Having the right accountant can make the difference between life and death for your business. The Inc.com blog offers up some advice this month on how to choose the right CPA.
If you’re looking for a new CPA, take a look. They cover the issue of choosing whether to have an in-house accountant or outside consultant. They look at how to evaluate a potential accountant in four areas: certifications, industry expertise, size, and complexity. There is also advice about the interview, as well as performing reference checks.
