Are you available year round?
Some accounting firms shut their doors after April 15 and only reopen for the following tax season. But when you’re running a small business, you’re going to need help all year, says Melissa Labant, director of taxation at the American Institute of CPAs in New York. “If something comes up, you do not want to wait until tax season in order to get your issue addressed.” Mark Bryant, CPA is a full time and full service CPA firm based in Atlanta, Georgia but has clients in many states around the country. “Client’s businesses may physically move or expand, but the CPA relationship stays right here in Atlanta”, says Mark Bryant, CPA. The key reason we believe you need a full time Atlanta based CPA firm is that tax time and the IRS is only part of the reason you need a CPA. The other is that current and accurate financial information can really be important in making day to day business decisions and long term tax planning.
