New entrepreneur – Why we need accounting for our business?

New entrepreneur – Why we need accounting for our business?
I always thought that every entrepreneur understand that they need accounting to manage their company well. However I received many questions from new entrepreneurs on the same thing.Why do I need accounting when I start my business?
My answer is always YES you need accounting.
Being an entrepreneur you need to know what is going on.
1. How much is your sales ( detailed report)
2. What product you sell ( detailed report)
3. How much is your cost? ( detailed report)
4. How much is the gross profit?
5. How much is your overhead? ( detailed report)
6. Who owe you? Detailed invoices ( detailed report)
7. How long have they owed you? ( detailed report)
8. You owe who? ( detailed report)
9. How long have you not paid him? ( detailed report)
10. What is your cash flow?
11. What is your balance sheet? ( Asset Vs liability)
12. Are you improving ( Dashboard, Financial ratios, trend)

Without Accounting, you will not be able o answer that questions.
Research shows that Successful companies are those that have detailed reports,
they know what is going on in detailed.
