Bookkeeping is an essential accounting practice within any business, and it is imperative that it’s done right
The introduction of Making Tax Digital has put more of a focus not only on record keeping, but also on how those records are kept in order to be HMRC compliant.
Bookkeeping is the classifying, interpreting and reporting of a company’s financial transactions in a systematic way. The information is used in accounts preparation and provides the source data for financial reports and other business operations.
Whatever the size of your organisation, a bookkeeping service is essential, forming a fundamental and now mandatory part of your business’s foundations. Detailed and thorough bookkeeping ensures you track and manage your business’s finances and keep up to date with incoming and outgoing payments. It can also act as an insurance policy against any financial event that may affect a business, such as theft.
Good bookkeeping practice provides reliable, accurate numbers, allowing you to gauge the financial health of your business. From this, you can then evaluate your performance and make operational and financial decisions accordingly. You can also create tangible reports for a range of decision makers inside and outside the business, including potential investors and stakeholders.
But bookkeeping isn’t always as straightforward as it may seem. Simply recording your finances can quickly become a complex web involving tax, assets, loans and investments, devouring valuable time that could be better spent elsewhere within your business.
