One trade activity which is done in sync with billing, receipts and payment is the work of accounting or book keeping.
Just like generating bills, maintaining books of accounts is equally important for financial discipline as well as business valuation, credibility and overall business growth.
The double entry book keeping in form of debits (DR) and Credits (CR) is a well established and most widely adapted practice.
Business reports such as Balance Sheet, Sales register, Profit and Loss, Ledger, cashflow statement etc. are the direct result of this accounting work.
Needless to say that these rports are the proof of your business growth as well as help in establishing credibility. Growth and credibility go a long way in getting business loans or even investment for privet limited companies.
Having said that, the task of keeping books or accounting is not an easy job.
It is a domain that needs experts to do the double book keeping entry, oten called accounting data entry.
Every trader or business person does not know how to do these entries. Infact most small and micro business owners don’t know what these entries are and how to do them.
As a result, they hire services of an accountant to do this data entry against bills and invoices.
This service is taken over and above the mandatory returns filing service, thus requiring added expense for this added service.
For smal and micro business owners in particular this becomes an unnecessary expense as well as complication, both can and must be avoided.
