Wrong Data in Your Quarterly Reports

3 Repercussions of Having the Wrong Data in Your Quarterly Reports

Your organization’s leadership expects that your quarterly reports are consistent and accurate. The most critical role of your accounting team is the ability to produce accurate reports whenever they’re needed. Developing, producing, and distributing these reports must be proven and effective because the health of your business depends on it.

In spite of this, mistakes happen. Data can be inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistent. It isn’t just a headache for your accounting team–it can have critical effects on your business far beyond that.

Below are the top three repercussions of having the wrong data in your quarterly reports.

  • Unsound business decisions

Your executive board uses the information from your quarterly reports to make informed business decisions. If that data is unknowingly incorrect or incomplete, this can have devastating effects on the business decisions you make. Especially if sales, profits, and losses are inaccurately recorded, how can you ensure that revenue is on track?

  • Tax fees, penalties, and audits

If your data isn’t compliant, you could face tax fees, penalties, and audits. This puts your business in a vulnerable spot–not only are your executives potentially making unsound business decisions based on inaccurate data but now you are paying fines on top of it. This affects your reputation and your bottom line and is avoidable by taking the right steps to ensure data integrity.

  • Support for your company depends on it

Your advisors, vendors, investors, and even your customers depend on the accuracy and transparency of your quarterly reports. If your reports are inaccurate or incomplete, you may lose out on crucial support and profits. Just as no man is an island, no business is either–it is this support that helps you keep your doors open and stay profitable, so don’t risk it.
