In truth, the fact you are asking that question is the indicator that it’s time. I always tell people that if they are wondering whether to change their accountant, the right time was probably five years ago.
The reason is probably best summed up by a quote I have up in my office: “People do business with people because they choose to, not because they have to. We can always find others doing the same thing or selling the same product; it’s the personal connection that makes the difference.”
There are lots of people out there who know how to crunch numbers, but you want to connect with your accountant in a relationship of trust. It’s possible to have an accountant you would never even consider leaving. Why settle for anything less?
