Changing your accountant

Changing accountants is not really any different from changing your home fuel supplier, your petrol station or even your favourite pub or restaurant - and the reasons may be similar!

We write a 'clearance letter' [email], which enables the outgoing accountant to raise any outstanding issues that may cause them to hold on to information pending resolution.

The letter makes the assumption there are no such issues and so goes on to request whatever is appropriate.

In order to authorise the outgoing accountant to respond to the clearance letter, the usual procedure is that you email them and copy us in.

In the vast majority of cases this is a quick, non-contentious procedure. After all, it is in their interests to expend as little time as possible on a matter that will generate no further income. These days it may be done completely by email with documents attached, which is the quickest and cheapest way.

Then it's up to us to provide the services you require to a high standard at an acceptable price so that you feel relaxed and confident; and will therefore stay with us for years to come.
