CHAPTER ONE

1.0 Introduction
1.1 Background Of The Study
Chartered Accountants are independent practitioners whose work on a fee is based on business management or for an individual wishing to use these services as a member for accounting firm; Chartered Accountants are also external auditors.
These are the services rendered by Chartered Accountants, they include:
  1. The service pertaining to taxes
  2. Services that are primarily accounting work
  3. Those services that are substantially of auditing nature.

Very often, the accountants are consulted in respect to income tax implementation.
Okufi in his contribution said that where the auditor is also a tax consultant of his client, the task will be more cost effective and efficient. Hence, he will be able to make comprehensive report to avoid as much tax as possible ad avoid unnecessary duplication. Okafor (1999:27) sees the designing of accounting system or client as one of the frequency ignored aspects of chartered accountants in Nigeria.
The chartered accountants helps in the planning stage of a company by preparing feasibility studies, writing the expected financial flow making realistic projection and determining the cost draft the article of associating or memorandum of association and formulate internal policy of any firm.
A chartered accountant can also act as an insolvency practitioner by examining the company, to ascertain whether immediate liquidation is needed to whether the company still stands a chance to succeed chartered accountants act as a receiver by taking possession of the assets charged to debenture holders and realizing them, and withdraws from the company. He also acts as a liquidator by selling and collecting (in case of debts), the assets of the company and pays the proceeds to the entitled.

1.2 Statement Of The Problem
Chartered Accountants play important role in the formation acquisition and do not believe that these roles add value to business firms, Peter Lougard stated that most proprietors of small scale business look upon the statutory auditor as impossible and do not feel that there is any value to the business form.
These make it imperative on the accountants to emphasis the non-audit roles. In order to retain the prestige, improve their income, ensure the satisfaction of their client and enhance national economic development. Thus most people, including potential investors and entrepreneurs do not understand the experts services the professional accounting firms can provide then the above problem, that is the lack of understanding of the accountants, other capabilities has called for some questions answers to which will give and insight into the non auditing roles of accounting firms, especially at the formation and infancy stages of business, the questions are:
  1. What are the usual problems proprietors encounter prior to at the formation and at the initial stage of their business?
