A survey completed in 2015 showed that almost half of all small business owners loathe bookkeeping. Handling finances, banking and marketing were also unpopular items on the to-do list of most small-business owners. There are several reasons why small business owners do not particularly enjoy bookkeeping:
First, bookkeeping can be hard, and if you did not go to school for accounting, you may not know how to perform accounting related tasks.
Second, bookkeeping isn't really fun. Bookkeeping shows the truth of how your business is performing, and sometimes the truth may not be good news.
Finally, bookkeeping can be time consuming. Small-business owners generally wear many different hats for their business, so adding bookkeeping to the mix can add more hours to the owners schedule.
These difficulties can make it easy to make bookkeeping errors, and even small errors can result in large expenses when tax season rolls around. Therefore, it is crucial for small business owners to find a bookkeeping method that works for them. Apart from avoiding mistakes when filing your tax returns, accurate bookkeeping will provide you with the information you need to make informed business decisions and grow your bottom line.
