What Now?


April 15th, the date which keeps tax accountants awake at night, has come and gone. But with that sigh of relief, an unfamiliar sense of dread can come; the question, “what do I do now?” may come to mind. Well, the answer is plenty.


Advising


Accountants do quite a bit more than taxes. Like here at BIG, accountants can help companies and individuals determine and reach their financial goals. Corporations need their financial data analyzed so they can make savvy business decisions, and individuals need help either bolstering their retirement accounts or growing other areas.


Extension


Did you really think tax season was over? People love to procrastinate, and are willing to file an extension if it means they can continue to delay work. While obviously the amount of extension work is substantially less than the normal filing period, it is still work that needs to be done by someone.


Workshops And Seminars


A lot of accountants are introverted and try to steer clear of the limelight, but this is an excellent way to create additional revenue. People like Tony Robbins have achieved great success because the general public is hungry to learn more about finances, especially from people with credentials like CPAs. With that said, tutoring people on a software program like Excel is something even the most shy of accountants is capable of.
The end of tax season definitely calls for celebration. But don’t rest on your laurels for too long! There’s a lot of people out there who need financial help, and accountants are some of the most qualified experts to dispense advice.
