I have been using B-ABLE for 7-8 months now on a recommendation and I can see why! Amazing advice and very helpful, friendly but professional. Being a new business owner and relatively clueless the amount of good advice I have received has helped and been invaluable and I am sure my business will use B-ABLE for years to come.

Top 5 tips for choosing an accountant in Edinburgh 

  1.  Ask what financial services & advice they will provide? Consider the size of your company and the potential size it can reach, and then make sure your accountant can provide you with payroll services, completing accountancy basics such as tax returns and self-assessments or general bookkeeping services of your company’s turnover and outgoings. If you are a Ltd company will they deal with HMRC?
  2.  Ensure any accountants you consider are members of a recognised UK accountancy body like the CPAA (Certified Public Accountants Association)
  3.  Speak to accountants or bookkeepers before you register your business, they should advise you on which trading type is most suitable for you based on your expected earnings and will register the company for you and contact all the relevant bodies like the HMRC.
  4.  Decide if an accountant’s geographical location will matter to you or not? You should find out how often you will need to visit your chosen firm, can you deal with them over the phone as a virtual service for say an online e-commerce business or would it be ideal if they are local accountants near you so you can drive to meet them when required or they can visit your premises.
  5. This one is really simple yet often overlooked; ask other small business owners you know if they recommend their own accountants? Most of our work comes from word of mouth and any accountants that offer a strong service should be confident on people checking their track record with existing customers.
