Focus Accounting & CPA Firm has helped me with tax filing and consulting services when needed. I must say Mr. Jay and his team have great deal of knowledge, professionalism, and energy. The fact that the team approaches each client with same level of energy and explains the complicated tax process in Layman’s term when needed, I highly recommend folks to use Focus Accounting & CPA Firm’ services.

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

Jumpstart CPAs company has exceeded our expectation in services they provide for small and large companies. Owner and staff are skillful, knowledgeable, willing to go the extra mile with qualified training capabilities. Flexibility and attention to detail have aided in keeping our company on track during a major accounting system restructure with charging our company less than other CPA companies. Jumpstart CPAs staff worked every day right alongside with me though the process step by step. Jumpstart CPAs met with CEO to make sure they were on track with the expectations and long-term company growth. Never sales pushy or wasting our money and always in contact with us. They can troubleshoot any accounting problem when you need it the most. I feel confident in recommending Jumpstart CPAs accounting services. The staff is honest, friendly, on time and explains every step along the way. I chose the most proficient, skillful accounting company to benefit our company’s long-term growth. Just knowing we are in good hands with Jumpstart CPAs and they are apart of our team, helps me sleep better every night!

    Bruce is great. He listens to my problems and always has a great recommendation for solving them. He helped us get our accounting system installed, HR systems in place, set up our company, prepared taxes and as we have grown, helped with complex business issues. Would not hesitate to recommend Bruce for any business help. He's not cheap, but well worth the price.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.
