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

Financial integrity is everything when you have a business, whether you're just starting out or you've been operating for years. When business owners decide not to hire an accountant, they are usually motivated by the savings they think they will achieve. However, a great accountant can be one of the most worthwhile investments and the most effective ways to handle the financial matter in the business. And in the end, it can actually end up saving the company money, as the business owners will be able to focus on what they do best, which is networking and growing the company.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Knowing that we will make a difference in someone's life as we will influence clients' lives and finances, inspires us to start our business. Our clients are not just numbers, but they are people who have families and desire to succeed financially. After 20 years of experience in public CPA firms, we realize that most CPA firms are missing the big pictures, they are missing the personalized touch with their clients. Most of them are competing to get the most number of clients, in other words, they operate based on "quantity over quality." As a result, some clients will suffer, mistakes happen, and professionalism disappears. Our company strives on making a difference in our clients' lives, financially and personally. There is such a wonderful feeling and such an inspiration to see our clients growth and success in achieving their goal, by helping them to maximize their profit and tax benefits and more efficient use of their resources.

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.

    qualifications and experience of the people who would be dealing with your accounts. You need to know that you could work with them, trust that they are on your side and are continually looking for ways of
    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.

  • Financial jargon - If you are not an expert on finance, your Accountant needs to understand this and be able to communicate with you in a clear and concise manner.
