5 Things to ask when hiring an Accountant

CALLING ALL BUSINESS OWNERS - please read


Looking for an Accounting professional? Or are you preparing to chat with your new accountant for the first time? Here are 5 questions you really should ask:


“What are your fees?” It may be awkward, but if a particular accountant doesn’t fit your budget, it’s not going to work for your biz.

“What services do you offer?” Some accountants offer a wide variety while others specialise in certain areas. Work out what you need.

“What experience do you have?” Find out if they’ve got the know-how needed to work with your business AND look for someone who understands the market your business operates within. If you’re not looking for someone to audit you, don’t be afraid to look at someone who isn’t ‘chartered’ but has a lot of experience and happy clients.

“How often will you meet with me?” Be wary of those who only want to meet one time in the year; if you’ve got a tax issue, meeting once a year would highlight the issue way too late. Don’t be afraid of meeting more often, quarterly or even monthly to make sure all is good with your biz. And figure out just how you’ll meet (video calls, online, face-to-face)

“How will you help my business?” You need someone to take your business to the next level.



When it comes to hiring someone to help with your accounts, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Find the person who is the right fit for your business and don’t assume you’d need to approach a large, well-known firm; sometimes the small companies have hidden gems!
