The Oxford Dictionary states that metamorphosis is “a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one”
Well I believe this aptly describes what is happening to current day accountants and the services they have to offer.
Accountants should provide a service in which business owners / decision makers spend ZERO time on: spreadsheets bookkeeping, dealing with HMRC, payroll, VAT etc. Business owners shouldn’t be spending more than 30 minutes a week on their books.
The days are long gone where accountants met with their clients once a year, twice if they were conscientious and charged fees every time they had a phone call or gave out advice.
Today’s business owners require service when they need it and regular updates and advice on how the business is performing and even more importantly how it can improve.[embeddoc url=”http://www.kent-fms.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/At-a-glance.docx” viewer=”microsoft”]
