As we approach the end of the tax year and make plans for the next, it is a sensible time to review exactly what is going on with your business, customers and suppliers including service providers like your accountant, making sure they are providing the right service for you.
This may seem like an obvious statement, and something that business owners or individuals should be doing on an on-going basis, however this may not be the case for everyone.
In a role as essential as managing your financial matters and accounts, it is important to have a professional service provider who you are comfortable with, who understands you, your business and your requirements.
The result is a tailored service that should provide all the support you need, giving you more time to focus on other tasks such as the day-to-day running of a business.
A few points you should consider when you review your accountant are:
- Does your accountant have the level of knowledge required to meet your needs – if your requirements are complex, can they access the specialised knowledge required to meet your needs;
- Do you want an accountancy practice that can just manage your accounts or do you want more support – to provide additional advice and services such as assisting in tax planning or payroll;
- Check the fee structure for your accountant to make sure you know what you are paying for their services, when you are expected to pay and if the arrangement suits you.
