Basically, I'm going to see a few prospective accountants (some were recommended, others I found via review.
I'm not sure what to ask, but a few things on my mind:
-What business form (LLC, etc.)
-what don't I know?
-record keeping and deducting expenses
-whether I should even have an accountant at this point - under 15K in gross income (it's a part time business)
-what kind of accountant i should choose, out of the ones I meet with
Any suggestions? I do marketing consulting in my spare time. I also have a couple of joint ventures happening in 2010.
PS. I'm in Los Angeles, so if you have a recommendation, I'd love to hear it.
