I want to register a small work from home business and do yearly audits. I have found a tax consultant and we exchanged more than dozen emails. After I asked him about where he got his certification and did specialization, he told me that he cannot help on such level. I told him that I don't need anything special and he questioned why I would need all these details.
Maybe I am too picky here but I just want to be sure I am in reliable hands. He works in an office with several other accountants.
Should I be suspicious here or not worry too much since I will manage the financials on my own? How should I go about finding a legitimate accountant for my small business? How can I verify the credentials of an accountant?
