How to Find a Specialty Accountant

Although all accountants share similar titles, not all accountants are created equal. In fact, accountants often specialize in certain types of businesses in order to differentiate themselves from other accountants in the accounting profession. For example, there are accountants who specialize in start-up accounting; there are others who specialize in personal accounting, some in legal accounting and so much more. Because of this, it is important that you know how to find a specialty accountant in your area.

The Library

Although it has been suggested that people aren’t reading as much as they used to read, the library is still a great resource for information. Practically every library across the country has a resource center for small businesses and it is there where you can find references for businesses and even fliers for businesses seeking clients. This is a great place to look when trying to find a specialty accountant.

Professional Associations

Are you a lawyer? Journalist? Plumber? Whatever your specialty, check your local professional association. Your professional association usually has accountants and other business professionals within their network who are in place just to help businesses within your niche. If your own association can’t help, consider reaching out to the local accountant association to see if they can connect you with accountants within your niche.

Local Colleges 

Local colleges are also a great place to find accountants of a certain niche. They can connect you directly to alumni as well as business students who are in search of experimental clients for their businesses.
