he began with an introduction explaining how he started his business and shepherded its growth by concentrating on developing his services and delivering them quickly and on time to his clients. the business grew rapidly, and little time was spent on the recordkeeping except for getting invoices to the clients or making payroll, while keeping the back office as lean as he could. at the same time there were legal, regulatory, hr, occupancy and tax issues from operating in multiple states and countries and he was spending quite a lot of time and fees on these activities, because he had to, while pushing aside and neglecting the accounting work.

back office support for the accounting firm defines you and your firm. are you servicing clients who are part of the past, or are you servicing clients living into the future? remember the new generation of business owners has never owned a filing cabinet, fax machine, landline, printer and turntables (only if they are into retro music!).

while many are ever-present either physically or virtually by phone, texts and emails, they are not managing but rather working in their business on what needs to be done at that moment or that day. they are responding to normal business routines; customer, supplier and personnel requests or problems; and myriad other situations that demand their time, such as banking relationships, cash flow planning, hr issues including hiring, discharging and compliance, interactions with outside professionals, including their attorneys and accountants, and regulatory and occupancy issues. some have partner issues and if they are managing a not-for-profit organization, then board and possibly funding and development issues. they are functioning as a necessary and essential employee and are not really running the business or organization – as if they were not there or were in another part of the country.
