A recent study found that between 70% and 80% of small businesses fail within their first five years. 

The reason? 

A big contributor to this failure rate is poor internal monitoring mechanisms that leads to poor planning and goal setting. The answer to this shortcoming is having proper management accounting techniques in place.
