I know of many small businesses that don't have an Accountant secured before or when they started running their company. They use QuickBooks, and work with someone when filing their taxes.
When do you need to have an Accountant? And is this typically a large expense?
How do you know what is a fair price and what services should be received from the Accountant as a minimum or general rule? I don't have money coming in from my business at this time, which begs the question of when is it "necessary" to be working with an Accountant.
