Let’s design your perfect program.  Just tell us what you want to accomplish and then we’ll help you SEIZE The Moment!

Traditional accounting firms offer what most business owners would expect.  Whether you consider yourself a bookkeeper (full-charge bookkeeper), an accountant, a tax preparer (perhaps offering tax planning and filing services) a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) offering write-up and audit, or an Enrolled Agent offering tax representation services, the business owner sees it more simply:

  • Will you record all the business transactions?
  • Will you provide me monthly financials (they might not know what they are really asking for but let’s keep this easy – an income statement (Profit & Loss Statement), balance sheet and cash flow statement?
  • Will you file my taxes?

Let’s be honest: for many, this is where most firms stop.  Most accounting firms merely do what the business owner expects.  But is that really what the owner of the company needs to run their businesses effectively?  Is there more that we can to do help the business owner have the information they need to make more informed business decisions?  Of course!

 RIGHT NOW, the accounting profession is experiencing a major change in the role we fill in the business world.  In the same way computers have revolutionized the way transactions are recorded, current accounting software and related artificial intelligence (AI) are having the same effect.

What are you doing to stay engaged with your clients and remain relevant daily?  Knowing that accounting is the language of business, we need to more clearly understand what our clients need from us, even if they are not aware that they NEED it.

Until recently, this was the accounting model:

  • Bookkeeping
    • Manage the chart of accounts
    • Manually record the transactions – DATA
    • Prepare the financials (income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement)
  • Accounting
    • Review the financial statements – INFORMATION
      • Identify trends
      • Prepare budgets and forecasts
    • Interpret the financials for the business owner to help them know what it all means – KNOWLEDGE
      •   Act as the translator between the business and the owner for the accounting information (remember: accounting is the language of business)
  • Tax
    • Tax planning strategies
    • Tax preparation services
  • CPA / EA
    • Financials audits and reviews
    • Tax representation before the IRS

What is it now, and how has it changed? (notice the difference):

  • Bookkeeping
    • Manage the chart of accounts
    • Set-up and manage the software used to record the transactions – DATA
      • Know the various accounting software bells and whistles the clients should be using (plug-ins etc.)
      • Less and less management of manual recording of transactions
    • Print the financials (income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement)
  • Accounting
    • Giving the client access to real-time data
      • Dash-boarding
      • Smartphone interface tools to access data
    • Review the financial statements – INFORMATION
      • Identify trends
      • Prepare budgets and forecasts
    • Interpret the financials for the business owner to help them know what it all means – KNOWLEDGE
      •   Act as the translator between the business and owner for the accounting information (remember: accounting is the language of business)
  • Tax
    • Tax planning strategies
      • Personal and business
    • Tax preparation services
  • CPA / EA
    • Financials audits and reviews
    • Tax representation before the IRS

With that in mind, let us help you HAVE the premier accounting firm!  There is a turnkey process to starting and building a successful accounting business, we refer to it as MAPPING the business.

To start we need to just ask which area of the business presents the biggest opportunity or challenge that when addressed will take the business to the next level.  For example, do you need more clients, do you need to offer more or better services to earn the revenue you need or are you too busy that you need to streamline your workflow to become more profitable?

Each is a unique situation with it’s own focus.

Often, those with fewer than 5 clients (and zero counts) focus on the marketing and sales to get the clients they need.  Regardless how good you are at accounting, bookkeeping, tax – unless you have paying clients it doesn’t matter.

Not knowing where and how to find new clients can be frustrating.  But there are tried and proven strategies to find and retain the right clients.

Offering quality accounting services is key to getting the right clients.  In fact, your confidence and competence to do the work is essential to your marketing.  Knowing what you do and how it benefits the client is important so that you can clearly explain why they should pay you for your services.

Lastly, its one thing to provide the client quality financial reports but taking too long affects your earnings.  Rather than question your ability to do the work correctly we ask if you are doing the work efficiently.  Your ability to do the work quickly and routinely (standard operating procedures) determines how profitable you are.

The goal is to help you be in business for yourself but not by yourself, to help you get paid what you are worth.

The GOAL here at Universal Accounting Center is to get you the training, skills and certifications to do the work your clients need efficiently so you can be the premier accounting firm in your area.

There is no reason to risk the success of your business and put things to chance.  Let us help you become successful in weeks rather than in months.

Consider becoming a Profit & Growth Expert (PGE) for your clients.  See what you can do to receive the coaching and support you need to be mentored by those already doing what you want to do.

Since 1979 Universal Accounting Center has helped accounting professionals successfully move forward and achieve things they hoped and dreamed of accomplishing.  We’d love to work with you next to turn your dreams into reality.

Now is the time to start and build your own successful accounting business!
