Okay, so you’ve decided that bookkeeping is an important part of making sure that your business is financially successful.  Now what?

When you’re just starting out in business, bookkeeping may be intimidating!  Where do you even start?

The good news is that bookkeeping is pretty customisable so you can personalise it to fit your business needs.  Some business owners do their bookkeeping every single day, whilst others do it at the end of every week.

General Rules of Thumb for Bookkeeping 

While going over your account statements, entering data and doing other tasks may seem like a bore, it’s essential that you do your bookkeeping at least once a month.  Although many financial professionals will advise that you reconcile all financial bank statements even more frequently than that to ensure that your reporting is accurate and timely.

Timely reporting is important because if you’re always up to date on the status of your business finances, you can notice anything strange going on in your accounts before it becomes a problem.  It also allows you to understand how your business is performing and this will allow you to make more informed decisions that can have a huge bearing on the profitability and direction of your business.

Also, if you put your books in order more frequently, you’ll actually have less work to do when you do your bookkeeping.  How?  Because when you let your bookkeeping tasks pile up, it’s more difficult and time-consuming to sort through it all.
