Having a good accountant is key to any small business and your accountant is not just a sounding board for financial matters.
It can also influence other major decisions, reduce possible risks, advise on growth possibilities, compliance with current regulations, and enable possible tax discounts – just to name a few.
It is a given that a good accountant can look after your books, do your tax returns and hopefully make sure you are paying the right amount of tax.
It is so easy to get overwhelmed with regulation (especially at the moment when things are changing all the time). The most valuable thing your accountant can give you though is time, time to focus on what matters to you the most, running your business. The purpose of a good accountant is to take hassle away from you and that’s especially important for small businesses.
So, a good accountant is essential for any small business, we don’t even mind if it’s not an AIMS Accountant (although we would prefer of course if it was!)
