To successfully run a business and be in control of your business, you need to have access to updated financial records, data, transactions, sales, profits, reports, and much more. This makes accounting an indispensable tool for any business that must thrive.
The importance of accounting in business management can never be over-emphasized; it is the tool that helps in keeping track of organizational revenue and expenditures and it also provides financial information to aid management in their decision-making.
Accounting practices usually produce three separate financial statements:
The income statement is an accounting instrument that provides profit and loss records.
The balance sheet is a financial instrument that provides details about the business's financial position with the date.
The cash flow statement is a financial instrument that provides financial records that correlate the income state and balance sheet. It captures a record of cash generated and spent over a period.
Maintaining up-to-date and clean financial records is essential for the success of any business, for reasons discussed as follows:
Accurate evaluation of Business Performance

The financial record provides insight into the financial status of your business. It is the financial tool for determining if the business is doing well or not, and it helps folks in managerial positions make important business decisions, such as business expansion, recruitment, retrenchment, and many others.
Ensures Statutory Compliance
Maintaining good financial records helps enhance legal compliance irrespective of changes in government personnel, government policies, rules, and regulations.
Facilitates Budget and Future Projections
The bedrock on which businesses thrive is a reasonable budget and future projections, both of which rely on updated and accurate financial reports.
Facilitates Filing of Financial Statements
Updated financial reports are required by all registered businesses in order to make their financial statements known to the Registrar of companies and for appropriate tax remittances to the necessary government agencies.
Accounting plays a critical and indispensable role in day-to-day business running, a function which is only made possible by the skills of professional accountants. The role of professional accountants in any business or organization can never be over-emphasized.
