Understanding Your Business' Accounting and Cash Flow Process

  1. 1. Understanding Your BusinessAccounting and Cash Flow Process
  2. 2. Consider the following scenario. You started a business. It is a small business, but it is selling the products that you love. Maybe it is even a specialty business, and you have had a great deal of success from your surrounding area. You are not very good with numbers, so you have made the decision to leave all of the money issues up to your accountant.
  3. 3. Maybe you even hired an accountant first thing, and you have never looked back. This way, you can concentrate on your actual business and not all of those pesky numbers. It seems like the perfect plan, does it not? As long as things run smoothly, you may feel like you made a good choice. However, once something goes wrong, you will quickly realize that you made a very big mistake.
  4. 4. Suddenly, you are wishing that you had paid betterattention to the money side of your business. Maybe you would have been able to see the problem coming, or you could at least be better prepared for the situation.
  5. 5. The first thing you should do is set up weekly meetings with your accountant. During these meetings, take the time to look at your companys numbers and ask questions. If you do not understand what you are looking at, always ask the accountant to explain. Before long, you will have a much better understanding of your companys finances.
  6. 6. Second, you will need to begin formulating pans. What will you do if your company does not reach their cash flow goals for a week or a month? What will you do if your business sustains way over the goal?Once you better understand your companys finances, you will be able to do much more with your business. You will be able to handle problem times with ease, and you will be able to make the most of the best times.
  7. 7. Finally, you will want to continue to be aware of the numbers of your business. Keep in mind that your accountant may make a mistake just as anyone will. Therefore, understanding your finances will help you better keep an eye out for any human error.
