THINKING OF CHANGING ACCOUNTANTS?

You’re not alone! And it’s much easier than you think to make the switch.

Whether your accountant isn’t responding, has made mistakes - like not filing your tax return correctly - or you’ve simply outgrown them, there are many reasons why it could be time to change accounting firms.

“I sacked my accountants recently as they just did the basic stuff and seemed to make no effort to understand my vision and the bigger picture so as to save me from paying more tax than is legally necessary.”
“I fired my accountants because they were not creative enough, in a legal sense.”

“I realised my old accountants weren’t ideal to help me any more as they only seemed to want to do the basic minimum.”
“I changed my accountants when I set up a new company for a new business activity to run alongside my old ones. I realised my old accountants weren’t ideal to help me any more as they only seemed to want to do the basic minimum. I’m not sure they had many company clients.”
Do any of these reasons strike a chord?

Please provide Acconomy Limited with all the information that they may request or require in this regard. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your help over the last X years. 

Yours sincerely ______________ Director, X Ltd”
