Choosing an accountant requires information, and a clear understanding of what you and your business need to move forward. Some people may avoid going to an accountant because they fear it will cost too much, and others may be hesitant to inquire about fees.
There is nothing mysterious or secretive about an accountant's fee. It is your money and you have the right to be informed about how you will be charged, what you will be charged, and when you have to pay. Do not delay getting accounting advice if you need it, Robert could be working with you to optimize your tax position and save you money today.
Robert Graham sees corporate accounting differently.
“Our role is not just to complete your tax filings, our role is to support your business activities, to be your Chief Financial Officer. Our role is to be there as needed and when needed. We are a critical part of your company.”
