Friend or Foe?

www.greenandco.comWell actually, neither.

As most business people can appreciate maintaining a professional relationship between service provider and client is important. This relationship is emphasised in the world of accounting where professionalism and integrity form a large part of the services provided as a result of legislation across the profession.

However, it is not uncommon for such relationships to become soured as a result of high expectations of your accountant and potentially a limited understanding of exactly how they can benefit you and your company.

It should be considered that planning is the key element to keeping both parties of the professional relationship satisfied. Providing that your accountant is furnished wholly with the information they require, then the planning phase can begin. As a result your own and your company’s affairs can be set in order without the added pressures of deadlines for Self-Assessment returns or limited company accounts filing. This planning can be beneficial in a multitude of ways including the following:-

  • Tax minimisation
  • Business growth and development

Obtaining the required information is key to providing the best service possible.

Here at Green and Co we strive to obtain the required information well in advance of any statutory deadlines, so we can provide the best service possible. Please remember to help us so we can help you!
