We hope that everyone has had a restful Christmas break and wish everyone a Happy New Year.
At the beginning of a new year it is a great time to not only detox your body (after the excesses of Christmas and the New Year), but is also a good time to look at your business and finances – what positive changes could be made? You may want happy and healthier finances, you want to achieve growth, start-up your own business, or just get a better grip on your finances – “out with the old, and in with the new”.
According to recent research carried out by SAGE, SMEs are placing more trust in their accountants than they have previously. However, the research showed that 40% could get more from their relationships with their accountants than just having bookkeeping, and the managing/filing of their annual accounts. Only one fifth use their accountants for advice and general business planning!
We work closely with all our clients and we hope that they consider us an integral part of their business. Take a look at what your accountant actually does for you, the service they give you, their value added services, are you able to speak to them at times convenient to you, and their genuine interest in your business.
At Clarand we are very much looking forward to the year ahead with what it will bring us, and we are off to great start already. We hope that you are looking forward to the year ahead and wish you a very prosperous and happy 2014!
