Keeping your tax information on papers may appear missing some essential points like surcharge, bank charges and interest rate and some credit card charges. But when you prepare computerized accounting files, all major and minor details are kept up to date.
Though big business owners keep well-maintained computerized records, but small business owners may not do so. It is especially advisable to these small businesses that they start maintaining their books on computerized accounting software. Apart from the complete tax record, there are many other uses of accounting software which can help them to track your financial transactions.

- Formalized financial statements: The accounting software will provide profit and loss statements and balance sheets that help you to estimate your business’ growth and actual financial position.
- Track of customer’s history and aging: Using the computerized invoicing feature will help you track your customer’s purchasing and payment habits.
