Publisher's Summary

If you want to learn about bookkeeping without reading a boring textbook, then pay attention...

Bookkeeping has been around for hundreds of years.

Although keeping a record of your income and expenses may seem straightforward, bookkeeping today involves many complexities.

The larger your business, the more challenging your bookkeeping tasks become. 

Today, we often see small business owners handling their own finances, but most owners of large companies hand over their accounts to professionals. 

In this audiobook, you will discover all you need to master the art of bookkeeping.

Bookkeeping is vital for the financial well-being of any business; nevertheless, it may not be cheap if you opt to outsource it to a professional organization. For small business owners, dedicating a large portion of their earnings to bookkeeping tasks is far from ideal.

If you would love to take care of your own business bookkeeping in a cost-effective way, this audiobook is for you. Even for business owners who can afford to hire an accountant or a bookkeeper, learning the basics of bookkeeping is essential. This comprehensive guide will explain bookkeeping simply and efficiently. 

What to expect in this audiobook:

  • The basics of bookkeeping
  • Critical tips and tricks on how to select a bookkeeping system
  • Powerful strategies on how to set up your books
  • Simple and easy methods to close your books
  • Nine amazing tools to streamline your bookkeeping procedures
  • Proven ways to get started with bookkeeping
  • And much more!

incredible!

This book does a great job of breaking down the foundation principles of bookkeeping in simple, plain language. It gives you comprehensive tools on how to essentially set up your books and create a bookkeeping system. What is also great is that there is a breakdown after each section of a review of the different chapters of all the bullet points and keynotes. This book is helpful for the beginner or an advanced pro, I recommend checking it out!

My husband works in a small business. So, the accounting of said business is important to us. This author comes across as highly knowledgeable and expert. He outlines the important aspects of accounting and budgeting. What I found super helpful.is that the author provides realistic examples in a wide range of scenarios.

lovely

If you own a small business from your home, or even if you work for a small business, this is a great place to start to learn all you need to know about accounting. One of the main reasons small businesses fail is because of bad financial planning or handling.

fabulous!

There are short and clear explanations of various types of accounting (cash, accrual, management). There is a chapter that explains the basic accounting principles. These are words that didn't make sense before I listen to this (going concern, matching principle, economic unity, etc.). It gives information about the GAAP (Generally Accepted accounting principles.)

This book is great

I have taken economics and finance but haven't taken accounting classes at all. I wanted a book that explained accounting principles in a way that I could understand them even though I haven't taken a class in it. This book is short and clear. Good work by the author.

In the event that you searching for the fundamental data on accounting than this is the production for you. I have a BS in Accounting from the stone period of school. As I prepare to go into my own business; I chose to do an audit of material on accounting. This audible helps me a lot.
