Every day we meet people whose small businesses are struggling; either the business is stalled or heading towards closure. I see the same facial expressions frustration, fear and inner turmoil. And I hear the same words – I don’t know what to do!

Time and again we resist the temptation to wish that they had come to us earlier. But often it was beyond their control. If you see your accountant once a year and your business has been slowly sliding downhill over that year, you are in a very vulnerable situation. If you work with your accountant throughout the year, with constant monitoring you will be able to see if there is a downhill trend and react accordingly.

Being alone in your business as the sole decision maker can be very stressful, you can be unsure of which way to go. A lack of decisiveness will put you and your business in a downward spiral, with your staff following close behind, losing their drive, focus and loyalty. The cold hard reality is that your future success hinges totally on your commitment to change.

If you are working with an accountant who is supporting you, discussing options with you, advising you, you don’t have to make the decisions alone. You can react to changes in the marketplace, you can respond, you can change.

Change is notoriously difficult, we all like to stay on our routine tracks, and veering off course can seem perilous. But much of the success of businesses like yours lies in their ability to adapt. For businesses that work with us on our Build Your Business Better system, they are able to be adaptable. With our emphasis on constantly assessing and reviewing your business we are able to make constant small adjustments to your business, so that we are fluidly evolving to maintain an optimum place in your marketplace.

Don’t simply use your accountant once a year to file your tax return, use an accountant who will be part of your team throughout the year. With TLA services we will help you grow your business in the way that you want to. Why not call us today for a no obligation, confidential chat about your business on 01905 21411
