Dealing with the unexpected – it’s what the self-employed do!

“Even if you don’t intend to sell your business, it makes sense to think about what you would do if you received an unexpected offer, says Feargal McCormack”.

A recent article by Feargal McCormack of PKF-FPM deals with an essential service required by businesses from their accountants, the ability to understand a businesses changing needs.

In a commercial world dominated by connectivity and an “always online” culture accountants must be more than understanding they must be proactive in their approach to your changing needs.

Your needs change with your commercial success. Early on you may have just needed a basic (budget conscious) service to keep your tax affairs in order, then came debt management, asset valuation and audit, but has the service level ever matured from there?

Given the experience your accountants have they should be able to suggest commercial strategies that you have not considered, and which allow you to improve the quality and value of your business. Talk to your accountants about being prepared for the next step.

Feargal McCormack is Managing Director of PKF FPM Accountants who have recently been placed in the prestigious Sunday Times “Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work for 2018”.
