There's a big dark cloud hanging over you. It's not actually hanging over you. It's hanging out in the back of your office, in a closet, on the top shelf. It's a stack of loose papers, receipts and invoices thrown into a box in no particular order. They cry out for attention, for purpose, for organization, but they won't get it. Why? Because It's Hard. Bookkeeping takes knowledge and practice, and for the procrastinator this can be especially debilitating. Though there are plenty of reasons not to procrastinate the more paperwork aspects of running your business, two big ones stand out.
The first is obvious. That big dark cloud doesn't go away if you just ignore it. It keeps getting bigger and darker. It should be self evident that the snowball effect makes getting down to business harder and harder as time goes on, but the less obvious point remains that if you only get your accounting affairs in order once or twice a year, your skills become unpracticed and you are required to re-learn them every tax season. This actually becomes a bigger detriment to your productivity because, aside from making your office work into a chore, poor record keeping obscures your ability to forecast which makes planning for growth, or even sustainability, extremely difficult.
That big box of paperwork, the gravity well that sucks all the joy out of running your business, is also a wellspring of bad decisions. Even if it requires enlisting the help of an accountant, you'll eventually thank yourself for the clear path ahead of you. Call (615) 962-9991 Tax Leaders Inc today to solve all your problems.
