Questions to Ask An Accountant

January 9th, 2012 → 8:19 am @

If you are considering hiring a CPA for business consultation or tax prep this year, interview a potential accountant and ask these questions:

  • Tell me about your business clients? Any authors or publishers?
  • Could you share two or three names as referrals?
  • How much do you charge?
  • How often am I billed?
  • What is included in your services?
  • What is not included?
  • How often will we meet? Where?
  • What do I need to bring to our meetings?
  • Why is bookkeeping important?
  • Explain the reports that I will receive from you.
