The company’s owner needs a precise and well-maintained set of books to run smoothly and make informed business decisions. Most SMEs have trouble keeping a clean set of books, as this requires regular book updates, proper spending allocation and adherence to commonly accepted accounting principles. A company can penalize itself by overpaying taxes by not having a clean collection of records.
