Hiring an accountant is a sign that your business is stepping up and growing. However, it’s difficult to determine when exactly you need an accountant, so here are five signs to look out for.

 

  1. You’re spending too much time on your finances

Spending 2-3 hours each week to manage your finances isn’t much, but if you’re forced to spend a large chunk of your time on it, then it may be more time-efficient to hire an accountant.

 

  1. You’ve made mistakes in the past regarding your taxes

Tax-related mistakes can be devastating for a business, and missing your tax deadline is usually a big issue that cannot be ignored. We suggest hiring an accountant if you’re worried about your tax responsibilities.

 

  1. You’ve got better things to focus on

If you’re actively involved in the development or marketing of your products and services, it’s important to consider freeing up some spare time by hiring an accountant.

 

  1. You’re growing your team

If you’re deciding on new team members to hire, an accountant might be worth considering to make your business more productive.

 

  1. Your business is getting larger

Be it expanding into new markets or developing new products, a growing business is going to require a lot of maintenance which means less time to spend on accounting. This is where an accountant can help make your business more efficient. 

 

Luckily, even if you’re not quite ready to hire an accountant, there are plenty of excellent tools available to help you manage your finances on your own. If you’re willing to spend a few hours each week (depending on the size of your business) then we suggest using some of the digital tools mentioned below that could help you manage your financial situation.
