Question : “ What should I use: single-entry or double-entry bookkeeping?”
 
Answer :When you start a small business, one of your first financial decisions must be whether you are going to use single or double-entry bookkeeping. If finance isn't your strong point, you're likely not looking forward to dealing with the accounting side of the business.
