The new financial year is on its way, but do you know to the penny how much your Accountant is going to charge you this year? No? Perhaps you need a new accountant.

Can you call your Accountant at any time, just to ask a question or get a second opinion on a business decision?

Is your Accountant working with you to grow your business?

Does your Accountant know how your business works?

If you have answered “no” to all or any of these questions then it’s definitely time for a new accountant!!

Most people choose an accountant based on location and expect only an annual numbers check in return for their business. Sadly, it’s all people have come to expect. Worse still, many people say they “dread” contacting their accountant – this shouldn’t be the case. Your Accountant should be an important part of your team.

With such low expectations it’s no surprise that the majority of businesses never switch accountant to find someone more pro-active, suitable for their needs, experts in small business issues, and open to using new technology to better support them.
