Accountants help to examine the financial statements of businesses to ensure their accuracy. Mid-size and large businesses like cannabis, real estate, restaurants, and contractors need accountants to verify if their statements and records comply with the legal rules and regulations.

Anyone struggling with computing taxes owed or preparing tax returns must hire a professional accountant. Often, small businesses do not have the human resources to inspect account books and systems, that is where an accountant comes in by ensuring that they are up to date.

If you’re looking for accounting and bookkeeping services, here’s a list of the top five things to look for in an accountant. 

1. Education
An accountant’s education speaks a lot about their capabilities apart from defining their qualifications. Get to know how educated your accountant is and if their academic qualifications meet your project’s requirements.

2. Motivation
A self-motivated accountant can help you keep up your spirits in difficult times. They should be able to reflect positive energy and stay motivated to beat any challenges that may come up through their tenure.

3. Friendly
You should be able to share your worries and financial troubles with your accountant, which is only possible if they are friendly with you and allow you the space to get comfortable with them on the work front.

4. Responsible
They should be responsible for their decisions and actions as being an accountant demands making some risky decisions. When one takes a decision, one doesn’t know its outcomes, but taking responsibility for those decisions is essential in a field like this.
