How to Choose an Accountant for Your Creative Business

ilise-new-headshot-bug-1-11It’s amazing what you can find when crawling the Web late at night!

I found an awesome blog post by one of the 2012 Creative Freelancer Conference speakers, Shane Pearlman (his topic: Your First Year as a Freelancer).

He generously shared his PPT from that session (which I found while trolling this Master List of presentations for the 2012 HOW Design Live).

Tucked into one of the slides about accounting (I know, boring but really important) was this tiny link at the bottom: Questions to Ask an Accountanthttp://tri.be/how-to-pick-a-good-accountant/.

Here are the first 5:

  1. What licenses do you have?
  2. How long have you been in accounting?
  3. How long have you run your own accounting business?
  4. Who are your other clients?
  5. How do you calculate your fees?

Find the other 45 here….and send a little thank you to Shane via Twitter: @justlikeair
