What business practices can create gaps in your business? What can you do about them?
Reading time: 2 minutes
What do a cafe, an advertising agency, a consulting firm, or a salon have in common? The misbelief that their business can grow without proper accounting practices in place. As markets have reopened in the UAE, the business community expects to see some growth. However, certain practices can harm your business if they are left to persist.
Don't compromise on financial statements
As a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, several businesses faced loss, forcing some of them to shut down. The lockdown restricted the movement of the consumer, shifting most of them to online platforms. As some small businesses chose to manage the books on their own, they could have compromised the accuracy and quality of the financial records. As a result, there are chances of a few errors appearing in the financial statements that impact the business decisions. An accountant helps you organize your financial data and provide insights to optimize your resources. With that help, you can immediately start cutting unnecessary expenses without laying off your team.
Take a break from manual accounting
While hiring someone for accounting may be the last thing on your mind during the pandemic, you should consider certain important aspects. Although manual accounting (using physical books) is economical, how long does it take you to record finances? Is it free from errors? Do you have a backup of your records? Financial decisions suffer when discrepancies appear in the financial statements.
Communicate with your freelance accountant
While nothing may seem wrong with hiring a freelancer, let's dive a little into this. A freelancer will charge you less as compared to a full-time employee. But is there any guarantee of no errors? Do they file your VAT return on time? Do they inform you of all the financial developments that can affect your business? Do they deliver results on time? These features are extremely crucial, especially during a crisis. Make sure you talk to your freelance accountant regarding this.
Spend less on an accounting software
When you buy software, you either need training or have to hire someone to work on it. This looks like a very stressful option, as well.
