1. Lack of communication
If your accountant is difficult to reach, takes a long time to respond to your emails or phone calls, or fails to keep you updated on your financial situation, it may be time to look for a new accountant.
2. Poor organisation skills
If your accountant seems disorganised, loses your documents or files (believe us we have seen this happen with other firms), or fails to meet deadlines, it could be a sign that they are not capable of handling your financial affairs effectively.
3. Lack of expertise or knowledge
If your accountant lacks the expertise or experience necessary to handle your specific financial needs, it may be time to find someone with more knowledge and experience in your industry or financial situation.
4. Incomplete work
If you notice mistakes or discrepancies in your financial statements, tax returns, or other documents, it could be a sign that your accountant is not paying enough attention to detail or is not performing their duties to the best of their ability.
5. Lack of trust
If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in your accountant’s abilities or ethics or they seem unapproachable, it may be time to find someone you can trust to handle your finances.
Lastly. Of course, if your accountant is still using piles and piles of paper to get your work completed, then it is also time to find a new accountant!
Ultimately, if you feel that your accountant is not meeting your expectations or providing the level of service you need, it may be time to start looking for a new accountant who can better meet your needs.
