Choosing the best accountants?
With all the accountants claiming to be the best in the industry, it can be challenging to choose the right accountant for your small business. One of the most crucial things you need to consider is the accounting firm you settle for is specialised in small businesses. You want a company that understands how you operate as it is likely to serve you better.
Another important thing you have to consider is certification. Your accounting firm should have certified public accountants who can offer useful advice to your small business.
Using references, or the word-of-mouth method is yet another way of finding the best accountants for your business. Talk to business associates or friends to ask them if they can recommend you to any top accountants in your region.
Reading reviews on Google is also an oft-used method of finding good accountants. Reviews are usually from the accountants’ clients, and they can give you valuable information about the accountant that you are looking to hire.
Can you trust your accountant?
Do you like your business accountant? Or better still, do you trust your accountant? Your accountant plays a crucial role in guiding the financial well-being of your company. There, you must be able to trust your accountant and know that they will be there for you when you need them most.
Trust is even more important when it comes to meeting deadlines. As you know, business deadlines are critical. If the accountant needs to finish a project or prepare a report by a certain date, it has to be done. To know whether or not you can trust your accountant, talk to the accountant’s other clients to get an insight into their turn-around time or timeliness.
Has your Accountant got the relevant experience?
Your accountant will have unfettered access to the financial records of your company. This is why you need to be sure that they are experienced and qualified enough to be trusted with this task. Apart from their experience, find out the qualification and skills they have. It’s advantageous if they have previous experience or knowledge of your business field. Do they have any connections that could help your business? Does your accountant have contact with legal advisors and solicitors, local banks and manage suppliers and clients that may be of benefit to your business? Experience is significant, and it’s going to help your business a great deal.
Can you do your own limited company accounts?
The straight answer to this is yes. In fact, as a limited company owner, there is no law that demands that you hire an accountant. However, doing your own books has two critical disadvantages.
The first one is that bookkeeping can be a significant distraction to the main purpose of your business. You are likely to take time away from critical business dealings that could be improving and enhancing your bottom line.
The second drawback is that, even if you do possess bookkeeping and accounting skills, you can mess up your books. This will mean either of two things: you hire a professional accountant to fix it, or you pay a costly price regarding taxes.
