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.

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!

About

I'm forever passionate about numbers and tech! I am joyfully serving the accounting, bookkeeping, and technology needs of businesses and individuals in Southern California for 28 years! Having been gifted with a talent and passion for numbers, I want to give back! I want to be the first to raise my hand high to offer my accounting and business expertise. Over the past 35 years (I started my career when I was 2 years old - lol!) I have had the honor of working in a field that 'lights me up'. Even after all these years, I still consider a balanced bank statement or accounting report a cause for a celebration! Hard work and an acute understanding of business operations and the fortitude required for success is no stranger to me or my work ethics. My experience is diverse and spans an extremely wide variety of duties in fields from construction to medical, real estate, and manufacturing, to name just a few. I am always willing to pitch in to do whatever it takes to accomplish the task at hand and help in any way possible. Extra mile effort is one of my mottos, both personally and professionally. To me, accounting is far and above just working with numbers. In many ways, it is an endlessly fascinating, ever changing story displayed in specific categories. Using creative thought can enhance the complexion and texture of the story and shed light on areas of need or attention. Throughout my years of accounting work experience just about everything imaginable (and unimaginable) has crossed my desk in one form or another. I have been afforded opportunities to address and effectively handle and deal with far more than I could possibly present in a resume. I bring with me extensive experience, skills, and expertise, which will lend deeply to any accounting endeavor. Having worked with tremendous diversity will also be of great value as I have dealt with many of the challenges facing a variety of businesses first hand. Over the years, I have held a variety of accounting positions advancing from a clerk in the '80s, to controller, and most recently controller/CFO/CEO where I was privileged to serve an amazing spectrum of clientele. To say I am incredibly passionate about accounting and business would be an understatement. I have worked with various main frame applications and numerous accounting related programs; many of them since their infancy. I have led accounting teams, actively participated in a team, and have worked independently. I am reliable, energetic, trustworthy, and take immense pride in my work.

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.
