This is a question I am sure most business operators and investors question when looking for a new Accountant, and no doubt find the process overwhelming and challenging.
I would like to give you my top three tips for evaluation when looking for your new Accountant.
#1 What are their professional qualifications?
There are several professional associations that Accountants belong to including Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, Certified Public Accountants, and the Institute of Public Accountants. You will find that Accountants associated with these bodies have undergone professional studies and training to become qualified.
#2 Do they have a good reputation?
An Accountants rating or reviews on social media can provide you with insightful information on how they are likely to meet your needs, It is recommended that you read at least 6 to 10 reviews to gain a good understanding about how others have rated the Accountant and their services.
#3 What are their service offerings?
It is important that you check that the service offerings they provide meets all your needs. You can learn more about their services through their website and talking to the Accountant.
Professional fees and costs are likely to be at the top of your list as a key selection criteria to your decision, I would recommend leaving this as your last evaluation test before making your decision. Although professional services can be costly, in our modern world of work, most Accountants package and tailor their services and costs to suit you and your budget.
