Nobody wants their business to stand still, right?
As a Business Owner, you’re always looking to improve your profitability, your performance, your product line, your processes etc., etc., etc…
So, what’s your plan?
Without accurate, reliable information and the means of measuring your performance, you have no way to gauge your progress – you can’t move forward unless you know where your business stands and whether you’re moving in the right direction.
The whole process starts with accurate bookkeeping, performed by an accomplished professional, which will allow you to:
– Take stock of your position
– Set reasonable goals
– React to challenges (those inevitable “bumps in the road”)
– Foresee potential problems
Other important areas where up-to-the-minute bookkeeping is vital to the growth and efficiency of your business include:
Financing – When your growth plans mean you have to raise additional capital, you need your books to be accurate and up-to-date. Weekly or monthly bookkeeping services will ensure you are in a position to provide potential investors with professionally prepared, current financial statements which will enhance your credibility as a sound investment.
Cash Flow – Regular, timely posting of your bank transactions will enable you to not only track your current liquidity position, but also to forecast future cash flows and anticipate and react to possible problems.
Compliance – Penalties for late payment of state and federal taxes and filing of returns can be very costly. Up-to-date bookkeeping will give you the peace of mind that you are always in compliance and your bookkeeper can even help out with filing and payment of payroll and sales taxes etc.
Performance Measurement – Financial reporting is so much more than looking at the bottom line. Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) indicate how well your business is performing compared to other businesses in your sector and enables you to react and adjust your operations to get back in line, if necessary. Accurate, current financial reports are a vital part of making sure you are in a position to react and remain efficient.
