Accounting Made Easy by the Accountinator

Home business, small business, and large corporations all need accounting services to one extent or another.  Larger business will have staff accountants while small business may have one or two bookkeepers and a home business has, well, you!  As the chief cook and bottle washer of a home business, the owner handles the production, marketing, sales, shipping, accounting, and more. Outsourcing accounting functions is an option of course, but many start up businesses want to save money and owners prefer to control all aspects of company operations.

How much about accounting did you learn in high school or college?  A few terms here and there and the difference between accounts receivable and accounts payable.  If a few accounting classes were taken, one might understand the difference between a balance sheet and a trial balance report or be able to define and describe E.B.I.T.A and G.A.A.P.  Lost yet?  I have taken a few classes in accounting and know little more than terms and roughly how they apply to accounting.  When I do need help and terms explained in plain language, I turn to a friend – Mark Holtzman –  that puts terms into plain and clear English on his blog: .

Mark’s basic tenet is pure and simple: “Do-it-yourself accounting – quick, cheap and easy.”  Here at Homepreneurs we understand and agree with quick, cheap, and easy.  The concept has guided us from the beginning and continues to this day. We are constantly on the hunt for free or low-cost services that can help you start and run a home business. The Accountinator is one of – if not the – most valued informational site we’ve run across.

When you need tips on starting a business, Homepreneurs can help.  If you need to know the language of business and all things accounting, I’ve not found a better source than Mark Holtzman’s Accountinator.  In his several times per week postings, you’ll find wisdom, advice, humor, and education.  Check the site out, you won’t be disappointed.

    Dion Shaw over at Homepreneurs is one of my favorite bloggers. At the risk of looking like a log-roller, I have to say that he runs one of the most inspirational and well-informed websites for budding entrepreneurs that I’ve seen. He took the time to write these flattering things about the Accountinator. Thanks, Dion.

  5. This is especially important because so many people are forced to work several jobs in this economy, just to make ends meet.

    It’s a well known fact that every business on the planet will need some kind of accounting and software system in place from the very first day they begin operating. This is because the information presented by management accounting is proposed for internal viewers and is not available to the public like the information presented in financial accounting (Accounting for Management, 2009).

  6. Linked to this is the question of the nature of the audit and how it
    is conducted. While it can be used for private
    company audits as well, public company audits require
    a more comprehensive inclusion of evidence and testing.
    We will not give you this information scare you but
    to motivate you.
