    Everything accounting! With our previous accountant, we felt held hostage to the numbers game. With A Plus (Genna), we are being educated about the intrinsics of how the numbers work and how they can work for us. What a blessing to have someone so animated, personable, and professional to work with!

      I highly recommend Krystal for any accounting needs. I met with her and she had so many solutions for my side business, things I didn't even think of before! She is very friendly and attentive - listened to my needs and quickly came up with ideas. We setup the business processes and reporting that provided insights into my business to improve profitability. She covered all the bases and made me feel very comfortable that all my finances are organized and properly tracked. She helped me automate tracking of my spending which was a huge time saver. Now I can focus attention on my passion, instead of manual bookkeeping. Additionally, she helped me with tax planning and making current decisions that will affect my future tax returns. Such as, the purchases I make now and how I can get write-offs later. Super informative! Absolutely love her! Worth every penny!

        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.
