In a recent news for small business, said in a release that when tax time comes around, small businesses will find many benefits to keeping up-to-date records of client transactions and expenses. It will also allow the company to see if a client owes money and see how far behind they are on the payment. This can identify patterns of who is having trouble keeping up with payments and make sure that the small business gets the money owed it.

"Current ledgers will account for the funds flowing in and out of the company and allow for key people to make decisions on a daily and quarterly basis," the company said. "Small business bookkeeping accurately indicates whether a customer is carrying a balance on their line of credit or is past due on any payments. A company needs this information to effectively respond to patterns of late payments and nonpayments."

By having records in order, small business owners will be able to see where they stand. It can be useful to chart a company's growth with statistics to back it up.
