How much to pay for online accounts services
One of the reasons many new businesses sacrifice such a significant amount of time and productivity, rather than hiring a startup accountant, is that they may believe (especially in the early days) that they don’t have any other option.
The cost (or at least the perceived cost) of retaining an experienced, dedicated online small business accountant may seem prohibitive until a startup has established a solid customer base and is posting strong, reliable revenue figures.
Rather than paying with time, cash-poor startups should consider turning to an online accountant.
Some online accountants may just provide general bookkeeping services so you can record your income and expenses and then you would need to pay for any bolt-ons such as help with filing, financial forecasts or business plans.
Online accounting - what do you want or need?
An online accountant will often provide you with software such as Xero to input your own invoices and manage your own expenses, but there is plenty of added value you should be seeking beyond that.
It is important to have a qualified accountant who can make sure you are itemising income and expenses correctly and keeping enough aside for tax.
You need to have someone who can make sure you are on the right track in terms of the income you want and strategy of the business, while also helping reduce your tax bill.
