As the Afrikaans saying goes: Skoenmaker hou jou by jou lees! The one common denominator in small, medium and large business, whether butcher, baker, candlestick maker, estate agent, medical doctor, retailer or detailer – is its bottom-line. A wise man once quipped ‘the bottom line is exactly where it belongs, at the bottom right-hand corner of a piece of paper. If you do everything right by your business the bottom-line will look after itself’.

At the foundation of all business’ finance function lies its bookkeeping and reporting process. In business it is the streamlined flow of financial information that enables higher value financial activities to support the company’s growth, while the lack thereof hinders the ability to make quality financial decisions.
