Kathleen hands down is the best accountant I've used in my 10 years of business. She is very thorough and meticulous about every single detail, very personable, and down to earth. I appreciate her old-school values as well as her pricing and honesty. I have already given her name to several other people and I will never hesitate to refer anybody to her for her accounting services. I wish I had known Kathleen 10 years ago when I first started my business. Highly recommended. Thank you Kathleen. Best regards, The Davis Family

By far the best Tax filing service provider I have seen till today. We moved from Texas last year and hence we decided to go to an accounting firm this time due to complex documentations. We expected a lot of road block while filling as some of the paper work was not in place. But Jay studied our case and helped us getting a refund. Thanks Focus Accounting.

I appreciated her professional manner, her knowledge about my tax situation (I had a foster baby) and that she took the time to understand my financial situation and gave appropriate advise for me. I recommend her highly and will use her again.

Our previous accountant left abruptly and really messed up our books right before tax season. Greg came in and not only fixed previous errors, but was able to learn the business and get us caught up in time for our CPA. Now we will be working on stream lining the accounting department and minimizing costs. Hes on time, professional and fits right in with our employees. Its a big load off my back knowing my books are caught up and correct.

Very happy with them and their rates. Went through an audit for my business with another firm which cost an enormous amount of money. Went through the second with Raymond and it cost a fraction. Absolutely amazing work. Very pleasant to work with and will never go to another auditor again.

I'm so happy to have found CFC/Corina (so is my CPA!). Corina is a true professional. She really knows the 'ins and outs' of bookkeeping and payroll. All tasks are always complete in a prompt, timely manner. Always stress and drama free. She's always there when you need her. Ask for something (once) and its in your inbox before you know it. Her quiet efficiency makes it possible for me to run my small business. I can not recommend CFC/Corina highly enough. Bev Davis / Top Dog - East Bay Pet Care LLC

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.
