  • Why take the time to learn and use financial management methods? Accounting is the language of business, so you and other parties (banks, IRS, etc.) should all speak the same language. Stay on top of your cash flow: Track money in and out of your business. Even a profitable business can go bankrupt if it doesn’t track cash flow. Manage your customers and sales: Track what they are buying, keep records up-to-date so you can contact them Production & Inventory: Know how to obtain goods and services from your vendors and establish credit Once your records are centralized, you can create reports for a variety of important activities: Filing with the IRS Understanding how your business is doing (this will help on pricing products and services) Sharing your financial picture with third parties (banks, SBA, etc.) to secure loans And then of course, tracking the money going in and out of your newly larger business. All companies, even huge established one’s with billions in revenue and tens of thousands of employees rely on financial management for these six areas. Whatever your business, sound financial practices are a toolset that can help you get the greatest return from your efforts.
