Every local business community is like a village. It really can be a case of everyone knowing everyone.

When you ask business contacts about an accountant that is based somewhere else it’s unlikely they will have heard of them. Therefore, you can’t get real feedback from people you trust.
When you choose a local accountant in Peterborough to look after your business finances, you will build a better relationship. Instead of sending things via the post, you can drop in. If you have a question you can arrange to meet your accountant instead of doing it over the phone or via email. A face to face meeting is always more personal and when other matters or concerns arise these can be discussed too.
When you get to know your accountant, they can then recommend you to their clients. Your local accountant will work with other local businesses, in your area. Perhaps a client will go to your accountant and ask for a recommendation of the service or product you provide. They will quickly think of you and recommend your business. The other company chose a local accountant because they want to support the local business community, so they’ll be happy to meet and potentially work with you going forward.
