What Will An Accountant Need to Know About My Finances?

In order for an accountant to gain a comprehensive idea of your of your business’s financial state, you will need to provide certain information. Accountants handle 5 main parts of a business’s finances:

Assets – An asset is anything directly owned by a business. It could be in the form of cash, equipment, property or investments.
Liabilities – A liability is anything a company owes. This could be a loan or a mortgage, or taxes owed to HM Revenue and Customs like VAT, NI, income tax, etc.
Equity – Equity is a company’s total assets minus liabilities, or in other words, the sum of what a company owns without owing to creditors
Expenses – Expense is the cost of goods or services provided by another company or organisation
Income – Income is the excess of revenue after expenses for an accounting period

How Regularly Will I Need to See my Accountant?

It is entirely up to you. How often you see your accountant will depend on your personal or business requirements. If you are an individual seeking personal finance advice, you may only want to see your accountant once a year. Similarly, if you are the proprietor of a small business, you may only require an accountant to help with your annual tax returns. When you contact an accountant, be sure to state your exact requirements and they will be able to predict the length of the job and how often you will need to be in contact.
