Are you getting the service you deserve from your accountant? When equipped with the right coaching skills, your accountant can provide you with much more than accounts and compliance work. When thinking of the role of an accountant, numbers, tax and bookkeeping often spring to mind. However, there is much more to offer. If compliance is all your accountant has to offer, either they should think about providing a better service, or you should think about getting a better accountant!
So, what should an Accountant do for you and your business?
Due to advancements in technology and automation, the role of the accountant is changing. Rather than fearing this, your accountant should use these advancements in technology to their advantage. They should take this opportunity to provide you with a much more valuable service. Technology like cloud accounting and specialist forecasting software allow accountants to spend more time working with you, finding out what you really want from your business, and helping you plan your business using your financial data. This will help with making decisions and projections which can help your business grow. Yes, your accountant should still provide you with accounts, tax returns etc. but you could be getting so much more to help with the development of your business.
Coach and Accountant
Knowledge and deep understanding of the numbers, combined with the interpersonal skills gained by coaching training, is the perfect combination of skills to help develop a business. By keeping close to the numbers, your accountant can provide you with specific and helpful information which can help you grow your business. This financial expertise, combined with coaching skills means they can really get to know you and your business and what you really want, forming a relationship which helps them help you identify the changes which need to be made to build the business, and create the lifestyle, you really want.
