As a business owner looking to maximise value from your accountant, you need a firm that goes beyond number crunching to provide strategic inputs tailored to your business. Read on to learn the key aspects to evaluate when hiring small business accountants on the Gold Coast and why KeyPoint Accountants is the right choice.

Why Good Accounting for Small Businesses is Vitally Important

If you run an SME business on the Gold Coast, having an accountant on your side is not optional. In fact, it’s essential in every business. The financial and tax compliance needs of small businesses can quickly become complex. Mistakes or oversight in areas like GST reporting, deductions and expenses, payroll, and more can lead to penalties, interest charges, and lost money that small business owners can ill afford.

Beyond just keeping your new business financially healthy and compliant, the right accountant provides invaluable advice and guidance to help you build a pathway to growth and improve the future of your business. Advisory services like cash flow analysis, budgeting, forecasting, and business structuring allow you to make strategic decisions to grow your business with confidence. Leaning on the expertise of business accountants that Gold Coast entrepreneurs and company owners have trusted for over 50 years, ensures you get the best accounting advice and maximise your net profitability.

In short, partnering with skilled small business accountants gives you both defence and offence to not only survive but thrive.

What Should SME Business Owners Look for in an Accountant?

Choosing the right accountant can mean the difference between your business barely scraping by or flourishing. The right accountant provides more than just compliance services – they become a strategic partner to drive growth. Here are some key traits to look for:

Specialised Expertise With Small Business

Not all accountants understand or cater to small family-owned and operated businesses. Boutique firms of chartered accountants that focus specifically on the small to medium business market often have more relevant and tailored experience to address your needs. This is the case with KeyPoint Accountants who has a wide range of small-business industry experience – see more on our industries page.

Personalised and Proactive Service

The best accountants get to know you and your business goals intimately. This helps them provide tailored solutions and advice. They also proactively keep you updated on opportunities or changes you need to make.

Responsiveness and Communication

Small business moves fast. You need an accountant who can keep pace and respond to your queries in a timely manner. Clear and regular communication is essential. Here at KeyPoint, we pride ourselves on standing out from the crowd in this regard. If you look through our reviews (displayed on our home page), you’ll see our strong communication is highly valued by our clients.

Forward-Looking Advice

Your accountant shouldn’t just be processing historical transactions. They should be helping analyse your numbers to provide insights and strategic business advice and forecasting that improve future performance.

The Latest Tools and Technology

Optimise efficiency by choosing an accountant who uses cloud-based solutions, automation, and other innovations. This gives you and your accountant real-time visibility for better decision-making.
