In the 2015 State of the Startup Survey, Sage found that 36 percent of surveyed small business "nurturers" (third parties such as venture capitalists, angel investors, accountants, and attorneys) indicated they have a somewhat to extremely low trust of financial statements they receive from startups. At the same time, when startups were asked about how they handle accounting for their business, 21 percent do accounting manually on paper, while 27 percent use their own home-grown system.
