When you think about the different professions that are available in the world today you probably have some sort of an idea about what you think it might be like to have that job. You are not alone. If you bring up lawyers in a group someone is bound to crack a joke about lawyers. Many people have misconceptions about accountants as well. Today Mecham Dicus & Company we are going to bust some of the incorrect ideas that you have in your head about accountants.
One of the most widely believed myths about accountants is that they are all geeks. They envision their accountants with geeky glasses and a pocket protector that have a stutter or poor conversational skills. When you come to Mecham Dicus & Company you will find that we will bust that myth for you. Interacting well with our clients is an important part of our job. You can count on our outstanding social skills whenever you work with us.
Do All Accountants Prepare & File Taxes?
Next up is the belief that every accountant will know how to file your taxes for you. This thought is what causes so many people to ask their accountant friends questions about their taxes when they see them. The truth is that some accountants specialize in taxes but others do not. Many accounting majors prefer auditing instead of taxes. Here at Mecham Dicus Company LLC we take pride in being knowledgeable in all areas of accounting so that we can help you with any needs that you may have.
Importance of Mathematics in Accounting
Third on our list is the assumption that all accountants excel in math. This is an interesting statement to dissect. If your accountant cannot perform basic math functions they will not be someone that you want to trust with your finances. But that does not mean that all accountants are mathematicians. Geometry and calculus are not used regularly when dealing with your finances or taxes. Accountants need to be good at knowing the tax laws and regulations that you need to succeed personally and in your business. So, your accountant clearly should know basic math facts but being able to analyze the numbers is more important to their actual job function.
Does an Accountant Cost a Lot?
Many people believe that hiring an accountant will cost them a large amount of money. This may be true of some accounting firms, but it is not true of all of them. You will want to shop around before hiring an accounting firm. Mecham Dicus & Company offers accounting services at an affordable price. You can rest assured that you will not be overcharged when you choose us as your accounting firm.
