A formula for success
“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure… You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”
-Thomas Watson, Chairman & CEO of IBM…

Why Use Long + Cowan Chartered Accountants?
Well for one thing we are extremely experienced! The older, the better. Seriously! You want an accountant who has seen thousands of business cases. You want someone who has helped multiple businesses navigate very difficult (and often very messy) financial issues and maybe an audit or twenty!!!
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
– Robert F. Kennedy
Like any professional, a Chartered Accountant is useful due to the level of expertise they provide. Whilst it is not uncommon for self-employed individuals to complete their own accounts and submit their own tax return, it is unusual for them to claim all the possible expenses and/or pay the minimal amount of tax due to Inland Revenue.
A Chartered Accountant looks at business as a circle where sales, marketing, finance, and HR are all tied together. We pull data on the operations of all of the various areas of the business together to provide meaningful financial insight and business advice. This requires experience….
