Get Your Books Organized

If you have recently incorporated a new business, one of the first things you should do is make sure your bookkeeping and tax compliance is organized and up-to-date.

Many start-ups make the mistake of thinking there's not much to organize and, quite frankly, they have better things to do. But don't let things slide! If you don't have the time or ability to manage your own books, find someone who does. It's far more time consuming and expensive to get organized down the road than it is to do it properly from the start. (And keep in mind that bookkeeping is a deductible expense.)

Of course, as we mentioned in our first Profit Pointer, being organized from the start also allows you to start producing financial information that can help you run your business.

So if you're just starting out, invest in getting yourself set up right. If you've been around for a while and still haven't tackled your bookkeeping mess, do it now. The sooner you get on track, the better.

Fern Gordon is the owner of The Profit Line. Making sound business decisions means having a clear picture of your financial situation in front of you at all times - yet the daily demands of running a small enterprise can be overwhelming. As a result, financial record keeping and reporting often don't get the attention they truly deserve.
The Profit Line changes all that. We are your bookkeeping partner, helping you stay on top of your finances so you can make better, more informed business decisions.
In addition to taking paperwork off your plate, we also pinpoint the key numbers critical to the performance of your specific enterprise, and make sure you have them in hand whenever you need them.
