How to get the most from your accountant- Tax time

The best accountants add value to your business – here’s how to make sure your accountant is ticking all the boxes.

1. An accountant that understands personal wealth

Your accountant should advise your business on its needs, ranging from start-up costs to business succession planning. However, here at Stafford Accounting we can offer more! You see behind every business is a person and a family. This creates opportunities to put in place structures to save you and your business tax, time and stress.

 

2. Gives proactive advice

If you’re finding your current accountant is telling you about the problem after the fact, then your accountant is not doing his job. At Stafford Accounting we strive to achieve proactive advice through three fundamental factors. These include getting Stafford Accounting to do your monthly bookkeeping, access to data through Xero and scheduling for either monthly or quarterly meetings that include tax planning discussions. Sometimes you’ve got to spend money to make money.

 

3. They understand the vital role technology plays in a modern business

Accounting software has changed; products like Xero work exceptionally well for your business accounting needs. They enable your business to connect with a multitude of other cloud based add-ons that can help your business – from inventory management to time management.

 

4. Ask twice if you don’t understand

Business and tax advisory is not easy to comprehend. Don’t be afraid to ask questions until you understand the situation. We at Stafford Accounting can simplify the situation along with providing a plan that clearly sets out your path moving forward. It’s your future. Your money. Your outcomes.

 

Stafford Accounting- your business advisor, accountant and bookkeeper all rolled into one. Get ready for real advice, not just accountancy.

 

Stafford Accounting puts you in control. You choose the services that you need, and we’ll deliver them all at a price you can afford, with a clear mutually agreed service and action plan. If your accountant is not fulfilling your needs, it’s time to have a chat to us.
