How an Accountant Can Help a Small Business

Are you a small business trying to navigate your way through unchartered waters; just trying to keep afloat during these uncertain times? If you are, then perhaps your local Gold Coast accountant can help!

One thing I often notice with small business, or any business, looking to get a leg-up is that they turn to marketing and promotions in their time of need.

Business is slow, so we throw more money into Google Ads, increase our Facebook Ads budget, run a 20% storewide discount. Such tactics may get you more business in a timely manner, which is great. But, you’re not solving the problem! Advertising doesn’t look at the fundamentals of your business structure to analyse and identify the issues holding your business back. Your accountant does.

If you’re looking to improve business, consider investing in your accountant rather than advertising. Continue reading to discover how an accountant, such as Grow Advisory Group can help your small business.

Business Structure

Is your business structured correctly? Do you even know? An accountant can ensure your business structure is right for your needs. The right business structure will offer significant tax incentives and asset protection.

Streamline Procedure

One of the most important ways an accountant can help a small business is by streamlining the procedure.

Grow Advisory Group excel at this. We review and analyse procedure to identify areas that can be simplified, saving you time and money. One of the most common ways we assist in this process is by moving your business to cloud-based solutions. By automating your accounting, you can reduce staffing costs and free up your own time.

We a fluent in all the top accounting software, and can integrate it with your POS systems.

Improve Cash Flow

Cash flow is always a problem for a struggling small business. You can’t order new stock because you simply don’t have the funds.

Gold Coast accountants, such as Grow Advisory Group, can help predict your spending to come up with a strategic solution to ensure your cash flow never ebbs.

Manage Your Debt

Not all debt is bad; some debt is necessary for growth and expansion. An accountant can help you tell the difference between good and bad debt, and help you find the best borrowing strategy for your small business. By analysing reports, an accountant can advise whether its best to put cash onto a loan or reinvest it into your business.

Help with Business Strategy

You don’t need to be business savvy to own a business. Although it helps, an accountant can provide you with all the information you need. They can help you set goals and give you the tools to measure progress.

Support Growth

Every small business’s dream is to grow; whether its to bring on more staff; expand premises or to franchise. Growth seldom happens from sheer luck. It takes planning. An accountant is instrumental in business expansion. An accountant can help your business grow by:

  • providing a financial forecast to help aid decision making
  • providing cash flow, pricing, financing, and inventory management insight
  • provide advice on leasing and purchasing property and equipment
  • provide people-focused financial metrics such as operating profit per employee
  • and much more
