It is common for SME’s to neglect their accounts not knowing the repercussions of bad recordkeeping on the business both financially and administratively. Business Owners should be aware that an up-to-date record of accounts provides critical information about the business, often used in planning and decision making.
This area of the business is at times thought of as unimportant until you notice your business has been sliding, or cash flow had been going down. The ‘danger’ of not having updated records is that you don’t know where your business is at given a certain period of time. And you tend to make business decisions purely on gut feel, no factual basis.
We can help you update your record keeping within a 30 to 60 day timeframe depending on your circumstances. Note we charge premium rates for this service and depends on staff availability.
