We, at Amex Associates, look at it from a different angle. We use the accounting process as a powerfull tool to provide you with absolute control of your business’s costs and revenues. We don’t do historical accounts i-e prepare them on a date which well past the point when you could have actually been able to influence the course of your business by taking timely decisions. Infact, as your accountants, we are always there throughout the year to advise you on the implications of the decisions you might want to take during the course of running your business.
