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.

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!

As an event planner, I'm good at all sorts of things, but bookkeeping is not one of them. I struggled to file receipts, log miles, and track reimbursements. I constantly told myself to set aside a day (or two or five) to get it all together. With a demanding schedule, it was difficult to find the time for it, and let's be honest, I wasn't trying hard to make the time either. I needed help. One wonderful day, I met Jennifer at Black Number Bookkeeping. She is right combination of fun, personable, and professional. Most importantly, she knows what she's doing and loves it! She helped me organize my finances in a way that is both simple and manageable, which saves me a lot of time to do the things I am good at (like throwing awesome parties!). The best part about it is that it's all virtual. Thank you Jennifer and Black Number Bookkeeping for saving me. I am no longer swimming in my receipts!

    The owner and staff at Capforge have helped us move all 3 of our businesses (2 Corps, 1 LLC) out of our antiquated accounting into a streamlined, functional system.

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but was overjoyed with my experience. Kay was efficient, responsive, thorough, and got back to me quickly with answers to all my questions. She was kind, helpful, and the excellent service had an affordable price tag. The office isn't elegant, the location isn't fancy, but the work done was excellent. I will definitely be using her services again!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.
