Would hiring a virtual accountant work well for a small business?
Would a small business get the most without ever meeting their accountant? Does a face-to-face interaction bring the best outcome instead in areas such as cash flow, business advice, managing risks, etc.

The short answer is yes, you can still get the most out of your accountant without actually meeting them. With the advent of online accounting packages like Xero or MYOB, etc, and online meeting applications like Zoom and Go To Meeting, you don't actually need to meet physically face to face. I can look at your figures and tell you how you're tracking, and answer your questions and/or walk you through a solution.
I hope that helps.
