What to know BEFORE appointing an accountant

AAT Logo

When running your own business, one of the things you need to do is appoint an accountant. Accountants provide small businesses with a range of services including bookkeeping, preparing financial statements, calculating tax and advice on minimising tax and other costs.

But how do you find the right one? Did you know that around one-third of all accountants in the UK are not members of a professional body? In fact, anyone can call themselves an accountant without holding any qualifications. 

In collaboration with AAT, the professional body for accounting technicians, we are providing members with a guide to appointing an accountant. The guide includes what you should know about accountants, how to look after your interests and tips for finding the right accountant to appoint.
