Why Choose Accounting4Me?
Why You Need An Accountant like Accounting4Me?
Staying ahead of your business plan can be troublesome when you have to manage the accounting and handle bookkeeping as well, particularly since, for most independent business owners, it'll have to be done during the weekends, late nights, or even during the holidays. Hence missing out on quality time with family and friends or taking that much-needed break from work — whatever your form of draining the pressure out is.
As a business owner or entrepreneur, you're already doing a lot, on your own. The daily tasks of handling your employees (if any), or keeping up with demands from your customers, or running around after payments and debts to clear, among other things, are enough to make anyone mentally and physically exhausted. This can only lead to frustrations, bad decision making, impulsiveness, and even depression — which is the final straw, which is also what can be termed as, 'bad business practice'.
So why do some Kiwis choose to not hire an accountant? You'd be surprised to find out that, more often than not, it is not the lack of 'money', rather, it is arrogance! Some people believe they can do everything on their own. Which, quite frankly, is a positive outlook to have, in general, but business-wise, it is not practical. Your mind and your body can only handle so much.
Investing a little money on the right accountants, like us, can go a long way in shaping your business for the better, and here's why:
✔ Your tax obligations are in check and on time.
✔ Your tax returns and expenses to claim are filed.
✔ Your bookkeeping is impeccable and with proofs.
✔ Your savings don't get mixed up with your business.
✔ Your chances of getting in trouble with IRD is minimal.
✔ You have time for your personal, family, and social life.
Besides the psychological and physical effects of doing your own accounting and bookkeeping, the room for errors is enormous. Accountants like us can indefinitely help lessen your financial mistakes by ensuring the following:
✔ Records are accurate.
✔ Documents are never lost.
✔ Data-entry is in order.
✔ Tax breaks are not missed.
✔ Tax payments are on time.
✔ Books are up-to-date.
✔ Tax laws are followed.
✔ The tax amount is reduced.
✔ No errors in accounting.
✔ Smoother cashflow.
If you were to go through and checkmark all that by yourself, whether with errors or without errors, it eventually leaves you with no time for focusing on your business affairs. And growth remains stagnant. There is no business owner in the world who does not want his or her business to grow. Or at least have an opportunity to do so.
Here at Accounting4Me, we automate your bookkeeping and basic accounting (complex accounting is done by our very own IRD tax agent), thereby removing any possibilities of losing your documents even after seven years. We remind you of when you ought to update your details including sales, expenses, payroll, inventory, and more — with minimal human involvement. All along, we check and balance your books and deal with your taxes and Inland Revenue directly so you won't have to.
