Financial Accounting for Small Businesses

Financial Accounts fall into two main categories – internal accounts and external accounts.

Internal accounts are a necessity for most businesses or associations, so that financial progress can be examined and acted upon. ‘Jobs accounting’ or cost accounting is a valuable tool for management to pinpoint jobs that are not profitable.

Cash flow analysis accounts are a very useful tool for monitoring cashflows.

External accounts are for shareholders and other interested parties including those offering financial services. These are necessary for companies listed on the stock exchange and for those companies required by statute to prepare financial statements. These accounts follow a standard format which is now dictated by world standards of presentations.

We can assist you with the following Financial Accounting services:

  • Internal and External Financial Reporting.
  • Statement of Financial Performance Profit and loss statement.
  • Statement of Financial Position Balance sheet.
  • Cash flow statements.
  • Developing and maintaining financial ledger and accounting systems.
  • Maintenance of fixed asset register.
  • Accounting advice.

Did you know? Small businesses with an annual turnover of less than $2 million may qualify for a range of tax concessions, such as CGT exemptions or reductions.

Tax Planning allows you to be informed in advance for all your upcoming tax liabilities, discuss any access to concessions, and ways to offset the cost of buying business assets.

Planning is preferable to a mad scramble at tax time, so book in a consultation today.
