If you own a company or oversee the finance department in St Louis accounting firms can be your best friends. There are plenty of accountants to choose from, but how do you find the one that is just right for you and will get the job done?
One of the best ways to find a good accountant in the St Louis area is to get a referral from a co-worker, or perhaps your attorney or banker. Many accountants rely on word of mouth and recommendations from existing clients, especially those who work with smaller companies and accounts. The American Institute of Certified Accountants and other organizations can also recommend an accountancy firm.
Once you have several accountants in mind, you should set up informal meetings with each of them. This will give you an opportunity to find out about fees and services provided. Just as importantly, you will be able to get an idea of the accountant’s personality and how they work. Being able to deliver results on time, work to a deadline and communicate efficiently and on time are important considerations.
