Accounting & Business Advisory
Owning or running a business is a journey with a thousand crossroads and no map.
You weren't born with an instructional manual, yet every crucial decision you take on this roller coaster ride has the power to change the course of your life.
It’s not just the major path you choose in your profession, principles, passions and pastimes.
It’s people, too.
Fortunately, with the right relationships, you don’t have to walk that journey alone. Nor make your most courageous decisions without the strength, foresight and knowledge of a trusted adviser beside you.

Accounting and business advice for your journey.
The fundamental role of an accountant is undoubtedly to make sure the numbers add up.
But beyond the ledger, an insightful accountant can add so much more to a relationship.
Do you make the deal, take the punt, sit and wait, expand or contract, look for a partner or go it alone? It’s still always your call.
But, at least you can make that call based on a reality check from someone who has the confidence, candour and knowledge to provide it without fear or favour.
Our privileged knowledge of your fiscal foundations combined with our integrity and objectivity make us a confidential counsel, business adviser, sounding board and mentor all rolled into one.
What should give you further confidence to trust an accountant from Hood Sweeney is the success we have managed to build over our own business journey.
Our Accounting & Business Advisory team, has the people, the experience and the business nous to give you the counsel you need, whenever you need it.
We can offer you everything from the basics of taxation and accounting, to consulting on key management decisions and generational planning, sharing every step of your journey, in good times and bad.
So, here are the eight questions you need to ask yourself right now
- Is your accountant giving you proactive advice that looks ahead, rather than merely in the rear-view mirror at past results?
- Has your business structure evolved with its growth?
- Have you ironed out all the issues with your cash flow and working capital?
- Are you sure you’re claiming all your eligible business and personal taxation deductions?
- Do you have a really good handle on all the performance metrics and financial indicators for your business?
- Have you formalised a succession plan?
- Would you be confident managing the complexity of buying or selling a business?
Do you have time to spend on your business or are you too busy in the business?
If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, you could have a lot to gain by talking to us.
