How we work well with accountants
29 May 2024

Most of our recent leads and new clients have come from accountants that we work with or know and it made us question, why is this?

As an outsourced finance department, we understand the frustrations that can come from not being provided the information needed on time, the constant chasing and no response. We understand that producing a set of accurate accounts and tax calculations is impossible when the base financial information isn’t correct. We also know that getting to the bottom of what the numbers should be, can be time consuming and costly which is why we have a number of processes in place to try and minimise delay in getting the information. Our team work to tight deadlines and work with accuracy, minimising the back and forth to get things done correctly and ahead of deadlines. We do weekly or monthly chasing to ensure that our service is as stress free for everyone and all our documents are well formatted making life easier for accountants.

At Your Support Team, we love to work with accountants and from our experience we find that accountants we work with love working alongside us. They know that working with us means that the financial data is up to date, accurate and even more importantly, the client already has a good understanding of how their business is performing as our team compile and present frequent management accounts ready for year ends, reducing the time and effort required on the accountant’s part.

We spend the time to get to know and understand the needs of our clients and we tailor our service to work around what each client needs. We then spend the time to build relationships with our clients which in turn helps us with their accountants. We not only help with new clients but with existing clients too which can help accountants with capacity during busy periods meaning that they have more time to focus on the higher level advisory work that adds real value to the clients and their businesses.  They know that they will be fully supported with a team on hand to support with everything from initial set up to day to day queries. We provide full bookkeeping services, budgeting and forecasting as well as providing Xero support and training.

We like to think of it like a jigsaw – we work hard to sort all the pieces and make sure it all fits correctly and then the accountants use it to create a bigger picture. We think this is why, this year more than ever, we are finding accountants wanting to work with us.

So, if you’re an accountant looking to streamline your year end process and make your time more profitable by supporting your clients with more advisory services, then why not get in touch and see how we can support accountants like yourself.
