Bookkeeping Accounting Financial Terms Glossary

Bookkeeping Accounting Glossary of Financial Terms

We created this bookkeeping accounting financial terms glossary because its useful to understand the commonly used financial terms. These are a few important examples however its by no means a complete list of all bookkeeping accounting terms. It’s helpful to know a balance sheet from a balance date or forecast from your end of year financials etc.

Without a basic understanding of such, running a business will be challenging at best. We’ve kept the financial terms as relevant as possible with respect to our client base. For example we don’t concentrate on dealing in property accounting. Therefore there’s little to no point including financial terms specific to that field here.

We also didn’t include a number of the fairly obvious bookkeeping accounting terms like budget, debt, interest and tax. We may alter or introduce other examples in the future should we see the need. If you’d like to see more bookkeeping accounting financial terms within this glossary then please let us know. We’ll even add the four excluded above if you’d like to see them listed.

Expansion – Sensible Business Practice Part 5

Expansion by Duplication

While a percentage in business manage to stay afloat without proper systems, a number don’t. Do you want to flounder around fumbling your way through simple tasks or have a functional approach? Want to evolve, keeping up with the times or stick with things as they are, falling behind the competition or progress and go through sustainable expansion?

What do you feel would happen if one tried expansion by duplication of non-existent or poorly constructed, untested systems? Would such likely be conducive to a successful practice? No, in short these businesses will typically struggle and ultimately fail. Unfortunately too many in this situation tend to seek help when it’s too late. This can occur because they never saw it coming.

More often than not in this situation it’s reasonable to assume better planning and understanding was lacking. Disregarding Sensible Business Practice is seriously unwise. The more invested cost/debt wise the more serious it is. To take poorly executed systems or a business with little to none and expect to  duplicate such is economic suicide.

The term economics comes from the Ancient Greek οἰκονομία from οἶκος (oikos, “house”) and νόμος (nomos, “custom” or “law”), hence “rules of the house (hold for good management)”.
