Jun. 07, 2017

Hard-working small business owners like you need to all you can to save money without compromising the quality of the goods and services you provide or receive. Did you know that one way you can do that is by ensuring your financials are kept accurate and up-to-date?

Here are four useful facts about small business financial statements and why having your statements prepared correctly is so important:

Tax returns

Your financial statements may need to accompany your tax returns. If your financial statements aren’t properly prepared, it can cost you dearly at tax time.


If you’re considering using the sale of your small business to fund your retirement, having all your financials up-to-date will ensure that the process is a smooth one. Having your business valued with current financials will assist in gaining a future buyer’s interest when it comes to selling your company.


You need to know how much you are earning and what your overall earnings patterns are to make informed business decisions. Should you cut expenses? Should you try to make more money? Pay off debt? Accurate financials will help you determine which course of action is appropriate.


Good recordkeeping reduces stress. Having well-sourced and accurate financials eliminates the stress involved in preparing tax returns, bank loan applications, and other relevant paperwork.
