What is personal accounting?

Understanding personal accounting

Personal accounting is as simple as keeping track of your household expenses. A typical household often has several bank accounts, a home loan account, a couple of car loans, two credit card accounts, a cash account, an insurance account, superannuation accounts, and maybe a shares investment account.

How do you keep track of all of these? Most people don't, with any degree of efficiency or effectiveness. But for a small business owner, personal accounting might be particlarly important to understand.

If you can't keep your personal accounts in order, it stands to reason, your business is a huge risk factor. Taking control of your personal accounting with personal accounting software that monitors your expenditure and keeps you aware of the state of your various accounts, could become the difference between success and failure in your business.
