When you work in a business, you want to be sure that you have either an in house accountant or an outside expert that can make sure your business is financially successful and sustainable for the long haul. I mean, with market trends always shifting and changing and the ever fluctuating beast that is consumer demand, it can be very tricky to maintain a model that allows constant success and growth. Of course, there will always be dry periods, but the question of moving forward and growing from said moments is the market of a good business that is financially stable and will be consistent over the long haul.
My company was in one of those dry periods a few years ago. It had been a rough year and we were struggling to maintain the appropriate capital to make our investments viable. I will be honest, I was worried we would go under. Of course, the gauntlet of things ran through my mind. Do we shut down? Do we cut our losses and try something new? Should I try to cook the books? None of these options sounded good, least of all the last one. It can be such an easy solution for companies to just fudge the numbers somewhere and hope for the best with the fear of getting audited looming over head. As soon as I realized that was how bad things were getting for us, I knew I had to get some outside help. Dishonesty was not an option, and I needed a professional business CPA to help me get my company back on track.
I called GHP Horwath at the recommendation of a fellow business owner, and it was the best decision I could have made for a number of reasons. GHP Horwath is not just another giant business accounting firm that deals with thousands of clients every day. It is true, they have the expertise and the clientele to match this description to be sure. However, their local firms are do not function like a factory of CPAs just trying to rush through another client. They know the local codes that are important to adhere to, and they know the best practices that you personally can use to make your company as successful and financially stable as possible.
Best of all, GHP Horwath is the best in the business when it comes to identifying market trends. As I mentioned earlier, this is a critical piece of running a business. Without this knowledge and know how, it is very tricky to plan ahead and make sure the investments you are making will pan out for you in the long term. My professional business CPA became much more than just my business’s accounting consultant. She quickly was my go to when I needed meaningful information about economic and financial turns to pay attention to.
Needless to say, my company has been significantly more stable since I started using GHP Horwath. They come highly recommended, and they do as they say- their solutions really do bring about the results you hope for!
