Do you think of your accountant as just someone who you send your receipts and reports to at tax time? Do you limit your contact with your accountant to a few tiresome weeks in the spring? And then wait a year to speak to them again?
If this sounds like you, you’re missing out on a big part of what your accountant can offer you and your small business.
Accountants can help you answer these key questions:
What is your end goal for the business?
How much growth do you want to see?
How soon do you need it to be profitable?
How much money do you need to make each year?
What role do you want to have in your business?
The most important thing to realize about being a small business owner is that going out on your own doesn’t mean being on your own. Even if you never hire an employee, that doesn’t mean you won’t be working with people along the way. You owe it to yourself and the success of your business to partner up with key professionals. One of the most important of these is a good accountant. If you share your goals and dreams for your business with them, they will provide you with the advice and plans you need to reach those goals.
