Right now, many businesses are facing some very hard choices. There are lots of things an owner has no control over. One thing we can control is our attitude and how we decide to respond. Rather than retrench through the crisis, we can choose to look for the opportunities.
This is an opportunity for you to:
1. Take a leadership role in helping your team at their time of greatest need
2. Be pro-active in communicating with clients
3. Make a plan for a more sustainable and resilient business
For Ingham Mora, our opportunity was acquiring J B Lloyd Chartered Accountants on Mick Lloyd’s retirement. During the chaos of the lockdown, on April 1st, we merged our practices and rather than freeze hiring we took the opportunity to take on four great staff.
A smooth merge was supported by the investment we had already made in cloud technology, which paid dividends and allowed us to swiftly migrate the new practice into the cloud so all clients had access to ongoing support.
In this stressful time, we know that having great support from your accountant will be a difference maker for many businesses.
When business resumes with some ‘normalcy’ we are excited to be able to operate from two locations.
In addition to our current office in downtown Tauranga, we will also be in a new office at 7 Totara Street in Mount Maunganui. We are looking forwards to being back at the Mount and providing more options for our clients.
