3 Tips to Find Business Accounting Support in New Zealand

Jul 10th 2015 at 4:28 AM

There is only one rule of thumb that you should remember when finding accounting support for your business and that is: to find someone you want to be on the other end of the line when crisis hits. Seeking out the right people to handle some of the most important aspects of your business requires a lot of thought. Hiring help from outside is also one of the most crucial decisions you will ever make for your enterprise, thus you should always take the time to examine your options and select the best people who could truly assist you in maintaining and achieving your goals. Look for a firm that offers a proactive approach in estimating your tax liabilities and plan accordingly.

Accountants do the same basic things for businesses, but not all of them are created equal. Now that you know what is on the line, here are some useful tips you can apply to your hiring process:

•    Size matters – When choosing between support providers, the best fit is usually the one that is the same size as your business. Larger firms may not be the best choice for an SME, simply because they tend to focus on bigger fishes in the market. If you feel too small to be even of interest to a large firm, it is best to turn around and go the direction of more accessible firms that will provide you with the due attention you deserve. These firms are more willing to spend their time and energy for a smaller client like you. Additionally, they understand all the challenges that businesses of your size and caliber usually face and have all the resources to help you get through such hurdles.

•    Inspect references –Checking references is only part of the responsibility of hiring any service provider. This shouldn't be taken lightly especially when looking for accounting support for your business. Think about things like their staff turnover rate, their communication status with current clients, their knowledge of your industry, and the type and quality of services they offer about their previous or current clients.

•    Look beyond number-crunching – Finally, choose a firm that values other skills. While an accountant's job has a lot to do with number crunching and tax laws, they too, require good interpersonal skills to ensure good communication between clients. Look for accounting firms that value these abilities on top of their expertise.
