John was very responsive and available to address my questions and concerns regarding current and future tax return filings. He made several recommendations and was completely transparent and unselfish in finding the most cost-effective option, which in my case, was to go back to my current preparer and ask him to explore the changes. He is conscientious and I highly recommend him for your tax and accounting needs.

Sharon is an amazing person! She is so smart and great to work with! She handles our payroll, banking, bills, inventory, A/R bank deposits, and downloads bank transactions. She is an expert with using QuickBooks. Worked over 10 years part time online and lives out of our state! I'm truly impressed with her abilities. There's nothing she can't handle! I personally would give her a rate of 10 with her accounting skills as well.

Ms. Riccardi is the best! I came to her because I own a small business and have been keeping the books myself since opening about 6 months ago. I wanted to make sure I was on top of everything. I was not. Ms. Riccardi helped me get my books cleaned up and did a superb job with my financial reporting needs and had excellent tax advice for me for 2015. I tend to have high standards when I am paying someone for something I think I can do myself, but Ms. Riccardi met each of my expectations. She is professional, accessible, and knows her field well. I thought I could save money by taking care of my companies accounting and tax needs myself, but after working with Ms. Riccardi, I will be using her services instead.

Bryant has been a godsend, literally. He is currently helping us with all our accounting needs and we hope to have a long lasting relationship with him. We are a startup company and made many, MANY beginner errors! So far Bryant has been patient, supportive and knowledgeable with all our needs. He is wonderfully communicative and resourceful, and I am impressed with his ability to jump in and tackle the mountain of accounting work and myriad problems we presented to him. My only regret is not hiring him months ago. I believe with Bryant's guidance we can get back on track and achieve greater success. If you are looking for help, it's definitely worth your time to talk to him!

We were very happy with the bookkeeping and Quickbooks Online training services provided by San Diego Business Essentials. As a fast growing startup company we required a lot of help with our accounting and we received round the clock support from their bookkeepers. We would highly recommend their bookkeeping and training services.

When I first came to ProBack, I brought an unorganized box of over 10k transactions to sort! Not only did they catch up our books, they have worked with me and my company in every way to make sure my financials are pristine. Book keeping, financial planning and projections and full business support that has been BEYOND invaluable and crucial to the success of my business. Jenn and her team are the best in town.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is an accountant?

    Accountants are financial professionals who have received an accounting degree from a four-year university or college. By trade, accountants prepare, maintain and examine the financial statements of an individual, business or institution. An accountant prepares reports for tax purposes and can also perform audits of public companies. Common tasks include creating budgets, analyzing profits and losses of a company, processing payroll, preparing financial statements for company leadership, and creating and maintaining financial database systems for a company.    

    Accountants do not automatically have a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation unless they have passed the Uniform CPA Examination and received the proper license. Regardless of whether they are CPA certified or not, accountants can assist businesses and individuals with bookkeeping and financial reporting, while CPAs are more knowledgeable in tax codes as a result of the CPA licensing examination and continuing education requirements. CPAs are also eligible to represent clients before the IRS if audit support is required, while a non-CPA accountant is not. Academic background, years in the field and professional reputation all can affect an accountant’s rates.

    How much does it cost to hire an accountant?

    Accountants’ rates vary based on their education, licenses, experience, and the work for which they are being hired. An accountant may charge an hourly rate when a company or individual needs their services on a short-term basis, such as when performing an audit or requesting assistance setting up a financial database or process. Hourly rates can range as widely as $40 per hour to $300 or more per hour, depending on your geographic location and the accountant. Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your region.

    Accountants may offer a package rate for weekly, monthly or annual services to reward ongoing customers. Many accountants offer online services where small businesses can access online accounting software and payroll assistance, and the accountant — for a monthly or other recurring fee — provides financial analysis and reporting of their numbers. For basic monthly accounting services, an accountant might charge anywhere from $75 to $500 or more, depending on what was included in a given package, the size of the client’s business, and the complexity of work requested. Nationally, full-time staff accountants earn between $40,000 and $80,000, depending on experience and other factors.
