Entrepreneurs are fascinating people. They eat, live and sleep business. They live to create and build businesses. Their mind is always in gear with ideas to make money. They have a new idea about every five minutes on how to make money in a new and different way. They're our front line soldiers in growing the economy and getting the economy going again.

The one thing entrepreneurs are not good at is financial record keeping. They don't have the training needed to file complicated tax returns or the time to be familiar with tax law. That's where a good accountant can be of vital help.

Here are five ways an accountant can help your business:

1. Accountants can interpret and make sense out of your financial information. Your business generates huge amounts of data. Your invoices and accounts receivables can tell a lot about your business and its possible future. An accountant can interpret and organize this data. They can tell you if your business is growing or heading off a cliff. An accountant can give you the necessary information for you to make critical decisions in an intelligent way.

2. Accountants can see things clearer than the business owner. The business owner is stuck out in the field running the day-to-day operations of the business. They are not able to see the whole picture. An accountant can see things from a different perspective that would otherwise be missed. Accountants see the big picture and when you see the big picture you see new horizons and opportunities that can be taken advantage of.

3. Accountants have experience in the business world. Accountants are not only doing work for your business but they are doing work for many other businesses. They see the intricate workings of other types of industries and are able to use this knowledge to help your business. Not being locked into just one business as the entrepreneur is gives them a broad perspective. This perspective makes them a valuable asset to your company. Their experience lends itself to being a help in planning your business growth.

4. Accountants understand taxes. Taxes are not a simple problem for a company. The laws change almost every year and keeping up on them is a job unto itself. Rules and regulations having to do with payroll and government departments need to be kept up on. Your accountant can do this for you. Using an accountants knowledge of tax law will guarantee, you will be paying the minimum in taxes.

5. Accountants will see you through tax audits. When the tax man sends you a letter that you owe back taxes, there is no more frustrating and daunting experience. Clients of an accounting firm like are glad they are there to help them through all there accounting needs.

Can you survive without an outside accounting service? Maybe. But the help, guidance and knowledge given by a good accountant can be the catalyst that will make your business thrive.
