Accounting and Bookkeeping is crucial for the success of any business and is essential
in analysing its financial growth.
Accounting is the systematic process of recording, analyzing and interpreting the financial transactions. By law, all businesses are required to submit their accounts to the Income Tax (IT) Department. Several start-ups tend to ignore this requirement early on and then scramble to put together their accounts when they are raising funding or being acquired. Maintaining the books in-house certainly is a tedious and possibly expensive affair, but getting it done would significantly reduce pains in complying with the requirements of the IT Department; it gives the promoters and shareholders a good sense of how the business is doing and proves eligibility for loans in later years, and even satisfies investors.
