Life Stages of a Business

Businesses are not unlike organisms in the sense that businesses go through a number of critical life stages. The first stage – or birth – of every business consists of pinning down the central idea or purpose behind the new company. Every business should be able to answer this question: what is it that we do?

Another parallel businesses share with many organisms is responsiveness to counsel. Like an organism, a business can transition through certain stages of its life more smoothly if it receives assistance from qualified professional. And in many cases, the professional best suited to assist a business is an accountant or CPA. Here are three business stages that your CPA should be able to help you navigate:

The Start-Up Stage

Have you recently launched your business or do you have an idea that you are looking to capitalize upon financially? A CPA can help you in the start-up phase of your business. They can help you as you navigate your accounting process; they can help you determine what types of credits or debts you need to get in order; and most of all they can aid you in your search as you begin to seek out venture funding. Your CPA will be able to answer any questions about your accounting necessities that you still may be unclear on.

The Business Maintenance Stage

Not every business is in the start-up stage or even the growth stage. There are some businesses who are totally content with maintaining what they have. A CPA can also help these types of businesses by helping them with their day to day accounting needs.

The Growth Stage

Is your business experiencing exponential growth and you’re not really sure how to navigate your way through it? A CPA can help you. In fact, a CPA is most often utilized in order to obtain growth, and once the growth comes, a good CPA will make sure you are adequately prepared for it. He or she may do this by helping you get your accounting systems in order or by simply helping you automate your systems.
