Every business is unique, and your business has its own unique needs as far as accounting is concerned. At Ten Key, Inc., we offer customized services to suit our clients’ needs, and that extends to the services we recommend.
In our article about choosing a CPA, we talked about questions to ask a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) before you hire one. However, there’s no need to feel like you’re on your own in making this decision! We encourage you to rely on Ten Key, Inc., to help find the best CPA for your needs. We have a wide network of resources in this field. Therefore, we can direct you to the type of CPA that is right for your business.
CPA firms are as varied and unique as your business is, but they generally fall into 3 categories. We have built relationships with excellent, professional CPAs at every level.
Here are 3 types of CPAs we can refer to you:
- Small firms: The small, one-person CPA firm is often a comfortable fit for small business owners and individuals. You’ll be assured personal attention, and their costs are usually a little gentler on a small business owner’s budget.
- Mid-sized firms: As your business grows, you may outgrow a small CPA firm and require more services. If so, a mid-sized firm with a team of professionals could work for you. The mid-sized firm offers personal attention, but has a team for backup and more variety of services.
- Large firms: Large firms will have a substantial team of accountants, bookkeepers, tax preparers, and more. They’ll also offer a wide array of services to fit your needs. But that doesn’t mean you’ll give up personalized service. This is because large firms usually assign clients to each accountant to ensure everyone gets the service and attention they need and deserve.
CPAs can also be chosen by specialty, as some firms focus on a specific business or industry, making them extremely well-versed in the needs of that business category. In the end, the type of CPA firm you hire depends on you: your business, your business needs, as well as your personality, preferences, and comfort level. We’re happy to help you decide which type of CPA is right for you, and refer you to one we trust.
