I’m looking for an accountant. What makes a good one?

Firstly, if you’re looking for an accountant, it’s really important to consider your individual or business needs, your goals and objectives and what you want to achieve. When you’re clear on what you want, you’ll be in a great position to start looking for the right accountant to meet your needs. After all, the only way an advisor can help you achieve your goals is by knowing what they are from the outset!

When it comes to finding a good accountant, one size doesn’t fit all. What’s right for one, may not be a good fit for someone else. But, there are a few essential traits that we feel make a great accountant.

From technical skills, to personal qualities and professional ethics, it takes a combination of attributes to make a good accountant. Attention to detail is critical, as are strong communication skills and of course professional integrity. You need to be able to have full trust in your accountant.
