Running a small business is a challenge and doing everything yourself makes the challenge even harder.  Many small business owners will cite that relying on themselves to handle everything was one of their biggest mistakes.

Service providers like bookkeepers, accountants and employees are there for a reason – to help you reach your goals.  Accountants can play a crucial role in your company’s success. With this in mind, many small business owners still think their business is too small to need one.

Here are a few reasons why your accountant is essentially your business partner and why you need one:

Accountants Save You Money

Think about all of the costly mistakes that you’ve made over the course of managing your books.  If you had worked with a professional accountant or bookkeeper, you could have avoided nearly all the mistakes that cost your business.  Especially once tax time rolls around, if you partner with your accountant, they’ll help you find deductions you might have missed and will ensure all of your taxes are done correctly, eliminating the risk of future audit.

Accountants Save You Time

How much time do you spend managing your books?  If you’re like most small business owners handling accounting by themselves, you probably spend at least a few hours each week.  If you partner with an accountant, they’ll save you all of this time, allowing you to focus on the core of your business.

Accountants Help You Grow

Many small business owners think that they don’t need an accountant until they reach a certain amount of revenue.  In reality, partnering with an accountant will help you achieve your growth goals much sooner than if you were to work on your own.

Professional accountants will bring years of experience working with companies of all sizes and strategies that will maximise your growth.  Especially if you are still in the early stages of your business, you should highly consider starting off on the right foot with a professional accountant.
