Payton Approved currently
uses the accrual basis of accounting to track its finances.

This accounting method helps the business stay organized
and project for its future. It also allows the business the ability to seek and
take advantage of opportunities as they become available.  

In addition, by using the accrual basis of accounting,
the business is more equipped to manage any financial challenges that may
arise.  It also helps support responsible
practices within the company by maintaining and properly managing the company’s
revenue and expenses without risking the success of the business.

Accounting Process and Internal Controls for Cash

Peyton Approved uses several strategies to ensure responsible
financial accounting practices.  These
strategies include, but are not limited to: consistently journaling accounting
transactions, creating monthly and quarterly accounting cycle reports, following
all steps of the accounting cycle report process, creating monthly and
quarterly income statements as well as implementing accountable internal
controls and separation of duties.  These
strategies have been selected because they keep a business organized and they
help recognize any opportunities for improvements.  These strategies also work to show the
transparency of how the business is operating and helps reduce or avoid any
poor business practices.  The overall
accounting process consists of recording entries as soon as a transaction takes
place.  All statements are produced and
reviewed on a monthly basis to help reduce and/or avoid any discrepancy when closing
out accounting cycles.  The company’s cash
internal controls include a separation of duties by having various employees handle
the accounting cycle process.  Each
employee is responsible for a different step in the accounting cycle avoiding
any opportunity of one employee having too much control over the financial
aspects of the business.  This allows the
company to have accountability
of its financial position at all times.  All
employees responsible for a portion of the cash internal controls are hired after
a full background check has been conducted.  To ensure minimal or no mistakes, all
transactions are recorded as soon as they are received.  The company also performs a daily count and
balance, as well as surprise audits.

create its products.  The company also
maintains a high customer satisfaction rating and provides excellent customer service
and client relations.  Currently, the
only aspect the company needs to improve on is to hire more employees in order
to continue delivering its excellent product and customer service.  

The company’s financial
statements show the company’s financial position by disclosing its performance and
indicating where improvements need to be made. In other words, by using the role
of ratio analysis, the financial statements are able to show the companies’
ability to pay its long and short-term liabilities and its profitability.
