So Why Exactly Do Business Use Accountants?

By Allie Tatman

Both small or large business can benefit from an accountant as keeping on top of company finances yourself can be stressful. If you hire an accountant they can make every aspect of accounting easier for you and your employees to understand. Once hired, an accountants job is to provide all the advice and guidance you need regarding your company finances. They may also take on financial tasks that were previously undertaken by other employees – freeing up time for them to conduct other jobs within your business.

Accounting issues must be solved in any business whether an accountant is employed or not. Usually business owners or managers will be left to deal with accounting queries if an accountant is not employed. These could include; analysing the financial profit and loss of a business over a period of time and calculating the business performance.

Within your company each and everyone of your transactions should be clearly described and recorded. An accountant will usually do this for you. They can also complete any necessary financial documents, like; balance sheets, cash flow, income statements and owner’s equity.

Your company can decide to hire an accountant who has a speciality, often book keeping. This means they will be excellent at keeping record of details such as employee payment (PAYE) and VAT (if you are VAT registered).

Another task is best completed by a professional accountant is the submission of your tax return. When you do this yourself it can be a slow and frustrating process. It is likely it will take up a lot of your time which could be spent elsewhere on your business. An accountant can prepare and calculate your financial statements to be submitted. They can also make understanding the amount of tax owed much easier too.
