With many businesses it can be difficult to know exactly how well trade is going from one month or quarter to the next. Regular Management Accounts will give you that information and become a vital tool if you are looking to develop particular areas of the business, raise finance or satisfy other key stakeholders such as your bankers.
You may have staff within your organisation who can be given additional training in order for this to become an inhouse task resulting in lower costs and improved timeliness of information.
Management accounts can include profit and loss account, split into departments if appropriate, balance sheet, cashflow and other key information such as statistics and key performance indicators,
You can also decide how regularly you want these prepared. Some businesses might want them every month whereas might just choose every six months or at the end of the busy season.
Some benefits of producing management accounts are that much of the leg work has been completed before the year end so there should be a saving in year-end accounts preparation fees and a faster turnaround to complete the annual accounts and tax returns.
