How Your Accountant (May Be) The Real MVP Of Your Business
Many businesses attribute much of their success to the number crunchers, the bean counters and the financial gurus that can actually be the backbone of the operation. We’ll let you in on a little secret that many businesses already know. The value of an accountant brings to the table, in most cases, goes far beyond accounts payable. Businesses benefit in a multitude of ways from the relationship they forge with their accountants. Let’s explore the many ways you gain accountant value from your partnership with your “number cruncher.”
4 Ways Your Accountant Supports Your Success
- You’ll be prepared for, well, anything. If the year 2020 has taught us anything as business owners, it certainly drove home the point that things can change without warning and in ways that we never could have imagined. Having a long-standing relationship with an accountant that keeps your books and financials up to date and optimized means you’ll be ready for anything. Your business will be able to maneuver when unforeseen circumstances (both good and bad) occur. You’ll never be left feeling like you haven’t covered the bases.
- You will have a go-to resource. Having your accountant on speed dial has more value for your business than just access. Your ongoing relationship develops and grows. Your accountant applies his or her expertise in the field of accounting and technology to the nuances of your business. This deeper level of understanding allows your accountant to develop a deep understanding of how your business works, what your internal and external landscape looks like, what your strengths and weaknesses are as well as your short- and long-term goals.
- You will be protected from risk. The rules never stop changing. And, in today’s volatile environment, those rules and regulations seem to be changing at a faster clip than ever before. From federal, state and local compliance requirements to dealing with pandemic processes to ever changing tax laws, you can rest assured that your business is evolving with changes and remaining protected from risks of many shapes and sizes when engaged in a long-term relationship with a knowledgeable accountant.
- Your silos will be eliminated. Ah, the dreaded silo. The departments not synced up. The wasted resources. The dissatisfied employees. The underutilized technology tools. The lack of accurate and clear insight into business performance. Silos can truly make the difference between success and failure in any business. When you enlist the services of a tech-savvy accountant, you’ll gain the value of having a consultant take a 360-view of your business operations with the goal of streamlining processes, getting the tech optimized and, of course, breaking down silos that could be limiting your business’s performance.
