Alex loves business and gives regular presentations to those wanting to learn about the accountancy and tax part of running their own business. He helps break down the barriers that people face in running their own business and how to maximise their earnings. The biggest enjoyment that Alex gets from his role as an accountant is to work with people from all walks of life and most importantly helping them with their money. Here are Alex's top 5 reasons why you should use an accountant.

1 Save you time – As a business person, your priority is to generate business and fulfil the work you have, rather than using up critical time in non-value adding activities like doing the paperwork.

2 Reduce your tax liability – A good accountant will understand how to save you money and be able to provide advice on the most tax efficient way of running your business.

3 Prevent you from tax penalties and fines – Keeping ontop of the paperwork and avoiding any late penalty fines is key. Having an accountant makes sense so you don’t have to worry about looming dates, be familiar with the latest legislation and ensure you never miss a tax deadline.

4 Help you grow your business – A good accountant will be a great source of advice and contacts in helping you grow and develop your business.

5 Remove your tax worries – having to deal with all the different taxes, e.g. PAYE, VAT, income tax, corporation tax etc. is often daunting. Your accountant will prepare everything you need, saving your money and bringing you peace of mind and allowing you to concentrate on running your business.
