Considering Hiring An Accountant? Here Are 3 Reasons Why You Should

As one year comes to an end and the promise of a fresh, new start is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to plan big for your business in the new year. Your list of business goals for 2022 may include growing sales, hiring new employees, expanding your services, or taking on more office space. 

Whatever goals you’re working towards, your business must be ready to take them on from an accounting perspective. Hiring new employees means finding the right payroll system and considering employee benefits packages. Growing your office space may mean new deductibles you haven’t qualified for in the past. Who is there to help you navigate these changes? Your accountant! Or at least, they should be. 

Why Hire An Accountant

If you don’t already work with an accountant or accounting firm, we highly recommend considering searching for one in the new year – especially if you have big goals for growth. However, if you’re not sure if an outsourced accountant is the right fit for you, we’re sharing three reasons you may want to reconsider that notion. 

1. Spend your valuable time where it is best used 

As a small business owner, it is evident that your talents speak for themselves. Don’t waste your valuable time and energy trying to navigate the nuanced world of accounting. By hiring an expert in this field, you can save time, money, and your own sanity by having an expert handle these items. Focus on the things that matter most to you and leave the rest up to efficient and effective partners. 

2. Consider benefits to all finance-related work 

An accounting partner doesn’t just have to handle strictly filing your taxes. If you need support with payroll, financial projections, cash flow, and more, an accountant may be able to help in all of these areas. Be sure to talk with accountants you’re vetting to make sure their talents align with your needs. 

3. Gain a trusted partner to help you navigate areas of business you’re unsure about 

One of our favorite perks for business owners working with accounting experts like those at Gift CPAs is that our accountants offer consulting and advice on business strategy relating to finances and help you identify areas of opportunity. Small changes can create big opportunities, and we help business owners understand where these opportunities lie.
