2 Best-of-the-best Reasons Why Your Business Needs a Professional Accountant

Updated: Oct 6, 2021

Most people don’t realize that one of the biggest downfalls of businesses is poor financial management. Sure, it might seem that your business is still small enough to track finances on paper or on a spreadsheet, but you shouldn’t estimate the wealth of expertise a professional accountant can bring to your team.

Outsourced accounting may be the perfect solution for business owners who need the technical know-how and quality financial planning without the cost of hiring a full-time accountant. At Greenpoint, we do exactly that.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Why exactly are accountants integral to the long-term success of a business?

Save money, time, and tears.

When a limited number of people are working on a plethora of tasks, things can easily be overlooked. As a business expands, the finances become more interconnected and complex, and only someone with a trained eye who speaks the finance language fluently can confidently (and efficiently) keep everything in order.

Accounting is especially important when it comes to taxes. If done improperly, the consequences might cost you even more than it would have to hire an accountant in the first place. An in-house or outsourced accountant can also help maximize whatever tax deductions you may incur, offer guidance year-round to avoid audits, and so much more. While it might seem cheaper to do the work yourself, accountants can do the work more accurately and in less time.

Confidently plan for the future.

Accountants not only know how to fix your finances, but maximize them for the long run. Together, you and your accountant can study your financial history in order to make the best decisions with every passing season for your business. You would want someone who can look at the big picture opportunities especially when you are concerned with the day-to-day minutiae of running the business. Your accountant can advise you on when it would be best to purchase inventory or equipment, and how to budget for worthwhile but costly investments, among other things. All such decisions centered around developing your business and achieving your business goals must always take the current state of your finances into account, and nobody would be more on top of it than a licensed CPA.
