Common Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Atlanta CPA Firm

Common Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Atlanta CPA Firm

Do I Actually Need a CPA?

With so many business accounting services being offered online, you may wonder whether you need to choose a CPA in your area.

The short answer is: if you want a CPA to handle your accounting and not just a general bookkeeper or accountant—and you probably do—you want to choose a local CPA.

Why? Because your small business likely requires the advanced knowledge and experience of a CPA.

CPAs must undergo additional educational and work requirements, beyond those of a regular accountant, and they must pass a special CPA exam.

The CPA title means your accountant has more advanced accounting expertise and is allowed to perform duties a regular accountant is not.

The certified public accountant (CPA) designation, which is a license to provide accounting services to the public, is awarded separately by each state.

In order to provide professional CPA services in Georgia, the CPA must be actively licensed by the state.

What are the Benefits of Having a Local CPA?

A CPA who works with small businesses and startups like yours in the Atlanta area will be more knowledgeable about the financial challenges and the intricacies of local laws your company will face.

Our expert local CPA services mean you won’t have to go far to get one-on-one financial accounting and advisory services.

We are always ready to answer your questions, meet with you in person, or come in and help your team handle any accounting challenges your company may encounter.

Our local presence means we can assess your accounting practices and software in person, recommend new technology and procedures where needed, and train your team in how to implement them.

It also means we can handle historical bookkeeping and clean up your books, no matter what methods you may have used for bookkeeping and expenses.

Our team can work directly with your HR department to help them manage payroll and benefits, and we can help them anticipate future hiring costs as part of your company’s financial planning and budgeting.

Having Rialto nearby as your local Atlanta CPA means you can get the hands-on assistance you need, right when your small business needs it.

You simply can’t get that kind of support unless your CPA firm is located near your business. 

What’s the Best Way to Find a CPA Firm Near Me?

Referrals from other small business owners in your area or local industry are a great way to find a professional CPA near you.

Performing a Google search for “CPA near me” will bring up local CPAs who serve your area, and you can narrow your search using keywords, read reviews and check credentials online, as well.

Their search tool lets your search for CPAs in your geographic region and find professional accountants who meet your business and financial needs. 

Is Hiring a CPA Near Me a Cost-Effective Choice?

Although you will find many firms offering online accounting services, these services are often limited to basic bookkeeping and don’t provide the in-depth analysis and attention to process and detail most small business owners need.

A local CPA will be familiar with Atlanta-area market conditions, local competitors, state and local sales tax statutes and procedures, as well as insurance requirements and other financial factors affecting your small business.

That local expertise combined with capable budgeting, forecasting, and financial statement preparation and analysis can save your business far more in the long run than you would save by hiring an online accountant.

Your business won’t outgrow the accounting services provided by a local CPA firm like Rialto, and you won’t have to worry about the costly accounting mistakes that come with an impersonal, non-local service.
