When choosing the best online accountant, you should look at the experience of the accounting firm. You will need to look to see if they are registered agents with HMRC. This is important as an experienced firm will have controls and procedures set by the accounting bodies. Furthermore, it’s important to know whether they specialise in your field. You may be self-employed or a limited company. This ensures that you are gaining the maximum benefit of that service by an expert. Experienced will have CPD, which ensures they are up to date with the latest budgets and tax changes.
This is an important factor, as you will provide them with sensitive information such as your passport and bank details. You should enquire to see if they are registered with the information commissioner’s office. This will confirm if they have controls in place to comply with the standards. It is important that you are comfortable and can trust your accountant.
