Why Use an Accounting Firm?

We all know business founder often takes on multiple roles. Hiring a full-time role is also a huge financial commitment, but bringing experienced, and qualified professionals in early  will save you headaches as you grow. Using a chartered accountant who has been in your shoes will set your business up for success.

Do You Need An Accounting firm?

You will need an accounting firm if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • Limited financial support
  • As a Director/Owner you want to be tax compliant
  • Uncertain of your true cashflow situation
  • Considering taking on a large loan
  • You need financial assistance through difficult times
  • You need to make some decisions around your existing business structure (including employees)

Hiring an Accounting Firm Vs Hiring an Employee

Business owners often go through decisions on whether or not to hire or outsource. There is a third option which is to ‘insource’. Insourcing is to hire consultants as an extension of your business. So hiring an outsourced CFO on a regular retainer can also mean that you have a CFO for your business and pay them only for the time you require them.
