Bookkeeping is one of the most important processes of your accounting and financial department. Bookkeepers record, organize and maintain a company’s financial transactions; including purchases, sales, payments, receipts and earnings. All types of enterprises, including startups and large businesses, need access to accurate, complete and up-to-date bookkeeping.

Bookkeeping is one of the most important processes of your accounting and financial department. Bookkeepers record, organize and maintain a company’s financial transactions; including purchases, sales, payments, receipts and earnings.

All types of enterprises, including startups and large businesses, need access to accurate, complete and up-to-date bookkeeping. Poor bookkeeping can hurt your business in several different ways:

 

Credit Issues

If you’re having bookkeeping issues, your company can face debt problems. Missed or late debt payment can take a toll on your business credit report. Not to mention, late debt means excessively high interest rates and unfavorable payment terms.

Maintaining current, accurate cash flow is crucial for your bookkeeping department. This will allow you to keep track of all receivables, payables and the company’s financial situation (cash and credit) in general.

 

Legal Problems

Poor bookkeeping can cause a host of legal problems for your business. Your creditors can sue your business if you don’t pay them. Also, you can get in trouble for improper deductions and late tax payments. Late tax filing leads to heavy penalties.

 

Sales and Profits

Improper bookkeeping can cost your business significant amounts of funds. If you don’t pay your suppliers on time or pay incorrect amounts, that’s going to hurt your company’s financial credibility.

You might end up losing your suppliers, which will affect your production, output and sales. Don’t be shocked if your customers go to your competitors.

 

Decision making

Accountants use bookkeeping data to make financial reports, including budgets, general ledgers, balance sheets, cash flow statements, profit-and-loss statements, etc.

Without bookkeeping, you won’t be able to make financial decisions. Bookkeeping can help you identify financial strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for your business.
