Accounting isn't everyone's favorite task, especially around the end of the month. But the fact remains that end of Month accounting routines help ensure that mistakes are caught and corrected so that you have an accurate picture of your business's finances.
By following a regular, documented routine each month, you won't let anything slip through the cracks and you will demonstrate to the company's auditors that you've followed correct accounting procedures.
Keeping a good routine allows you to catch the following:
- bank errors
- incorrect customer payments
