Accounting for Startups Key Steps:

Following are the key steps and considerations for accounting in startups:
  • Choose the Right Accounting Method- Select cash or accrual accounting method. Cash accounting records business transactions when cash changes hands, and accrual accounting records them when they occur. Your choice can greatly affect the tax implications you’ll face and how you analyse your financials.
  • Set up a Chart of Accounts- Make an organised and clear chart of financial transactions to track income, assets, expenses, and liabilities accurately.
  • Keep Detailed Records- Maintain a detailed record of all financial transactions like invoices, expense reports, and receipts.
  • Separate Personal and Business Finances- Keep separate business bank accounts and credit cards for personal and business finances to simplify record keeping and ensure compliance with tax liabilities and regulations.
  • Understand your Tax Obligations- You must familiarise yourself with tax obligations specific to your business structure.
  • Budget and Forecast- Plan a budget for your expenses and revenue projections and regularly update your budget according to your real-life requirements. Adjust your new business strategies accordingly.
  • Choose Accounting Software- Use accounting software like Xero, FreshBooks, and QuickBooks for easy and simple bookkeeping. It will facilitate you in expense tracking, financial reporting, and invoicing.
  • Hire an Accountant or Bookkeeper- As your business grows, consider hiring a professional, dedicated accountant like MMBA to handle more complex financial tasks and experience first-class accounting for startups.
  • Track Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)- Identify and monitor professional KPIs relevant to your start-ups.
  • Prepare for Funding Rounds- Startups who need funding from investors or lenders maintain accurate financial records to present financial statements and projections. Investors will be comfortable to invest if you have a solid grasp of your finances.
