Do you have one? If not, you should do it. Now.
This is a case of do what I say not what I do….but it’s something I am working on right now. I’m doing my research to find the perfect accountant for me. I’m blessed with a contact to do my taxes for me….but need to find someone to do the other part! Someone to help me make sure that the monthly funds are properly taken care of.
I have a list of names to contact…but…..I’m scared.
What do I ask? How do I not sound like an idiot? How do I make sure that I’m doing everything correctly? What about finding someone I mesh with? Not only that….how do I make sure that they are accredited and know what they are talking about?
It’s so silly. I’m aware how silly it is. But I’m working to fix it.
I’ve made a list. Wanna see?
1) Are they familiar with photography business rules?
2) What type of accountant are they? CPA, Enrolled Agent, etc?
3) How do they charge?
4) Will they meet for an interview?
5) Would a bookkeeper work better for me? And if so, what tasks would I have them do?
There are so many things to think about and I know I’m not the best one to take care of all of them myself.
What do you do? How do you handle your money? Do you let your child help count the coins or do you have someone else help?
Let me know what you do in the comments! I’d love to hear.
