Our first accountant made a major mistake which took 3 years to sort out.
I spent a lot of time trying to understand by he was so stubborn BUT even more
time trying to resolve the problem.
I have no quibble in relation to his fees but the situation he placed us in almost
drove me crazy. French co....by the way.
Second accountant was British and worked for a small French company.
All seemed ok until he moved on to a larger French Co in another area.
We moved with him as requested but I feel very disappointed with the way in
which the company operates.
Even though there is no language barrier there seems very little clarity in how
the final bill is composed. Also they require a signed document each year re payment
and 50% of the proposed and estimated total to be paid in January.....several months
ahead of any attention to our account.
Our situation is far from complex.
In fact it is very few elements of involvement....
We are off to see another accountant today who came to see us at out house
before Christmas and she feels that in view of everything the end of year tax
return should take only one hour to produce.
