Top 7 Reasons you Should Change your Accountant in 2021

The success of any business depends on providing good financial information, specifically for small developing businesses. Basically, the financial statement gives an overview of how the business is doing and the finances of any business. Like a report card, financial statements are used regularly by the tax offices, shareholders, investors, bankers, and everyone who values your business or someone looking to purchase your products or services.

How good is your chartered accountant? Is your business gaining success or going downhill? Is your accountant trustworthy? Some of the red flags that would provide you with the clues are:

  • Accounts Can Be Shared Abroad

How do you know that your accounts aren’t getting exported outside New Zealand? To ensure this, keeping a check on your daily, weekly and monthly financial condition is crucial. Many accountants have their teams abroad where they transfer the money of important business, leading to their downfall. Around 70% to 90% of many business owners’ personal net worth is tied to their business, so a fall in the business’s financial affairs can lead to bankruptcy.

Countless businesses have faced devastating consequences due to handing this responsibility to their accountants or bookkeepers. Financial management is a big part of any business, but many business owners are reluctant to conduct this business side. But in the end, it’s their money, and they should do everything to understand it and work towards improving it.

Your accountant should help you improve your business; if this is not the end they are working towards, you have the wrong accountant. They help manage your finances and record them in your financial statement, complete a report card, and tell the world outside how your business is doing. You understand your business more by being conversant with your balance sheet, income sheet, and cash flows statement.

  • Springing Tax Surprises

The last quarter of every year is a crucial time for businesses because the taxes are due, and other business aspects are being completed. You completed everything and felt good about it, but a few days or a week before your taxes are due, your accountant informs you about the taxation consequence of your performance, but you don’t have any cash, this becomes a bigger problem than it needs to be and you spent the next couple of weeks settling this problem.

An accountant should always be present and engaged in the business, especially in the last quarter of the year. This helps ensure that all your tasks and finances are managed by the end of the year. They should inform you and ask questions about the year’s projected profit and help you define the future tax liabilities. If your accountant is unable to do this, you need a better accountant.

  • Having to Set Up Two Books

Bookkeeping is an important part of running a business. Everything from details about the products and services to your business’s financial affairs is recorded in these books. But having to set up two books is extra effort and a waste of time and resources. You keep a book of records, and your accountant keeps another in his/her office. When you ask your accountant to provide you with details of financial information, give him your information, but he provides you with monthly financial statements from his records. This duplication is a waste of your time and effort that hold the backflow of information, impacting your business’s smooth running. Your accountant needs to set up a book; you do not need to worry about that.

  • Busy Accountant

Having to run after your accountant who isn’t receiving your calls and getting back to you about your business is just not right. A decent accountant is always available to answer your question whenever you reach out to them. They get very busy in the first quarter of the year and know the value of time when it’s tax season.  They should answer your questions and keep you updated throughout the year. If your accountant isn’t doing his job right, then you need a better one.

  • Receiving Unexpected Bills

If you are receiving unexpected and untimely bills without any explanation, either you and your accountant have a communication problem or are getting robbed unknowingly. Better make an effort and check that out.

  • Pro-Active and Honest

To improve your business, you need active participation from your team. Your accountant is also a big part of that, and if your accountant isn’t an active listener and agrees with you on everything that you say are not good signs. You need team members who give you thoughtful and unbiased responses. If your accountant is afraid of engaging in your business and providing you with sound advice, then you need to change them.

  • Lack of Business Ethics

Good business ethics help grow a business. Therefore, the business ethics of your accountant matter a lot. To keep the business growing, your accountant needs to be updated with the technology and the business’s profits and losses to run a well-oiled machine. If your accountant is not operating efficiently, they won’t be able to provide you with sound advice on managing your business.

If you observe any of the signs mentioned above in your accountant, then it’s high time that you consider hiring a new accountant who can help you run your business efficiently. If one or two of the signs are present, you might want to discuss your dilemma with them and come to a negotiation on how to improve your accountant’s work ethic and business.
