Bean counters.  Number crunchers.  Tax nerds. For accountants, the brash reality is the profession has a long-standing  stereotype. Fortunately, as our world quickly transforms, so has the role of accountants.  For this long consistent profession, it’s about time a dash of excitement was introduced.

The impetus for finding an accountant remains centered around compliance activities – tax and audit.  However, we’ve found that startups are looking for much more than these typical accounting services. They want a trusted advisor to help set the foundation for a successful business.  They want a partner to help navigate the ups and downs of business cycles. They want guidance and expertise that expands beyond accounting and into business strategy, cybersecurity, outsourced accounting and finance services, software implementation, and state and local tax compliance.

So, the most forward thinking, innovative accountants are adapting.  As business owners, members of management and timely taxpayers, what does this mean for you?  It means the opportunity to tap into an expanded wealth of knowledge. It means the added value of having a team of professionals that will not only crunch your numbers and file your taxes, but who will strategically help achieve your personal and business goals.

To get the most out of today’s accountants, reach out to your accountant and tap into the comprehensive services offered by transformative accounting firms.
