What is management accounting? Why you need professional advice

Usually, it’s not wise to run your business purely on the financial statements in your annual accounts. It tends to show you what the performance of the business looks like from a historical, set timeframe. Therefore, you’d end up making investment and strategic decisions based on out of date data.

Severe decline or fast growth can be difficult to see just from a set of annual accounts. It is where management accounts come in for you as the owner-manager. They help drive your investment strategies and help you in identifying when you’ll need funding.
