Certified public accountant Greg Crabtree and business journalist Beverly Blair Harzog outline “four keys” to profitability and challenge American entrepreneurs and small-business owners to rethink their accounting practices. They show why proprietors should pay themselves a market-based salary, earn a pretax profit of at least 10% of revenue and derive the maximum productivity out of every dollar they spend on labor. This book has a strong US focus, especially regarding the US tax system, but interested non-US readers can also garner some tidbits of practical advice. getAbstract recommends this clear and practical treatise to entrepreneurs, small-business owners and financial professionals.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to use your company’s financial reports to build profitability,
- How to maximize your employees’ productivity and
- How to forecast future earnings.
