WHY DO YOU NEED AN ACCOUNTANT AT ALL?

The risks for businesses operating without a qualified accountant are extremely high.

Firstly, the accounting records may not be up to date, causing delays in the submission of statutory returns (such as VAT, PAYE, Income Tax) which will incur heavy penalties and interest.

Secondly, the accounting records may be incorrect, leaving management exposed to making the wrong decision based on wrong information. Statutory returns will be completed based on the wrong information.

The risk of fraud is also very high. Qualified accountants have the knowledge to detect fraudulent activities through variance analysis and will alert management of such activities.

Qualified accountants, looking at past trends, may notice possible problems within the operation. If management is made aware of the problem, they can institute preventative measures to avoid future losses.

Qualified accountants are required to keep up to date with the latest accounting policies. If the business does not employ an accountant, it stands the risk of incorrect reporting, leaving it vulnerable to heavy penalties and interest charges. In addition, the company may be audited by the South African Revenue Services (SARS).

That is why it is so important for any business to get the best accountant they can afford. Companies do not see the value-added service the accounting department provides. Yet, it is the most important department of the business! Incorrect accounting records and fraud can ruin any business, regardless of its size.
