Switching accountants

If you are happy with your current accountant - brilliant. It's really important to choose the right accountant for you and your business.  Here's some great tips to help you decide or review your current provider.  


However, if you are considering switching accountants, you might think the process will take several months, costing you a lot of time and money and inconvenience. Switching is actually really simple.  Your new accountant should take care of this for you directly, with little or no input needed from you.

Will it cost me to switch?

There should not be any fee to pay to switch. 

If I have paid my accountant in full, should I wait until they have completed the work before switching?

You can change accountants at any time.  If you've paid in full you can ask for a statement and your previous accountant can provide you with a refund of the difference to cover the work they have completed.
