One of the cornerstones of good business is accurate and informed asset management. No matter how good your business strategy is, you will never be able to hold on to your operating capital without careful management of your finances.
The danger of using spreadsheets
If your office is using a product like Microsoft’s Excel to manage finance lease, AASB16 or hire purchase agreements, you will definitely run into issues. Spreadsheets are extremely expensive to develop. They are prone to errors. How often do multiple people need to access the data and someone makes a mistake that cannot be traced. Spreadsheets are hard to learn, hard to use, and full of human errors.
It is also rare for spreadsheets to provide extensive reporting of payment forecasts. Not to mention, notifications of upcoming payouts and refinancing needs to be done manually. When depreciation rules change it can be expensive to update and test spreadsheets to reflect the new rules. Some businesses actually need to bring experts in, just to enter new leases and process monthly journals.
