Firstly, articulate what you want from the accounting firm in question. This is important to figure out before going ahead with any service. The company will most likely come in with their own ideas based on their own capabilities and strengths so be sure to outline what YOU require. This will assist you to make an informed decision and not leave you with unrealistic expectations.
