5 Signs that it is time to switch Accountants

Updated: Jan 19



Is your accountant better at invoicing you than they are at looking after your accounts? Here are five signs it’s time to think about switching accountant.


How to tell it’s time to switch accountant


1. You’re paying far too much

Sorting your accounts shouldn’t cost a fortune. If you think you might be paying over the odds, it’s time to shop around. Look for an accountant that offers a variety of service packages, ideally at fixed monthly subscription with no extended tie-ins, allowing you to pick the one that’s right for you – otherwise, you’ll be paying for services you don’t need.


2. Your accountant charges you every time you want advice

When you’re running your own business, you need to be sure you’re paying the right amount of tax and claiming everything you’re entitled to. If your accountant is happy to advise on an ad-hoc basis but then delights in sending an invoice for the extra work, a change could be in order.

If you join Angle Accountants, you’ll get unlimited accountancy support relating to your business, so no matter how much help or advice you need you won’t be charged a penny extra.


3. You need to book an appointment to visit your accountant

Taking time out of your day to go and visit your accountant is not only a pain, but it’s also time that could be spent earning money. Being a small accountancy firm we get to know our clients very well and often have communication over telephone, e-mails and text messaging as often as required to get the job done!


4. Your accountant baffles you with endless jargon

There’s no getting away from the fact that the world of accountancy is full of curious and often confusing terminology. But if your accountant uses this to their advantage by rattling off jargon in the hope you’ll go bleary-eyed and simply pay their invoice, you should think about moving your business elsewhere.

We take a jargon-free approach to accounting. Your client manager will always be on hand to explain anything you’re not sure about.


5. Your accountant demands you fill out an antiquated spreadsheet

With the Self Assessment deadline looming, freelancers, contractors, and small business owners up and down the country are wrestling with the spreadsheet provided by their accountant. One false move, and you’ll accidentally delete a formula that affects the whole spreadsheet.

Far better to shift your accounting online. You’ll be able to see your tax liability at the drop of a hat, as well as raise invoices and record expenses anywhere, anytime.
