Have you heard that one about the accountant that makes you accountable?
Unfortunately there is no joke but us accountants are hardly known for our sense of humour so you haven’t missed out on much.
Typically accountants and accountancy generally is about reporting what has been and we as a firm try to influence that the best we can alongside you during the course of the financial year.
However, we have recognised that this isn’t enough in all cases as what targets are you necessarily holding yourself accountable against and who are you reporting these to. I’m not just talking turnover and profit targets but what about sales targets, margins etc?
We will soon be launching our accountability programme as we recognise that typically clients will be after one of three broad types of support packages from us:
PACKAGE 1 – steady ME (this is all about compliance and doesn’t include any sort of accountability within it and for some may be more than adequate)
PACKAGE 2 – grow ME (this is more aimed at bringing a degree of accountability into your business that is not there already to overcome current difficulties and help you move forward such as by specifically focusing on cash flow and the management thereof)
PACKAGE 3 – WOW ME (this is aimed at bringing a strategic level of scrutiny into your business at a level which will do everything possible to achieve everything you are after such as looking at forecasting, access to finance tools, marketing expertise and so much more but would be tailored around your own needs and requirements)
We’ll be talking about these packages in a lot more detail over the coming months along with demonstrating the benefits of bringing these extra levels of accountability into your business.
If this is of interest to you then just get in touch and we’ll keep you up date leading up to its launch.
Some clients have already been involved in the pilot and have seen amazing results which you’ll hear about in due course.
