Say what?! That’s right! A week we at TSheets love to celebrate! A week where we honor the people who make payroll possible, beautify our books, and wrangle our receipts. Bookkeepers are pretty darn amazing. We don’t know what we’d do without them.

Which got us thinking . . . what WOULD we do without them?

We dared to imagine.

And it was a terrifying thought, that landed us between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. A journey into the shadows that we’re about to watch. And hope will never be our journey.

Let’s take a look at a world without bookkeepers (dun, dun, DUN)!

Managers would be like . . .

Payroll would be like . . .

On payday, employees would be like . . .

Clients would be like . . .

IRS would be like . . .

Inventory would be like . . .

The budget would be like . . .


Needless to say, we love bookkeepers. They keep us on track, organized and just generally like . . .


Here’s wishing a happy Global Bookkeepers Week to incredible bookkeepers everywhere. Hug your bookkeeper this week (and every other week too!)

    It is all about managing data and setting rules that will post for you. Once this is done you can have a qualified accountant overlooking the books and making adjustments where necessary. No paper, no filing cabinets, no cheques.
