Did you know that working closely with your accountant can really help you grow your business?
For some businesses, having an accountant is to ‘tick the box’ and make sure the necessary and legal paperwork is in order, including the filing of company accounts once a year but anyone serious about growing their business needs to consider the bigger picture on how having the right chartered accountant is more than that.
It might sound like a bit of a tongue-twister but it’s a proven concept that’s very straightforward to understand. At de Jong & Phillips, we work with our clients to understand their business and help them set and achieve goals that are realistic and achievable. We talk to our clients regularly to help guide their business to success.
By providing this level of accountability, business owners have a greater chance of success. The coaching we provide helps businesses to focus on what they need to do, including what support and resources they need and what needs to be achieved by specific deadlines.
Accountability is re-enforced with monthly and quarterly reports that we provide and more importantly are reviewed with our customers so that they can react to current business conditions quickly - whether that’s political or economic conditions such as Brexit and a downturn in the economy or changes made in the competitor landscape.
Software to support you
Having the right software means that you can work closely with your accountant and have the right data at your fingertips to understand what’s going on in your business. Using Xero accounting software, along with the right combination of data capture and apps that are on the market, to help you with planning and managing your finances.
Xero can be accessed remotely by your team as well as by any small business accountant that you work with and provides easy access to financial data that you can review instantly.
We are an established Xero Accountant, using the proven online Xero accounting software to help businesses reach their potential. If you would like to find out more about Xero accounting software, get in touch.
