Identify company needs. Do you need a bookkeeper to balance the checkbook or someone to prepare financial statements and/or tax documents?
Determine the type of accountant needed, based on your needs. Many accountants can provide all the services you require or are part of an accounting company that can cover your needs.
Ask others, especially those in your same line of business, for recommendations.
Look in the yellow pages or contact other companies for referrals.
Contact the local Chamber of Commerce or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for referrals.
Look beyond fees, when evaluating accountants, and ensure you feel comfortable with your perspective accountant and his or her ability to quickly respond to and understand the changing needs of your business.
