Like comfortable shoes, it’s all about the fit.
Selecting an accountant isn’t like buying office supplies or other commodities. Your accounting firm should be an extension of your own organization. As one of our favorite clients once told us, we act as though we’re on their payroll, performing as their CFO.
We enjoy having that degree of involvement in our clients’ businesses. And we’re honored to have many relationships at that level.
If you’re looking for help with your accounting or payroll, there are several simple questions you should ask yourself :
- Are they the right size for my company?
- Are they capable?
- Do they seem interested in my business? In me?
- Do I like them?
- Do I trust that they’ll be there to help if something goes wrong?
Our long-standing clients know we’re not perfect. Mistakes happen. Communication isn’t always as clear as it needs to be. It’s easy to judge a partner when things are going great. But it’s more valuable to judge them on how they perform when things aren’t perfect.
We stand by our work. We stand by our clients. And the longevity of many of our relationships implies that we’re doing a pretty good job of keeping clients satisfied.
