“My passion is accounting” -Andreia Dias

“My passion is accounting”
Andreia Dias, Accountant of the Groupe Advensys Luxembourg S.A.



Hello, how are you ? Could you present yourself?

Hello, I’m fine and you? I am Andreia Dias, I am Portuguese, I live in Wasserbillig and I am an accountant in Groupe Advensys Luxembourg. I love doing fitness, traveling and spending time with my family.


Why did you choose to become an accountant?

I always liked numbers, and when I did my internship in accounting I found out that I loved accounting. During my internship, I found out that it was the profession I wanted for myself.


When and how did you start working at Groupe Advensys? Do you remember your first day? How did you feel? And what has changed for now?

I did my final year internship in Groupe Advensys, after they gave me the opportunity to work with them. I started in February 2017. I remember my first day as if it was today. I felt shy, hesitant and afraid. Today I feel confident and grateful for everything I learned in Groupe Advensys.


Are you happy with your job? What do you value at work?

Yes, I feel comfortable in what I do, my coworkers are very nice, which makes me so happy with my work. I think the most important thing at work is the atmosphere, to have a good atmosphere and to have a boss who shows that he is happy with your work.


What is the most outstanding work (operation at work) that you have done? Why?

The most remarkable work that I have done was when we had to take over the accounting from another company and we found errors, afterwards we managed to modify the client’s balance sheet and he paid less taxes. I feel great satisfaction to help clients to save their money through our service.


How can you describe your clients? Use 3 words.

In general, our clients are very pleasant, very understanding and organised.


As an accountant, what’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned over time?

The big lesson that I’ve learned over the time is that we always need to be informed about every change of the law in order to give the best advice to our clients.


You are Portuguese, how do you find Luxembourg? Luxembourg tax system ?

In my opinion, Luxembourg is the perfect country for work, there are so many opportunities to grow professionally but unfortunately I think that people are always stressed and they do not have enough fun. Luxembourg’s tax system is a little complicated because they have laws for every detail and we need time to learn everything, every small detail.





Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Good luck in your career.

5 Tips for choosing the perfect accounting firm for you

Choosing the right accountant is one of the most important decisions a small/medium business can make. A good one can save you time and help your business grow; a bad one could cost you much needed money and other problems. Yet with thousands to choose from, it can be a daunting call to make. So, when it comes to selecting and working with an accountant, what are the tips every business owner should follow so as to make the most informed choice?



1. Choose a professional


Obviously, you need to check the qualifications, you have to make sure that they are certified, it’s clear that you need a professional to do your finances. It could be good if they are members of some accounting organizations, associations. That they are active and have good professional reputation.



2. Trustworthy


You have to make sure if you trust them. Try to study some of the cases that they had, maybe even with the similar client’s type like you are (from the same business field). Observe how they communicate with you: are they confident or not, if their answers are based on law, practical cases or just personal thoughts, guesses, or no clear answers at all.
You should be comfortable with them. You need to be aware that it is a stranger that will have all your personal information and be responsible for your funds. Be curious in getting information about your future accounting firm, check their network profiles (Facebook, LinkedIn etc.)



3. Check for testimonials


Make sure that they have the experience and ability to break down complex information and explain it in a way you understand by seeing what other people say about them. Go to their website or social media, there surely will be feedback from clients, hopefully it will be positive. You can also ask them to provide you with the real contacts of existing clients (links for them) to contact them and ask their feedback, opinion. Be critical if you see only perfect feedback that is published once and at the same time.



4. Dedicated


Check if they are serious about their clients and doing their job. A good accounting firm will ask you about all the details and everything they need in order to do the best job that they can. For example, will they contact you immediately if there is a problem or will they just ignore it because they don’t want to be bothered with it. If there is something that isn’t making sense to them in the balance sheet, they should call you so that they can solve the problem the right way. In case of any control (tax control), they have to immediately help you with the assistance.



5. Get someone who’s proactive about saving you money


Some accountants will do little more than manage your accounts and complete your tax return forms, but the best accountants are more proactive. So before choosing an accountant, ask what they could suggest, to save your business money.
For example, what proportion of your operating costs do they think you can offset against tax? If you're a sole trader or consultant, can you offset a percentage of your phone bill, car costs, maybe even rent or mortgage payments? What are the implications of doing so? The accountant should warn you of any pitfalls. For example, using your home as business premises could result in a tax charge levied on the house when you sell it!
Always bear in mind that in most countries there is a big difference between tax avoidance (usually legal) and tax evasion (usually illegal). You need an accountant who knows the details of tax law so well that they'll save you money in legal ways, but not one who takes things too far and risks causing your business to operate illegally.
Be very careful about this, because ultimately, it's you, the business owner, who'll pay the penalty if the law is broken.






Good accountants will help your company grow.
If all of this sounds more like a marriage than a business relationship, there's a good reason for that! Your accountant will become intimately involved with the operation of your company so it’s not a decision to be taken lightly. You will need one you can trust, who has the necessary experience and who will be there when you need them.
Good accountants help companies grow, by managing complex financial work and offering advice on practical business issues. This will be guaranteed to save you money in the short and long term. The best ones will be your partner in all but name – and as long as you choose wisely, you can’t go wrong.
