The right accountant will be like your business partner – wanting you to succeed, helping you save money and to be there to discuss any important business decisions. Not all accountants offer the same services and amount of their time to you. That’s why it’s important to pinpoint exactly what you need from an accountant and not rush into any anything. Make sure you do a thorough background check of any candidates and arm yourself with relevant questions to ask when you meet. In today’s world everyone is online with all businesses having an online presence. A good way to assess an accountant’s suitability would be to see how they project themselves on social media.
Research Accountants on Social Media
The majority of accountant firms should have a presence on Linked In, Twitter and Facebook. If they don’t you should ask yourself why? Linked In is a way for businesses to show what they do and get endorsements for their skills. Check out who else they are connected to and how do they talk about their services in the opening paragraph. Are their qualifications and skills clearly outlined and are these what you are looking for?
Although Facebook is more socially orientated, many businesses are seeing the benefit of having a Facebook presence. Is their Facebook page professionally created with qualifications and skills on display? Do they offer useful tips and information that would benefit you and your business? How large a following do they have and are there recommendations from happy clients?
Get a Face To Face Meeting
After a little research online, a face to face meeting is a must. You need to be in the presence of someone to truly assess their energy and skill for what they do. Have a list of questions to ask and make sure you visit a few before deciding. Ask how they could suggest to save your business money. Do they have the relevant expertise in your field and is their firm a member of relevant professional groups? A great accountant will be happy to answer all questions and want to find ways to help your business thrive.
