All businesses, including nonprofits, need to keep accurate financial records. It is always important to know the financial health of your own business - is your business dying, surviving, or thriving?
When a business wishes to receive a loan, it must submit the necessary financial records to the bank/financial institution. If they do not have the records, then their request for a loan will be denied. Most businesses are also required to file annual/quarterly taxes for the IRS, which cannot be done properly without accurate records.
