Why is bookkeeping required in the pharma industry?

 Bookkeeping is essential in the pharma industry for several reasons:  

  1. Regulatory compliance: The pharma industry is highly regulated, and bookkeeping is necessary to comply with various regulations, such as those related to drug manufacturing, clinical trials, and FDA approvals. Accurate bookkeeping ensures that the company can provide the necessary documentation in case of regulatory audits or inspections. 
  2. Inventory management: The pharma industry involves the production and distribution of drugs, which requires accurate tracking of inventory. Bookkeeping helps to track inventory levels, including raw materials, work-in-progress, and finished goods, and provides valuable information on inventory costs and turnover. 
  3. Financial management: Bookkeeping is essential for financial management in the pharma industry. It helps to track revenue, expenses, and profits, allowing businesses to make informed decisions about pricing, production volume, and profitability. 
  4. Tax compliance: Bookkeeping is necessary for tax compliance in the pharma industry. It helps to track and report taxable income and expenses accurately, ensuring that the company pays the correct amount of taxes and avoids penalties for noncompliance. 
  5. Performance measurement: Bookkeeping provides valuable information for performance measurement in the pharma industry. By analyzing financial data, businesses can identify areas where costs can be reduced, efficiency can be improved, or revenue can be increased. 
  6. Research and development: Bookkeeping also plays a crucial role in the research and development process in the pharma industry. Accurate bookkeeping helps to track research and development costs, which are essential for tax credits and deductions, and helps businesses to allocate resources effectively.  


Case Study

Some services that can be provided by Meru accounting for the pharma industry:

It helps to identify the cost per unit of production, including material, labor, and other costs as applicable to the production, processing, manufacturing, or mining activities of the company.
  2. Accounting for patterns: When a pattern is purchased, the cost of the pattern needs to be amortized over its useful life. Therefore, evaluating the useful life of a pattern and the cost of a pattern are the key things that need to be considered. It requires expertise and an understanding of the sector so that the Pharma industry does not go at a loss.
  3. Management reports and KPIs: Meru Accounting can provide management reports and track key performance indicators (KPIs) for the pharma industry. These reports can help with decision-making and identify areas where improvements can be made.

  5. Profitability per batch: Meru Accounting can help determine the profitability of a specific batch of production. This information can be used to make informed decisions about the production process. We can also help you judge what is profit per batch of production, which can help in decision-making.

We can help with this calculation to ensure that the cost of production is accurately reflected in financial statements. In our more top-to-bottom internet bookkeeping management, we give you the standard costing of the items being utilized amid assembling and in addition to the creation.

What is accounting for abnormal costs?

Accounting for abnormal costs refers to the process of identifying and recording unusual or one-time costs that are not part of a company’s regular operations. Abnormal costs are often unexpected expenses that occur due to unforeseen events, such as natural disasters, litigation, or restructuring.  

We need to carry abnormal costs to another accounting period. So, for this, we need to ensure that they are not taken into the value of the closing stock.  

Our staff is particularly arranged and learned about this dynamic and continually evolving industry. We can also work with pharmaceutical customers that work at a medium, expansive, or independent company level. Regardless of whether you have to plan for tax returns, free your high-level employees of random bookkeeping duties, or find a money-saving solution for your business, we can help. Accounting for abnormal costs involves several steps, including: 

  1. Identification: The first step in accounting for abnormal costs is to identify them. This may involve reviewing financial records, invoices, and other documentation to determine the nature and extent of the costs.  
  2. Classification: Abnormal costs are typically classified separately from regular operating expenses on a company’s income statement. This allows for a clearer understanding of the company’s ongoing operations and profitability.  
  3. Recording: Once abnormal costs have been identified and classified, they must be recorded in the company’s accounting system. This may involve creating a separate account for abnormal costs or recording them as a line item on the income statement.  
  4. Analysis: After recording abnormal costs, it is essential to analyse their impact on the company’s financial performance. This can help management make informed decisions about future operations and identify areas where cost savings may be possible.  

In Conclusion

Bookkeeping is essential for the success and growth of the pharmaceutical industry due to its crucial role in ensuring regulatory compliance, facilitating inventory management and tracking expenses related to drug manufacturing, clinical trials and FDA approvals.  

Moreover, effective bookkeeping supports financial management, tax compliance and performance measurement which provide valuable insights for decision-making and resource allocation. Furthermore, when it comes to accounting methods, FIFO, LIFO, weighted average cost and specific identification are commonly used in the pharma industry. In addition, outsourcing accounting services to specialized firms like Meru Accounting can streamline financial processes letting pharma companies concentrate on their core activities.
