How do I leave my existing accountant to join you?

Contact us to discuss your needs and decide if we can be of assistance.

If you are happy to move to us you formally engage us, accepting our terms of engagement (which we will provide to you).

We typically recommend that you then contact your existing accountant to explain that you are leaving and that Business Wise will be in contact shortly to request some information in the normal manner.

As a member of CPA, this includes the provision of an ‘Ethical Letter’, and a request for transfer of the appropriate documentation and financial statements.

We will then notify the relevant organisations (which may include the ATO and ASIC) of the change, and liaise closely with you through the transition period.
