I stumbled onto Focus Accounting Firm through Thumbtack and hired Jay due to his responsiveness and willingness to help me in my situation. My husband and I usually prepare our own taxes but this year proved to be more complicated and challenging. Jay helped us out immensely and now I am so relieved. He was thorough yet handled the work quickly and efficiently for a reasonable price! We will be calling him again! Thanks Jay!

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.

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.

Corina is amazing and helped me tremendously when I was starting my business. I had a lot of questions about managing and maintaining my finances and she answered every single one of them! She has continued to help me keep track of things and now that I have independent contractors, her support is critical. She's easy to communicate with, I enjoy spending time with her, and highly recommend her.

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 hired Daniel more than 2 years ago to straighten our QuickBooks program. Daniel completely remapped QuickBooks and got our financials straightened out. We have retained Daniel to assist us in all aspects of our accounting, including preparing our taxes. Since he is a QuickBooks expert, we have been able to drop the QuickBooks support plan, saving us a substantial amount of money. Whenever we have a question or a problem, Daniel always promptly gets us back on track. Whenever we are considering a new program that interfaces with QuickBooks, we always ask Daniel to review the program before we implement it. We are very happy with Daniel, and hope to have a long professional relationship with him.

Wendy Vincent helped me setup QuickBooks for Windshield Chip Repair Business, and she continues to maintain my Books in QuickBooks. I was very pleased that I was able to find someone to do this task for me, because accounting is not my strong suite. Wendy went above and beyond by also doing my tax returns annually, showing me how to improve my credit score. Wendy also assisted me with setting up a computerized version of my invoices that can be done in the field, using a cell phone app, so my invoices to customers are clean and neat which reduces errors. Wendy advised me to switch banks, for security reasons for my business account. The new bank was harder for me to use on the go, so I switched my bank back, and Wendy is working with my current bank that is easier for me to use. I really appreciate her looking out for the security of my business. She is very understanding of my needs, as well as my business needs, when it came to my bank, Wendy used the bank that I prefer and we both win. She also gave me a credit on my account for the cost I incurred to get new security checks.

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.
