Paper Bookkeeping

RBDO Staff presented an afternoon training session about the development of a paper bookkeeping system. 

Many small businesses and entrepreneurs lack the accounting resources to properly account for company funds and expenses.  These businesses and entrepreneurs have to keep a money management system to account for their income to taxing authorities.  Some banks will also require businesses to provide financial records as part of their lending programs.
