Fully qualified professionals tackling your business needs
All of your bookkeeping is up to date and now you need to submit your accounting. What do you need to look for when employing an accountant?
Firstly you need to ensure that they are properly certified. CIMA or an ACCA are the most recognised qualifications. You also need to ensure that your accountant is insured. Are they competitively priced? Can they provide you with the best possible service?
Above all, you need to ensure that your accountant is really working for you. Accountants are not only required to handle all of your submissions, returns, reporting and communications with HMRC and Companies House. Your accountant should also be helping you to grow your business by forecasting, analysing and advising you how to best increase not only your turnover but in turn the value of your business.
Questions to ask your accountant:
- How does my business compare with my competitors?
- What is included in my cost of goods sold?
- What is my gross profit percentage?
- Is this gross profit percentage fair for my type of business?
- How can I reduce my expenses without compromising my quality or service?
- How much net profit is my business making?
- Is the net profit percentage worth the effort I’m putting in?
- What is my breakeven point and why is this important?
- Which of my products or services are making me the most profit?
- What can I do to improve my cash-flow?
- How much money do I have invested in the business? Would my money be better invested?
- Is my business in a good position financially – will it be able to survive a downturn?
