In this weeks' webinar Amanda Gascoigne, Amanda Gascoigne Consulting, will make a presentation “Utilising Your Accountant to Add to Your Business”.
Amanda Gascoigne is a Chartered Accountant, has been a small business owner for 21 years and had her own accountancy practice for 18 years working primarily with SME clients.
She has pivoted in recent years and now helps small and solo accountancy practice owners have better practices, better lives and also helps them have better relationships with their clients through her coaching and mentoring business exclusive for accountancy practice owners.
Amanda has indicated that one thing she realised while she was in an accountancy practice was that a large proportion of their new client's previous accountant, wasn’t proactive in selling them advisory services. Their business model was to simply provide the compliance services that the clients asked for and were hesitant to suggest value-added services, such as tax planning, budgeting and cashflow planning and business planning.
Amanda will share with the attendees some of the types of services that SMEs could consider investing in over the next 12 months.
Peter Towers, Managing Director, ESS Small Business will make a presentation on government grants that are available to assist small businesses and medium-sized enterprises.
