A question we hear often when meeting with small businesses who want to establish a relationship with us is this: ‘How do we switch accountants? Where do we begin?’  and ‘It’s too difficult, I don’t have the time right now’.

We also hear of many reasons from prospective clients on why they may be considering switching accountants. It may be because they are not receiving the service they would like or they are not getting the returns they would like in their small business.  Switching accountants may seem like a daunting process especially if you have been with your accountant for some time or if you have only ever had a relationship with your existing accountant. The good news is that the process is very straightforward and actually requires very little work by you. Here’s how…

3 simple steps for switching accountants

1. Informing your existing accountant

The main action on your part is to inform your existing accountant formally via letter or email that you plan to switch accountants. You can also at this point consider any outstanding work to be completed. You can also discuss a handover date if there is outstanding work to be done, but also know that as your new accountant, Southside Accounting can will also discuss the logistics of the switch to ensure a smooth transition.

2. Registering with us as your new accountant

We will send you our standard terms of engagement and quote for services, and if you agree and sign the engagement documents, we will then carry out anti-money laundering checks as per Anti-Money Laundering Regulations. This may sound time consuming, but usually only requires photo ID and proof of address from you, and a soft copy via email is fine versus original copies.

You are now our client and we will take over the communication with your old accountant and go through the clearance process, as outlined below.

3. Clearance process

We will write to your new accountant formally, known as the clearance letter. The letter will outline that you have engaged us as your new accountant, and we will ask if they think there are any reasons as to why they we not accept you as a client.

We will also ask for copies of previous accounts, tax records, tax returns and any other information we need to make the transition as smooth as possible.

And that’s it!
