On February 14th, love is in the air. Today it’s Valentine’s Day and in many countries, it is a day dedicated to love. In this blog post we will explore ways and mean on how to make your accountant love you, of course, in a totally professional, platonic, non-romantic way!
Be prepared. Upon receipt of email or phone call from your accountant to deliver or send the documents to be able to work on your tax or VAT return, be prepared and do not leave the task to the last minute. This will leave ample time for your accountant to work on it and deliver your results by the stipulated deadline.
Organise all your documents, receipts and invoices. Compile all the paperwork you need to give to your accountant in a neat and clean file or organised neatly in a folder. This will create less of headache to your accountant to figure out what is what.
Don’t make too many calls or send too many emails. Compile the information you need to send to your accountant or queries you need to ask in an orderly manner and together to avoid having to make too many phone call or sending several emails to request information.
Pay your taxes on time. Upon submission of your tax return or VAT return, you will often need to pay directly the taxes to the government department. Do so in a timely manner so the accountant will avoid chasing you for that payment. Afterall this is your duty and responsibility.
Say thank you. This is very simple, a thank you message goes a long way to put a smile on your accountant’s face.
These are some simple ways to make your accountant love you because it will be a pleasure working with you. If you are looking for a new accountant for your business, get in touch with us today on firstname.lastname@example.org.
