Business owners have a lot on their plate. When your business is still growing, you are always reluctant to spend additional money on something you think you can do on your own. Sometimes you can’t make it all – no matter how hard you tried. You’ll just end up messing something up. If you’re in two minds whether to hire an accountant or not, you need to ask yourself these 3 questions:
If you’ve had some formal education in accounting, you know the terminology and you’ve had experience in working as an accountant – then maybe you don’t need an accountant. Anything other than that – you definitely need to hire one.
Tax regulations are like another language if you don’t understand them. You don’t want to mess with something you don’t understand. An accountant can help you with various tax deductions and credits you can take, and they can even predict taxes that you’ll owe. Plus – you won’t be hit with any penalties and fines.
If so, you definitely need an accountant. Investors always want a detailed report and only an accountant can give you that. In addition to that, if you’re planning to ask for a loan or need additional funding from your investors, you will need to have a highly detailed business plan.
