Why being a chartered accountant sucks

Posted: May 6, 2008 in Business Advice

Accountants charge by the hour for their services.

IF they do their job properly – they should get more efficient – and charge me less.

Dumb. I’d happily give a % of my companies revenue to one who truely added value.

Most accountants dont take risks like that
