Tips for Family Businesses from Small Business Accountant Melbourne Part 2

Last week we brought you some tips on family business management that could help your small business go a long way and avoid some grave mistakes that some family business tend to make. While business is important, family ties are important and below are some more tips on family business management from the provider of small business accounting services in Melbourne.

It is highly recommended that you get an outside business advisor that could observe and provide feedback on your business operations, that is not related to you. While getting an outside pair of eyes is always useful, getting objective feedback is important. Unbiased views will give you a clear picture of how your business look like and if there are faults that you cannot see. We even suggest getting an accredited family business advisor.

Just in any business or family, it is important that communication is clear and that ALL news are reported to your family members involved, regardless whether it is good or bad news. Communication also has to be consistent, as occasional dropouts in communication may invoke a sense of distrust. Furthermore, why not hold regular communication sessions or family 'retreats' where you can just openly talk about your family business with your own family members!

Those are the tips on family business management that we could give you. For any help with small business accounting in Melbourne, call m.a.s accountants now. We are the accountants for small business in Melbourne.
