Whether you’ve been handling finances solo or planning a start-up, and you need someone with financial know-how, an accountant can provide the exact services you need. An accountant provides a wide range of financial services to your business. These services could include anything from day-to-day bookkeeping and bank reconciliations to creating budgets, preparing for taxes, providing financial analysis, and even financial planning. The exact services an accountant provides depend on their specialist service and your needs as a business.

Unfortunately, the accounting profession is shrouded in mystery as, for many years, the approach has kept clients in the dark about how things work and how accountants charge their fees. Even now, some still refer to the profession as ‘the dark arts.’ Believing in these myths and misconceptions you find online can severely hamper you, and why you should avoid falling for these myths. To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Halal Bookkeeping and Tax has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about accounting.

Myth 1: You don’t need an accountant for your business

With all of the Do-It-Yourself bookkeeping software available these days, many small business owners think they do not need an accountant. Don’t believe the hype! A good accountant can help you by correcting errors you may have made in allocating your income and expenses. These errors make a big difference in your tax returns.

Myth 2: Doing your own taxes always saves you money

Doing your own taxes may save you some money in tax preparation fees but may cost you a fortune in tax savings. Accountants study the latest tax laws and rulings. They are aware of tax savings you may not be aware of because you are busy running your business.

Myth 3: Accountants are too expensive

Some small business owners do not hire accountants because they think accountants cost too much money to hire. This is a big myth. At Halal Bookkeeping and Tax, we charge reasonable fees that will not adversely affect your bottom line. Accounting expenses are a necessary expense for any business.
