The Good, The Bad and the Greedy - Or how to make your accountant work for his moneyAn award winning accountant who has advised celebrities shares insider knowledge about the way accountants work – and what it means for you. This book is on the one hand a guide to squeezing every last drop of wisdom and expert advice out of your accountant and on the other a daring exposé of the closed professional world which has served none better than the practitioners themselves. Tips for saving on fees and minimising your tax bill without paying eye-watering sums will warm the hearts of all of you who have paid dearly for the most basic advice over the years.Written in an easy to read style, it explains for sole traders and company owners just how to get their advisers working to minimise tax bills and give the best advice they can, rather than what they know they can get away with. The author weaves his own many years of experience along with some quirky anecdotes into the chapters, combining a thoroughly practical approach to finance with a sharp insight that will force you to rethink your views on what you are paying for – and why.

    If you are running a small business you need to read this book. If you're the FD of a FTSE 100 company then you'll be horrified at the stunts that your big name auditor will pull to make money out of you.As an ex qualified accountant I though I instinctively knew how to deal with my company's accountants, so having been recommended this book I thought I'd read it on the off-chance that I'd pick something new up. In fact I learnt a lot more than I thought I would, and will put that into practice next time I interact with my company's accountants.Thank you Mr Rowland!

This is not a dry numbers list, this is a things to look for and questions to ask number and will easily save absolutely anyone the cost of purchase - worth a read even if you are happy with your present situation as it should make make you think, question and bring you up to date.

    This is a really interesting read, and so helpful towards my course! I would definitely recommend this to students studying accountancy or to anyone with an interest in accounting and finance. It's really well written and with a touch of humour which makes it thoroughly enjoyable read!

    A most excellent read, the best value for money I've ever come across in the accountancy business.

    This book was written by my accountant and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who uses one.

    I like the idea of this author and the generosity he has shown to share his knowledge and experience, but I am more interested in a book where he explains the accounting job to someone who is newly qualified. That would interest me and many others in similar situation.

    Most importantly, for a potentially dry and dull subject, this book is very entertainingly written with plenty of humour, anecdotes and observations on current affairs.Choosing a trustworthy, reliable, timely and even pro-active accountant for your business is tricky. Costs and cost quotes can vary dramatically. Accountants usually want to charge by the hour and so obtaining a "total cost of job" quote is particularly difficult. This book guides you through how to obtain the best service from your accountant at the lowest cost. How you can become your accountant's "favoured client" whereby you will receive that best service and low cost.Choosing the wrong accountant can lead you to years of grief as well as being financially seriously worse off. This book will allow you to avoid such a situation while also being an entertaining read.
