Good Steward, provides professional, high quality services with concern for the needs of the client.May 7, 2018Verified
I was looking for an accountant who understands that I want to know every detail of my business. David, of Good Stewart Accounting, explained exactly what he would do, which was give me the details and he didn’t know that’s what I was looking for. That was something I continually asked my prior accountant to do, but they continually only gave me the bottom line figures.Nov 10, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I base everything off of an hourly rate and try to convert this to a fixed fee when possible to help reduce the clients risk of a large unexpected bill. Tax preparation starts at $175 for a simple return and that includes federal and state returns. Local is included in most situations as well. Monthly bookkeeping I typically charge a monthly rate to allow the client to not have to worry about how often and long we talk. I am more concerned with my clients success than making a few extra dollars.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have a phone call, in person meeting, or video conference to discuss the clients needs and let them know what they can expect from me while we work together as well as what I will need from them to complete the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a bachelors in business from Penn State, a bachelors in accounting from Pitt, and an MBA from Carnegie Mellon. Also, I worked for PriceWaterhouseCoopers in both tax and auditing, Consol Energy in accounting, and I have my CPA license in the state of Pennsylvania.
