STARTING a new business? Then no matter how experienced you are with financial matters, you need to get an accountant.
While the tax inspector can be helpful, and can give you a degree cof advice, it is not part of their job to help you reduce your tax burden. That is why you need an accountant.
If you have a small business, it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking your accounts are simple, too. The fact is, if you are running your operation, you are already playing half a dozen roles within your business. And that of being the accountant is one you can well do without.
It is well worth paying an annual fee to have all the worry taken off your shoulders. You can use the extra time this creates to generate more business and make more money!
Whether your organisation is small, medium or large, the rule is the same. Make sure you choose an accountant you like and trust. Shop around, ask advice, and get the right person for you. They don’t have to be your best friend but you need them to be the best for your company.
