An accountant who is more than a report keeper

不要只作總結成績的會計師

Carrying around a blackberry and two cell phones, Benedict Leung is probably one of the busiest chartered accountants in town. He will reply emails late at night, or answer phone calls early in the morning when having breakfast with kids. But it is not his accounting business keeping him busy.

Leung & Company is Ben’s principle business. This chartered accountant firm and its six employees are always highly occupied. However, their boss is often absent from his office desk. Instead, he is always spotted at all kinds of community activities like business association, charity, student organization and more to promote his business.

How is he able to run his business while engaging himself in the community? He would only give one answer: delegation and high level of energy. He sets up a system to let his staff execute his business decisions and he takes full responsibilities of their works. By entrusting the staff to do the job, the staff will, in return, do the job in due diligence. This system has successfully freed him up to meet clients, prospects and different stakeholders of the community.

Ben is not an ordinary accountant

“Being a traditional accountant means you’re helping your clients to summarize a report card,” says Ben Leung. “A better accountant will then help the clients to analyze their results. For me, a revolutionary accountant, I will give my clients the future pictures of what they should do based on what they have done.” More often than few, his advises are well received and helpful to his clients’ business successes.

By doing so, he has to go beyond his own accounting profession and keeps alert to the changing world and gaining different knowledge, and then applies his knowledge to different clients accordingly.

Ben is also an opportunist

“I started my accountant firm in 1992 during the economy downturn in Ontario,” recalls Ben Leung. “The rent of my current office would be very high if the economy was good and I would not think about it. But during that time, I was offered a 5.5-year lease in which I didn’t need to pay rent for 4.5 years, so I took the lease. “

He started his business and he engaged professionals who were willing to work for a lower than market payment, just for the sake of having an opportunity to learn. The sales of the first year was only $20,000. However, sales doubled up every year in the next 5 years, and finally it maintains a steady growth for the next 10 years.

“The Chinese word of crisis is a combination of danger and opportunity, I can take advantage of the opportunity in 1992, those who want to start their businesses should take advantage of the current opportunity,” Ben Leung suggested. But he also warns those prospective entrepreneurs: do not start a business if the first and foremost reason is not profit-making.

特許會計師梁萬邦隨時都在接電話或回覆電郵,但他郤不是為自己的生意忙碌,而是為著不同的社區機構服務。然而他自己開辦的梁氏會計師行亦一樣業務繁忙,梁萬邦之所以能分身有術,全因他懂得培訓出一群辦事精明的下屬,可以信賴他們照顧他的生意,讓他能參與社區上不同的事務,從商會、慈善機構以至學生組織也有。

會計業務可以很平凡,但梁萬邦不想做平凡的會計師。他強調,一般會計師是為客人總結過去一年業績,然後作出分析。但作為一位具革新意念的會計師,他會根據客人的業績,為他們描繪未來業務發展的前景。他的建議,結果大都能令客人的業務更進一步。要做到這點,最重要是不要將自己局限於會計行業裡,要不斷學習不同領域的知識,加以靈活運用。

這位不平凡的會計師,也是機會主義者,充份實現轉危為機的概念。當1992年安省經濟最困難的時期,梁萬邦決定創業。原本租金昂貴的寫字樓,讓他得到一紙四年半不用付租的租約,加上一些專業人士願意不計報酬加入公司,結果令他的會計師行,從第一年只得二萬元收入起,以每年收入倍增的成績建立起來。他深信在今天的經濟悶局裡,能夠有勇氣像他當年運用機會創業者,也一樣可以成功的。但他亦忠告一句:不是以賺取利潤為首要創業原因的人,最好不要創業。
