From my point of view it is preferable that the “someone” be an accountant.
Surveys conducted over the last fifteen years by MYOB, CCH and various other organisations have all identified that a significant majority of small/medium enterprise operators want to access services that will contribute to “adding value” to their businesses.
Most small/medium enterprise operators agree that taxation services whilst important do not equate to “adding value to their businesses”.
To assist accountants to meet the challenge of providing a broader range of commercial services ESS BIZTOOLS has utilised our knowledge of small/medium enterprises, accountancy businesses and listed public companies to develop a range of products to assist accountants to “move beyond taxation services”.
Accountants will benefit by utilising the “preparation/training” program to get the team ready. These eleven modules take partners and accountants and other team members through a range of activities to prepare the team to offer more than taxation services.
This training includes understanding the concept of:
• “Industry Champions”
• “Product Champions”
• Utilising the “SME Needs Analysis” to assist clients to identify the additional services that they would like to receive.
