Be a Full-Service Financial Provider


Expand Your Business by Becoming a Full-Service Financial Provider

You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one. I don’t believe in little plans. I believe in plans big enough to meet a situation which we can’t possibly foresee now. —Harry S. TrumanTo educate the intelligence is to expand the horizon of its wants and desires. —James Russell Lowell

A business woman smiles in a doorway.You may work on the side as an accountant or bookkeeper. Perhaps you work in a full-time job performing accounting functions. If you’ve ever thought about either starting your own business as a financial provider, or if you’re already in business for yourself but wonder how to expand your services, then you’ve come to the right place.Universal Accounting Center (UAC) is in the business of seeing that accountants, bookkeepers and tax preparers succeed. And we have to admit, you’ll probably find the most success if you become a full-service financial provider, the one-stop shop for your clients’ financial needs. You can do that by earning two valuable designations and mastering one software program: the Professional Bookkeeper (PB) designation, the Professional Tax Preparer (PTP) designation, and the Professional Bookkeepers Guide to QuickBooks.

The Value of the Professional Bookkeeper Designation

Over 85% of the opportunities in the accounting field are within small businesses. Universities prepare their students for corporate accounting which doesn’t address small business needs. More than 50% of small businesses fail, and much of that failure can be attributed to lack of accounting expertise. Imagine contributing to the success of small business, which will build your own community while providing you with job satisfaction and security.At Universal Accounting, we understand the needs of the small business like nobody else. UAC has designed a curriculum specific to the needs of small businesses, and Universal Accounting offers the most complete small business accounting course anywhere. The Professional Bookkeeper Designation assures clients that you have been properly trained in small business accounting and will help you know what those clients need most from you.

The Value of the Professional Tax Preparer Designation

Perhaps your accounting and bookkeeping practice is thriving. But whether or not you could use more clients, adding tax services to your menu could increase your income. How? Tax professionals charge $100+ per hour preparing individual and business tax returns. Many tax preparers make more money in the months leading up to the tax deadline than other professionals make all year long! Since all individuals and businesses, small or large, are required to file taxes, tax preparation is a respected skill that will always be in demand. And many of your current clients would probably be happy to have you file their taxes as well as perform the standard accounting services you currently provide.Also consider who your clients will trust to file their taxes. Countless individuals are scammed each year by people who claim to know what they’re doing. More and more are becoming leery of tax preparers without credentials. The Professional Tax Preparer Designation will put many of those individuals at ease, assuring them that you have been properly trained in tax preparation.

The Professional Bookkeepers Guide to Quickbooks

Nearly 80% of small businesses use Intuit’s Quickbooks software. While other programs may be useful, QuickBooks has definitely captured the small business market. Learning QuickBooks will not only help you keep more efficient records, but it enables you to teach your clients how to use the software so that you can get the information you need, making your job much easier. Add to that your ability to introduce QuickBooks services to your menu (QuickBooks consultation and set-up services) and you’ve got a well-rounded business with loads of earning potential.UAC’s Professional Bookkeepers Guide to Quickbooks Pro will teach you teach you how to do the basic transactions, how to reconcile accounts, what the program does with its data, and a basic understanding of fundamental accounting principles. We have also included about 18 hours of bookkeeping instruction and a complete detailed presentation of QuickBooks fundamentals.

Become a Full Financial Service Provider

In combining the PB designation, the PTP designation, and your mastery of QuickBooks software, you will earn a remarkable income all year long. It is easy to cross-sell from one service to another, making it easier to find clients, since you often will service the same client for multiple tasks.
