How to Thank Your Accountant or Bookkeeper

Thank You to your accountant or bookkeeperAccountants and bookkeepers both help manage finances but perform different functions. Read how they are different here and here.

Sending your accountant or bookkeeper a gift or thank-you note will let them know how much you appreciate them!

Also, if they are working at a place with other accountants and bookkeepers, your gift has the potential to make them stand out to the boss. The boss may think they really helped out the customer and the customer appreciated it enough to send a gift. What a great compliment!

What can you do thank your accountant or bookkeeper?

  • Order pizza for them on or near tax day, which is usually April 15 in the United States. This is their busy season where they are often working long hours.
  • Send brownies, cookies or a fruit basket. You may choose to bless the entire accounting department with a┬álarge basket that it can be shared.
  • Accountants are often called “bean counters”. If you know your accountant likes jelly beans, sending them some is a cute way of saying thanks as well.
  • A gift card to their favorite coffee place.
  • A handwritten thank you note can be included with the gifts mentioned or sent instead of a gift. They may appreciate your words more than a physical gift!
