Clients usually start by taking compliance only services from us, such as annual accounts, payroll and personal tax. As part of all our annual accounts meetings, we discuss how the year ahead looks for clients. This can often lead to conversations on the growth goals of the business, and how revenues and profits may change over the coming months.
In order to track this growth, clients will then often benefit from having management accounts prepared each month or quarter. Utilising cloud accounting software means clients already have a better view of their financial performance, and then working with their accountant, we are able to bring figures completely up to date and provide insights on how the business is performing compared to a budget that may have been set, or against the same period last year.
If the business has ambitious growth goals, they will often then take further services, such as the Virtual FD service with monthly or quarterly meetings, or want to put a detailed financial model or business plan in place, particularly if they are seeking external debt or equity investment to allow them to grow.
The above demonstrates how over a period of time, modern accountants can provide a wide variety of services to clients and work with them closely to ensure they have up to date, relevant and timely financial information to allow them to make informed business decisions.
