The 7 Reasons Why ‘Business Advisory’ isn’t Working

The 7 Reasons Why 'Business Advisory' isn't working

Why ‘business advisory’ is not working – download our report below

As accountants, we’ve been told time and time again that we’re not good enough, that we need to change, that we’re not doing enough for our clients and that our firms and livelihoods are under threat. 

We’ve also been told that ‘compliance is dead’ and that we need to move from compliance to advisory. 

None of that is true. 

As you know, the demand for compliance services is as strong as ever. And, if the last two years has taught us anything, it’s that compliance is vital for our small business clients and is here to stay.

But as we also know: to continue to deliver compliance only (or compliance mainly) will impact our margins, our ability to recruit and retain great talent, and our ability to retain and service our ideal clients.

Potential realised. 

Potential realised

As accountants we all know that potential ought to be realised.

That’s true whether it’s in ourselves, our team or indeed in our clients.

We’re already doing business advisory

You and I both know so many accountants who are emphatic in their belief and desire to make a difference to the lives of their clients. Many of us are already doing so, combining compliance AND advisory.

Maybe we’re not doing it in a structured way. Perhaps we’re not getting paid (enough) for doing so. Possibly we’re not empowering our team to get involved.

We’ve all heard the excuses: “Only our top clients are availing of these services.” “It’s almost impossible to scale.”

And we might even find ourselves believing the myth that (with time constraints in dealing with existing workloads, regulations and legislation) “our senior team have little time to deliver even more advisory.”

The industry, vendors and we ourselves have over-complicated business advisory.

It shows you how you can apply that reality to your firm: how you really can make sure you become a standout firm and realise the full potential of you, your team and your clients. Importantly too, you’ll see how you can finally get paid what you’re really worth.
