Paying taxes is inevitable, but there are plenty of ways in which a good tax advisor can ensure you pay as little in taxes as is possible, while keeping within the letter of the law. Finding a good tax advisor can make a huge difference to you and your business, but how do you know which tax advisor is going to be the one that will save you a fortune rather than one that will simple be another expense for you? Here are some guidelines to follow when choosing a tax advisor…

Take your time and do your research

A good tax advisor could be with you for decades, so don’t rush into a decision. Don’t pick the first company out of the phone book, or the company with the largest advertisement. When you search online for a tax advisor, you’ll find plenty of choices and it may seem rather overwhelming, but not all tax advisors are the same, so it’s important to make your selection carefully.

Choose a well established business

Firstly look into each company. How long have they been in business? A company that has been trading for many years has likely only stayed in business over that time due to offering a good service to its clients. A business that has only just recently started trading can’t offer you this level of reassurance. In addition, by choosing a tax advisor that has been long established will help you to avoid scams. You can double check the longevity of any business with the company registration service within the relevant company, and determine exactly when it was established. Don’t simply believe everything you read online, double check the facts to be perfectly sure you’re dealing with a reputable and legitimate company.

Investigate the company’s reputation

 You should also spend some time researching the reputation of the company you’re considering. Look at review sites and read through the comments, good and bad, to get a balanced view of the business. Word of mouth recommendations are always good, so ask around relatives, friends and colleagues to see if they use a tax advisor that they’re happy with.

Look closer at the tax advisor’s credentials

Once you’ve found a company that’s been around for a while and has a good reputation, you could delve a little deeper and look into the details of the tax advisors themselves. Most company websites will have a ‘meet the team’ style page where you can read a little more about the people you may be dealing with. How much experience do they have? How highly qualified are they?
