Why is it so important for businesses to hire a great accountant?

A great business coach will support you to reach your full potential and whilst they cannot ultimately make decisions for you, they can guide you through your options with experience and expertise.

Good advice on the management of debts can offer a business the opportunity to thrive once again. Without specialist advice Company owners can face more difficulties. The earlier you speak to a professional, the more chance you have of creating options for your business.

A great Accountant is instrumental in ensuring you know how your business is performing and allows you the opportunity to address any potential pitfalls before they become more serious.

What do you love most about your job?

We love working with entrepreneurs and seeing businesses grow and succeed.

Where businesses are in financial difficulty and the business owner needs or wants to close down, whilst this is the hardest aspect of our roles, once the pressure and worry is taken away from business owners we enjoy working with them to start again or to pursue other opportunities.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We love what we do and we love business. We are married and have 3 girls, so Gareth is outnumbered in our house! Working a standard 9-5 doesn't suit us, sometimes we start at 5 am or work late into the evening. Whatever is best for our clients and our family. This flexibility allows us to go the extra mile, we do not have to tick boxes like a large organisation. We can tailor our advice and support to exactly what you and your business needs.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because we care, it is the driving force behind what we offer. We are a family run business and we are both ethical and professional. Stephanie has a degree in Business and teaches Business Studies in Colleges, whilst Gareth is an Insolvency Practitioner (IP), the very highest form of insolvency specialist and is licensed and authorised to act in relation to an insolvent individual, partnership or company.

The title 'Chartered Accountant' and the letters ACA or FCA, indicates that the person has undertaken a minimum of three years in-depth training, passed a series of examinations in financial management, auditing, business strategy and taxation as well as committing to continuing professional development.

As opposed to specialising in tax returns, a Chartered Accountant instead will focus on providing accurate records of all financial transactions for an individual or business. Consequently, this type of accountant is more likely to be found employed in a more commercial capacity.

Hiring the right Accountant for your business may take a bit of time. Who you choose to look after your accounts is vital, especially if you have plans to expand as you will need to look for someone who will get more involved in the financial side of things the bigger your company gets.

  • Research - Start with the company’s website and look at the accounting services they offer with an eye on what you might need in the future. If you choose an accountancy firm that doesn’t have the expertise to help you as your business expands, you will end up needing to finding another accountant.

  • Create a shortlist - Create a shortlist of three or four firms you
    think are a good fit and arrange face-to-face meetings with all of
    them. In addition to the fees, you need to find out about the
    services they provide, as well as their customer services.

  • Fees - Some Accountants charge by the hour while others operate on a fixed-fee basis. You need to be clear before selecting an Accountant for your business on how their fees are calculated.

    adding financial value to your company.

  • Accounting software - You will want to check that any systems you use are familiar to the accounting firm. Your current method of financial reporting may not be the most effective one for your business and they may recommend systems that can do it better.
