Old School Accountants…
1. They are focused on obtaining a tax result
When you take the pile of your invoices and tickets to you old school accountant you join the queue of those who turned them in before you.
Your accountant needs to go through a lot of work before they can have a look to your invoices. Then they have very short time to tell you how much your tax bill is and, frequently, you get this result the last minute.
2. They do more form filling than advising.
Old school accountants don’t give much time to look into your books to spot mistakes or bad habits.
They don't have a real time picture of your business because they get all your information at one point right before the tax deadline.
3. They do not provide software.
In addition to your accountant’s fee, you also have to pay monthly subscription fees to whatever invoicing software that you may need to use
