8 Small Business Bookkeeping Blunders During Startup

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jul 24, 2013 7:00:00 AM

Running a bookkeeping consulting firm geared towards small businesses teaches you a lot about business startups. We see all sorts of missteps, whether it is right from the beginning or several years down the road. It is very rare that a business will do everything right during the startup phase. The list of tasks that need to get done to get your business up and running can be overwhelming. No matter how experienced you are in business you can’t be an expert in every facet of launching a business.
