Accounting Tips: Reassess Your Accounting Methods as Your Business Grows

0 min read

As your business grows, assess your accounting policies and procedures. Do you have sufficient space for documentation retention? Is a review sufficient, or should you seek an external audit? Is maintaining inventory on a spreadsheet as beneficial as in enterprise resource processing software? Are you capitalizing assets, and are your depreciation periods appropriate?

Are your materiality thresholds outdated? Should your income statement begin breaking out specific expense line items instead of aggregating costs? Do you have sufficient reserves regarding cash balances, and is your estimated bad debt account reflective of your higher business? These types of questions should be evaluated periodically as your company expands.
