Take control of your finances in 2020
We all know that financial worries can be a huge strain – in fact, money is consistently ranked as one of the top causes of stress in the UK. So if you find yourself lying awake thinking about money worries, you’re certainly not alone. But what can you do about it? How can you take control of your finances (whether business or personal) and create a better financial future?
Now is the perfect time to take action
Of course, now is always the perfect time to tackle something that’s worrying you! But there’s something particularly satisfying about taking that first step in January – just as you’re looking at a fresh, new calendar on the wall and thinking about all the things you want to achieve this year, personally or in your business.
Perhaps financial worries are stopping you from striving for the things you really want? If that’s the case, being in charge of your money will give you a strong foundation from which to work towards your goals. Plus, from a practical point of view, you’ll be much better equipped to cope with those unforeseen expenses that may crop up in 2020. (Because, let’s be honest, many of us don’t have the financial safety net to cope with unexpected expenses.)
So what’s the first step?
Consider reaching out to an accountant for help. You might think accountants are just there to handle bookkeeping and tax returns, but a good accountant will do so much more. A good accountant will work with you to understand your goals, help get your finances in shape (including things like cash flow planning), and prepare for a better, less stressful financial future. Importantly, a good accountant is there to advise, not to judge. That means they’ll never make you feel stupid, or criticise your financial decisions.
