Many Accounting Firms focus on Cloud Accounting, Payroll, Accounts Preparation and Tax Returns. These are all very important, but as your business grows, you may need more from your accountants.
- Developing Your Business: Accountants in Practice occupy a privileged position; over many years they develop a valuable insight into why some businesses are successful, whilst others stagnate or fail. A good accountant would be happy to share his or her experience to help you maximise profit, plan for growth and perhaps even position your business for sale;
- Tax-Planning: The UK is widely thought to have the most sophisticated tax system in the world. Every year in his Budget, the Chancellor of the Exchequer adds more legislation increasing the complexity. Your accountant should help you steer clear of the various tax traps and pitfalls and plan for you to enjoy the rewards of your business tax-efficiently;
- Communication: There are some accountants that recognise the importance of regular communication. They are happy to dispense advice on routine matters at no cost and do not charge for telephone calls and meetings. They recognise that they need to know what is going on in your business if they are to come up with thoughts and ideas that will be of benefit. If a particular project is identified, then they will give an estimate of fees before the work is carried out.
Accountants should be more than number-crunchers. They should take the time to understand you and your business and actively contribute to you achieving your goals.
