What should you expect from your accountant?

Your accountant should provide general accounting services and monthly reports with recommendations.  Your accountant should look at all aspects of your financials.  For example, if payroll is your largest expense, who is monitoring all functions of payroll.  Is there a schedule or can employees clock in and out as their leisure?  Are employees riding the clock to kill time?  Is there a clear job description for each employee?  Is the owner hands-on or do employees manage themselves?  Your accountant should be able to recognize certain behaviors by the cost of payroll.  Controlling costs is a must for any Accountant and critical to the small business owner.

How much should you pay for services?

Accounting services are based on fixed or hourly rates? Fixed rates range from $500 – $4,000/mo. Hourly rates range from $25 – $200/hour. It’s important to make sure your needs are meet regardless of the rate.  Are you paying $800 – $1,000/mo and you really do not understand your financials?  If you get reports without an explanation or recommendation monthly- get a new accountant.
