As trusted advisers it’s important for accountants to recognise and act on client pain points, to assist in relieving business owners from daily stresses, even if it’s working on their work life balance. Accountants are often the first point of contact for business owners to turn to and with improvements in technology we have the ability to obtain greater data and a better understanding of businesses needs to assist in growth and improvements”
