With so many accountants and accountancy firms out there to choose from, how can you tell whether or not a particular accountant is right for your business? Finding the right accountant is about more than choosing someone you can work with on a personal level, you need to be able to trust that your accountant is proactive and reliable, and therefore, going to be an asset for your business.

Here are four important criteria that will tell you if you’ve found the right accountant for your business.
