Why do business owners tremble over managing
Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable?
Nothing can have a more devastating impact on your business – your ability to serve and grow – than struggling to collect overdue payments from your customers or clients and then struggling to keep up with your own responsibilities.
“My business interviewed multiple firms, big and small, looking for an accounting firm we could trust and would help us grow. We made a great decision in working with RJL. They are incredible! I enjoy having the peace of mind knowing our business finances are in order. Their team is reliable and professional.”
What is Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable?
Keeping track of your receipts and receivables – their age, size, average time for turnover – reveals important trends for the management of your business. Of course your ability to pay your own obligations, maintaining access to credit, and strong relationships with your suppliers, is tied to collection of receivables.
How can RJL Business Services help?
It’s often in this arena that you’ll find our bookkeepers in conversation with you. For example, keeping you apprised of timely opportunities to make purchases or when belt-tightening is necessary.
Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable are the foundation of your business. At the same time, they probably are the least enjoyable. After all, who likes asking, nudging and maybe even begging customers to pay? Nobody likes having to choose between punishing late payers with halted deliveries or risking more debt from those same customers.
Notably the outcome of either of these alternatives is equally challenging.
How do you continue to fund your own operations, your own financial obligations, your own marketing initiatives to grow, if the receivables never get stamped ‘paid’?
Its important to realize that our bookkeepers’ eyes are continually reviewing these numbers. Furthermore they communicate quickly with Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable professionals on your team.
