Reduce your workload & start enjoying life more…

End of financial year (EOFY) is one of the busiest times on the accounting calendar. From complex tax returns, meeting strict deadlines to keeping up with demanding schedules, it can take its toll on the mind, body and spirit.

Some important lifestyle changes professional accountants can make to reduce daily stress includes:

  • Managing your workplace expectations & discussing this with management;
  • Reducing workplace hours & arranging more time with family & friends;
  • Taking regular holidays, mini breaks & weekends away to minimise the effects of stress in the workplace;
  • Minimising stressors & irritations that may be causing tiredness at work;
  • Implementing efficient work systems to reduce burnout levels;
  • Outsourcing business tasks such as paperwork, database management, follow up phone calls & regular ‘to do’ lists;
  • Engaging a coach or mentor to help with keeping motivation levels high & productive;
  • Reviewing business goals on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis to ensure KPI’s are being met. If necessary, hiring an external business consultant can reduce your time spent labouring over loads of paperwork.

At Accountancy Locums, we understand professional practice. Whether it’s, building, buying or selling accounting businesses, we can help you achieve your lifestyle goals faster.
