According to local pub gossip, accountants are the termites of business society. Most of them are parasites who don’t create anything, and a lot of what they do can be done by the customers themselves. However, the people who provided me with this information (over a few pints) never owned a business themselves. These “experts” argued that all I needed for my business was a lap top with a simple accounts program. That may be true in their world where personal tax affairs are simple, but as I’m now experiencing, the financial arena is much more complex.
The reason I started my business is that I like doing things my own way. I have a sound commercial skill set, and I’m putting it to use to make money for myself. The problem is my business is growing so quickly that it has moved beyond the basic pleasure of getting paid for doing what I love. In short, my success is causing confusion and anxiety. I’m saddled with time-consuming paper work, receipts, taxes, payrolls, and time-sheets. As a result, I’m beginning to think it may be a good idea to hire a professional from Accounting Pro to help ease the heavy lifting.
While I enjoy working with numbers, I think it’s still a good idea to contact Accounting Pro. It would pay off to hire an experienced consultant, who could handle the ins and outs of my tax issues, financial affairs, investments, and general accounting needs. Moreover, the time I spend on personal accounting is eating up precious hours that could be better served doing what I love, which is operating my business. In addition, the reasonable fee charged by Accounting Pro to take care of my books is less costly than the time I’m losing to run my firm.
My company has grown, but so have my needs. The sheer numbers, details, and records are overwhelming, and beyond my ability to manage. A seasoned accountant could help me process payrolls and tax liabilities. Tapping into his/her expertise would make these tasks easier. A specialist could also track my sales and expenses, and advise me on receipts and records in a detailed, organized fashion. For these reasons, I’ve decided to hire an agent from Accounting Pro to take a load off my shoulders. Oh…and a free round of drinks for the lads in the pub!
