As a business owner, you want to know that you can pick up the phone at any time and get advice from the person you've developed a relationship with. Few things axe more frus- trating that constantly being ro- tated through a team of people and having to re-explain your questions and concerns. Do you offer the services that I need? Make sure the ac- countant offers all of the ser- vices you need. There's no sense in hiring someone who can only do a portion of the tasks. 4. How will you be billed? Before moving fOrward with your accountant of choice, make sure you understand how the accountant bills for services. Billing structure can vary pretty widely. Some accountants charge by the hour, others have flat rates per service, and oth- ers use some combination of the two. Don't forget to ask about charges that could occur that haven't been discussed yet. That might seem like an odd question, but you could be sur- prised by the answers you get. Better to be surprised now, be- fore you've made any commit- ments, than to be surprised by your extra-large bill.
