Hi, I'm Shawn Herring, your small business coach. So, what are the steps in recording an accounting transaction? The very first - and the most important - is to make sure that you have a mechanism to actually record the sale. The next is having a front end. That means that when a sale happens, you have a way to record that, and then when you actually collect the cash, you have a way to kind of tie them together. So, the most important part is to have a mechanism to collect the transactions. The next part is to have a way to reconcile the sale and the actual collection of the cash. I'm Shawn Herring. Thanks for joining me.
