Accurate, effective, timely bookkeeping is an absolutely necessity in order for any business to survive, let alone thrive. This is especially true as a business grows larger or more complex. It's critical to be able to follow every transaction undertaken by the business, to understand the impacts of different lines of business and other factors on the bottom line. Bookkeepers must be honest, vigilant, and sure to follow these do's and don'ts.
