The easiest way to record your financing progress is to use a checkbook. Categorized each financial record and determine if it is an income or expenses. Deposits must fall under income category and checks must fall under expenses category. The only problem with this strategy is that you are completely using cash-basis accounting manually. This will only count income and check. Other factors might be neglected.
With Cash basis accounting, the precision of tracking down financial progress is compromised. This is not an ideal option if your financing progress is too complicated. So the inventory will suffer as it will result to inaccurate and not reliable information.
Cash basis accounting is only good for small business with predictable financial progress. If your business is growing, accounting becomes more complicated. There are a lot of accounting programs that you can use to create precise and reliable tracking of your income and expenses.
