Managing a small business isn’t easy and regardless of the size of your business, efficient bookkeeping practices are essential to keep your business running smoothly. Keeping a close eye on your day-to-day business operations can help you become a small business success story.
“Often owners of small business keep financial information in their head, this is one practice that really needs to change because it has potential to become the sole reason for failure of business. When you don’t have a system and some processes in place, you are soliciting chaos, you are inviting trouble and are building on a weak foundation, unpleasant surprises can pop up, goals can be easily missed and important paperwork forgotten.
Getting a better handle on finances can help you to make and keep long-term goals, smooth out the seasonal ups and downs of your cash flow and maybe improve your profits. It will also help you to stay out of legal trouble with the tax authorities.” Sara Clarke: Partner, Martin Clarke and Associates; Owner, The Business Tutor.
