3 things your accountant can help you save

Starting a business is easy. Growing it requires planning, monitoring and venturing into uncharted territories.  In this article, we will take a close look at three things your accountant can help you save on as you grow your business. 

1. Sanity

As you scale up the business, time is not only your biggest enemy. Unless you are a qualified CPA, chances are there will be areas of the function you will be unfamiliar with. Your lack of expertise in some of these functions can be an impediment to growth.

To add, accounting will not be the only function that is calling for your attention. There are others – sales, production, suppliers and customers. You will be pulled in many different directions. Your sanity is at risk. 

Leave it to the experts, especially in functions that are technical in nature and increasingly complex. Their expertise is invaluable. 

2. Money

Budgeting for growth is never about spending as little as you can. As the adage goes, you get what you pay for. Having said that, splurging has never guaranteed the desired results either. 

Both the technical and legal knowledge of your accountant is vital here. Should you set up an off-shore office for some parts of your operations? Should the ROI of your new initiative be higher? What are the key performance indicators to measure the success of your new service? 

They are big questions. Your entrepreneurial experience may not be adequate to address them. Work with your accountant. It will be money well spent to engage them at this level. 

3. Time

How do you make time an ally as you grow the business? By focusing on functions that rely on your core competence. 

To be an effective business owner, you must be fully conscious of your core competence. Hopefully, they are directly related to revenue generation activities of the business, for example, sales and marketing, client management or innovation.

Your days and energy levels are limited. Given the importance of your business’ financial well being, accounting is best delegated. It will leave you with more time to focus on growth activities.
