The Importance Of Accounting

From staying on top of taxes and expenses to submitting tax returns, managing cash flow, preparing budgets, doing financial statements and accounts and developing business plans, the financial side of running a small business or operating as a sole trader is where many entrepreneurs severely struggle. Without a background or education in management and financial accounting, accounts management proves a nightmare.

Most small business owners take on the headache and heartache of managing their company accounts themselves or with the help of a part-time or junior assistant in attempt to cut costs. However, the potential implications of incorrect accounting are too severe. Save yourself hassle, time and a significant amount of money in the long run by outsourcing your accounts management to Watson & Watt, one of the leading accounting companies in Australia.

Watson & Watt are your full service provider of accounting and bookkeeping for small business. When it comes to accounting and bookkeeping tasks, our knowledge and expertise knows no bounds. While some bookkeeping and accounting firms focus only on taxation or payroll, we look after it all.

Your Own Accounting and Bookkeeping Team

We do things a little differently at Watson & Watt. We’re not the type of accountants you have to chase who are busy juggling books upon books of clients, with minimal time to dedicate to each. What we focus on is developing partnerships and long-term relationships with clients. We work with a select few companies to ensure that we can dedicate the time and focus they need and deserve.The Watson & Watt effectively bolt-on your business as your very own accounting and bookkeeping team. We embed ourself in your business and get to know your accounts and plans inside out.

We take the time to listen to your goals and objectives to ensure we can proactively provide the best financial advice and use our insight from managing your budgets and financial statements to provide the strategic direction you need to drive the business forward.

Why outsource your accounting and bookkeeping?

Many small business owners try to keep their accounting and bookkeeping tasks in house, taking on the bulk of the responsibilities themselves. From our experience, this can unfortunately be the downfall of many SMEs. Outsourcing your cumbersome, mind-boggling accounting and bookkeeping tasks to an expert small business accounting firm offers several benefits.

Error Free Accounting

Accounting errors prove very costly for small businesses and when managed in-house, can be a frequent occurrence. Without financial background or knowledge, it can be difficult to manage accounts and file statements without making mistakes.

When you outsource your accounting and bookkeeping tasks to a firm like Watson & Watt, accounting errors and any resulting financial implications and penalties become a thing of the past.

You can rest assured that your accounts are always kept up-to-date, detailed and accurate, keeping the tax office of your back!

Free Up Time To Focus On More Important Matters

Rather than burying your head in the books and spending hours crunching numbers every week, leave that to us. By outsourcing your accounting and bookkeeping responsibilities, you can free up time to focus on your business and your home and family life.

An Expert Opinion

As a small business owner, being able to bounce your queries, issues and ideas about your business off a seasoned financial expert is invaluable.

Establishing an SME can often bring periods of uncertainty and unknown, so it’s good to have a small business financial expert there to confide and consult in. You can stay reassured that you are making the right financial decisions for your business.

[Who are we?]

We know you're not Googling accountants for fun.  

You're here because you're not getting the advice, service or help you want.  

Maybe you're just starting out, or maybe you've been doing whatever it is you do for years.  Either way you're looking for an accountant that will be right for your business.

There's thousands of accountants you can work with, and of course we do all the usual stuff you'd expect from an accountant like financial statements, tax returns, fringe benefits tax, Business Activity Statements, tax planning and more.  

There's nothing special about any of that, so how are we different?

Honestly we're not for everyone - and not everyone is for us.

If you're looking for a super serious, iron your undies bean counter - we're not it.

If you're looking for down to earth, practical people, who believe you can have a personality and still be professional - then we're in with a shot. Because all tax accountants can do a tax return - it's the relationship you have with your advisor that matters.

More than filing in forms

We've got more to offer to businesses than just filing in forms.  We work with business owners to set a tax strategy, and then implement it.    But to plan your taxes we need to know you, whether you want to reinvest in the business, take more cash off the table for your personal life or start a whole new business. Once we know what you want to do, we work with you to do it in the most tax effective manner.

A Safe Set of Hands

The right accountant for you is the one you trust. You should be able to trust they will get your tax returns, Business Activity Statements, and Fringe Benefits taxes lodged on time and correctly.  You shouldn't have to second guess whether they've got your affairs under control. You've got enough to do running your business, you shouldn't have to worry about your accountant too.
