Accountant working on business taxes

Tax season can be a stressful time for anyone, let alone when you own a business. The stakes are high and you can’t afford to have errors. From dealing with 1099s to looking for ways to maximize your deductions, it can be overwhelming. That’s where a business accountant can help.

Just like you know the ins and outs of your business, accountants know the ins and outs of filing business taxes. You might be tempted to prepare your own taxes to save money, but the benefits of hiring an accountant pay for themselves. Plus, when you hire a business service firm like 4Corner, you’re getting an ally who can help with much more than tax filing. 

Peace of Mind

When it comes to taxes, especially for businesses, there are many guidelines to follow. And those tax laws and guidelines change regularly. Whether it’s a new law, expiring law, or any other type of change, accountants will be up-to-date with the changing tax guidelines and laws so you don’t have to be. When you hire an accountant, you’re mitigating risks associated with not fully understanding the tax rules and regulations, giving you peace of mind. 

Available Outside of Tax Season

Often, people only think of hiring an accountant when tax season approaches. an accountant can provide a variety of financial assistance beyond filing taxes, they can help you get ahead of the game and possibly save you money. accountants provide a level of service tax software simply cannot. 

They’ll be there for tax-related questions, audit assistance, and, most importantly, proactive tax planning strategies. When you hire an accountant, you have a financial expert on your team. They can offer advice on ways to avoid a big year-end bill, take advantage of tax credits or deductions, or how to start saving for retirement. 

Improve Bookkeeping

As a business, it’s important to maintain proper bookkeeping so that you can better analyze and manage your cash flow. This helps you see a more accurate picture of your financial situation. And in many cases, it’s a requirement. 

Accountants can help with bookkeeping as they are qualified to help create, maintain, and monitor your financial books. This helps with planning, managing finances, reporting and gives your accountant the information they need to properly categorize expenses and revenues. Even if you don’t hire an accountant, we highly recommend hiring a bookkeeper.  

Maximize Tax Deductions 

One of the major reasons businesses should hire an accountant for tax purposes is that they can help maximize deductions. Most business owners understand that there are tax deductions available, but are not sure of how to find all of them. This is where an accountant shines. They know how to unearth those deductions and apply them properly. The more deductions, the more money you get back, which helps ease tax burdens associated with businesses. 

Saves You Time

Your time is valuable. So next to maximizing tax deductions, this is another major reason to hire an accountant to do your business taxes — saves you time. And as the old adage goes, “time is money.” It can take a great deal of time and energy to prepare and file your business’ taxes, especially if you’ve never done so before. accountants are proficient in what they do, so they’re able to get the work done, not only done quicker but done right. Plus, the time you would have spent preparing your taxes could be spent on your business instead.
