Accountant changing is easier than most people realize, and it is a simple 3-step process, simply:

  1. Provide us with your previous accountants details.
  2. We make a formal request for clearance and historic records
  3. Your records are received and our agent details are registered with the relevant authorities.

In a world of constant change being dynamic and responding to demands from your customers is key.  As a business owner, you are constantly looking for ways to improve the goods or services you provide, ways to advertise and improve your supply chain. However, amongst all of this, your accountant has remained firmly wedged in.  This is not necessarily a bad thing as having an accountant that knows and understands your business does reap rewards.

But what if your relationship with your accountant has run its course, what are the signs? do you:

Run through the motions every year?
Feel your accountant is too busy for you?
You do not understand the services & the associated fees?
Feel that your accountant isn’t good value for money?

What do you do?  For many, the barrier to change is a psychological one.  Most people do not want to upset the apple kart and incorrectly feel that making a change may result in more tax or an investigation.  This simply is not the case.

Fundamentally if you are unhappy then you should initiate a change because today’s accountants can offer a multitude of services.

Establishing new relations is a simple case of picking up the phone and calling other accountants, inviting yourself for a meeting and then following your instincts.  You will likely choose the accountant that you get on with and can explain things to you, one that takes time to answer your questions.

If you are in the process of thinking of an accountant changing but do not know where to start then why not try Gower Accountancy, you will receive a free consultation with absolutely no obligation.
