There are many myths about accountants such as…the profession is all about maths…that accounting software is now so clever they are not needed at all…that they are only needed at year-end or tax-year end…that accountants are expensive…that an accountant can’t help assess and improve financial performance and a lot of business owners are somehow content for their ‘favourite’ accountant to ‘just’ do the books.
Now we could look at each and every one of these and we may do in future blog posts, however, I would like to concentrate on just one for now and that is “Accountants just do the books”.
Filing Accounts, taxes and generally looking after the books are the basics for any accountant they could and should do much more, so demand this of your accountant as utilised correctly your accountant can save and even make you money.
Accountants have been around the block, they have seen it, done it, and got the T-shirt…It’s this experience that makes them the unsung heroes of many organisations of all shapes and sizes.
Here we are going to explore 10 fundamental tasks your accountant can collaborate with you on to enhance your business and ensure that you reach your future goals and dreams.
And finally, Accountants are Introverts or boring! Well we’re not, not at Laxmi, we’ve got moves like Jagger, imagination like Grisham and although it’s not all about maths we like to believe we have Einstein-like traits!
