Accounting Systems, Cash Management and Financial Analysis


How to Account for your Business is an important aspect of turning an idea into a successful business venture. Since many prospective business owners consider themselves poor "accountants", a solid accounting system is essential, if you want to control your business. These systems make your life easier and your business venture more secure. Moreover, your accounts will give you a reasonably acurate view of what your business produces and what it is worth.

The accounting function is not just "bean counting" or "something the government wants, so that it can collect its taxes" from you. It is, in fact, your primary means of control over your business venture.

A basic accounting system has to consist of a General Ledger, an Accounts Receivable and an Accounts Payable Ledger. From these, via a Trial Balance an Income Statement or Profit and Loss Account and a Balance Sheet is extracted.

Most generic small acounting systems, such as those produced by Intuit (Quickbooks), the APS system or the other ones shown below are fully integrated and, provided you enter all the transaction data into the ledgers, produce the Income Statement and Balance Sheet automatically. Often these systems also have the capability to add on Stock Control, Point of Sales and Payroll Systems, if you need them. This makes operating a business a whole lot easier.

The more sophisticated systems even allow you to enter your budget and then produces a variance analysis showing, where you have and, where you have not, reached your budgetary targets.

The best-selling small business financial software, can save you time managing your business finances. Most of them are easy to learn and use – no accounting knowledge is necessary. With most systems you will be up and running in a short time so that you can focus on building your business instead. Start printing checks, tracking expenses, and creating invoices in a very short time.

Understanding Financial Accounts and especially your Billing Process and Cash Collection Process is one of the most important aspects of your business. Most business owners who do not understand that, run into financial difficulties. A solid accounting system, thus is a real "must" for the astute Financial Manager. "Meaningless Numbers" and ratios come alive!
