What to Expect When you call-up a Business Like us!

When you call-up a small business like us to inquire about services please keep in mind that we are probably as small as you are.

Most small businesses do not have offices, they work out of the owner’s home.

So if you do that, then expect that the person you are calling just may do that too.

Also when you call us for services we will need to see somethings that you feel are confidential…

For example, you call us to ask us to help you to get your “books in order and to pay your taxes…” please don’t be shocked when we tell you that in order to do that we have to see your books… We cannot pay taxes when we don’t know what we are paying for…

Sure some places are very forward and may have software that will allow them to remote into your system, however you should be prepared to meet with the person that you are hiring to take care of your financials…

Really I don’t want to work for someone I have never met anymore than you should want someone who you have never met working for you.

Be prepared as well to have to wait for a meeting… Just like you are a business and have other jobs than the one you are talking to me about… So might I. Just because you may want to meet in five minutes because you are on your third “pay your taxes” notice from the Ministry of Finance, doesn’t mean I am going to be able to accommodate that schedule.

Also, if you are going to use some obscure software for your finances, because it is cheap please remember that someone is going to have to learn to work with it in order to do your books and that is going to be at your expense…

Anyway… These are just somethings that have come up in phone calls lately and I felt the need to share them.

I will try my best to help you… But I am also in business… to make money. I cannot help you by lowering my costs because you are small… My costs are set based on the level of service you are getting.

So… Now that I have pretty much un-professionally had a rant here… Please tell me what you think!

Have a great day and see you next week!
