Australian SMEs Want More From Their Accountants
21 May 2018
The role of accountants continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of Australian business. A recent study by NAB reveals what today’s SMEs look for in their accountants.
We’ve had a look at some of the key data from the report, and how the services provided by AR Advisors can continue to help SMEs to reach their business goals.
Accountants are Important
Accountants are viewed as the most important professional services provider for SMEs in terms of their business performance. They are perceived to be more important than lawyers, bankers, and even family and friends.
It also appears that the role of accountants could become even more important in the future. One in five SMEs would like to receive help with their business strategy on top of the services they receive already. AR Advisors has extensive experience providing a range of business advisory services.

Fixed-Fee vs Time-Based Billing
Just 16% of SMEs would prefer time-based billing, while more than of SMEs would prefer a fixed-fee. AR Advisors offers fixed price bundles to give you an affordable way to access the proactive advice and guidance you need to help your business succeed.
One-quarter of businesses don’t believe they have adequate levels of financial literacy to run their business. AR Advisors’ virtual CFO service can help with this.
