Accountant's Minute 161
Welcome to Accountants Minute.
There are two major issues for accountants to consider relative to “future proofing” and SME debtors’ management:
The problems to be solved include:
The consequences of this are that the liquidator might then decide that some of the progress payments made to your client have been made in such a way that the liquidator deems that these payments were “preferential payments” and that the liquidator then issues a demand for the repayment of the “alleged preferential payments”.
Whilst your client might be able to get some re-dress from the courts, this is costly and might not be successful.
If your client had registered on the Personal Property Securities Register, in all probability they will have avoided this problem!
What do you need to do to perform your duties as the “Trusted Advisor” to your small/medium enterprise clients who, in most cases, will not be employing people with sufficient knowledge and training for this very important process?
The process commences with submitting a proposal and quotation to your client.
Advising your clients on improvements in debtors’ management is a proactive service that will assist your clients to operate their businesses and will contribute to “future proofing” your accountancy business because, in most cases, this will be a new source of fees. Indicative fees for these services, if you are utilising ESS BIZTOOLS’ products, are:
|Debtors’ Management Review||-||$900 to $1,800 (plus GST)|
|Debtors’ Systems Manual||-||$300 to $500 (plus GST)|
|Personal Property Securities Register Due Diligence Review||-||$900 to $1,800 (plus GST)|
SMEs need assistance from their “trusted advisor” to solve these problems. This is “future proofing” in operation.
