Do you need a local accountant?
November 11, 2011 | By Nimbus |
With the advances in modern technology, do you need an accountant who is local? We have offices covering Brighton, Hove and Worthing, but we service clients all over the UK. How is this possible and why do clients not need to sit in our office any more?
To start with, the cost of visiting your accountant is more than you would think. There is the time taken to travel to your accountant, travel expenses and that formal meeting will probably be added to your annual accountant’s bill.
How does Nimbus Accounting eliminate these costs? We encourage a proactive dialogue between the accountant and client. We have turned the traditional accountant’s model on its head by contacting our clients on a monthly bases, to discuss the future rather than the conventional annual meetings where the accountant reviews historic data.
How can you get the same feeling of being in the office and having the full attention of your accountant, Skype! Skype is a great communication tool, not only can you chat to your accountant but you can see then too, something that is obviously missing when you speak on the phone. This provides the client and accountant the feeling of meeting and greeting, without physically shaking hands.
All you need is a good Internet connection and a webcam and you are away.
In summary, you do not need a local accountant, which opens up your choice of accountant. Nimbus Accounting are a firm of forward looking qualified accountants based in Brighton & Hove, but service clients thought the UK. We offer fixed fee packages that include unlimited contact via Skype, so you are never on your own.
