There’s a good chance you have been slowly coming to the realization that you need to get the accounting and financial side of your company in order.
Maybe you've been losing credibility with your partners in the financial community because your financials are not tight. They know your financial statements are not really accurate. They know you are slow in providing financial statements each month. They usually have to ask for them because they are not published quickly or consistently each month.
You can get by with that for a while, but when times are tough, or you need capital, that approach will no longer get it done.
Problem is fixing the issue takes some time. And time is not on your side if you are experiencing a cash flow problem or you need cash to take advantage of a unique opportunity in the market.
It also costs you more to fix it when you have a gun to your head.
So you can wait until it becomes a huge problem and someone forces you to do it. Or you can do it now and be smart about it.
You will be fixing a weak link (which makes your company stronger almost instantly).
You will be showing everyone in the financial community that you run a quality operation and you understand how important it is to them that you have the financial side of your business under control.
