That time of the year again! Run around frantically, get the stock figures, who owed me at year end (what’s that again?)? Who did I owe? Who owes me?
Accountants: “Don’t forget to roll-over your accounts” – HUH?

Annual financial statements are seen by most business owners as a necessary evil, a grudge purchase, a frustrating and annoying process which usually ends in spending money – money to create these meaningless financial statements then more money on taxes!!

This is NOT the purpose of financial statements! Most often, as the owner of the SME - Did you know that YOU are the MAIN user of the financial statements and as such, the statements need to provide USEFUL information TO YOU about the performance of the company over a period of time (AKA income statement); where the business stands – do the assets exceed the liabilities? By how much? Can I buy that asset I want to? Cashflow is seen as the most complicated document and as such is often overlooked yet, when done accurately, provides very useful information.

Can you really be in control of your business if you don’t understand what has happened in order to plan where you are going?
