As you review and reconcile your accounts, you’ll need to assign a category to every expense. Some are straightforward. For example, when you pay a lawyer, it’s a legal fee. However, some categories aren’t so simple. Instead of paying a bookkeeper, keep your finger on the pulse of your business by categorizing and reconciling expenditures on your own. These categories can help you visualize spending trends on your profit and loss statement and are especially helpful when tax time rolls around.
