You can’t know where your business is going if you don’t know where it stands.
We believe that no commercial loan application should be denied. This does not mean that everyone who asks should get approved; it means that if you are applying for capital, you already know that you qualify. If you are one of the 60% lacking collateral or with a low credit score, you should not be working on applications, you should be addressing these issues. And if you you are one of the 30% with weak performance or, worse yet, of the 19% who don’t know why their loan was declined, then you need to focus on your firm’s financial oversight and reporting.
An accurate accounting package allows you to capture the data you require to know your company’s operations and finances. Simply put, it helps you see how you’re doing. If you need capital, you know immediately whether you qualify for a loan. You know where you need to focus, what you need to emphasize, and where the strengths and weaknesses of your application lie. Ultimately, accurate accounting and bookkeeping can help you:
- Price your products or services.
- Assess your profitability.
- Identify excessive or unnecessary expenses.
- Know your cash flow.
- Comply with the requirements of tax agencies.
- Secure capital.
