Accounting Reports and Systems
The measure of performance of a business is in its financial reports. These allow the owners to understand what return they are making for their efforts in the business and/or what return they are earning on their investment in the business.
Business improvement strategies can only be evaluated by comparing financial reports after implementation with financial reports at the start.
Other decisions, such as buying or selling the business or obtaining finance are also dependent on accurate and timely financial information.
The money owed to a business by its customers needs to be monitored with accurate and timely invoices and statements sent to them. Without this, the business’ cash flow will not be maximised.
For these reasons business owners need to have reliable and accurate financial systems and reports.
