Why contact a chartered accountant for your business?
What is a chartered accountant?
A certified public accountant is a person who has a DEC (Diploma of Public Accountancy) after completing 8 years of study including a 3-year internship in a firm. This professional is registered with the Order of Chartered Accountants.
Reasons for working with a chartered accountant:
When you are a business owner, working hand in hand with a chartered accountant is key if you want to grow and be supported.
This professional gives advice to the company regarding entity creation, by helping the entrepreneur decide how to choose between the different legal statuses of companies. They are able to assist you with drafting bylaws, the deposit of the share capital, publishing an announcement in a legal newspaper and filing the registration file of your business structure. Also, the chartered accountant creates the obligatory tax documents of their clients.
The chartered accountant is often solicited for advice on tax and social optimisation. They are also able to create work contracts, payroll or proceeding to social security declarations.
During its existence, the company can also rely on a chartered accountant not only for one-off services, for example, to modify statutes, but also recurring services such as taking the minutes of a general assembly. However, it is important to note that in order for the accountant to make these modifications, the company must already be supported by the accountant in question.
Multiple reasons to hire a chartered accountant:
It is advised, but not obligatory to hire an accountant. Here are some reasons to hire one:
- Guarantees the proper keeping of accounts in order to avoid a tax audit and to avoid financial penalties;
- Allows you to keep up to date with the latest legislation and thus to comply with the current regulations
- Delegating the accounting saves time for the company manager to concentrate more on the development of his company
- Finally, it looks more credible to financial partners and customers.
