You asked, so we are providing a guide to help you navigate the waters. Follow this PPP bookkeeping how-to guide to keep your books clean after receiving your loan:
During an audit, financial inaccuracies are typically uncovered that have broader business implications. Whether these inaccuracies are the result of fraud, mistakes, or ignorance, they can have deleterious effects.

Understanding which inaccuracies auditors find most often provides a foundation for self-imposed accountability. Focusing on areas where problems typically exist equips business owners with the information needed to improve financial accuracy and make smarter business decisions.
Furthermore, exercising extra caution around common problem areas protects the integrity of financial reporting, ensuring that the business’s financial position will be accurately represented to potential investors, existing shareholders, and state and federal authorities.
