Business Bookkeeping

I have a day job, but I recently started a small business On the side. I didn’t know anything about Accounting and my friend, Roland, said he would give me some advice.

Roland: So, the reason that you need to do your Bookkeeping is so you can manage your Cash flow. Even if you have a lot of orders, you may still have problems paying your bills.

Magdalena: I see what you mean. Is this the kind of Ledger I should be keeping?

Roland: Yes, definitely. You want to list your Debits on this side and your Credits on this side. This will help you figure out important things like your Break-even point, Your Assets and Liabilities, your Administrative expenses, And whether you’re staying within your Budget.

Magdalena: I wish I had an Accounts payable department to help me with all this. I don’t even know how to create a Balance sheet.

Roland: It’s not that hard if you use the right accounting program. The first thing to do is to keep track of your Expenses. How do you do that now?

Magdalena: Oh, I have a system. I keep all my Receipts in this bag.

Roland: Oh. Well, it’s good that you’re keeping your receipts but you’ll have to keep better track of them. What would you do if you were Audited by the IRS?

Magdalena: Don’t even mention the IRS! I’ve got enough problems without worrying about them!
