    Default What do you look for when choosing an Accountant?

    Hi all, as busy professionals I am wondering what is important to you when choosing an Accountant. Do you prefer use a specialist contractor accountancy firm or a general accountancy firm?

    Is personal service important to you? Or do you make your choice based on cost?

    Thanks.

    Looking at the username, I'd guess at Cogent Accountants Limited (another one who doesn't publish the VAT number on their website)

    Do they have their company number there? Or their registered office? (I can't check easily myself atm)

    Yes to company number. They have an address, but it doesn't appear to be the registered office.
