Accounting advisory services is a phrase that sounds very vague to a lot of people. That’s why we decided to make a playbook outlining exactly what these services are so you can start using them to your advantage.  

Why do businesses need accounting advisory services?

Accountants can provide custom advice and opinions to companies about strategic moves they should – or shouldn’t – make.

It’s important to note that successful advisory cannot exist without trust from the client. A good accountant listens to their client and learns their pain points so that they can help solve them – making the business healthier in every aspect.

Great accounting advisory services usually occur when the firm thinks of itself as the client’s go-to for any question they might have.

So, what are the specific areas an accountant can help with?

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Give advice: Many business owners feel completely lost when it comes to navigating their financials. Accountants can help them feel less lost and more in control. Understanding your financials can give you the clarity to feel confident about the way you run your business.
  • Be a coach: It’s important to remember that each business has drastically different needs. Good coaching comes in when each business has a customized game plan for what they need (and who they are.) Do you need an investment strategy? Want to purchase assets? Accountants can help you work through these needs with clarity.
  • Be an objective party: As in other parts of life, business owners often lose sight of perspective when it comes to their own business. They operate the same way, year after year, without stopping to realize that they have options that might make things better – and increase their revenues. That’s where accounting advisory services come in: a good accountant will learn about what you’re doing now and what you want to accomplish – filling in the blanks with their expertise and knowledge of technology and the latest developments.

Accounting advisory services types

  • Cash flow forecasting, revenue projections, and budgets: These are some of the essentials of accounting advisory services.
  • Technology: Accountants have the technology that companies need to understand and help their business. And no , it’s not just QuickBooks.
  • Compliance: Financial statements, financial reporting issues, and statutory filings are all in an accountant’s toolbox. Accounting advisory services can range anywhere from discussions with a client to financial reporting and modeling. There’s a reason so many businesses hire accounting advisory services – it’s because accounting advisory services are a lot more complex (and fruitful) than some realize.

Financial data has uses most companies don’t even dream about. Decision-making is easier (and smarter) when data is used. In fact, it elevates the game to a whole new level. Accountants have access to this type of data and the know-how to use it to the company’s advantage – whether that comes to minimizing risks or driving revenue growth.
