The value of a good Certified Public Accountant . . .

By Matthew Leslie (San Diego CPA)
Why is it essential for a Business or Medical Practice to hire a good Certified Public Accountant?
A good Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is like a really good partner, someone who is able to listen to your concerns and then offer good business advice.  Their input can be invaluable to the business or medical practice success.  If you want a smooth running business, consider the following:
A good CPA has usually specialized in various business dealings during his/her career and can offer invaluable help, experience and knowledge when you need it.
They can also save your business or medical practice thousands of dollars by implementing more efficient routines for accounting, administration, payroll and human resource functions, thereby freeing up time for you and your employees to run your business or practice more effectively.
Your CPA should be able to help improve collection on accounts receivables; set-up follow-up routines to ensure no accounts due are left unsettled; which means more money to your business or medical practice!
A good CPA can help with valuable advice for the business decisions you may be considering (i.e. expanding, employee issues, firing an employee, hiring outside help, etc.); which can help steer you in the right direction or give options to consider when making critical business decisions.
Not only can they can provide helpful insights into what should be considered when making a major purchase, but also lay out the costs vs. the benefits to leasing, etc.
They can also help negotiate contacts, leases, mergers and/or any other business dealing that a business/practice owner is contemplating.
In addition, they can help safeguard your business assets and also set-up good internal controls to help prevent fraud and weaknesses in your administrative and accounting functions (see article below).
Your CPA should be able to save you money on your payroll taxes, year-end corporate tax returns and also make sure you do not get hit with penalties and late fees, etc.
They should be able to help make you and your staff accounting/administrative duties much more effective and efficient; thereby increasing your bottom line!
