Become "More Consultative" Using Comparative Analytics

 Problem #3 = Technology Disrupting Tax & Audit Revenues

Let's face it. The Accounting Industry is transforming before our very eyes. The technology disruption is making itself known through automation (expectation of being able to do more with less), commoditization (downward pressure on audit & tax pricing and resulting revenues), and consolidation (accounting firms merging, looking like consulting or law firms, etc.).

Get Back In Front Of Your Clients

Problem #2 = Transitioning from Compliance to Consulting

Have you ever asked, "How can we get back in front of our clients?" If so, you're not alone. Firms across the country tell us that clients are conditioned to reach out to or respond to their CPAs during compliance seasons, but don't proactively seek advice other times of the year.

Turn Client Data Into Actionable Insights

Problem #1 = Data Rich, Information Poor

One of the most common problems we hear from CPAs is that they have tons of client data but they can't do anything with it. The apps firms use are fantastic at completing Audits or generating Tax returns, but that's where their utility leaves firms hanging.

Benefits of Consulting? Sometimes They Need To Be Spelled Out

Sometimes clients can be leery about adopting new services, even if they've had you as their CPA for years now. As you try to ramp up your consulting game, you should plan to talk with your clients before and after tax season, taking time to touch on the issues they may be having and then emphasizing the different ways you can help. One asset that can be particularly helpful in these discussions is the client data you already collect. By analyzing it, you not only establish a competitive baseline you can use for yearly performance reviews, but with a tool like the one we provide, you get a readymade structure for your consulting conversations, with insights, red flags and recommendations grouped into distinct categories you can then plan to work with your clients on over time.
