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

Having only recently moved to San Jose, I needed a new CPA. I found Jay and his firm Focus Accounting through Thumbtack. I was very pleased with with Jay's approach to tax work. He's refreshingly approachable and walks you through your return upon completion of his work. He addressed all my questions and then some. Jay also makes solid use of technology. He files electronically and provides secure portals for documentation and digital copies.

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.

Rahim was a real find on this site. Very professional, totally responsive and worked on my tax and accounting issues. He has an attention to detail and was able to suggest different options that I hadn't seen in accountants before. Total 5 star experience.

We hired TMB to do some clean up work after our last bookkeeper. What was supposed to be a quick assignment, quickly turned into a long term relationship. Tamika-Marie, was prompt and thorough in her assessment of our financial status, help us switch to a better accounting platform and mitigated our expenses by adding apps instead of the 12 different systems we were using. I recommend her to any small business looking to re-evaluate the operations.

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 the CEO of a 1 1/2 year old start-up. I originally reached out to JumpStart CPAs for Tax Return services, but quickly realized after communicating with Cimmer that I needed much more than that! I needed an Accounting system in order to properly capture my financial transactions, I needed separate business bank accounts, a payroll service and retirement planning just to name a few!!! Cimmer was able to help me with all of these things, and the Tax return ended up being a very small part of the service she provides. She was able to set up my books and work remotely, and we send data over the internet so it's very efficient. I now have access to my financial and cash flow data all the time and I can make business decisions about the future instead of just recording what happened in the past. JumpStart CPAs is more expensive than others who might be quoting for a similar service, but you get what you pay for!! I am so thankful I found JumpStart CPAs. My business performance is improving now because I understand what's going on! I now have a real Business Advisor, not "just" an Accountant.

We have a small non-profit and were in need of advice and consulting after the departure of our accountant. We found Build Advisory to be incredible. It's a one-stop shop for taxes, bookkeeping, etc. And Mark's energy is amazing. He's patient, logical, understanding, and is willing to work with us and educate us to build capacity for the future. It's incredible. Highly recommend.

George really came through for me in getting the accounting up to date on QuickBooks with very short notice and a very tight deadline. He came to my office immediately, the same day to take on the job and review the scope and understand the details. He worked over the weekend and got it done. There were some issues which need further clarification and these were worked out in a collaborative way I have seldom witnessed. He has the expertise in all the areas I needed, and he is an important member on my team. He's got my business account and my personal taxes from now on.
