Why is it important to store company information:

Awareness is important everywhere. It is very important to have company information because what you provide in this section will affect the contact information that appears on invoices, sales receipts, and estimates that you send to your customers. Information is the key point in any business or company which then used to make company big on every platform. If you do not complete the Company set up, then you are likely to encounter many issues and failures. Example: If you sent an invoice to customers who you expect to mail you a check but you did not set up your contact information in company settings then the Mailing address will not include the invoice and your customers will not know where to mail payments to and whom to further contact. This will delay payment and result in a cash flow issue for you or negative cash flow.
