Contrary to popular belief, accountants don’t just come out of the woodwork when your tax return is due. While we help you stay in the ATO’s good books by compiling your financial statements, filing BAS and completing good old fashioned compliance work, there is more to us than numbers and keeping the tax man happy.
This work is fundamental when it comes to keeping you out of jail and bankruptcy. However, if you have dreams to chase and goals to achieve, it might be time to reassess your outdated definition of an accountant.
What business coaching brings to the table.
Being a Sydney small business owner can be a lonely path to walk with the success of your business solely resting on your shoulders. It’s no easy burden to carry, especially when there is financial management, people management, and the overarching business strategy to consider too – talk about exhausting. Expecting yourself to do it all will only make the idea of throwing in the towel enticing and tempting.
As an outsider, it’s easy for your advisor to stay objective when assessing how we can help you achieve long term success. When it comes to implementing the technology, processes and strategies you need to get more out of your business, we have been there, done that and got the T-shirt. As your business coaching and accounting bundle, we meet with you every quarter to go over your budget, numbers, and financial management to ensure you stay on track to reach your unique goals.
What a great adviser and coach could mean for your business.
When you leapt to start your own business, there was no doubt you had a reason. You wanted more. Maybe it was more time, more money, more freedom, or more flexibility. Whatever your ‘more’ is, we are here to help you sync up your business and your goals by creating a strategy and setting achievable challenges and targets to accomplish it. The first step is outlining these goals and providing you and your team with a clear direction and purpose. As Business Advisor Accountants, we have the bonus gift of predicting how your business will look in both the near and distant future. We are not here to hype you up to go big or go home; we are here to give you a clear roadmap and ongoing support.
From the outside looking in.
As a business owner, it can be hard to get an objective perspective on your business as you are so intertwined with it. However, a business advisor can provide you with a fresh take on your business, allowing you to step away from the daily hustle and see it in a new light. Having this clear viewpoint on your business is crucial in identifying areas of improvement and opportunity.
Keeping you accountable.
You have to look after yourself before you can help others. It rings true to your personal and professional life, which is why having a support network should not be limited to just your personal life. If you play an essential role in the success of your business, that makes your health and wellbeing imperative to its success as well.
As your business advisor accountant, we are there alongside you through the good, the bad and the ugly. You are no longer on this path alone – if you have a question, require some guidance or need a sounding board, you have an expert on hand. That being said, we are not here to hold your hand and sing kumbaya. Once we have fleshed out your roadmap, we will be keeping you accountable, and with that knowledge, you are more likely to show up and get the results you desire.
Nip it in the bud.
A Business coach can put your business under the microscope and help you identify any issues on the horizon before they even arise. As business advisors and accountants, we also have all the data and skills required to identify any cash flow or financial issues before they glare their ugly heads. Additionally, it can also be challenging to acknowledge and identify any leadership or cultural problems when you are at the top of the food chain and emotionally connected; a good business coach can point these out before they snowball.
Identifying when you need a helping hand.
Part of running a successful business is recognising when it is time to outsource and delegate. As your business advisors, we are here to help you identify the skills and support your team needs to reach your business goals. Not only that, but we have a trusted network of specialists that can help you with everything from Human Resources to Marketing. Plus, we can help you implement technology that will streamline your operations with cloud accounting technology, automation, processes and productivity hacks.
