What Accountants Do

Minimum Services you Should Ask For

If you are in business you should ask your accountant to provide you with minimum services.
These should include the following:
  • Help in setting up systems to ensure that your business will run efficiently and profitably.

  • Help with setting up your initial forecasts and performance targets so as to maximize income and profit while reducing costs.

  • Request monthly meetings at the least with your accountant so you can assess how the business is going and the accountant will be independent enough to act as a “devil’s advocate” so as to highlight areas that are of concern.

  • Discuss ways of going forward in the business as well as the requirements should you as owner want to sell the business.
