Here’s what your business should do if you have an incompetent accountant: Fire them! But first:
Identify the Issue
First, make sure you’re certain about the accountant’s incompetence. Incompetence can be defined as lacking the skill, knowledge, judgment, or ability to do the job. Sometimes, performance issues can arise due to lack of support, resources, or training. Therefore, you must accurately identify the problem and ensure it’s not something that can be resolved through other means.
Keep a record of the accountant’s errors or inadequacies. This includes anything from failing to meet deadlines to making mistakes in the books, or not being able to explain accounting concepts clearly. This documentation will be crucial if you have to terminate the employment contract.
Have a direct and honest conversation with the accountant, if you can get ahold of them, about the issues you’ve observed. It’s possible they’re not aware of their errors, or they’re facing issues that are hindering their performance. This meeting should be conducted professionally and without personal attacks. It’s not about blaming, but about solving a problem that impacts the company. With more than 15 years of experience, I help you know exactly where your business stands.
Seek Legal Advice
If the situation doesn’t improve, you may need to consider termination. Before taking this step, consult with an HR professional or legal advisor to ensure you’re handling the process correctly and to avoid any potential legal backlash.
Hire a New Outsourced Accountant
If termination is the final decision, it’s crucial to replace the incompetent accountant with a capable one. Ensure the hiring process involves stringent checks on skills, experience, and references. Hiring an experienced and competent Outsourced Accountant will ensure that your business’s financial management is in good hands.
