Management Accounts

Management Accounts Management accounts are prepared with the aim of helping managers make important business decisions, whilst having the benefit of full financial information. Many small businesses rely solely on the end of year accounts to understand their financial situation and as a result probably miss a number of opportunities or make bad decisions, simply because they did not have access to accurate, timely, financial information. Management accounts can be produced monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or any other period that is relevant to you. Most businesses receive a Profit and Loss and Balance sheet relating to the previous accounting year, from their accountants.

The only problem with end of year accounts, is that the first period on those accounts can be 20+ months from the current month, which makes the information less useful as a tool on which to base business decisions. A lot of small businesses only use their end of year accounts to compute their tax liability and have to pay a lot of money for the privilege! Financial Dashboards Dashboards are a popular method of displaying financial information in an easy to understand format. MoneyManager+ will work with you to understand what key figures drives the performance of your business, which we call "Scorecard Figures" and then present them in an easy to understand format - for example charts and graphs.
