Should a Small Business Owner Take Accounting Courses?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.

by Business Dictionary

While having an M.B.A. from Harvard is certainly not a prerequisite for running a successful small business, having some basic accounting skills and knowing how to use accounting software can save a small business owner a lot of money and frustration.

Even if the business owner has the resources to hire an accountant, a lack of accounting knowledge could allow an unscrupulous accountant to commit fraud without being detected for quite some time.

Also, keeping track of money flows and having a good basis in accounting makes good business sense for owners of both small and large businesses. In many ultimately unsuccessful enterprises, failing to keep track of the money often results in the company’s money gradually or suddenly disappearing.

Learning Basic Bookkeeping: A Good Place to Start

Many a small business has failed due to a lack of proper bookkeeping. One of the most important elements shared by all successful businesses of any size is keeping accurate records, which is also a legal requirement.

Besides unnecessary fees such as overdrafts and late charges, a lack of poor records also attracts the attention of the Internal Revenue Service and can be the reason for an audit and other tax consequences. Poor record keeping can cost a business a lot of money and is the first step to ruin in many small businesses.

To help remedy any lack of understanding of basic accounting principles, a course in business accounting will generally include bookkeeping skills. Once you have taken the course, a family member could easily be taught to keep the company’s books until the firm’s profits allow for the hiring of a professional bookkeeper or accountant.

Furthermore, having basic bookkeeping knowledge will give you the possibility of effectively reviewing another person’s work. Having a working knowledge of bookkeeping is an essential financial element for just about any small business owner.

Walter Unger CCIM, CCSS, CCLS

I am a successful Commercial Investment Real Estate Broker in Arizona now for 15 years and I worked with banks and their commercial REO properties for 3 years. I am also a commercial and  Landspecialist in Phoenix and a Landspecialist in Arizona.

1.

WHETHER YOU LEASE OR OWN

NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO EXPAND, UPGRADE OR INVEST.

 

In my opinion we are at bottom of the cycle in Commercial Real Estate in Phoenix, so there is only one way and it’s called we are going up again and now is the time for you to expand, upgrade or invest in Commercial Properties in Phoenix.  The prices on deals I may get you will not be around forever.

 

2.

IF YOU OR ANYBODY YOU KNOW IS IN TROUBLE WITH YOUR BUSINESS, AS MANY AMERICANS ARE IN THE MOMENT, AND ARE ABOUT TO LOSE YOUR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY, PLEASE CONTACT ME.  IF YOUR BANK IS BEHAVING BADLY I MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU GET OUT OF SOME OR MAYBE A LOT OF FUTURE HEADACHES.

 

3.

WAITING TO SELL YOUR LAND ? TIMES CHANGE / IT’S TIME

  We barely could give land away the last few years, but times are changing.  Even in those meager years, I sold more land across the state than most other brokers. Before the real estate crash I was a land specialist in Arizona with millions of dollars of transactions, but then I had to change and also sell other commercial investment properties, which was fun, but I am a Commercial Landspecialist in Arizonal, a Commercial Land Specialist in Phoenix and love to sell land, one acre to thousands of acres.

Since I was a Land Specialist in Arizona and a Land Speciaost in Phoenix many of my clients, Sellers and Buyers remember me and now they are calling me again, so this is the time to get back into land and none of my clients, including future clients, will miss out on getting their best deal.

Also, if you are up-side down on your land, like many Americans, and the lender is giving you a hard time, now is the time to put your land on the market. Lenders are making deals now with short sales.  I have been working with banks for many years – I learned how to work with them.

 

If you have any questions about the 1 to  3 above, about Commercial Investment Properties in Phoenix or Commercial Investment Properties in Arizona,  I will gladly sit down with you and share my expertise and my professional opinion in Commercial Properties in Phoenix or Commercial Properties in Arizona with you.Obviously I am also in this to make money, but it could be a win-win situation for all of us.
