5 Qualities Your Next Accountant Should Have | 35244 CPA

The easiest way to gauge how well your business is doing is to hire a professional accountant. However, not all accountants are the same, and you should know what you’re looking for before you trust your business to anyone. As you research your options, make sure your next accountant has these five qualities.

Informed

It may seem like a no brainer, but your accountant should be an expert in bookkeeping and accounting specific to your industry. Make sure they know the best options for your unique business and stay on top of related financial details and information. 

Organized

If you’ve tried to do your accounting yourself, you know just how quickly it can turn messy. Hire an accountant that knows how to clean up the mess and keep it that way. Not only will this allow you to reach your goals faster, but it will also help ensure your business is both efficient and compliant. 

Credible

Trust is one of the most important factors when deciding on an accountant. You are often putting your business, your finances,and your life in their hands. In this case, reputation means everything. Find out everything you can about the company and accountant before signing anything. Consider contacting professional references for testimonies.

Responsible

The devil is in the details, and one mistake could cost your business dearly. Discuss the ways that your accountant would avoid mistakes and stay familiar with your finances. You spend a lot of time familiarizing yourself with your clients, and an accountant needs to do the same with your business.
