Communication is important in any relationship and when it comes to communicating with your accountant you must be as transparent as possible. That goes both ways so don’t think it’s just down to you – you both have responsibilities to each other to be honest and open.
As the client you have a responsibility of making sure your accountant is aware of all of your ‘financials’ and in turn your accountant is responsible for looking after your books and ensuring you make the best of your finances. In short, getting the best results for your business and always being a step ahead of your finances.
You see, having an accountant is one of the best investments you will ever make for your business and as well as helping you look after your money they make great mentors – make it your business to understand what they do and how they do it and why. If you’re not experiencing that right now, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate the relationship.
