Running your own business is time consuming, which means quite often, you will not have the time to keep on top of your finances yourself.
If your business doesn’t receive payments from your customers, your cashflow will be impacted and may mean your business will struggle to pay its suppliers or – in extreme cases – your staff's wages.
To remedy this, the use of bookkeeping software is recommended.
By inputting all the sales invoices, whether they are prepared within the software, manually or imported from another app to the bookkeeping software, you just need to allocate the receipts from your customers against the outstanding invoices to find out which customers owe you money at a particular point in time and how much.
By keeping your bookkeeping up to date, you have meaningful data to be able to chase your debtors at your earliest convenience to avoid any negative impact on the business’s cashflow. Statements showing outstanding balances can easily be sent to your debtors straight from the software itself.
We can assist you with the set-up of the software and provide training for you to do the bookkeeping yourself. Alternatively, at TaxAssist Advisors we can do the bookkeeping for you and let you have the relevant information to be able to chase the outstanding debts.
