Put simply, if you are not overjoyed by the concept of going after your tax return for the following business quarter or even for the whole year - you might just want to find yourself a good accountant the can do that for you. Preferably a certified one, and preferably one that can help you gain the most out of your tax deduction. So, how to find great accountants in Israel?

Taxes are fun (at least for some C.P.A's)

Tax preparation can be time-consuming, even if it can excite the logical, puzzle-liking mind. We are of course kidding since they might be exciting, but we think the right to be excited by tax return preparation is reserved mainly for people who do that for living. A good C.P.A can take the time to go over your billing and income for the last appropriate period and work his way through the tax laws and constructs in order to adequately fill the demands of the Israeli tax law entities. Not only that, a good C.P.A might do so with style and class, meaning he might be able to get tax reductions and return which could help people pay fewer taxes. This might be good news for some people, especially if it comes with the news that they might also gain a retroactive tax return for the last 6 years or so.

In conclusion of what we wrote so far, the benefits of hiring a good C.P.A might be worth the money - since that person can easily do all the math work himself while also might be able to help his clients to legally pay fewer taxes. It might not answer the question, “How to find great accountants in Israel”, yet, we’re getting there.

How do you find a good and even a great accountant in Israel?

For starters, you could check his license. Since Israel does monitor its C.P.A's and have them go through years of training, preparation and tests - you can be quite sure there is an official source you can go to and check somebody's C.P.A's license if they got one. Yet, this is only for the first qualification test. You still need to find a viable candidate you would like to work with.

So how could you go about finding yourself a new, formidable, C.P.A.? In other words, one can ask, “How to find great accountants in Israel?” That is a good question, and like many others, the answer might be as simple as asking your friends and family. Do they work with somebody in particular? Do they have somebody in mind? What is so good and great about him? Is that relevant to your case?

They might like their C.P.A because he is a tiger. A fierce warrior that can get things done. Sounds good. Yet if you prefer to work with the more affable type, it might not be as meaningful to you. This means you might want to check what kind of qualities you appreciate in people, and what you would want to see in your C.P.A.

Is it talent? Expertise? Charisma? Experience? Honesty? Good recommendations? Well, it is up to you and it might just be the mix of all the above. Just compile your list of potential C.P.A's, give them a ring and get your impression. Afterward, schedule a meeting, see and feel for yourself. Repeat until you get it. Good luck.
