  • Accounting plays a vital role in running a business because it helps you track income and expenditures, ensure statutory compliance, and provide investors, management, and government with quantitative financial information which can be used in making business decisions.

  • Making Sure All Your Charges are Correct---Most people like to know how much money they currently have, which means they check it on a regular basis to verify charges. Think about it: when is the last time you logged into your bank account? What were you there for?
  • Accountants also are consistently working to maintain and expand the financial health of businesses. They do it several ways—just like you do. Investments, savings goals, analyzing, debt control and profitability are just a few key concepts in financial planning. Every time you sit down and think about how you’ll have the money to do important things you are  using accounting skills
  • If you're the type of small-business owner who prefers to spend your time cooking food or making pottery to working, you may resent the time and effort you have to put into accounting. However, without basic bookkeeping and accounting, your company will flounder. You need to keep books so you can understand what's going on with the company financially, and so you can pay your taxes and remain in the good graces of the government agencies that regulate your business activities
  • Accounting also tells you when your operations tend to be busiest and when you spend the most money on expenses such as taxes and licenses. If your books are current and accurate, you are able to use the information they contain to make better choices and earn a better living.
