Switching Accountants Is Easy – And Can Save You Time and Money
Switching Accountants is an easy and pain free process and can be done after one consultation.
Avid Partners takes care of all of the details from requesting all of the required documentation from your previous advisor to making contact with revenue directly on your behalf to register the details. Once you decide to make the move you don’t have to do anything else. Over 70% of our current customers have switched their business to us over the years. This is now a business norm as companies grow.
Here are some questions to ask yourself when analysing whether you are currently getting the service you require from your current accountant.
- Have you outgrown your current accountant in terms of knowledge and growth assistance?
- Are your calls or enquiries being returned the same day?
- Are your business advisors making themselves available to meet with you as often as required?
- Are they proactive with advice and strategies or do they only get in contact to answer your specific queries?
- Do you have full confidence in your accountant?
- Are they able to deal with any issue that arises in a timely and efficient manner?
- Do your financial advisors keep themselves up to date on all business matters and adapt their practices to reflect the modern business environment that you operate in?
- Do you get the feeling that your business is an important client or do you feel like the small fish in the pond?
- Are you getting good value and excellent service for the fees you are paying?
- When you have a query do you get clear and precise advice that you can understand or do you get industry jargon that leaves you more confused after the call than before?
There can be many reasons why a business would consider changing accountants. All business owners are passionate about their company and it is only natural that they would want everyone connected to their business to be passionate as well.
SME’s in particular want to feel that their business advisors are extended business partners. They want their extended partners involved, not only to sort things out if something goes wrong, but also to be actively involved in the business on a regular basis to help them grow and meet their aspirations for their company.
What is required from a modern accountant is a full range of business knowledge that can be imparted to clients on the most important business areas, specifically accounting, financial management, marketing, business development and strategic thinking. Most business owners are entrepreneurial in focus but very few possess all of these attributes. That’s why a full rounded accountancy practice is in such demand.
In the modern business environment working with great accountants is critical and can make the difference between taking the right path from the start or learning the hard way. Switching accountants has never been easier with technology allowing for records and documentation to be transferred electronically and past obligations recorded through online systems. Businesses up skill all the time so don’t settle for second best just because switching requires a little but of effort. You might find that you will get far better value elsewhere and save money in the process. You wouldn’t accept less than first class service with any other aspect of your business and your accountancy should be no exception.
