Running your business efficiently includes your ability to understand the books your bookkeeper keeps for you and how to instruct your accountant.  You will ask your accountant to prepare monthly or quarterly management accounts for you.  Your job now is to interpret the results so that you can prepare strategies for your business.

An efficient business will have a comprehensive set of accounts recording their day-to-day business transactions. This data will help you set realistic goals and objectives and convert them to effective corporate strategies.
