Businesses need to have a primary contact for financial matters whether it is within the company or a contracted service. This is especially true for new companies just starting out. There are many accounting programs that can be purchased and claim to be user friendly. However, without a user with knowledge of accounting principles and theory the results can come back to bite you in the case of an audit. The problem with these programs is they are dependent on the information that is entered. A management science term known as “garbage in, garbage out” describes this event the best way. If information is entered incorrectly according to theory, the software does not know that and will produce an output that is misleading. Having a professional in your corner is the best way to ensure that proper financial reporting is achieved.
