Excellent experience with Goforma

Excellent experience with Goforma. Jordan has been very professional and very patient with me. He has great knowledge and always ready to help. It can be quite stressful at the beginning when starting a new company, but they definitely helped me to make it easy. I’m very glad that I found them, it is great to work with them. I cannot recommend them enough. They are the best!

My experience with GoForma has been fab!

My experience with GoForma has been really great. I did a lot of research before committing to an accountant and wanted someone that specialises in IT contracting that offers mailing & address services. Prompt replies on any questions I have and timely filing of VAT etc. Highly recommend!

Switching Accountants Made Easy with GoForma

Switching accountants can feel like a daunting task, but with GoForma, it’s a breeze. We understand that finding the right accountant for your business is crucial for success. That’s why we offer a seamless transition process and exceptional service to ensure your financial needs are met with precision and expertise.

Switching Accountants Made Easy

Reasons to Change Accountant

  1. Unmet Expectations: If the level of service provided by your accountant falls short of what you expect, it might be time for a change. Your financial matters deserve attention and expertise that align with your standards and needs.
  2. Lack of Business Growth Support: Is your current accountant not actively contributing to the growth of your business? A new accountant can offer fresh insights and strategies to help your business thrive and reach its full potential.
  3. Received Poor Advice: Have you received advice from your accountant that didn't pan out well? Trusting your financial advisor is crucial, and if you've been let down, it's a sign that a new perspective might be beneficial.
  4. Missing Statutory Deadlines: If your current accountant frequently misses statutory deadlines, it can lead to penalties and compliance issues for your business. Switching to an accountant with a track record of meeting deadlines ensures your financial affairs remain in good standing with regulatory authorities.
  5. Outdated Technology: While most contractor accountants breeze through their work with tools like FreeAgent or Xero, is your accountant keeping up? Or are you stuck with an old-fashioned in-house portal or even just using spreadsheets? Upgrading to modern accounting software can simplify your finances and make your life easier.
  6. Outgrown Services: As your business grows, your accounting needs evolve. If you've outgrown the capabilities of your current accountant, it's time to find a partner who can keep up with your expanding requirements.
  7. Misunderstanding of Your Business: If your accountant doesn't grasp the nuances of your business, it can lead to misunderstandings and inefficiencies. Switching to an accountant who understands your industry and business model can streamline your financial management.
  8. Cost Concerns: Are you finding accounting services to be too expensive for the value provided? Explore options for more cost-effective solutions without compromising on the quality of service you receive.
  9. Service Levels Falling Short: When your accountant's service levels consistently fail to meet your expectations, it's a clear indicator that a change is needed. Your financial affairs deserve the attention and dedication of a provider who delivers on promises.
  10. Personality Clashes: Difficulties in communication or clashes in personality can hinder effective collaboration with your accountant. Finding a professional whose approach aligns with yours can lead to a more harmonious and productive working relationship.

Some of the most common worries we hear at GoForma

Switching accountants can be a big decision, and it's natural to have concerns about making the change. Here are some common worries we often hear:

"I’m still waiting for last year’s accounts!"

You shouldn't have to wait around for important financial information due to missed deadlines by the current accountant. By switching accountants, your new accountant can push to get things done faster, so your business doesn't suffer.

"Can I change accountants before year end?"

It's usually best to switch accountants before the end of the year, so any advice they give can be put into action in time. Most accountants are obligated to provide handover information to the new accountant within a couple of weeks during a changeover. But don't worry – your new accountant will take care of this process.

"I’m worried HMRC will start a tax inspection if I change accountants."

HMRC considers many factors when deciding to inspect a business for tax, but changing accountants isn't usually one of them. You can rest assured that making a switch shouldn't trigger a tax inspection.

How to Change Your Accounting Service

Switching to GoForma is simple. Just get in touch with our friendly team, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll handle the transfer of your financial records securely and efficiently, ensuring a seamless transition with minimal hassle on your end.

When Should I Change Accountants?

If you're considering a change, pay attention to these warning signs from your current accountant:

  1. No se of cloud accounting: In today's digital world, cloud accounting is essential. If your accountant is still using old-fashioned methods like spreadsheets and paper instead of digital solutions like Freeagent, or Quickbooks, you're missing out on opportunities to save time and money.
  2. You're always taking the initiative: When there are changes to tax laws or updates, you're left waiting to hear from your accountant. They don't keep you informed or updated on how these changes may affect you or your business.
  3. Lack of support for growth: As your business grows and evolves, your current accountant might not be equipped to provide the support you need. They may struggle to keep up with the demands of your expanding business.

If you’re feeling dissatisfied with your current accountant or experiencing any issues with their services, it’s time to make a change. Don’t settle for ordinary accounting—switch to GoForma and experience the difference firsthand.
