here's what I think about clients

I think

that clients don't have the bandwidth to learn/absorb/process all that we take into consideration when doing their books,

that

the more we (bookkeepers) can keep things focused on just what they deal with in their day-to-day,

the more likely we'll be to gain compliance on the client's piece of the bookkeeping workflow.

In other words,

the easier we make it for them to continue to do their job,
the better we'll be able to do ours
