Business growth in the public accounting firm ties in directly with the value you offer your clients. The more value your service offers, the quicker you can grow your business. By identifying what your clients’ needs are is one way to up the value of your service offering.
1. Ensure efficiency in internal operations
There are a number of ways to bring about efficiency in the day-to-day operations of your business. Use of technology and outsourcing non-essential functions generate more time to foster favourable client relationships.
2. Diversifying service offering
Offering services that are outside your core service menu is a great way to ensure your clients engage with you more – and regularly too. Additional services offer additional revenue streams.
3. Offer a value-add advisory service
As vital as providing accurate financial statements are and complying with tax regulations, this is not the be-all and end-all of professional accounting services. Business owners also need help with strategic thinking that will take their businesses into the future. In working towards this aim, they need comprehensive financial expertise that will help them make sound business decisions.
4. Utilise break-even analysis to predict growth options
Initiate budget and forecast reporting for your clients. What are their yearly goals? Use charts and graphs to put assumptions to the test.
5. Provide comparison reports
It is essential for any business to have access to industry benchmarks to figure out their competition. There are financial benchmarking analysis tools to help you offer this handy service.
6. Utilise external management services for accountants
Partnering with an independent third party will provide you with an overview of the value of your accounting firm and strategies to help increase your ability to grow your business. Whether you need capital investment or are looking for a business exit strategy, having a soundboard and a group of advisors consulting you will help you achieve your business goals.
