Which one will you get?

So, you need an accountant, we’ve discussed what to look for when choosing one, but what are you going to get when you take the plunge and appoint one? I’ve identified below some of the main types with their key characteristics.

Postman Pat – nice and steady, usually does what he says he will and normally on time.

Father Christmas – you only get to see him once a year, and that’s if you’re lucky.

The Scarlet Pimpernel – you can never find him or get in touch with him. He never replies to e-mails or returns phone calls.

Superman – always comes to the rescue and constantly over delivers. One to look out for.

Dick Turpin – commits highway robbery by charging fees for every minute he possibly can. E-mails, phone calls, letters, chats over a coffee, you name it, he charges for it.

Lord Lucan – likeable character who disappeared in suspicious circumstances, but is rumoured to pop up every now and then, doesn’t help when he needs to get your tax return submitted.

Mr Bean – well, enough said…

Good luck!
