Bookkeeping is critical in any business. Unfortunately, this process is often neglected which has a direct adverse effect on the business.

Bookkeeping involves recording a company’s financial transactions which are the first steps of the accounting process. The whole accounting process involves classifying, reporting and analyzing of data and none of it can take place if there is no organized and accurate bookkeeping.

Here are some reasons why bookkeeping is so important to the health of a business:

  • Better financial analysis and management – Cash flow management should take priority, regardless if you are busy or not.
  • Easier reporting to investors – data can be easily presented to investors
  • Easier business planning – The Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss help to check the financial health of the business and is a good point to start a business plan.
  • Abiding by the law – Having organised books makes an audit or an investigation much easier
  • Fulfilment of tax obligations – well kept books can also help your tax advisor
