What makes a great accountant?

Empire Accountants – Now Servicing the Gold Coast

Recently, we’ve had 3 new clients come to us that all share a common problem.

They have been fined and penalised by the ATO for late lodgement of BAS returns, due to their previous accountant not completing and lodging their BAS on time. (Crazy we know!)

Learning of our client’s frustrations with their previous accountants, we feel obliged to answer the question; ‘What makes a great accountant?

We believe that it all comes down to the basics of providing a quality service, whether you’re an accountant, a removalist or a hairdresser, we believe you are obliged as a business owner to deliver what you promise.

In this case, if you offer BAS lodgements, they should certainly be lodged accurately and on time. If it’s anyone’s job to remember the BAS lodgement due date, it should be an accountant right!?

In our opinion. There is a simple formula to what makes a great accountant, or any business owner at that…

Quote up front, Turn up, Complete the job on time, Within budget and Follow-up.

At Empire Accountants, we genuinely care about our clients and their businesses. We understand that as business owners managing your finance, marketing, sales and staff is time-consuming and hard work! This is why you should receive a complete service from your accountant, one that ensures that managing your tax planning, end of year compliance and business growth goals are met on time and budget.

We recently opened an office in Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast and we’d love to meet with you to discuss your Gold Coast business Goals.
