Benefits of hiring a chartered accountant
When you choose a chartered accountant to manage your finances and business, you get top-notch accounting help from a certified professional.
Chartered accountants stand apart from other accountants because they have the experience and industry-certified qualifications to provide you with a fully comprehensive, regulated service.
Here are some reasons to work with a chartered accountant:
Oversight by Professional Bodies:
Chartered accountants are certified by one of six recognised and regulated bodies. In the UK, these are:
- Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)
- Chartered Accountants Ireland (CAI)
- Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)
- Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA)
- Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW)
- Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS)
These bodies have strict codes of conduct, ensuring their members maintain high standards of integrity, objectivity, competence, confidentiality, and professional behaviour. Furthermore, all bodies are overseen by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) to ensure compliance.
Complete range of accounting services:
Complex areas of accounting such as audit, insolvency, investment business, and probate can only be handled by chartered and regulated accountants with high expertise.
Hiring a chartered accountant allows you to access a complete range of accounting services from a trusted source.
Chartered accountants offer more than just tax filing. They have in-depth knowledge of your business accounts and can provide valuable insights on maximising profits, reducing costs, managing risks, and improving finances.
Up-to-date tax legislation:
Chartered accountants stay up-to-date with tax legislation through annual professional development training. This ensures that your personal and business accounts always comply with current tax laws and that you benefit from eligible tax allowances.
Peace of Mind:
Inaccurate or unethical accounting practices can lead to significant penalties and damage your reputation.
Chartered accountants provide professional record-keeping, keeping your accounts in order and ready for audits, ensuring peace of mind for you and your business.
Chartered accountants undergo rigorous training, including at least three years of study and passing demanding exams in various areas of accounting. They also gain practical experience across different industries and clients, providing them with valuable knowledge and skills.
Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. Can I do my own accounting?
- 2. What is the difference between accounting and bookkeeping?
- 3. How can a professional accountant save me money?
Accounting can be an extremely demanding job. There are numerous rules and standards that your financial records must adhere to. Furthermore, you will have to meet deadlines all year long as an accountant.
Although you can legally handle your own accounting, you should familarise yourself with the procedure before attempting to do so. In the long run, managing your own accounts can be more time-consuming and expensive than hiring a professional.
Bookkeeping is the first step of the accounting process, so the responsibilities of a bookkeeper and an accountant often overlap. However, the key difference is that bookkeeping concerns the organisation and recording of data, while accounting focuses on the analysis and presentation of this financial data.
Finances are one of a business’s most crucial components, especially in the early stages.
While you utilise your time to handle the other aspects of your business, our qualified accountants can keep your finances up-to-date.
Organised and up-to-date accounts enable you to make better, more informed decisions. Our chartered accountants can assess your company’s profitability, ensuring you’re on course for maximum growth and implementing appropriate suggestions.
I Want to Switch Accountants. What Happens Next?
Transitioning to a new accountant might seem like a complex task. However, making the right choice for your evolving business is crucial. Take your time in this decision-making process to ensure that your chosen service aligns perfectly with your needs.
Timing plays a vital role in this transition. It’s advisable to plan the handover from your current accountant to the new one during a quieter financial period when your finances are in good shape.
After making the decision to switch accountants, you should compose a termination letter notifying your current accountant of the change and kindly asking them to forward the necessary information to your new accountant.
You can then register with your new accountant.
To register with CTT Accountancy, get in touch with a member of our team today, and we’ll guide you through the process.
As a part of our initial process, we’ll ask for your consent through a newly generated 64-8 form, granting us the authority to manage HMRC affairs on your behalf, specifically for tax-related purposes. Next, we will send a letter of engagement for you to sign, outlining the services you will receive. Subsequently, our team will contact your former accountant to secure professional clearance, ensuring a smooth transition of all relevant accounting information to us.
Once these tasks are completed, we can start work on your accounts.
