A certified public accountant’s job is to handle a wide range of monetary responsibilities for businesses and individuals. But how do you know when it’s time for you to hire one? Here are five times when the team at Martinson & Carter thinks you should seriously consider hiring a CPA.

  1. You’re starting a business for the first time – There’s a lot to consider when you’re starting your first business. A Rock Hill CPA will make sure you’re starting off on the right financial footing by helping with tax forms, business plans, and other matters. Taking care of these items upfront can help you avoid headaches down the road.
  2. You need help with budgeting – No one likes to budget. If this is a pain point for you in either your personal or professional life, consider working with an accounting firm. You’ll get advice on managing debt, controlling expenses, and other helpful subjects.
  3. You’re trying to finish your business taxes – Business taxes can be complicated. Instead of dealing with the complexities on your own, we recommend talking to a CPA. We’ll help you with everything that’s connected to your income tax returns.
  4. You’ve received an inheritance – If you’ve received an inheritance, a CPA can help you work through the process. Working with an accountant may help you better manage inheritance taxes so you can lower your future tax liabilities.
  5. You want to donate money from your business – If your company wants to donate money to a particular cause, consider seeking financial guidance from an accounting firm. We’ll help you maximize your donation while avoiding potential penalties.
