Three ways your accountant can ensure you get a stress free break this summer

Despite yearning for a break, many business owners and entrepreneurs also find themselves dreading the thought of leaving their business – even if it’s just for a few days, never mind for a week or more. After all, who knows what you’ll come back to!

Does that sound familiar?

If so, read on for three reasons your accountant is your key to taking a break from work this summer. 

Robust planning

Whether you need a sound business plan that realistically sets out your goals or help with comprehensive cash flow forecasting, your accountant is the ‘go to’ person. They have the skills and experience to create robust plans that will give a level of predictability to your business, in turn allowing you to make well informed decisions based on reliable data. 

For example, if you are one of the main income generators in your business, they can help you plan ahead so that any dip in income while you’re away won’t have an unexpected impact further down the line. 

Knowledge is power

Ask your accountant to close the gaps in your knowledge when it comes to the numbers in your business. If you’re not completely clear about the differences between margin and markup or gross and net profit, or you don’t know why your profit figures and the cash in the bank aren’t the same, ask them to explain it to you. 

Having a deep understanding of your business’ financial position is empowering – and the more you understand, the more confident you can be that taking a little timeout to have some fun won’t spell disaster for your business!

They’ve got it under control 

Or at least they should have!

All joking aside, most business owners engage an accountant when their business finances get too complicated for them to deal with themselves. So it stands to reason that your accountant will have all financial matters firmly under control. 

From payroll to tax, business structure to management accounts, any accountant worth their salt will take care of this for you which means you can focus on other areas of your business – like resource planning so you can take a little time off!
