You know how the government asks all those pesky questions when you file your taxes? Wouldn't it be nice to have all the answers on lock-down before you needed them? Keeping your books up to date and having everything coded correctly is the key.
Once your books are in order, you'll be able to see exactly what you can write off.
Budgeting and Growth
Part of growing a business is keeping costs down. Keeping track of costs goes hand in hand with this. If you know how much you spent on office supplies last year, you'll know how much you need to spend moving forward. If you find that you are spending more money in a specific area than normal, you'll know where to cut costs in the next fiscal quarter.
A Profit & Loss Statement (aka P&L) will be your best friend when it comes to planning your next year's budget. When you have a budget in place, you'll be able to see where you can invest more money! Maybe that investment involves hiring more staff. The possibilities are limitless!
Knowing where your money goes is the first step to significant growth.
