Small business bookkeeping is important in many ways. First and foremost, proper books are important so that businesses can prepare more accurate financial statements for their tax accountants, investors, and other interested business parties. Small business financial statements are an important indicator of how healthy a business is and whether it is profitable. These financial statements also used for generating information required to complete your annual tax return (personal & corporate).

Operating a business in the Greater Toronto Area can get expensive, so it is important to have a good grip on your expenses to know how much the business is bringing in, or whether it might even be losing money. These services can also help you make timely payments to vendors and employees.
The problem with bookkeeping is that it can often become a job of its own and may require small businesses to hire a full-time employee. You must learn how to do bookkeeping correctly, otherwise it is of no benefit to you. This includes accurately tracking all accounts a business carries, making journal entries, and reconciling the business’ general ledger. Other methods of tracking a business’ assets, liabilities, and equity exists. Hiring someone to perform these small business bookkeeping services is often a good idea for a busy business owner who wants to focus more time on their products and services rather than the accounting of a business.

Where possible, it is often a good idea to separate functions and authorization abilities so that someone is always double-checking the other person’s work. By doing so, you are minimizing any risks of deposits not being recorded correctly as well as, ensuring all invoices are properly tracked.
