Reading time: 3 minutes
We once heard from a small business owner that he had forgotten to record some of the transactions and couldn't update his records later. It gave him quite a painful time to correct everything. We realized that there could be others who face a similar issue as well. Do you, as an entrepreneur, remember to record small transactions as well? Are you aware of its importance? Maintaining your books every day and recording every transaction is essential for the business's financial health. If this is not done routinely, can you take the appropriate steps to improve the product/service, pricing, etc.? How would you know if your business is performing well? How would you know if the new strategy you adopted is yielding good results? A wise entrepreneur knows that updated records will help his business grow. What are some of the benefits of updating accounting records, you ask?
When you have updated records, you know where your money comes from and where it goes. It helps you monitor your income and expenses, draft a budget based on the financial statements, and keep an account of every single penny. Accurate records also act as proof of all the expenses incurred.
Knowing financial position
Bookkeeping gives you financial statements that help you recognize the opportunities for investment and growth, assist in applying for loans, present a clear view to the management about the business.
When your bookkeeping records are updated, you'll be on time to face the tax season. Smooth and timely VAT filing is a reality. When it's time for an audit, you'll have accurate records to present, saving you from penalties.
