The author does a great job.

It does a good job on breaking down the straightforwardness of keeping simple records and what you should look for if you pay somebody else to do it. Just be warned if you are expecting examples on how to do your books this is not the book for you. The Author basically explains what to look for and how to do it.

I liked this book

I liked this book, it did teach me a lot. The book is broken down into to several chapters outlines get the importance of pre planning for your taxes. I have owned a small business previously and it did not survive, some of that was due to the lack of pre planning on my part.

This actually helped break things down in plain language that was easy to understand and follow. Glad that i received this product for free and gave it an honest try. For those just learning the small business routine like myself (still in start up phase) this book is one i will most likely be turning back to so that i keep focused on the bottom line and keep things balanced. Thanks.
