5 Compelling Reasons to Hire an Accountant for Your Tax Matters

Why you should engage a professional accountant.

Tax is complicated. Filing tax returns can prove to be a stressful and traumatic process when you’re not aware of the process and the laws and regulations that govern it. In most cases, owners of small and medium businesses don’t know much about tax. This creates a number of problems for the business and the owners.

There is a simple solution to these problems – hiring a professional accountant’s services. However, most business owners are reluctant to do that, mainly because they are unaware of the following advantages that an accountant offers:

1. They Know the Laws and Regulations and They Comply

The HMRC has a detailed set of compliance requirements for all businesses and tax payers. Often new businesses are unfamiliar with them or the way to navigate them. The accountant knows the law. They know what HMRC wants and requires and what’s the best possible way to get that done to honour compliance and legal requirements. It’s their job. It’s what they do best, and as a result of their expertise you don’t have to worry about it  a moment longer.

2. Reduced Tax Liability

No, we are not referring to any sort of tax avoidance or tax evasion. A professional tax accountant can counsel you on tax efficient methods of business operations. This can allow you to save a considerable amount of money that is otherwise paid as tax to HMRC. With their expertise they can advise you on the most efficient use of tax incentives and business support schemes given your business’ current circumstances. They can help you understand the tax process better and save you money through that knowledge, too.

3. Tax Planning

Tax planning is important. It is this planning that allows a business to keep up with its tax obligations through efficient utilisation of the resources available to it. The accountant can help your business with proper tax planning. This may include making arrangements with the HMRC for deferred payments in times of difficulty or setting aside tax money for later payments when the cash flows are healthy.

4. You Know Exactly Where You Stand with the HMRC

When your taxes are being handled by an accountant, you can count on being up to date with your tax obligations. This includes payments, filings, refunds, and even accuracy. There are times when HMRC makes mistakes too. These mistakes might not be obvious to business owners, but accountants are trained to check for and organise the business’ taxes properly.

5. Saves Time

Tax isn’t easy to understand. Although HMRC provides comprehensive guides to help taxpayers understand the system – they are much too detailed for small business owners to spend a large amount of their time reading and understanding them. That time could be better spent on ironing out business plans and growth strategies instead; and that is possible when you have a professional tax accountant handling your tax affairs.

Whether it’s personal tax returns, tax calculations, submitting VAT returns or other business taxes, a professional accountant is your best bet for a worry-free solution.

We engaged AK Book-keeping some two and a half years ago, from the outset their communication has been excellent. We were provided with a schedule of monthly costs and a clear indication of what was included. To date we have had no reason to consider changing from AK Book-keeping as their service has been reliable, efficient and cost effective.

AK Book-keeping introduced us to Xero accounting system from the outset and for a reasonable monthly fee we benefit from all the Xero facilities available and have access to view our account, use data and monitor our performance and it is all relatively simple. We would recommend AK Book-keeping and the Xero system.
