You have at a minimum a viable product that you think many people could benefit from, and you founded a startup built around building a solution for this problem.–excellent!
We’re sure that you know that being the founder of a startup is more than just making sure that you have an irresistible pitch deck. Founders also need to ensure that they keep track of their revenue and expenses as this is fundamental to the overall health and sustainability of the business. This is why efficient bookkeeping is essential to startup businesses, and our bookkeepers at Akuracy are here to help.
Bookkeeping is the process of tracking all your income and expense records. As your startup grows, well-kept financial records will help you get the funding that you will need.
Why is effective bookkeeping crucial for your startup success?
An effective bookkeeping process has a lot to do in ensuring that your startup thrives and not just survives. This involves efficient cash flow management, adjusting financial strategies when needed and updating your books frequently.
In order for a startup to upscale, founders need to compare their financial performance year over year, and effective bookkeeping can help achieve this task.
Also, when you have your records up to date, you are able to not only gauge your profits but also identify where you can cut costs, plan for major investments and develop strategies for growth.
Reporting to Investors
Investors want to know how your business is performing for them to quantify their investment in your startup. With sound bookkeeping, you’ll readily have up to date information that you can use to present to current stakeholders and also to investors so you can get the capital that you need.
Be Tax Time Ready
Every business is required to pay taxes; however, tax preparation isn’t that easy. And you know that this is especially true if you’re the founder of a startup.
With proper bookkeeping, through the help of a bookkeeper, you get the peace of mind that your startup is compliant so you’re not at risk of facing serious fines or an audit due to inaccurate documentation.
Is bookkeeping something startup founders can do?
Sure, updating your financial records is something you can handle if you’re just starting. However, as your day-to-day tasks increase and when there are other areas of the business that need your attention, bookkeeping could become a daunting task.
Before transactions pile up and you have a lot of bookkeeping tasks to catch up on, it might be worth considering having someone or a company handle your books.
Begin your startup right–have the right people take care of your bookkeeping needs.
