Finding the Right Business Accountant for your Small Business
As a small business owner, you will likely have a very small circle of confidants who you will trust with your personal information. Whether you are a sole trader, or small business owner, finances and accounting tend to fall on your shoulders causing great stress. If this resonates with you, you are certainly not alone. Small business owners are notorious for going it alone until they reach a state of disorganisation and burnout. To avoid this, one of the key pieces of advice for small business owners is to commence outsourcing the timely and important tasks that a professional accountant can assist you with. By taking these items (such as tax and payroll) off your plate you can free up your time to work on other areas of your business.
Outsourcing your Accounting
Outsourcing your accounting allows you to transfer your focus from balance sheets to growing your business. There’s no denying that numbers can be stressful and if you are unfamiliar with accounting systems and processes, it can be something that falls to the side in busy times. This, however, is a big mistake. You must keep on top of your finances to ensure your taxes are lodged on time to avoid fees and errors in your lodgements. This is one of the most important reasons to outsource your accounting. When you have a small business accounting firm on your side, you will be backed by professional processes and systems that encourage streamlined processes and accuracy.
Creating Trust with your Provider
If you have long been a one-man band, it can be difficult to hand over the accounting responsibilities to an outsider. When you find the right accountant for you, you will feel comfortable knowing that they are experienced and skilled in their services. If your record keeping has been lack lustre, or your taxes have fallen behind, their job is to help you rectify these issues. That’s their job.
Focus on your Business
If your accounting duties are taking you away from your business for 1-2 hours per day, imagine what you could do with an extra 5-10 hours per week. Whether you spend this time providing services to clients for added income or spend this time training staff and enhancing your processes, outsourcing your accounting can provide you with much needed reprieve.
