    You could try joining resources like Upwork, or use your professional network to get referrals. If you are looking for more long term work though, it would be helpful to have a contract accountant license. That means being qualified in public accountancy and meeting several other requirements set by state accountancy boards. Generally that entails completing an undergraduate degree with at least 150 hours of public accounting course work plus 900 hours of business plus 6 courses related specifically to the profession of accountancy, including law and ethics. One must also take the CPA examination before applying for an individual state license.

    Becoming a freelance accountant is possible if you are qualified to complete high-level audits or taxes for self-employed people. The absolute best way to get into payroll is to work for an outsourcing company. The best place to look for these companies is through job search websites, posting boards, and registries on the Internet. A major benefit of this type of employment is that virtually no time can be wasted searching for employment due to the short term nature of contracts. It should be noted that it may take several months before earning enough experience in your chosen field before being able to find work without any help from employment provide.

    Step 1. You need to have a degree in accounting or be studying toward your degree. Step 2. Add up all of your required hours for the CPA exam if you are interested in becoming certified as an accountant after passing that test. Step 3. Invest enough time into networking on LinkedIn and use any other social media platforms that would interest an accountant, such as Pinterest or Facebook, where you can share new ideas/business opportunities with friends who are also accountants, potential clients, etcetera. Step 4.

    Becoming a freelance accountant is not too difficult with the internet. The first step for becoming a freelance accountant is to establish your credibility by creating an impactful profile that highlights the range of skills that you have in accounting. You can then set up your account on sites like Elance or GoFreelance to find accounting jobs in need of freelancers. The important thing when registering on any site, even if it's just to post what you're looking for, is to get verified. This will help get higher visibility and trust from potential clients who might be browsing through listings and looking for someone they can trust with their finances.

    Help yourself out by first educating yourself on the profession. Look for suitable entry-level education courses in finances, accounting, and business management. These are most often offered at community colleges and vocational schools. The courses will help you understand what it takes to work as an accountant by equipping you with technical skills that most employers look for when hiring workers with this level of expertise. After schooling is complete, it may be time to take the next step- job hunting! Follow your passion for this type of work and find a company who shares your excitement too!
