Whether you are a start-up or a small business, the importance and value of an accountant cannot be overstated. One Click Accountant can offer a range of fixed-fee SME accounting services to help you at any stage of your business’s growth.
For many small business owners, it can be hard to understand why an accountant is necessary, but the role of an accountant is more than just accounts. The right accountant will act as a business advisor, able to provide you with invaluable advice on your current business plan and taxes when registering as a new business. Your business structure in the beginning will be the key to future success and again, this is something your accountant will be keen to advise you on.
How can small businesses benefit from fixed fee accounting?
Our accountants are able to offer small businesses a range of fixed-fee accounting services that will be far more cost effective in the long term. These services range from monthly/quarterly returns, year end accounts, accounting software, advice, and payroll to name a few.
This type of accountancy service can be much more beneficial to smaller businesses than paying by the hour for a number of reasons. To start, it is better value for money as it is easy to lose track of time when paying by the hour and end up spending more than you can afford.
It is also a productive means of minimising stress, easing your financial worries and knowing there is someone you can receive unlimited help and advice from throughout the month.
Do small businesses need an accountant?
Whilst some small business owners choose to manage their finances themselves whether it be VAT returns, book keeping etc. they may feel it is beneficial to use an accountant in other areas. Whether it be due to a lack of knowledge, time restrictions or otherwise every business is different and requires different levels of support.
Using fixed-fee accounting services helps to provide you with unlimited access for the areas that you do need consultation in to ensure your business can operate as efficiently as possible.
