We know how difficult managing and running your own business alongside your accounts can be. Some people often go at it alone and quickly realise it’s too much work and others have done their own accounting and bookkeeping for years. This blog will bring some clarity on deciding whether you should consider an accountant.

Accountants help at all different stages during the growth of your business – they do much more than just payroll and tax returns. So when is the right time to get an accountant on board?

The financial management of your business can be incredibly complex and it carries serious consequences if done incorrectly. Accountants help avert disaster by ensuring your business finances are managed correctly and numbers are accurate. They reduce the chances of you facing liability and eliminate potential mistakes.


If you are finding that bookkeeping, tax returns and payroll are always the last thing to complete on your to-do list then you know it’s not something that you are comfortable doing. It is human nature to complete the easy, comfortable, exciting tasks first which could mean leaving the stressful ones until last. We find that this adds to the pressure of running your own business. Although it may save you money, is doing it yourself really where your effort, time and skill are best placed?
