We’re always surprised at how many people don’t realise that anyone can call themselves an accountant.

“Taking a chance with your finances is simply too risky”

Here’s what to do to protect yourself.

HMRC have published a list of the professional bodies they recognise.

Pick an accountant that belongs to one of these.

Read the ICAEW Guide

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales have published an 8 page guide “Don’t Take A Chance With Your Finances” which sets out why choosing a Chartered Accountant is so important.

Jonathan Ford & Co are Liverpool Chartered Accountants.  You can check our listing with the ICAEW by clicking the link.
