LBCA Accountants in Bedfordshire
When looking for an accountant in Bedfordshire it can be very intimidating. The whole point of getting an accountant is so that you don’t have to worry about understanding the finer points of financial management and accounting, but in order to make sure that you are handing your finances over to someone that does you need to talk through with them what you need doing and what they can do for you. This can mean having a conversion where there are a number of terms you don’t understand or are not extensively familiar, and if they are not explained to you, you have no way of know if you are getting the services you want or need, and not paying for services you don’t.
You don’t have money to burn so a Bedfordshire accountant should only provide you with the financial services you need, and not charge you extra for what you don’t. If you only need your personal tax sorted once a quarter, a good accountant won’t insist on a full look into every aspect of your finances. They will however make sure you understand what they are doing and why. Terminology that they use on a daily basis may be easy to them, but they recognize that it isn’t to you, and so will explain things in layman’s terms instead of keeping you in the dark, and without patronizing you.
By understanding how your finances and taxes are being calculated and how the system works you can better optimise your tax returns, making sure you declare what you need to and also claim each and every expense you are entitled to. Even smaller ones add up, for example a daily bus ticket of £2 adds up to an expense of over £500, which you shouldn’t be paying tax on. Your accountant will encourage you to keep receipts and assess whether they are legitimate business expenses without stepping outside the strict tax laws and risking any form of prosecution.
