There are many accountancy firms, but choosing the right one for your needs takes some research. Determine what your specific needs are before looking at a specific accountant; you may need expertise with taxes, personal finance or your small business needs. Look for an accountant that has the relevant experience as well as one that is certified. Location is important too, and if you’ll be communicating in person several times a week, being able to get to their office easily and quickly is a requirement. Some, but not all accountants will come to your home or workplace. If you aren’t sure where to start, ask your coworkers or family for a recommendation, and of course you can also find reviews and testimonials online. Once you have found the right accountant, meet with them to ask any questions and to be sure they are a good fit.
