How Technology is Transforming Accounting
The role of Accountants is changing each year. Clients are looking for more robust services beyond bookkeeping, and want their Accountant to manage financial and tax planning, business recommendations, and more. Accountants must use technology to better serve their clients and scale their practice.
As compliance regulations and HMRC requirements for payroll and taxes change, Accountants must stay ahead of changes to ensure their clients maintain compliant payroll and tax payments each month. Certain industries have regulatory bodies that also require compliance measures, so clients often look to their accountants to manage all of those changes as well.
Using technology to manage client payroll can quickly free up time for accountants to provide business and tax consulting to clients instead of manually managing payroll. Turning your practice into an advisory versus just bookkeeping ensures your clients will come to you for help with a variety of tax, business, and payroll concerns. By reducing the amount of time you spend on payroll you can focus more on your client’s longer term needs instead of just what needs to be done each month.
Accountants can begin to evaluate your clients’ internal procedures, systems, recommend new IT solutions where necessary, and provide assessments of the overall business to help clients reach their future goals. By using technology and providing solutions for your clients, you can move beyond bookkeeping and provide vital services to your clients.
