If you’re a small business, you might think that retaining an accountant isn’t a necessary or cost effective decision. Many small businesses will only bring an accountant in for specific projects, or when the end of the tax year is approaching. Some may even forgo an accountant altogether, opting to manage their own finances.
Find out why passing up on a straight talking accountant might not be the right decision with this video, then read on to learn more.
Foregoing expert advice carries a whole range of risks that can harm your business and form a barrier to successful growth. Without the right expertise, predicting your future circumstances could be difficult – making it harder to navigate around potential pitfalls when the time comes.
The range of advice that a trusted, straight-talking accountant can provide cannot be overstated –steering you away from unnecessary tax complications, keeping your costs down, offeringextensive advice and guidance on growing your business.
Retaining an accountant allows them to develop an understanding of your business that a less permanent advisor simply can’t match. It can make a huge difference to be working alongside someone who listens to your specific need and requirements, then works with you to achieve your goals.
A dedicated accountant can provide you with advice not only about your own business, but about your sector as well. They will be able to provide you with an extensive overview of where you stand in relation to your competitors and help you plan for the future.
What may have seemed at first like an unnecessary expense is likely to end up saving you money in the long term. An accountant with the right expertise can offer your business value, knowledge and support throughout your growth.

Our business support services can relieve you of many of your routine financial and accounting operations, leaving you free to use your energy where it is most required: growing your business.
Tax is a costly concern for businesses in terms of both time and money but, considering how much of your trading costs tax represents, it’s essential to handle it well. Increased reporting obligations, endless legislation revisions, robust investigation policies and harsh non-compliance penalties make it ever more time-consuming to keep up with demands, but Dua & Co. can keep abreast of these complex issues for you, while adding value to your business.
Financial planning is a continuous process of appraisal and review. Ensuring that your savings and investments are always being controlled in suitable environments where they are fulfilling their maximum potential is a complex task – but one which is essential for financial growth. We advise our clients on how to make the most out of existing assets and ensure every avenue for growth is explored.
Expanding your business internationally is a huge leap, with the potential for similarly huge rewards. No matter how confident you are in your business, international expansion throws up a whole new set of issues: understanding and adapting to a new marketplace, creating a new network of business contacts and monitoring local competition, to name but a few. We are able to provide clients who are braving the waters of international expansion with a whole range of unique services. We work with an International Partner who has coverage in over 90 countries.
