  2. helps to identify budget surplus and deficits.By accounting for your money after each financial period,you get to know the various expenses incurred and account for the available income
  3. Budgeting.To identify how one or a company has been able to use their finances according to the budget provided after each financial period.

  1. There may be possibilities surplus and deficits which may interfere with the activities of the company.
  2. Partners or members of the company are not in a position to corporate since some of the money used or earned may not be accounted for.
  3. One may start deviating from their budgets and plans because they no longer keeps their records hence they are not aware of how they use their money and in what quantity (budget becomes useless)
