How Small Businesses Can Benefit from Having an Accountant:

Running a small business requires careful and detailed financial management. By having an experienced accountant by your side, you can unlock numerous benefits. Small Business Accountants help you to:

  1. Maintain Accurate Records: Keeping track of your financial transactions, receipts, and invoices is crucial. A skilled accountant ensures that all your records are accurate and up-to-date, enabling you to make informed business decisions.

  4. Plan for the Future: Accountants for small businesses provide valuable insights into your financial performance, helping you make informed forecasts and develop strategies for business growth. They can also assist with budgeting, cash flow management, and financial planning.

Solid experience all round

Solid experience all round\n\nI've run 2 businesses before so I'm fairly familiar with what an accountant should do, but this time I was a solo-preneur and so my usual accountant was too much for my revenue. I decided to risk it and check them out. Have been happy with everything. The freeagent software is good and does most of the work, but if I do have a question I can send an email or book a call and then we run through things together.\n\nMy particular business is not very complex so it's perfect for me and if I do hire a few more people I can see that most of the services scale out well.

My only regret is that I didn't move before!

I founded my company and did first year of accounting with a larger provider, that was cheaper and using their own accountancy software and not FreeAgent, and it's been a disaster. Not real interaction or customer care, and their software was a nightmare. I found about GoForma, their more 1-1 customer oriented approach, and FreeAgent that I found immediately much easier to use, and my only regret is that I didn't move before! Very welcoming, patient explaining everything, it just feels like they care. FreeAgent is amazing. Very happy to be with GoForma now that my company is starting gearing up.
