Accounting in business finance is one of the most important aspects of running any business. It becomes even more important for small and micro businesses as often resources are quite minimal. Let’s first understand accounting a bit better.
To make it simple for you accounting is a process that helps in better understanding all aspects of the financial data of your business. Accounting of business finances can offer some interesting insights about any business.
How accounting can help your business?
Well, the simple answer would be by,
- Analyzing the performance of the business better
- Helps in making informed business decisions
- Even managing your business finances smarter
How most businesses manage their accounting currently
To save time and conserve resources, often small business owners overlook accounting of their business finances. Accounting if done right it can save a lot of money whereas if done wrong there is no stop to money-draining out.
Let’s look this by 2 examples:
Mr. Gupta(if you remember the Kirana store owner from Chandni Chowk) managed all his business transactions on a loose bill and bahi khata. At the end of the month, he is covered in bills and invoices. The most dreaded thing is his difficulty in understanding his handwriting. Thereby Mr. Gupta is stuck in a loop to manage his business finances. This is quite a nightmare for his business.
There is also one Mr. Rahul who has an electronics and mobile shop. Since he was technologically savvy, he used his smartphone to record business transactions. But at the end of every month finding the messages for payment and matching with invoices didn’t make his life easier.
In both above-mentioned cases, we saw that the way of managing an account is neither efficient nor smart. So coming to the big question: “How to manage business accounting better?”
Well the solution for you is very simple and with it, you can also #BusinessKaroSimple
