It can also help you identify areas where you can claim tax breaks early allowing you to plan your expenses and investments well in advance. Bookkeeping can also identify the profits from various segments of your business and the major expenditures. These can be used to tighten the belt on outflows early where ever possible giving you a better financial foundation for greater success.
