Hiring an accountant? As we explain here, they can do much more than your tax return.
Accountants can issue reminders about your goals, your to-do list and your deadlines, saving you stress and fuss.
2. End Procrastination
Often we lack confidence and so put things off. An accountant will know which receipts and networking events could be taken off your tax bill.
3. Grow Your Business
Growing your business involves knowing what money is coming in each month, how much is going out, and what you are owed. Your accountant will help you with the numbers.
4. Grow Your Profits
Profit pays your mortgage as well as buying you nice things: sales stimulate profits and more sales. Think about outsourcing – an accountant can offer hand-holding.
5. Minimise Your Expenses
You need expenses – which take money out of your business – to provide services to clients. You may not be claiming off your tax bill for certain expenses – ask an accountant.

6. Get Over Fear
Many people fear their tax return, which prevents them from growing their business. Your accountant can keep records and will understand HMRC terminology.
7. Create More Time
You will save time by outsourcing your bookkeeping, tax return and accounts. Helpful accountancy services include providing email support and mentoring.
8. Saving Advice
You need to save to stay solvent. You have suppliers and tax bills to pay, as well as subcontractors and yourself!
Your accountant will help you to manage this and to avoid worry over paying short-term bills. They can provide stress relief when you are making savings.
9. Get You Paid
Getting paid in a timely way is the difference between owning a profitable business and going bust.
Cash flow – having enough to pay bills that are due – is crucial. Your accountant can assist (for example, paying business suppliers and paying the mortgage) as well as maximising your chances of getting paid on time.
10. Power of Gratitude
An accountant will appreciate your business and treat you well. A large thank-you goes far in a small business.
