All businesses need good management accounts to measure and improve performance. So ask yourself:
"What financial information do I need to run my business?"
You might want to know:
Profit for the month
Profit for the year
Results vs. Budget
Result vs. last year
Action to collect old debtors
Expected outcome for the year

An example of your management accounts
Our approach to producing your management accounts
Non availability of management account could result in the following
Insufficient information reaching the board to allow them to understand business performance
Lack of control over cashflow and slow payment by debtors (pressure from the bank?)
Margins and net profits are too low
Audit and accounting fees are unnecessarily high
Non-financial managers don't have a sufficient view of the financial implications of their decisions and solutions
Decide what information would be useful
Review and improve the data flows going in to the finance system
Provide training to finance staff to ensure that new procedures are implemented smoothly and sustainably
Ensure that users of the new financial information properly understand it and can make decisions using it
Compare financial information with nonfinancial information and ensure consistency between them
Better information leads to better decisions
Higher gross profit margins
Improved bottom line profitability
Increased cashflow, less risk of breaching borrowing limits
Greater speed and accuracy of financial information delivered
No business can function profitably for long if the financial performance is not being measured properly and in good time. Action will need to be taken urgently to close the gap between the information irements of a business.
